Hi, I've created the Keystick to play games from the arrow key of your keyboard. It's a piston device activated by the movement of a stick or pad. It is attached firmly to your keyboard with grips that clamps beneath adjacent keys of the arrow keys from your mechanical keyboard. It literally can lift your keyboard without budging. 1 size fits all!! All you need is to print the appropriate pistons height. If the size listed dont fit, just ask me and I'll add it to the list.
How to adjust the device: With device assembled, at a 45degree angle push the front grips under/in between the 3 keys above the arrows and place the keystick on top of the arrows and push the font grips under the keys so the device get push on the arrow keys. Use the back arms and clip them under the adjacent keys (Right Ctrl and 0), adjust the arm by looking under your keys, push hard and you'll hear a ''click''. Your done. For the pistons adjustment you should take the height that is about 1mm away from the front and rear command of the stick/pad. Print the stick/pad you want, place it on the ball and push straight down. Your now ready to play. To take the device off, just lift a bit the keys that the arms are attached and pull the arm. Then lift the device from the back to a 45degree angle and pull the front grips.
I'm using PLA on a creality ender 3.Everything has to be printed with supports touching floor only of about 70 except for: Front and back bars, KEYSTICK(device name), buttons and piston caps (you choose what's best for you, 8,3mm or 11mm.) The keypad and keystick need a raft and support of about 70.
The Keystick may stay on your keyboard like I do. So print it at high quality. There's many pieces to assemble and you may like to create your own device colors to fit the environment.
How to assemble: Always use a small amount of glue and clamp if you can. With the frame in hand, glue the buttons, front bar and back bar in place. Then glue the back of the bar of the KEYSTICK (device name) and put it in place. Clamp all. For the rotation ball chek first if it fits well with the patern printed, if not use an ex-acto or sand a bit the lower round edge. Put a normal amount of glue in the half circle on the frame and a tiny drop the lifted side, put the rotation ball in the socket and clamp it on the thinner side. For the back arms, use a bit of glue on the lower hole on the frame and in the hole for the elbow washer. The smallest grip goes to the right.. Again clamp everything. Wait for the glue to dry and it's ready to use. I may improve this product if necessary. All comments are welcomed. Have fun :)
