I've made some improvements for all parts. The lever is stronger right now, and uses less filament (make sure to print it flat). The case and cover are easier to connect and dont require any glue. When you decide to print v2, make sure to print the v2 extension piece, because this one is different than the first one. Only the second version is compatible with the second version lever. The handle stays the same and is compatible with both versions.
Hope you enjoy!
I designed this handbrake because I wanted a simple and easy to print version, that wouldn't take up much space so came up with this model.
It only uses a simple micro lever switch and a spring(20mm in length and at least 9mm diameter). The setup can be seen in one of the pictures. The switch's cable can be put trough the hole in the cover.
There's also an extension piece available to increase the distance the handle travels. I personally like this and suggest that you also try it.
The switch can me mapped to any function in game with use of an Arduino or a game controller.
You can mount the handbrake to your desk using a clamp, like I did, or to print a mounting piece.
The cover piece can be mounted to the case with use of some (super) glue (like I did) or to use some 2mm bolts.
If you enjoy this print please let me know! Also feel free to upload some makes and show me what color combinations you could come up with!!

Use supports with the handle and the extension piece. For the lever piece use at least 4 perimiters/ outer walls and 50% infill. For the handle itself I used 2 perimiters and 50% infill. For the case you can use 2 perimiters for the 'walls' and 4/5 perimiters for the axle. I suggest that you rotate the case so that the axle is vertical. You may need to sand down the axle a bit to your liking.
