I started this thing back in 2017 iirc, got as far as getting most of the parts but I stopped at the point where my 3D Printer was acting funky. Leveling was such a pain with it and it kept changing, I gave up and put away the printer.
Now I kinda have the motivation to finally do this, I'm going to get a new 3D Printer with auto leveling I hope (I'm planning on getting a DAP as well which is really expensive, so not certain if it's anytime soon but it'll happen at some point).
I guess I'll edit this blog post to show progress made. This is what I've done so far, and I just now finished most of the design with CAD.
This is what I have currently:
The Xbox One controller's triggers don't work and apparently no one knows how to fix them as they use some weird magnet system (I asked here as well), so I'll be using it to harvest the buttons/dpad/analog stick rubbers, and possibly the triggers (I might use a Wii U Pro Controller triggers/start/select I have lying around).
Currently waiting for some soft tactile button switches to arrive in the mail, and with that and a 3D Printer, I'll finally start assembling it.
The CAD designing with this website called Tinkercad is super easy to use, but I'm having so much trouble getting perfect rounded corners on the design sadly, hopefully will be fixed soon.
The tiny little board you see there is called a Teensy LC, it acts as a USB gamepad if you solder buttons to it, and it works as I've tried it, and you can see the yellow plastic has burnt a little due to the solder lol.
Well that's all for now.
