Re: 3D Pinter Choice - Kit - For Printing Cartridges

Dave needs the STL file. Once he has his printer set up and working he'll need to slice it using skeinforge or slic3r to make the gcode file correct for his printer.

Re: NES + Tetris

My first half decent game.

Found my Gameboy and ordered a cart off ebay for the princely sum of £1.50.

Tbh I'll probably just keep playing the NES version as im getting the hang of it now, but can't hurt if I need a quick fix when out and about.

Re: NES + Tetris

Gave in and grabbed an emu and got 6634 on my first try, I can totally see why the game is so addictive.

Does anyone know much about NES's on the forum? If they are fairly easy to repair I might get a cheap broken one from ebay and prod it with a soldering iron.

Re: 3D print Acorn Atom case

100 micron layers are almost indistinguishable to the human eye, a 50 micron layer would probably do the trick or be good enough.

Yeah I know I could just grab an emu version to play it. I kinda want it on the original hardware though.
