    Arcade Cabinets

    If anyone is into or looking to build a Mame/Arcade cabinet, I came across the site below, which has autocad and vcarve files for several cabinets for free download.

    I'm looking to scale one down to a table top version that I can perhaps use a spare 7" tablet in for the screen.

    Now that would be a fun idea!

    Cool! It would be easy enough to convert the DXF into a SketchUp file, too. Or you could do it from the PDF files.

    Make a snapshot from the PDF and save it as an image (JPG and PNG) and import the image into SU. Then trace over it. On the Mac you can import the PDF directly.

    How do you trace over it? Be very specific, please.

    A start on one. The PDF file I selected at random only shows the side, though.

    Love all the guide lines on that. Very logical.
