Description

This is a digital pedal that I designed to be used with MAME driving games through an arcade encoder board, but as it uses just a micro switch you could wire it into anything.

It comes as two printable parts: the base and the cover.

The base houses the micro switch (arcade joystick type) and spring, which can be a variety of sizes (if you print out the spring size adaptors) or alternatively, no spring, but it does help with the feel and provides some push back.

The covers (which clip on) are a basic "smooth" one that works but can rub a bit and the improved "smooth plus" which is a bit larger and is printed with two small slides that fit into internal channels helping the movement.

_4415H version means 4 top layers, 4 bottom layers, 15% infill, H for Hex infill.
_447L version means 4 top layers, 4 bottom layers, 7% infill, L for Line infill.

I have designed more covers which can be unlocked by supporting me on Patreon:

No

Filament brand:
