Hi guys, today i will present the USB2DB15 Consolization Ver.
It was asked for alot of people that work on this kind of project where turn a CPS2/3 on a console style, like @avramce OMVS.

Extra features that are not present on DB15 Ver.:
- 20 pins brook cable standard and redundance on screw terminals (will be present on the final version)
- Pins forLED
- Pins for USB
- Pins for memory reset

Just like the 2.0 (All-in-one) PCB, it will be exclusive for supporters for a while, so if you need one, just enter in touch.

Anyone working on a 3D Printed case for these yet?
I'm trying to wrap my mind around how I would design a case. The problem is, there are no screw holes to hold it down or notches to brace against. If I go with my normal design, trying to plug in the USB would shove the board out the other side. Maybe I could design something where the two halves clamp down on the board using four screws? I don't know what the button does, but I assume users need access to it. I don't have one, so it's hard to verify any of this.

Ideally the board could be designed to fit in the molded case the undamned adapters use (and somebody finds the source for those).

If you look well the PCB, there's holes for screws.

You can design your own if you like, it's open source.

Those look more like pin holes than screw holes. What size screw is intended?

What do I use to view .brd or .sch file? Autodesk Eagle maybe? I should be able to get measurements off of that, but it'll be a cold day in hell before I do business with Autodesk again.

Attached is a photo of the kind of case design I would normally do.

That's right, Eagle.

You don't need that size of hole for a small PCB.

A professional 3D designer will know how to make it right.
