My new Cumana drive ;)

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.

Any chance you have the case design available somewhere, or know the dimensions easily? I fancy an afternoon designing a case ..

Let me finish board first. Anyway, what is wrong with my case? Is metal, solid, good painted ,cheap (approx 8 GBP) i print only front panel. Printing all case take long time and 3d print is still plastic 3D print.

Nothing is wrong with the case! I just envision an Atmos-styled case, anyway, and thought maybe I could boot up OpenSCAD and try to make one ..

Ok, good news and bad news.

Good news is:
Prototype working as dream ,today i finished redraw final PCB version board and send it to factory. Is under production now. Metal cases ordered and under construction.

Bad news is,
I cannot do big batch (what will be cheaper) without preorder , sorry. I do lot of other projects and i have electronic components everywhere (this mean , frozen lot of money) so i list 10 ready assembled units on my selling page SMR, https://www.sellmyretro.com/offer/details/40497

So, as you wish, you can buy it in preorder (cheaper with extras like pendrive, cable ) or later but will be more expensive.
