New 3D Printable Object: NES Cart Covers

I designed this simple NES cart cover to use as little material as possible, but still be robust enough to print even on janky printers. Hopefully this will help keep your NES carts safe and sound for future generations. It’s available on thingiverse for the low price of FREE.
