Bartop Arcade Notes:
V1.: uploaded 4/23/18 @ 11pm (see bottom for changes)
This was a pleasure to build. I spent a couple weeks off and on designing, tweaking, and cutting this file. Please let me know how you like it, or have any questions. email@example.com
NOTE: Some changes may need to be made based off what hardware you use (Monitor, Joystick and buttons, and speakers.
NOTE: It woulld benefit to have an L bracket mount so you can change pieces in and out for different cuts to make sure everything lines up precise when done.
4x8x1/2" MDF (Uses roughly 3/4 of the sheet) Measure your thickness. All full depth cuts are set at .530. Adjust as needed.
2x4x1/4" MDF All full depth cuts are set at .25". Adjust as needed.
Epoxy or CA Glue
8 truss head mDF screws
Monitor of choice: Modify Monitor Cutout to match. NOTE: overall width may need to be modified to fit your monitor (i.e. you are putting in a widescree monitor. Pieces that will need to be width modified for cut: Monitor panel, Joystick panel, Top, Marquee, Marquee bottom panel, Front Bottom, Bottom, back, and Back Door Panel. ***Don't forget to widen the back door panel so you have enough room to install your monitor.

Table saw for piece cutouts
Router or router table with round-over bit for edges. I used a .25" rounover bit
Design and Cut Notes:
Step 1: Go ahead and cut out all of your pieces on the Table Saw if you have one. See cutsheet pic on CutRocket.
Step 2: CNC cuts
Font used is Perfect Dark. Can be downloaded here: https://www.dafont.com/search.php?q=perfect+dark
Note: Cut in this order for minimal bit changeouts. THis is where an L Bracket comes in so you have a permanent zero location. the Shapeoko will remember this zero whether you turn it off and back on or not. You can always come back to this start point which will allow you to run thru the bits in series. Cut all 1/4" cuts first. Remove pieces and cut remaining 1/4" pieces. Then swap over to 1/8" bit, then 1/32 bit. This will speed up your cut time tremendously.
SIDES: 1/4" Flat Endmill
