Something different but still modeling (kinda)

Treated myself to a 3D printer a while ago, was going to make an extension for my X55, then it occurred to me I could be a little more adventurous!

 

So I made this:

WTF I hear you ask!

 

It is an adaptor to couple the X55 joystick handle to a MSFFB2, non destructive to both sticks, and when I have done some soldering fully working with all buttons and hats.

 

Next up is a clip on adapter to turn the X55 base into a trim control for all 3 axis and a button bay for the displaced MSFFB2 buttons.

 

Ultimately I am looking to also create a throttle/pitch mod for the X55 base too, to add a little more immersion to helicopter flying

 

Have enjoyed being an engineer again, and using 3D CAD to produce the design!

Very cool Roger!

Which printer did you get? My buddy started a company called Maker Mark in Cleveland.

I've heard of Maker Mark! I got a Monoprice Maker Select, an iPrusa clone. It holds 0.1 mm fine and is a good starter printer.

That is properly cool Rog - Could be a nice little earner there if you were so inclined.
