I grew up in the 80s, probably the glory days of arcade gaming, so I always wished I had an arcade machine of my own with real arcade joystick and buttons. Fairly recently, I built a 3D printer from kit, so I thought I should put it to good use and make myself a desktop arcade machine.
Over a few weeks, I ordered all the electronic parts I needed, like the controller, LCD display, Raspberry Pi 3, etc. I then did all the 3D modelling and spent over 100 hours printing the parts. Also, I wanted my arcade machine to have a lot of detail, so I also created things like a faux coin slot, etc. To give it the professional finish, I also designed the artwork which I sent to a commercial printer to have it printed on vinyl sticker.

Hi Christopher Tan I love it, can you tell me which kit you bought
Hi Christopher Tan I love it, can you tell me which kit you bought and can i find it on ebay also how many filaments did it cost, im new to 3d printing also what software did you use for your 3d files.
How did you 3D printed the entire machine including the screen and other electronics?
Very smart/creative. I love it.
Very cool and one of the reasons I've resisted buying a 3d printer (because I'd be building stuff like this until I had no more room for stuff)
Just bought a 3d-printer to make my own. Will attempt a dual fightstick with a video out for tv. Gotta just say how impressed I am with the finishing of the printed panels. The smooting and paint is great how you took the time to make it look that nice!
Ive searched high and low for a version of SF 3rd strike, and cannot find it. 🙁
wow nice display can you say what kind of screen you used in this Project?
Impressive man! This extra space for hands is well caught. Very good 😉
Very nice. Like that you extended the control panel to make it comfortable 🙂
Very nice !!
Where can i download the parts for printing?
Really nice, i wish i had one!
Nice job, well done 🙂
