Re: Is this under extruding or possible bad filament

Inland is a popular, reputable, quality brand. It's not the filament. Something is wrong with your setup - either mechanically or in your slicer settings. He's tested it with a different roll of the same brand of filament with the same settings and it worked correctly. Guessing it was just a bad ba...

Re: Pi Zero powered Gameboy Classic

ahh cool. careful with those activation forces. I did some side by side comparisons with lower AF tacts and the "standard" (as in what the generic bags of 6mm tacts come as) 160gf usually feels too strong. I had some 100gf and 60gf and 100 felt just right while 60 wasn't tactile enough... Didn't th...

Re: Pi Zero powered Gameboy Classic

For the case, I imported a photo of a Gameboy into Adobe Illustrator and basically traced it out then scaled it to the size of the TFT screen. Imported the design into Autodesk Fusion 360 and modeled it myself. Planning to 3D print all the buttons, as I wanted them to be the same scaled dimensions a...

Pi Zero powered Gameboy Classic

Got bored on waiting for Nintendo to release a proper Gameboy Classic so started building my own using a Pi Zero and one of the cheap 1.44 inch SPI TFT screens. Next step is to relearn Eagle and design a circuit board for the controls and SP33's PWM audio circuit
