I originally designed this because I wanted to use the longer arcade buttons (i.e. https://www.banggood.com/5V-Arcade-Push-Button-Durable-Long-Switch-Multicolor-p-957099.html ) which are not compatible with the design by elkayem.

It is designed in a way that you are able to flip the top part, so you can decide whether you want the joystick left or right.

The USB controller I used is called ‘zero delay arcade usb encoder’.

I printed one with white PLA and one with wood, both using the same resolution and infill.
One thing to note is that I had to sand down the wood one before I was able to put the bottom and top part together whereas the white PLA one instantly worked

The joystick is hold in place by 4x M4 nuts & screws.

Printed on an Anycubic I3 Mega, I had to adjust the printer settings to be able to slice it with cura (X: 215, Y: 215, Z: 205)

Although there are holes present to screw the top and the bottom part together I did not do this, because mine are already very tightly connected and will not come loose

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!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!

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.
