Could sliding the joy-con into the rough plastic damage it?

Can confirm. Saw people talking about this on Facebook, hopefully OP has taken a look at this!

Not all heroes wear capes

WOW COOL!!66666
Why you so smart!

Question, I printed this on my Da Vinci Jr 1.0 and had no issues with the actual printing of it, but the rails for the joycon don't seem to be compatible with my joycon. The joycon get stuck on the holder. Any suggestions?

Nvm, I figured it out!

What did you do to get them to fit just sand?

I am giving this as a gift. Can you suggest on how to sand because I don't have the controllers?

Unfortunately, it will be extremely hard to tell in my opinion without the switch joycons to test it.

What I did was I would try to put my joycon on it, take them off, sand, and basically keep testing till I had a decent amount of tension so the print didn't slide when I actually had a drink in it.

In the image provided I am pointing to the part you want to sand, but you will have to do both sides of the rail to get the best results.

This thing is great for motion controls

hey guys can we get a trademarked name on this? how bout the "switch 'n' sip"

hi there! does anyone knows where can i find one like that?? u.u or how can i do it ???

You print it. This is thingiverse.

Well done! you saved me about $60

awsome but it works but if you print it on high speed it messes it up really bad

You are my hero! I wish I thought of this first.

Tried to print one, but the sides don't appear to be connected to the cup body when slicing in simplify3d? one side has a larger gap than the other.

EDIT: the model has a problem on the switch logo on the left side where the circle part sticks out, I ran it through https://tools3d.azurewebsites.net/ and it fixed the problem... printing now!

Can we get an adjustable Version for different can- and bottlesizes? I'd love to print an augustiner-beer version of it. The bottles diameter is 70.5mm.

Would be so awesome and of course i'd send you a photo of the finished print.

That's a good idea, I should also make an energy drink size one one.

I printed this (Monospace Mini Select V2) and while I don't think I'll ever use it as a drink holder, it keeps the JoyCons at the PERFECT angle to play with it set on my desk. Brilliant!

Very nice. Terrapin Sound Czech too. I live right outside of Athens. Great beer.

nice :) I just updated the .stl which fixes a small logo artifact on the right side of the logo

That appears to be where the mesh hole was that was causing me slicing problems. in the Circle part of the switch logo that sticks out according to meshmixer ( so left side when looking at it from the front ).. But I just downloaded the file today aug 15th. Microsofts netfix thing fixed it for me though.

Love your design! Anyway you could update the tolerences a little? With a drink in hand the weight causes the joycons to fall out.
