Nice work! Did you made it on SolidWorks? Can you send the "GameClipWired" part or can you make the change to fit Samsung Galaxy S4 Please.

I have just tried PLA and it works!

Whatever cymon.

Thanks for sharing this OP

Print without support, I have designed the support only in the part that really needs and is easily removable.

The universal version you need to stick your cell phone case in it. I recommend the gray double-sided tape from 3M. It will work even with the wireless version, this tape is extremely strong.

To use the controller with your android you need this app:

Have fun!

What material do you recommend for printing? It needs to be somewhat flexible for the initial clipping into the holder?

bernabap on Jun 22, 2013 said:

Yes it needs to be flexible, I have only tried with ABS.

Awesomestuf bernabap! What software you used to create the dxf file? openscad is not recognizing it for me.

bernabap on May 3, 2013 said:

LibreCad. It is working fine for me with openscad 2013.01.
I just saved my scad file in the same folder as the dxf file and imported:

linear_extrude(height = 13.5) import("GameClip.dxf");

How did you get the PS3 controller geometry, was there a dummy you drew onto?

I'll have to use this in a future design!

I used a caliper to measure, my drawing is done in the dxf file.

I have to agree with cymon here. This idea has been around for a very long time. I even have something I bought (before I got my 3d printer) for my N900 (which was the very FIRST smart phone to pair a controller wirelessly). The design is pretty much a natural choice. The name - well thats up for debate.

bernabap on Jan 26, 2013 said:

Lol, you agree with cymon or with me?

The name I have chosen is just a response to a company trying to patent an idea from the DIY community.

I love the labeling. I would have skipped that if I had made this myself. Very good.

The idea of using something to stick you phone into your ps3 controller is not from GameKlip. I have seen this many times before the existence of them.

Just to list some:


My design is just the natural shape that someone would do it to be printable.
I bet that if I had not do it the wired version you would not say this. But it is just the wireless version extruded with some shapes cutted to reduce plastic usage.

I had never used CAD tools before and did this in some hours using LibreCad and Tinkercad.
