A custom glass lens - This is a custom boxypixel lens that has a black boarder sized for full screen viewing.
Buttons - The A,B,X,Y buttons and the directional keypad are machined aluminum and available for purchase. Any plastic game boy advance D-pad can be used. HOWEVER the A,B,X,Y buttons are custom to this shell. You can purchase them here, or download and print 3D printed buttons I have uploaded.
The rear flat panel can be purchased as sheet metal, or acrylic.
Please refer to our FAQ page if you have further questions.
1. Freeplay allows a few different configurations for buttons on their boards. In order to use these boxy pixel shells you must use the Freeplay silicone "nipple" type switches for the A,B,X and Y buttons. (See sample PCB in images)
2. By default, this slim design does not fit the stock heatsink that comes with the Freeplay CM3 Kit. It also does not accommodate the rear buttons or fan that come with their L2/R2 Add-on board. However, these Boxy Pixel housings are modular and built so that you can simply remove rear flat panel and design a rear piece to suit your custom needs. We will release additional add on modules soon.
3. If raw aluminum is purchased (No anodize), it will come as is from machining. Some cleaning, and/or finishing will be needed. 3M fine sanding pads work well. Polishing compound can be use to achieve a shine fairly easily. In short, these are sold to those that would like to sand, polish, paint, or finish on their own.
4. This housing may fit the Freeplay Zero if your PCB board has 4 rubber nipple type buttons. I cannot offer support for fitting if you chose to do so.
