Custom parts and enclosures

Solidworks Button Model

This model is for all button caps that we 3D printed - 6 in total. It is in .stl format as it was converted to this format for 3D printing. All other Solidworks files will also be in .stl format.

Solidworks D-Pad Cover

This is the Solidworks 3D model for the D-Pad for our ScratchBoy. The D-Pad is a staple of gaming devices and is composed of up, down, left and right keys. We 3D printed the cover to our DPad to rest on the mechanical buttons that route into the board.

Solidworks Back Case

This is the 3D Model for the back of our case. The back of the case houses all of the technology of our device, and is closed off by the cover. We 3D printed the back case out of PLA.

ScratchBoy Cover

This is PDF for the cover of our device. The cover is to be glued to the back case to secure all of the components. We laser cut our cover out of 1/4 inch clear acrylic so that the user can see the technical components while they play with the ScratchBoy.

Schematics

PCB

This is the theoretical circuit board that was designed to power our device. However, it was not able to print in time.
