We love these 3D printed game controllers, Via all3dp

Looking for some personal touch when playing video games? Why not use 3D printing to customize your video game controller? Here are two great alternatives to controller uniformity.

If you’re into gaming and are looking for something special, you’ve probably considered the option of buying a customized controller. There’s a ton of commercial offers out there – like the ones from Controller Chaos in the US or The Controller Shop in the UK.

The drawback of these custom made controllers: They will set you back around $120 to $150. 3D printing your custom controller will be a lot cheaper. You can also choose from a variety of materials.

Maker “BobsYurUncle” posted some images of his custom made Xbox One controller on Imgur. He used a “$350 Monoprice Maker Select 3D printer (fully modded) in Hatchbox Wood PLA”. This filament consists of about 70% wood fibers and 30% PLA.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
