Make Your Own OUYA Game Console Case!


In San Francisco this week, the OUYA game console is having its official launch party. The record blasting Kickstarter project will begin shipping to tens of thousands of backers, but you can already get your hands on the console! Kinda. Read on.

OUYA started with the mission of bringing the indie gaming revolution to the TV, which they say usually leaves independent developers out. It’s a total game changer, and that pun is completely intended. The goal of making console game development open to everyone is one we love, and we’re glad to have our own slice of the project.

In the spirit of keeping things open, OUYA handed over the files for the console box itself, allowing the MakerBot Design Team to turn them into 3D-printable designs. Now anyone who buys an OUYA will be able to download the enclosure from MakerBot Thingiverse, customize, and make it in the color of filament they prefer. We like the red one.


Right now on Thingiverse, you can find the .stl files for the enclosure, and we’ll share the working files soon. The components are optimized specifically for the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer, and we’ve added print instructions with recommended settings. However, you’re free to experiment with settings.

Check out more about OUYA on their website. If you’re not excited already, maybe this will help: they have Minecraft!

UPDATE! The working file (.3dm) is now available for download, too.

    Should be noted that the micro USB port opening on this model is improperly placed and needs to be moved about 1mm towards the center of the console.
