UPDATE 12/2/2020 : Starting today you may notice some changes to this model. They are minor changes to improve print quality. You can view the changes in the the new Nebula and Empire Strikes Black images posted today.
Also as of today I'm adding the new NEBULA color, this is a new intergalactic color that varies with every print due to random color changes in the filament, super cool stuff and I've shipped it to a few folks already who chose the random option and I can't wait to share this with more folks as it's growing to be one of my favorite filaments.
Hello! Inspired by Nintendo's Switch and it's joy-con controller I designed this holder for the joy-cons and grips that is compact, portable, and for me more comfortable than the controller that comes with the Switch.
First off before you buy, I want to let you know that I am offering the design for free for non-commercial usage on my Thingiverse page, so if you have a 3d printer or have a friend with a 3d printer you can print this yourself (it just takes a bit of tweaking on the print sittings to get it just right). You can find this model and more here: http://www.thingiverse.com/artobot/designs ( *cough* I also accept tips *cough* )
Anyhow, I got enough requests (and have seen my design sold with out my consent) enough to open up this shop to give people an option to help support future designs as well as potentially get some cool stuff. So technically you're not buying the the joy-con U you're supporting me as the creator, so yes if you order a Joy-Con U you'll get a Joy-Con U, but ( no guarantees ) sometimes I may throw in extra bonus stuff because of your support ( Oh and if you ask for extra stuff you probably won't get it as I like to surprise people, not hand out freebies).
I currently offer a decent amount of colors, but am open to requests. SOOO if you want it customized a bit? Say you want a different logo than the Switch or maybe your name somewhere let me know, we can probably work something out ( but contact me before you order, as it will cost a little more $ ). :)
P.S. Those asking why the carbon fiber option costs more, and the simple answer is it eats my 3d printer, it's like running sand paper through the nozzle and it requires either a hardened nozzle ( which costs a little more cash ) or replacing parts over time. Info can be found here: https://makezine.com/2015/09/11/carbon-fiber-filament-ruins-nozzles/
Everything I make is 3d printed and thus will have the typical 3d printed "texture", I don't smooth the print so it will have the printed lines ( which I hope you can see a bit in the photos ). Because it is 3d printed there may be slight imperfections and differences between prints, but I will test every controller that is shipped with my personal Switch to insure that the fit meets my standard ( IE it's easy to insert and remove and doesn't slip while in play ). Please know though that I can not take responsibility to any damage to your Nintendo Switch and I recommend not trying to jam or being overly aggressive with your joy-cons and by using the Joy-Con U you are using it at your own risk.
This controller is fan made for the Nintendo Switch and is not an official Nintendo product. This item does not include the pictured Joy-Cons or the grips, it is strictly the 3d printed holder.
There was a problem calculating your shipping. Please try again.

Love it!! I wanted a portable grip that fits in my skull and co max carry case and this one holds my straps in place too!! I have a bionic power plate as a second grip and now im ready for two player smash bros with full controller in my break room at work!! I sent this along to my friends and they all love this too!!
I love the color and it feels really nice in my hands. The shipping was fast, and I even got an extra Joycon-U and a cute little pin to put on my lanyard. Would definitely buy from this shop again in the future.
Awesome design. With the red grips I bought, the joy cons wouldn't fit in the control pad that came with the console. They're a little hard to slide into the Joy-Con U, but after several uses, slides in just just fine. Selecting Random as my color option worked out well too, since the blue pairs excellently with the red grips! Would definitely support this guy's designs again in the future.
So nice to finally have a grip that works with the protective shells. This is an amazing product, and the colors look better than I expected. I plan to see what else they have to offer!!!
