My Modern Arcade Machine Cabient Plans

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hey everyone, long time lurker, first time poster. I've decided to share my modern arcade machine plans, in hopes it can give people an idea on if they want to make an arcade machine.

My designs are released for free, I have PDF and AutoCAD files available as well. https://xtremeultracabs.com/2020/08/27/xtreme-ultra-2-player-arcade-machine-cabinet-plans/

Moderators let me know if this is allowed or in the wrong section!

Thanks! :)

Ripped off from Xtreme Gaming Cabinets in Australia.  Their machines are the best in the world!

here is a link to the real deal:

https://www.xtremegamingcabinets.com.au/

https://www.ultracustomcabs.com.au/

So they are similar. Heck it even looks like the 3/4 cabinet I built. I see no reason to remove the post. Plus he is not selling the plans. They are free.

You could take any upright cabinet and find similarities, besides some rare examples that have radical designs. Most are designed relatively similarly. Besides the control panel, his and those do share some similarities for sure. However, that does not mean that he intentionally ripped them off. If I were to make a cabinet tomorrow without directly referring to a previous design, I would still end up designing something very generic and thus having an appearance akin to many before it.

Well, if he openly admits he based the design off of those cabinets then what is the issue? It is not like he is trying to hide anything or lie about it.

Agreed and again he is not selling the plans. So he copied plans and giving them away free. I find it interesting is the company he copied the cabinet design from is selling arcade cabinets loaded with roms they have no legal right to sell / distribute. So which is a worse offense.
