This is a grip for the 8Bitdo SF30/SN30 Pro controllers!
(This is a "2.0" version of my 8Bitdo SF30 / SN30 Pro Grip that I made about a year ago: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2828968 )
Basically, its purpose is to make the 8Bitdo SF30 / SN30 Pro controllers feel more like a regular Switch Pro Controler by adding hand grips. It includes the holes needed to attach the 8Bitdo phone clip, and a hole to charge the controller without removing the grips.
The grips themselves were adapted form MagneticAlpaca's Pro Controller Grips, which I can't link to anymore since they were deleted from the Thingiverse.
I'm including a .zip file with the grips and the holder separately as STEP and STL files, so if you want to make the grips larger/smaller before attaching them to the holder in your favorite CAD software, you can do that.

DISCLAIMER: I've yet to print this Thing. Make sure to check out others who've printed it themselves ("Makes" section), to see real life pictures and observations!
Changelog (compared to the 1.0 Thing)
- The usb-c port hole is now larger, so hopefully it will be compatible with more usb-c cables.
- The bottom part of the holder was changed so that the whole thing is more reminiscent of a Switch Pro Controller.
- The top part of the holder (where the 8Bitdo phone clip attaches) was changed; it might be stronger, but it's mostly an aesthetic change.
- The grips were moved south a little bit, again to make it feel more like a Pro controller.
- Rather than tweaking the old model, I basically made this version from the ground up, so there might be more changes I don't remember.
I recommend using a raft to print these grips, since depending on the orientation you use, the contact area with the bed will be very, very, very small, which makes a raft pretty much mandatory.
I also recommend that you print this Thing as shown in the example picture above (45 degree angle from the ground), so that the layers are printed in a way that the mechanical stress from placing and removing the controller does not try to separate the layers, which is a common way for prints to fail post-printing.
Furthermore, use a large shell size, like a 2mm shell size for example. Otherwise, the top part of the grip (the one with the holes for the phone attachment) will be too fragile and break easily.
