This is the first model I've ever done in Fusion 360 and I am afraid I am lacking experience. :lol:
We've all been there. Actually Fusion 360 has been my first real parametric CAD software. I've watched a ton of videos about Inventor and then Fusion came out and since I'm a Mac user I went for it.
My first model was more than just "messy" :lol:

I hope I can make some progress on the display cutting jig and adapter.
Your measurements are slightly off there as well, but I can probably fix them once I'm at it.

Messy or not, this is an incredible achievement and one can only learn from your approach to object design.
I wish more folks in here shared the fruit of their labour rather than going straight to selling 3d prints :D

If you notice anything being in the wrong place please don't hesitate to tell me. I'll fix it as soon as I can. I tried to measure as good as I can, but unfortunately not all GB cases are equal in proportions. I have two original cases here that are almost identical, but not quite. And a couple of my repro cases are just way off. :? Also I just might have screwed up when measuring. :lol:

I've got to say, I actually like it when people sell their parts. Since I don't have easy access to a 3D printer it is the best way for me to get parts. Trial and error via 3dhubs for things I design myself would cost me a lot more, I guess. And I really don't mind paying people for all the time and work they put into their models.

if you don't mind take a look at the Fusion I'm working on.
I've had to remove the XY buttons draft and fillet (nice work) in order to reposition the holes according to the AIO ones, which in my understanding are currently the most accurate ones we have.
Often measuring with a caliper and then working out offsets from multiple measurements may add human error and things can fall off, but it's totally expected. This is why I measure, print templates, try fitting and then re-model.
Having a well calibratred Ultimaker 2 helps A LOT.
There's work in progress in this file, hope you don't mind :)

I'm ok with people selling 3d prints, as long as they also share the models with community folks who want to adapt/print themselves.
I also always try to share editable projects (here's an example https://github.com/ubidefeo/Bus-Pirate-Case).
As for the money part, I rarely design things I don't have time for, and when I do I have no problem sharing the work no matter how many hours I've put into it. It's the reason I can become good at what I do :)

I made a video update with the status of my parts design, if you care to know :)

Sorry for the late reply. I currently don't have much free time, but I'll see if I can find some this weekend to look at your files. :)

Thanks for the video and the exposure (Is exposure the right word? My vocabulary is lacking again. :lol: ).
I was very happy to hear that you don't want to butcher an original working Game Boy! :) It is always a little heartbreaking when people do that...
Also: Nice cutout around the X/Y buttons – I haven't seen that one before. It fits in well with the black/white color scheme.
Thanks for sharing the video! I am always interested to see what people use the model for.

Has anyone tried printing a case from the file? Wondering if I should try.

The XY buttons looks very smart. Very good idea. :)

Several people have. There's some pictures in this thread. The most complete print I've seen so far was from reipet: https://sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=5166

Just printed the front half of the shell last night. Came out really good. I'll post pic when I get home. The only issue that I've noticed so far is the screw posts printed with no screw holes. Was this done intentionally, or do I have an issue on my end? I haven't had time to check the files yet. It's not really a bad thing, I don't mind drilling and it sure adds flexibility when acquiring hardware. Just thought I'd mention it. Overall, AMAZING model so far

Haven't printed the back half yet but here's my front. Glow-in-the-dark PLA. I think a little bit of sanding (where supports were printed) and it'll be top notch. The LEDs on kites board shine through just the right amount too. Thinking about doing an all glow-in-the-dark build with this CSO now.
