This is a directional pad that can be assembled with 4 simple 6mm momentary switches. It takes roughly 60 grams to compress these.
Another version using low pressure switches would be beneficial.
print the 3 pieces.
Hot glue and solder your 6mm momentary switches in place.
place the D-pad in the dome and test to make sure there is no sticking/rubbing. You may have to rotate the d-pad 90 degrees, I think one side might be slightly wider.
glue it all together.
You will need to drill the dome to accomodate for your wires.
