Hey, you can easily use Meshmixer to cut models from an .stl. A quick search online should give you plenty tutorials.

I've already bought this, but I was wondering if you could split it half so that I could print it on my printer? Or if this was made in Fusion 360, could you send me the f3d file?

Printed in abs at 100% scale. Shrinkage caused it not to fit near as snug, but I had some extra cushion foam lying around, works great.

Well, stranger, you have my dime, and my thanks. I'm looking forward to making this one because my relatively large hands start to cramp when I play for an extended period of time.

Nicely done, I found it very comfortable. Note that it needs an approx 200x100mm print area, so I had to break the model up.

I understand.

I'll see if the one I have can be salvaged. If not, I'll have to see if I can find someone reliable or just give up.

I'm really sorry, but I don't do paid prints, mainly because of time constraints.

Just another thought.

I know I have paid and have the files already, but could you possibly print it out for me? I don't know if I can trust anyone else to do so. You don't have to assemble it, but it would be appreciated since you already have a New 3DS to test the fit. I wanted it printed in white ABS so I can colour it myself. Please let me know if you have the time, filament and how much...

Sorry to hear that, hope you can get a refund or a new print off them. You can also try to pad the inside if the gap isn't big. I put some felt tape on the inside of mine to make it a bit more snug and prevent the plastics from rubbing against each other.

Hi again.

I had it printed, but the idiot decided to assemble, prime and paint it without my consent with a less than acceptable paint (it wasn't even sanded properly, if at all!). I had to remove the primer and paint with acetone (which was all I had at the time that even made a dent in the paint) and it's smoother, but now the 3DS doesn't stay securely. You think that if after I have properly painted it myself and added a silicone rubber coating, it would hold the New 3DS better? Or do I have to go and find someone else to and pay to get it printed AGAIN?!

Hi, it's still holding up well. I've printed them using PLA and that seems to be fine. I have only lightly sanded them, but you can get it even more smooth by sanding, priming, and painting. Good luck!

Hi there.

How well is this holding up? Does it really hold the console securely? I have a New 3DS and have been looking for a grip that will make it more comfortable to hold as well as make pressing the L and R triggers easier. I'm currently looking for somewhere to print this for me, but what material would you recommend? Hope to hear from you soon.

I don't speak French, but this is not for the XL model, just the regular New 3DS.

Ne correspond au model XL ?
