This is a replacement slew hat and holder designed for a PS4/xbox style alps mini joystick (I bought generic ones off of amazon) for use with Deltaalphalima1's slew replacement board (https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=200198). This allows users to swap the stock slew nub with a regular xbox style thumbstick (soldering skills required) and doesn't require any destructive modification of the throttle handle.
I printed mine with Sunlu yellow gold PLA+ at 205/70C 0.2mm layer height with a 0.4mm nozzle. I used glue stick for bed adhesion.
It should be noted that all parts were designed based on the tolerances and shrinkages on my machine (CR-10S with fang, and dampers)
All parts were printed with 1mm supports with interface layers (0.4mm gap) and should all print as oriented in the .stl files. The Slew hat itself was printed at half speed. The "elbow" replaces the stock standoff in the throttle handle while pressing the ministick forward into position.
- Installation requires removal of the stock slew controller (see youtube for instructions).
- All soldering and connections should be done before assembly (I recommend reversing the polarity of Vin and GND on the Y axis).
- Insert the thumbstick into the holder part.
- Insert the holder and thumbstick assembly into the hole left by the slew controller, making sure that the locating peg lines up with the slot.
- Insert the elbow behind the thumbstick making sure to avoid trapping any wiring. The flat surface on the loop side of the elbow should be in contact with the thumbstick avoiding any pegs.
- While holding the elbow in place, mate the offside panel (the one with all the switches) to the throttle handle making sure that the elbow column slides over the spigot on the panel.
- Insert remaining stock standoffs and place excess wiring into the remaining cavity.
- Continue reassembling throttle as normal.
- Press the slew hat onto the thumbstick shaft.
- Once fully assembled, recalibrate the throttle according to the Deltaalphalima1's instructions in the above forum thread.
The hat and holder are designed to allow the stick to deflect 20 degrees off centre in any direction (40 degrees total throw) while preventing the stick from exceeding the range of its potentiometers. The hat is designed to allow full deflection without interfering with the coolie hat.
All parts were designed in fusion 360.
