Updated 3D Model

Some more work on the model, reduced the depth of the panel, dimensions are not final.

First time using Sketchup as well, pretty nice program.

Stuff still to do

  1. Make wooden sections rather than  a single block.
  2. Finalise dimensions.
  3. Create a bevelled socket for the joystick mounting plate so the top of the plate is flush with the top of wooden panel.
  4. Add output/input ports.
  5. Add USB hub.
  6. Add Start, Coin and Exit buttons
  7. Possibly introduce a fan into the design.
  8. Give the box some curves to make it look nicer.
  9. Add some rubber pads on the bottom panel for grip.

And then build a prototype so I can feel the size of the box.
