[...] Here's the start of my "GBZ Woody" project :) First test cut of the front shell in a scrap piece of walnut, a double sided CNC operation. The outside turned out pretty good, but the inside will need some modifications. Probably have to enlarge some of the stand offs and button guides and maybe make the outer wall a little thicker. In the end, I'll be using a more dense piece of wood. Possibly some purpleheart or jatoba, etc.

This is my first venture into a GBZ and I'm not quite sure what else I will need here or if I could maybe 3d print an insert instead of machining the inside parts. Just getting a start and learning/figuring it out as I go.
that looks fabulous!
I would be very much interested in a complete shell too. in case you decide manufacturing this outstanding wooden shell I'd be very happy to purchase one of these. anyways, looking forward to further updates!

Man, I wish i had found this model sooner. Amazing work. i've been working on my own giant version lately. planning on making a fully functional GBZ that's around 6"x9" roughly. I redesigned the battery compartment to hold 3.6V 2600 mah LI batteries for super long life. again, nice work! p.s. love the wood too.Image

Thanks for the file, it's awesome, that's what brought me to this forum!
I'll give it a try since I have a friend with a 3D printer, but later on, I hope I'll be able to do a case out of something rarer/cooler, like with wood and/or brass parts. If I ever manage to do it, I'll make sure to post the results!

@neolith - Came across this page on boxypixel.com. Looks like a modified version of your CAD:

Yeah, I came across that one, too. Thanks for the heads-up.

I am not entirely happy seeing someone actually selling cases based upon the model as this was supposed to be a community thing for people that want to work on a case themselves. But I'm not sure if there is something I can do about it now, I'm afraid. First of all the design isn't mine in the first place, it is a copy of Nintendo's. And second, I didn't put any license on it. The next time I am putting something online it'll be under a CC license or something similar.

Unfortunately this is always the end result of putting anything online with or without a license which is often ignored. Would be nice a mention or at least ask permission to use it. It's not your own model as you said but you did the work to model it and shared it which many people would not.

Just to clear this up. I absolutely did NOT use anyone's model to create my CAD. I'm a design engineer, and have made every single model from scratch in Solidworks.

Thanks for clarifying that for us.

I think most people use a glue called e6000, i was too impatient to wait for some to come and used super glue from the pound shop... seems to have worked alright though.
