First 3D Printed MaKey-MaKey Case! #makeymakey #makeymakeymonday


A number of people, including yours truly, have had our eye on making useful 3D printed enclosures and brackets for the MaKey-MaKey — but Jensa beat us to the punch. (Also check out his excellent Wave Shield holder kit for the Adafruit Music & Sound Add-on Pack for Arduino!)

Here’s what he had to say about this controller:

Junior loves playing Canabalt with his MakeyMakey, but said it was uncomfortable to hold. This controller was drawn by him and modeled in Rhino.

There is now a “makeymakey” tag on Thingiverse, so I expect to see a bunch more options for 3D printed cases soon. (Including mine!) Take advantage of benmcnelly‘s useful Makey Makey Board thing as a model to help you design your enclosures!
