I understand that we need to build it according to have a place for components but having something close enough to the original to get a quote is a good starting point. Anyone know who here on the forum is a 3D guru to design a new case with the parts we have in the majority of the builds so they all have a place?MiL0 wrote:I think designing a new case based on the DMG dimensions might be the safest solution, from a legal perspective. It'd be a shame if Nintendo shut this all down because we'd infringed on their IP. This also allows us to design it so that all the components fit perfectly.
Also, further down the road, a kickstarter might be quite a good option for mitigating cost risks and guaging interest.
I have someone who I have worked with before on 3D models and is quite good at building around PCBs and all but this is a big project and I don't want to bother him with it until we have an idea of the pricing of manufacturing and see if it's going to be worth it or not.
