My 1st CSO, 2nd build

Post by reipet » Sun Mar 24, 2019 12:11 am

Hello all,

I wanted to share my 2nd build using the Cirucit Sword with you.
My 1st one was based on AIO with completely 3D printed shell.

Now Im using:
Kites CSO Set
3rd Party Shell
Dextech Battery
Gorilla Glass Screen
2 fans
PSP Joystick
some 3D Printed Parts
and bit of epoxy for the Screen Bracket

Otherwise no use of glue.
I have taken all the 3D prints available here and optimized them to improve cable routing etc.
Took me several iterations to get the result I wanted

Compared to to others the biggest difference is that I moved the rear buttons on the side so the GBZ does not lie on them.

See the pics:

Things to do:
1. The Screen Protector seems to small for the shell. Need to find a way to close the gap with some kine of Glas glue. Any Ideas?
2. Add Glas Fibers to show the LEDs on the front of the shell.
3. Add Wireless Charging
4. Optimize Software and get emulators running better. (e.g. PSP)

Nice looking build, did you design the 3D pieces?

More Pics.

Can you see the gap around the screen glass. Any Idea how to fill that professional?

As you can see on the picture the Gorilla Glass i ordered a while ago is a bit to small for the Shell.

Any idea how I could fill the gap with messing up the glass or the shell?
I also feel the Glass is not sticking very well so I was thinking transparent Epoxy but didnt find anything suitable yet.
