This adapter was developed by request of my friend Rami Wehbe , who wanted a way to play Zelda: Breath of the wild using only his left hand; as he lost the ability to control his right hand due to a cerebrovascular accident.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has a complex control scheme, and the shape of the included Joy-Con grip doesn't help at all. So, I decided to make a customized grip that would help in this situation.
This current design was the result of almost a week of research and lots of failed prototypes, as I had to ensure that it would be easy to print, lightweight and practical. After testing that it works properly, we decided to share it, so that it can be of help to other gamers in a similar situation. Please bear in mind that this design was optimized for use with the left hand. Although it's possible to use it with the right hand, some actions might be difficult to perform.
After one week of testing, Rami found an issue with the original model: Due to the size of his hand, he couldn't reach some buttons comfortably. So, I made a second version, which reduces the space between both Joy-Cons.
Now, this site features both versions of the adapter, which can be downloaded from the Thing files section.
V1: Features a 90 degree angle between both Joy-Cons. It's recommended for gamers with bigger hands and longer fingers (such as myself!)
V2: Features a 45 degree angle between both Joy-Cons. It also reduces the spacing between them, making them easier to hold. Recommended for gamers with smaller hands and children.

I have tested this model in PLA, and it works perfectly. Print time takes approximately 1 hour and a half.
