UPDATE 22/04/16 added more build photos,also de-soldered unused connectors off the encoder PCB.
Assembly designs are being tweaked to reflect the changes in the photos,cable access and tolerances are being improved for V2.0.
UPDATE 21/04/16 electronics have arrived (YAY) All wired up and works like a charm,
Using Joytokey to convert USB controller commands to keyboard shortcuts.
Software is very easy to use and works flawlessly.(with windows 32/64 bit) may work with other operating systems but have not checked.
Simply get your favorite CAD programs list of keyboard shortcuts and edit the inputs accordingly.
Very happy and all for 20 GBP awesome.

UPDATE 21/04/16 added spacemouse RH holder and some build photos,
Parts were printed @0.2mm layer height on my DA Vinci 1.0 with original firmware (mk8 extruder).
Upon use the device is very comfortable and button placement pretty much spot-on.
Still waiting for electronics to arrive ,(
This is an holder for the 3dconnexion spacemouse.
I recently acquired a spacemouse and am very impressed with it thus far.
However i still find myself having the use the keyboard commands due to the lack of buttons on the spacemouse.
This is where (domino) comes into play,the 6 arcade buttons can be programmed to replace the keyboard (i am still waiting for parts to arrive for testing).
I shall provide more information and a full parts list once everything as been wired up and tested.
The parts are very inexpensive,you can build and print the whole add-on for less than 20GBP.
All of the electronics are contained in the wrist rest support.
This is a left handed design,four fingers are used and your thumb presses the other two buttons.
I have made this design 3d printing friendly,so you can print without supports
The files are subject to change,but i thought i would get my idea out there while im waiting for the electrical bits and pieces to arrive.
With regards to printing,i always use abs and scale the size to 102% to account for shrinkage.
Lastly if you do copy any of my my designs,please be respectful and give acknowledgement to the original creator.
