Cool 3D Printables for Gamers

Posted by Trizzy Orozco on

3D printing technology and gaming go well together. Like coffee and cream, avo and toast, and nozzle and bed. Since 3D printing allows cheap reproduction of gaming accessories and components, the gaming community benefits greatly from the technology. If you’re a hardcore gamer, here are 3D printables that can enhance your gaming experience.

Game controllers

When it comes to game controllers, it’s different strokes for different folks sometimes. After all, we have different touch, mobility, and hand structures, so some people find it better to customise their controllers according to their own preferences. Here are some 3D printed game controllers that you might want to try:

1. XBOX ONE STEERING WHEEL FOR WIRED CONTROLLERS by Gonzalor

Typical controllers aren’t made for racing games and that’s a fact, which is why Gonzalor has created this enhancement for Xbox One controllers. It is a steering wheel mechanism that manages to hit all the right buttons to make sure you drive in your game with ease.

2. DIY CONTROLLER (for Arduino/Raspberry projects) by ferjerez3D

Raspberry and Arduino projects are a dream come true for the experienced creators. Hence, this DIY controller is another creation that they can take delight in. If they manage to create their own gaming console using Raspberry or Arduino, then creating their own controllers is like the cherry on top of their technical cake.

3. BIG THUMBS XBOX JOYSTICKS by ShookIdeas

Some thumbs are just too stubby for the regular game controller. This maker designed a controller to accommodate fat thumbs to prevent getting them on buttons they’re not supposed to be on.

4. Nintendo Switch Joy-Con attachments

The best thing about the Nintendo Switch Joy Con is that you can easily create enhancements for them due to their small size and segmented parts. Here are just some 3D printable accessories you can create to accentuate them:

JOYCON & KNUCKLES by Tokytome

ARROW JOYCON CONTROLLER GRIP FOR NINTENDO SWITCH by Edrice

Gaming storage

Another cool thing to create with a 3D printer is storage for your game consoles, cartridges, and CDs. Why buy from the store when you can create your own cooler version, right?

1. SUPER MARIO WORLD NINTENDO SWITCH CONTROLLER PRO JOY CON WALL HOLDER by NevaMasquarade

If you’ve got a couple of controllers lying around, print out this cool decoration/storage piece by NevaMasquarade. Not only does it keep your controllers in order, but you also get a cool wall art.

2. 12 IN 1 STORAGE CUBE FOR NINTENDO SWITCH GAME CARTRIDGES AND MICROSD CARDS by Lablab

Nintendo Switch cartridges and micro SD cards are so small that you have to be careful with storing them. This 3D printed storage cube introduces a fun way of storing them securely. It can fit up to 12 cartridges or 24 micro SD cards.

3. SUSPENDED PS4 STAND by Cozi_Officiel

If you don’t have a lot of space for your console or you just want to store them discreetly, you can do so with this PS4 stand! It is easy to print and use too as it only has two components that you can attach to the underside of your shelf or console table.
