CNC Plans for Bartop based on Weecade

Post by sharpfork » Tue Feb 26, 2013 8:08 pm

Degenatrons from the KADE team created CAD CNC plans for a bartop based on Koenig's Weecade project.

These plans are open source and available for download from

Like all KADE related hardware, the plans are licensed under Creative Commons BY-SA 3.0

These plans include an AutoCAD drawing file for CNC use and other resources to help you with the build including templates for drilling control panels (1P and 2P options), templates for drilling speaker grills and templates to assist with baton placement.

Degenatrons also produced a video guide to building a bartop arcade cabinet based on the WeeCade design.

Feel free to adapt and improve the plans and contribute to the open source project.

HaRuMaN from BYOAC has modified the CNC plans and has made his plans available as open source too.

Thanks for the file, just increased the width to be more confortable for two players... And added screws to better hold the internal parts..

how much wider did you make it? Do you think it helps with 2p?

Made it with 500mm, it helps when you have a large family... :.)

I have a precut kit derived from the weecade plans. What I can't figure out for the life of me is the baton placement. I have downloaded plans from here and other sites and none seem to have any measurements regarding the placement of the batons. Also, the batons I purchased based off of what I read are 1/2" but they seem small. Has anyone else used this size baton or did you go larger? Any info would be greatly appreciated, I am dying to assemble this!

Hi, I have a pre-cut cab based on the Weecade plans. I watched a video here, downloaded the plans and have done the same at other sites. I'm curious if other people are using 1/2" batons or larger ones. Also, it looks like people just put the batons where they prefer but I was hoping to find measurements somewhere if possible. Thank you.
