  • Custom 3d Printed Charging Cradle for the SNES 3DS

    The model is parametric using CADQuery, only problem is that I haven't implemented a way to move the charging pins right or left for the original's off-center port, just forward/back/together/apart. I'm planning to add that soon though, as well as clean up my variables so it's a bit more clear what does what.

    To be fair these grievances are old: I've avoided conda like the plague for - easily - the last 5 years, and they might have cleaned up their act.

    However, I still find the notion of having to install 2 gigs worth of stuff on my machine only to try a simple CAD package for a few hours a rather offending proposition. Call me an old curmudgeon if you have to.

    To be fair to the cadquery folks: they seem to have realized the issue and they now offer what looks like a somewhat self contained binary dowload of the cq-editor package [2].

    Finally, I'll leave you with this, taken from the cadquery homepage itself [1] (note the use of the word "polluting" in there, looks like I'm not the only one feeling this way):

    For those unfamiliar (or uncomfortable) with Anaconda, it is probably best to install Miniconda to a local directory and to avoid running conda init. After performing a local directory installation, Miniconda can be activated via the [scripts,bin]/activate scripts. This will help avoid polluting and breaking the local Python installation. In Linux, the local directory installation method looks something like this
