LEGO Technic compatible modular base for 12mm push buttons. Can be used to with a Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Makey Makey, etc.

3, 4, and 6-button pieces are included, but can combined together. I included two 4-button varieties. The tight fit version works better as a D-pad if you are using as a simple controller.

I printed without supports. This produces a few rough patches in out-of-the-way areas, so if that matters to you, they can be added.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
