    I made a case for the Nintendo Gamecube controller adapter to allow it to work inside of a standard half-height 5.25" drive bay in a computer. I made the screw holes a little small on purpose, you will need to tap/drill them to make the screws fit in the holes correctly. The inside screw holes are made for the original ones in the adapter.

    Took my 3D printer around a half day to print on it's highest settings. I included the skp, stl and dae files that I used to design and print this.

    If you haven't already, consider replacing the USB connector on the GCN controller adapter with a 5-pin header connector. That will let you connect it directly to a USB header on the system board.

    I do not have a spare header, but I do have two that are half used. One day I would like to make spiters to reclaim the wasted ports for this.
