mintyPi Function Tactile Button Shim

Hello All,

Here's a very simple tactile button shim for you to use. You'll still need to apply a small layer of glue to stabilize the button and attach the shim to the button using a piece of VHB tape. The button shim is just thick enough so you can use the battery as a brace so your presses wont dislodge the button too much.

Open the stl with any CAD file and use the ruler tool to measure the height of the shim !
