So the laser cut top pieces arrived but I forgot to allow for tolerances so I have to sand the edges a bit. I have now amended the .dxf so that it takes fit tolerances into consideration. 

I've also started printing another prototype which takes into account all of the small changes I've made and test fitted the controller ports and IR eye.

Hi all,   I built an xbox mini a few years ago and designed a case based loosely on ghostavels well known xbox mini. I had it laser cut from plexiglass and it turned out ok, but could be bet

So it's been a while but I've done a bit more work on this case and intend on releasing the design files so anyone can 3d print one if they choose to (once it's finalised). I've been 3d modelling

So I've tested the tinted plexi lid with the dual oled displays and the effect is pretty good, not too bright or distracting

 

Looking really good. How are the screens mounted to the case? I see the holes for them, but couldn't see anything to mount them to it.

There are small screw posts on the underside but they could also be epoxied into place. The posts make it more tricky to 3d print but it's doable by slicing the back top edge and printing that separately, then printing the top part upside down.

They are currently not screwed or glued but are just held in place by the fact it's a snug fit. This isn't the final case so I don't want to fix them into it

Very cool design! Following this thread to watch how it progresses.

Sorry, were you on xbox-scene with that username? Just sounds really familiar.. I was MasterGouken on there and made an xbox mini thread way back in 2009 I think

Yup! I remember your Xbox mini from back then too. Your case mods have always been next-level.

Awesome, it's good to see another person from the old x-s days still on the scene! Thanks, we didn't have 3d printing back then so I had to make do 😄

Its a real loss to the community x-s was my goto site and so many shortcuts and guides I had went there. Never had the sense to offline copy anything as I just thought it would always be there.

I believe you can still find snapshots of the site on archive.org's wayback machine, just type the sites full web address into the search bar.

Unfortunately it's very incomplete and with a lot of missing pages but tuxuser has put a mostly functional forum archive up. It's read only and it wouldn't let me log in but a lot of the old info and tutorials are still there, just click on the forums tab on the main page:

So I've revised things again, now the HDD attaches to the underside of the top piece eliminating the need for a hdd bracket at all, thanks for the idea @sweetdarkdestiny :)

This frees up more motherboard mount points for different CPU and GPU heatsink options, I might be scrapping my cpu bracket and going with 2 Evercool VC-RF VGA & Chipset Coolers, only £10 each on ebay.

 

Just waiting on the Star Tech SATA to IDE adapter and more filament to re print the entire case after lots of adjustments, I've gone for some Geeetech silk silver PLA, hopefully it'll look good :)

Looks good, to me.

I got some PLA+ in silver and it prints lovely, cheap too.

What brand?

E-DA from eBay. I have an Ender3 and have a lot of filament, some of the expensive stuff and some from companies who make printers. 
This stuff being the cheapest I have ever bought I just though might be good enough for prototyping and things that I wanted quick etc.

Turns out that it prints really nicely and has a really smooth finish, and the colours are crisp. Also bonus works using the same setting the really expensive stuff I have uses.

I ended up buying several rolls and will buy more once I run out.

      Hey all.  Sorry if this has been posted, but I searched and couldn't really find anything.  I have a 1.0 Xbox that was handed to me by a friend.  He said he couldn't remember much about it, but that him and his kid tried to mod it a long time ago, and now it isn't working.  Upon opening it, I found a pin header, no modchip, tsop points soldered, and the underside D0 pad ripped off.  When I try to start the xbox, it cycles power 3 times then frags out.  I'm assuming this is due mainly to the ripped D0 trace.  I've tried repairing the trace, and bridging the two pads connected by the green line, but I can't seem to get the solder to stick.  Is there any other way to repair this, or is this the only way?  Relatively new to xbox modding so any tips would be appreciated.  Thank you!

      Hi,
      I have a hard modded OpenXenium chip with a 1 TB WD Blue HDD.  I have everything set up and I am trying to get more than 200 GB - with more than  > 200 GB left on a partition.  Filezilla is not letting me do that.  I am just trying to transfer the titles.  They are all HDD ready for transfer but they do not go through at a certain point.  They  all become failed transfers.  The bios I am using is unleashed x from the OGXBOX installer.  It was not flashed by the program but was transferred by my network.  It is a CEE bios.   I switch dashboard sometimes.  The only one that I have on there that is not preinstalled is Emulation Station. I had used the DVDmulleter to get the bios necessary.  The HDD has been partitioned correctly having being split from F to G the remaining left.  I am fairly new to this and any advice to help would be beneficial.

      I have a Jet Set Radio Future save that I have played around 25 hours in that I would like to be able to play on my console, but I haven't been able to figure out how to resign the save. The save has an "error reading JSRF save data" and doesn't let me use my save. The save originated in Cxbx-R and it won't allow me to move the save to or from the console without this error occurring. Not sure how to proceed from here, and would be grateful if anyone wanted to help me out. I have attached the save if that can help, thanks for your time.
