Time to get back to 3D printing guys! I just reconfigured my entire Nerd Cave bedroom to setup all 6 of my consoles (XBOX 360, XBOX One, PS3, PS4, WiiU & Ouya) and I had a boatload of controllers laying around. I decided to pick up this awesome controller cradle from Thingiverse and print out 4 of them to start with and install them in my room. They work absolutely perfectly and the arms are completely replaceable which makes this one epic good design.

3D printers are the most amazing technology you can own. I have two of them now and I can literally use them to solve just about any problem in my house. I’m slowing getting into the CAD design aspect so I can make my own models from scratch but for now there is a huge amount of models on the internet that you can download, modify and print!

This holder can be mounted on drywall using anchors or directly into wood on cabinets, book shelves, etc. You could even double stick tape it or Velcro it if you don’t want to damage the surface of what you’re attaching too.

All 4 controller hangers were printed at 0.2 layer height at 100 – 150mm/sec with Black PLA at 220 degrees. Every print came out perfect and I could repeat the print very easily. This is an amazing design because it’s simple, very effective, modular and designed in a way that makes 3D printing with additive printers very easy since their are no over hangs!

Big kudos to ChickenBisket on for creating such a great model!

  1. I dare you to find a person that still plays that piece of shit Ouya! Wiiu may not be the best console, but at least it wasn't a piece of tech that goes out of date faster than the milk in most people's fridge.
