If you damage a 3D printed part during the install, please reach out and we can do a direct sale for a new part. However, no free replacements will be given for damage caused by your installation.
This is a Remixed version of Xipher’s Gameboy SP Slab (V1). We also contributed to his V2 Slab with our bottom accessory port, battery nut area, and helped him troubleshoot issues like with his top back panel when used with the Game Boy camera. For posterity, here’s Xipher giving us permission to sell his Slab beyond the original “non-commercial” license.
