  3. Update on ElCheapoSD for Atari Lynx and its cartridge shell

You've probably read our previous article - RetroHQ Lynx GameDrive and BennVenn's ElCheapoSD Cartridge Review for Atari Lynx where we've talked about the BennVenn's ElCheapo SD cartridge for Atari Lynx and the fact that it will have an injection moulded shell. Well, after much hard work, BennVenn still had some issues with the injection moulding machine so decided to go a different route for now...

A couple more last minute changes. Our injection molding machine needs upgrades to reliably press the plastic into the thinner cavities of the molds. This could take a little while with slow shipping so we just went out and invested in a 3d resin printer.

The 3D printed resin shells look good in photos but having used one of these printers in the past we know that there are many challenges to overcome with them too. Once a sample shell arrives, we'll have more to say! Though the new design looks quite slick and the addition of the 3D "BennVenn" logo is really cool.
