This grip makes holding a single Joy-Con very comfortable. Works with both the left and right Joy-Con. The controllers easily snap in and out of the grip. To install, insert the + or - side first, then press in the other side.

Should be an easy print. No Supports or raft needed.

This design is spot on. Very nice work!
I gave mine a 50% infill to add a little weight. Snaps right in, not too snug but doesn't wiggle at all.

printed one, works great! fits snug and feels solid!

what software did you use to create this? thanks!

Cannot press the L/R buttons when using this grip.

use the little wrist band attachment

DO you print it flat to the bed like in the second picture?

Yes, flat like the 2nd picture.

Can you make a hole for the Loop? That would be nice

Will this design work if the Joycons have those gel grips on them?

No it won't work with the gel grips.

would be nice if the "border" left and right would be asymetrical to cancel out the stick/button offset. I hope this sentence makes sense =D

nice model nonetheless thanks

Nice and snug! Thank you this will lessen the cramping while playing co-op games!

Looks great and works great!

My print just finished, the joycon is a little lose in the grip but it still works great.

Same here. Not sure if it's because we printed in a different material than these other folks. I printed in Black PLA. Gonna have to scale it down.

Edit: I did end up taking a heat gun to the grip and it's a nice snug fit now! If anyone is finding this to be the case, give that a try!

Thanks for making this. Great work.
