And now, box for the controller.

This is the right place to discuss on how to implement hardware vsync, adding a VIA or AY chipset, puting multiple roms, or how to design a new flash expansion card.

The same guy who designed the box for the AmpliBus, has designed a box for the controller and one disk drive. You can see the good work at: http://retrowiki.es/viewtopic.php?f=40& ... p200086115 :shock:

Nice !
Maybe that could be done for the Oric computer and the Atmostrat project.

Perhaps you need a big 3D printer for print a case for Oric.

Whatever we need a big printer (i didn't have one yet), it's a very good idea to share it.
Thanks a lot

I started with the right one using ABS material, but the result was extremely fragile -
the supports broke before printing was finished. The left and the middle boxes are
from PLA material and they are really shiny and beautiful !
Except the material, it's important to have enough patience - in my case ~20 hours per each single part! :shock:
The color theme is 'Oric-1' related, if one day I have good red/black material I'll reprint in Oric Atmos style :).
