As my first post, I just want to share with you all a 3d design I published the last month. It is a cover designed to be used with gdemu that incorporates a SD Card reader and fits the gdrom unit place. It makes easier to access the card and the disc change button:

The model also has a pcb support that makes the gdemu to be more solid placed, and allows the air to flow correctly:




If someone has a 3d printer and wants to make one for himself or a friend, thingiverse's model can be found on my blog, here:
There can also be found more photos and a video.

I wish you like it :)

Thanks guys, glad to see you have liked it.

@Greg2600, the 3d design is published on the link, you can take it to a printing service (or a friend XD) in order to make one for you.
I have been thinking about publishing it on ebay, but i have been busy the last month

I'll have to ask around. Where did you get the SD card extender? Does it HAVE to be a particular model?

I used this one (https://es.aliexpress.com/item/SD-Male-To-SD-Female-SDHC-SDXC-Card-Reader-Extension-Adapter-Cable-Extender-For-Phone-Car/32820269171.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.410a63c0Bc7 Sf9). I haven't tried others, but all seems to have the same pcb.
