This my first mod for the Nintendo Switch especially for the left Joycon controller. Currently has 8 different designs.
All of them have a little half-sphere pivot on the bottom to allow the mod to act almost like an actual dpad.
Now, two smaller versions are added.
Since the face buttons are a bit asymmetrical, each of the dpad has a little nub on the side of the "UP" button as a guide to install properly.
The lack of dpad is quite frustrating for most people. I understand that Nintendo choose that decision for the sake of local multiplayer but they should consider an alternative such as selling a left joycon with dpad or a way to swap the face buttons with dpad.
Thanks to Nintendo Switch model currently available, making this mod is easy as pie.
Your support will be appreciated.
Also, if you don't have 3D printer, go to http://3dhubs.refr.cc/8BSLKTK for quick and easy 3D printing service. Thanks.
Ninjaflex TPU is highly recommended to avoid wears on the joycon.
Apply a small double sided tapes or adhesive putty onto the 4 octagonal holes and apply onto the face buttons.
