A little side project. I was digging through patents for old Atari stuff and noticed that the original cartridge shell’s patent was never renewed. No big surprise really, but I thought I would take advantage of the situation, and try my hand at some 3D printing.
I dissected a California Games cart and did all the measurements I needed with a pair of calipers. After double checking my measurements, and making some slight adjustments to the original design to accommodate thicker walls that the 3D printing process required (and adding our BitJag logo in place of the Atari logo), I modeled it in Blender, and sent it off to the printers. Below are the results, and if you would like to purchase some, I have made them available on Shapeways for the cost of printing. I hope this might help others to replace damaged shells, and maybe even use them for a future Atari Lynx homebrew release. Enjoy!
