Aladdin's Pants. A mount for a bare game cartridge or disk to hung on the wall, be easily removable to be played, and be as inconspicuous as possible. They're named so because, well, the design reminds me of Aladdin's pants.
I've designed for:
- Nintendo NES
- Gameboy / Gameboy Color / Gameboy Advance
- DS / 2DS / 3DS
- Sega Master System
- Sega Mega Drive / Genesis / Nomad
- Sega Game Gear
- Commodore 64
- Atari 2600
- CD / DVD
Most use a similar method to hold the cart except for the Atari VCS (2600), DS and Turbografx HUCard which are more traditional "slot holders" rather than fingers that go up inside the cartridge.
PS I could design on req: TI-99 or PSP game disk which I have on hand, or any other cartridge if you mail me one. Contact me for more information.
Best results will come from printing these mounts in a vertical position, and using a zigzag support only over the base plate will issue great results with minimal time. Once the supports are removed, the mount requires no trimming for a snug fit. You can certainly print without any support and still have a functional part, but I saw little drawback with adding support.
While I did have success printing the model on their backs, they required significant trimming to get the cartridges to fit well, so, not recommended.
