My friend Alex lost one of the detachable analog sticks on his Logitech WingMan Rumble Pad. This is my attempt to recreate it, and my first OpenSCAD project.

I've written about the process of putting this together over at the Ponoko blog. Check it out:


The STL files provided will print one or two analog sticks with characteristics similar to the original part.

However, the SCAD source has some options that you can change:

HOLLOW_POST (default true)
Set to false if you'll drill your own after printing.

THUMB_DEPRESSION (default true)
Set to false if you prefer the head of the stick to be flat.

ROUNDED_EDGE (default true)
Set to false if you prefer the head of the stick to not have a rounded edge.

NUMBER_OF_STICKS (default 2)
Output 1 or 2 sticks for export as STL.

I got the best results when I used ReplicatorG/Skeinforge to flip the model standing up (like a "T") with support materials underneath. It was a pain to clean, but the other way was really blobby on the post.

This is great! Do you think you could do the same for the slider? Surprisingly my analogs never dislodged but my slider has and I haven't been able to replace it since.

Sorry, I made these three years ago based on a gamepad that my friend owned at the time.
If you haven't done any 3D modelling yet, you should download OpenSCAD and give it a try! It's very satisfying to 3D print something useful. They key is making the measurements and breaking down complex shapes into simpler ones.

How the heck...

See, I've got one of these exactly. And when i learned about 3D printing I reaized I could get a real fix to this problem, so I modeled them myself (except I flipped them upside down so that they'd print without support but have a flat top). But not having a 3D printer I kinda forgot about it, put
them away, and proceeded to get into 3D printing, making more complex models for a printer I still don't have and uploading them to this very site.

Then on an image search to find an image of my Wingman Rumblepad for XPadder today I run into these images taking me to a corner of this site I frequ
ent! The heck, man. Why didn't I search before modeling.

(Tho, I still think flipping them upside down so they can print without support may work better.

As long as your printer has a stepper-based extruder, you should be able to print them upsidedown sans support using the "cool" plugin in skeinforge. But on my MK4 Cupcake they turned out like this: :)

Do you think you would be able to design a psp joystick?

Possibly. I'd need physical access to measure one though.. Can they be removed from a PSP-1000 and clipped back on without breaking them?
