3D Printer Shop 'Pixelwizard' Recreates Missing Retro Computer Covers & Parts

3D-Printed-Retro-Computer-Replacement-PartsWhen you lose the cover for your Amiga 1200's expansion port, or even worse damage the front door to your Commodore 1702 monitor's control panel, what do you do? Similar to the Nintendo Game Boy's battery cover, replacing these individual parts is a difficult task requiring you to rely on eBay users to lists spares, as and when they find them. That's all about to change though as a 3D printing enthusiast has set up shop selling those easily lost parts from retro computers and consoles.

Starting out with a selection of Commodore based replacements, online shop Pixelwizard has begun providing retro gamers with the all important parts needed to fix up their kit. All printed from scratch using accurate 3D models of the originals as reference, all sales come in white nylon plastic with a matte finish and slight grainy feel. Looking through each product's page, you'll soon notice how each and every one of these newly printed pieces fits into place perfectly, at what also appears to be a reasonable price too.

As of speaking here's what's currently available thanks to the wonders of 3D printing:

While all of these products may be for Commodore systems, Pixelwizard does leave things open for consoles and handhelds too. Although there are no products currently in the category, there is a section marked for Nintendo hardware - one we can only assume will soon be flooded with Game Boy battery covers and Nintendo 64 expansion port flaps. THat said, should you be looking for a specific part, this might be the one shop you want to drop a line.
