Summary

I love the original Switch controller " Dock" it feels right and works well, but I am not able to use my silicon sleeves on my joycons while they are mounted on the original grip.

I dont want to take of the sleeves every time I attach them to the original grip

So I had a look around on Thingiverse and there are a bunch of great alternatives.
I fell in love with Con U v2 from artobot, he got some awesome designs.

After printing it I was able to mount my joycons on his Con U V2 but even with the silicone sleeves it was to flat and not comfortable to hold for me.

So I remixed his design with another great Design from EbonNebula which had a great grip design and added my own features to it.
I am pretty proud about the outcome, this in my opinion is the most comfortable 3D printed joycon grip so far ;) Also now Iam able to leave the silicone sleeves on the joycons.

The Grip on the Back is detachable and hold in position by a circular Lock.

There are two elevated pods on the detachable grip, you can add two chair felt pads to support the joycons against the applied pressure from your Thumbs.

Fix the " lockdisk" with a common screw, washer and an o ring to apply constant and stable pressure on the locking mechanism.

IMPORTANT:

After Printing you have to cut or file down the sides of the grip mount to make it fit the base of the Comfycon, I made it a bit wider on purpose because not every printer prints the same,but this part has to be a tight fit for a good experience. Use a file and retry more often until you reach the perfect fit.

Can you make a version with an "exact" fit to give those of us using ABS (acetone bonding) or another plastic and something like gorilla glue to attach? I've made a few of these and love them, but the filing (or, in my case, zip disc time) is annoying.

I guess I could always just scale down the grips to 98% or something, too. I also dislike the quick attach so I just glue it together, but I thank you for the excellent remix/design work.

Where did the " Bullshit" comment go?! XD Well first of all I would like to know how you slide the joycons off the Comfycon with the silicon sleeves attached?! In my case my third party sleeves feature a big bulge on each bottom side, so sliding them off without detaching the attached grip by opening my " bullshit washer" is not possible. I first thought that the genuine original nintendo branded sleeves do not have that bulge but when I looked them up online I saw that they also feature that exactly same bulge on the back.

When you glue the grip to the base how do you detach the joycons? forcing the bulge from the sleeves through the gap would most likely break the grip, or are you pulling off the sleeves off the joycons from the side before sliding them off?!

I suppose you also did not added that felt pad stickers to the pods of the grip, so every time you press the buttons on the joycons a bit harder you bend the joycons back a a few millimeter the whole time experiencing a sloppy non solid feedback.

I took a lot of time and testing into this remix to make it work and feel as good as possible.

I am really interested because that " Bullshit" comment did hurt quite a lot.

I didn't delete it, must have been flagged. From context I didn't mean it in a hurtful way, it was a language thing. And I do use the felt pads.

I'm sorry I'm not using it to your standards. I'll delete my make and leave you alone.

Well youre reaction I cant follow, also I feel sad that you did not explain to me how you manage to get the joycons on and off, but of course if you feel better with deleting your make and " leave you alone" I can live with that. no bad feelings its Kuhscheißdreck anyway. No worries its only a language thing ;)

I just printed one of these. I originally just wanted the main body, because the original one won't slice for my Zortrax for some reason. However, I'm liking the ergo grip. I just need to heat gun it and get the felt pads. But why did you make the interlock but so wife and require so much sanding?

Like I already said in the description, the Grip Lock on the main Body needs to be a tight fit otherwise there is some wobble and thats unbearable. Some friends printed it before I added some extra material to the sides and the ergo grip was a bit loose in the main body because not every printer, prints the exact perfect measurement. So a little sanding ( takes only a few minutes) is necessary. If you think it is to much work I cant help you, sorry. Printing always involves some adjusting and sanding, and to be honest you are the first one complaining about. In my opinion its better to have a little more material you need to sand down instead of having less, because you obviously cant add material after printing.
You know I cant meet everyone's expectations spot on so I have to move along the middle path.
Anyway your welcome.

What software did you slice this in? When I try Slic3r it does some weirdness to the top part of the grip. Everything else prints fine but the grip.

I am slicing with cura, works perfectly fine for me, give it a try.
