3D models of the arcade cabinet

I am getting closer to doing a bit more work on the MAME cabinet.

I have found Google Sketchup invaluable. It’s a great tool to help me visualize what pieces go where. Using it the other day I realized that my Galaga control panel was going to have a few dramas when mounted on the base. I had forgotten about the curved ‘corners’, which led to a few millimeters of the base poking out beneath the control panel.

Luckily, it presented the perfect opportunity to implement a strip of timber that can be used to mount some 110° cabinet hinges. I planned it out in Sketchup. The model can be found by clicking the image below:

Hopefully I’ll be able to get a bit of spare time this Australia Day long weekend holiday to get some construction done…
