I haven't used the 3DS Joystick .. so just wanted to know if this cap larger than the PSP1000 Cap?
That PSP1000 Cap kinda sucks.
Yes, the 3ds cap is larger and has better contour. Print one of these out, it's a game changer.
I'm considering spraying mine with some plasti-dip to achieve the same soft feel as a 3ds. That being said the 3ds joystick is much smoother than the PSP. They are just harder to fit in the case due to their larger size.

Another reason I asked is because I drilled my hole to big and its bugging the heck out of me :?

One is printed in transparent filament, the other is a UV Green. I'll post better pictures once I finish the project! :mrgreen:

hey folks. I've got a project file that you can upload right into cura, settings and all.

additionally I edited the .STL file so that the cap sits lower on the stick and is almost flush with the game boy shell. Less bending on the joystick and it looks better. Here it is:

file name is 0.4mm... typo... the layer height is actually 0.04mm
0.4mm 3DS Joystick Cap.rar

Perhaps you included the wrong file in the rar file but other than the file format, I don't see any difference from the original STL.

are you opening the file in Cura? looks different to me - layer view ---- layers 60-66 are different. The shaft goes into the cap body instead of resting on top of it.

Here is the .STL of the same design
3DS - Ant Modified.stl

No, I don't use Cura but I see the difference now. As you said, the cavity is slightly deeper. I assumed a lower profile design by the description in the initial post, my bad. One thing I did notice is that the bottom of the part, opposite of the top where the thumb rest, seems to be at a slight angle. Would be better to make that flat. Might have been an issue when editing the original.

Huh didn't notice the angle - I'll go back and take a look
