firstname.lastname@example.org on 4/14/2015 for TMNT
Has a cabinet been cut from drawings: YES (no control panel)
Particle board 3/4"

1x 3/4" Plywood for base, monitor structure and control panel base 4'x8'

Estimated Cabinet Accuracy: 95%
NOTE: The G.I. Joe cabinet is shared with the TMNT single speaker cabinet.
Areas of Variation
Blocking - The blocking (support structure for joining cabinet components) was drawn for use with dadoes. This the makes assembly much easier as far as spacing and marking (if the cabinet is to be cut with a CNC).
Control Panel - contains no joystick and button placement. I do not have an art set to compare with the complete TMNT drawings.
4-player Konami conversion class. Cabinet accurate to within 1". No sideart. by Gozer.

Files to print
The below files are PDF documents of the plans that are printed to scale. These documents can be taken to your local print shop and printed on 36" wide media. The prints can then be applied to the wood and used as a template to cut the side panels of the cabinet. I have only included the side panels and any other panels that may be more difficult to cut.
Cabinet Art Files
No art files are currently available.
Drawing specific notes
This is just a note for the ventilation on the cabinet / power supply. The cabinet has a fan that is mounted in the base of the cabinet and blows air out of the bottom of the cabinet. You need to make sure you cut the sides of the cabinet to allow for the escaping air.
