Hi guys!! Can someone tell me a standard case for Mister that has a good price? I'm sorry but I do not have a 3D printer ... yet :(

There is no such thing as a standard MiSTer case. So either you print it(or order from some 3rd party printing company), or find some generic case with compatible size.

Sorry Sorgelig, I have not explained myself well, I was really referring to a generic box with a compatible size. I have looked at several but I am not sure that they are good and have no problems with the connections.

If you will use some generic case targeted for DIY projects, then you will definitely have some problems which you should solve. Like making the holes, or even cut some parts to shorting/extending some case dimensions.

Before 3D printers started to be available, i've used just plastic sheets to glue them together into the box. So, you can try this way.

Thank you very much everyone for the responses! Cvenditti, my problem is that I have the horizontal memory model ... :( I need something bigger

And over the holes and cut, there is no problem, Sorgelig, but I would like to not modify it as little as possible.

If someone has my model of memory and a perfect box, let me know that I will be very grateful.

:wink:

I just ordered a 3D print from a nearby company. Perfect fit of the case and no problems with making holes.

But Newsdee, is not it very expensive? I looked for it and in my opinion it is very expensive. How much has it cost you?

Aliexpress sells 3D printers around $140.
It's worth to buy the printer than order the case for 69€

I think I paid about 35 EUR. I suppose it depends where you are and what local printers are willing to do. It is also possible to rent some time in a Makerspace, take a 3D Printer course, and do it yourself (and you learn some stuff along the way). I just went for speed and convenience.

I am not very savvy on these things, but perhaps making an acrylic case that can be laser cut from one sheet might be cheaper?
I know one of the guys making ZxUno and MiST clones prefers that method and his cases are pretty ok and not too expensive (if you read this feel free to pipe in... you know who you are :) )

I just got the case it is a pretty good fit. I just have to drill some holes and cut out the side panel for the I/O.
This case can accommodate XS and regular vertical SDRAM (Pictures with regular vertical SDRAM):

Wow cvenditti !! That box looks great! My problem is my type of memory, but I could cut it. And I could also use an acrylic box, great idea Newsdee!
Hmm, I need to think about this, and see what's better.

I'll buy the 3d printer in the not too distant future, but not right now.

Thank you all, guys!!! :)

Another way to use MiSTer is to place it inside some retro computer case like Amiga or Commodore 64. That's why I/O board has connectors for external buttons and LEDs.
Both Amiga and C64 cases are recently produced on Kickstarter.
