Replacement analog stick for the Logitech WingMan Rumble Pad
by techknight, published
My friend Alex lost one of the detachable analog sticks on his Logitech WingMan Rumble Pad. This is my attempt to recreate it, and my first OpenSCAD project.
I've written about the process of putting this together over at the Ponoko blog. Check it out:
The STL files provided will print one or two analog sticks with characteristics similar to the original part.
However, the SCAD source has some options that you can change:
HOLLOW_POST (default true)
Set to false if you'll drill your own after printing.
THUMB_DEPRESSION (default true)
Set to false if you prefer the head of the stick to be flat.
ROUNDED_EDGE (default true)
Set to false if you prefer the head of the stick to not have a rounded edge.
NUMBER_OF_STICKS (default 2)
Output 1 or 2 sticks for export as STL.
I got the best results when I used ReplicatorG/Skeinforge to flip the model standing up (like a "T") with support materials underneath. It was a pain to clean, but the other way was really blobby on the post.
