Lots of cart owners have asked about shells. Up 'till this point there haven't really been any other options other than cannibalising an existing M5 game cart. This isn't really an option due to the rarity of these beasties. This is why I didn't really cater for casing a cart in the first iterations of the board design, opting for something pleasing to the eye.
Now I have a 3D printer that is all changing. Another M5 fan has published a design for a shell that holds a 'standard' PCB and I have used this as the basis for my own modification.
The first attempt is promising. I have re-designed the cart PCB to include some detents that will, with an appropriately designed shell, hold it securely in place.
With a slight alteration to the case stand-offs the previous (pre-May 2019) PCBs can be held, and secured with a tiny blob of hot glue.
I will probably make these shells for those who want one but aren't able to print their own. I will also be publishing the .STL files as a remix of the original design - see the link at the top of the post.
