The body of the game controller is printed in standard Polymaker ABS. The buttons are printed in conductive Proto-Pasta PLA. Additionally, I printed both files at 120%. You may want to play around with the scale to get a controller that best fits your hands.

The buttons simply screw into the top of the controller. Clip your Makey's alligator clips onto the back of each button.

1.) You'll need to get conductive filament for this to work right. This is what I used:


2.) Consider how you're going to ground the Makey. Sometimes I wedge it under my wedding ring. You can take a chunk of Play Doh, attach it to your wrist with a rubber band, then stick the ground clip in it. You can also buy these conductive wrist straps:


3.) You may not need all the buttons. Unscrew any of the buttons you don't need. It'll make the game easier to play.

4.) Have fun, and tinker away. The design isn't perfect...yet.
