I’ve started modelling them too. With these pieces built in so to speak. I’ll share if I get the shells good enough. If you manage it beforehand I’d love to give them a try.
I most likely won't be able to do that before you but if you're going to do so that will be amazing. It will save all the measurmants with a 3d model of the rails. I'll still need to figure out how to make the centerpiece in a way where the rails won't fall out of it.

Also don't forget to add a hole for the second Z button in blender.

I was actually thinking of taking shells and 3d scanning them somehow so in Blender I can make printable models that are already cut in half. I mean one day there won't be any shells remaining in this world so this will be a workaround

Get to it then lads.

Thank you man that will help even more

--------MERGE POST--------

Hmmmm only problem I seem to have is to actually get Gamecube controller actuators. I can't find original spare ones online. Can it also be 3d scanned in theory?

--------YET ANOTHER MERGE--------

Ok so here what I might do. I'll get a power A wireless controller for the switch, might as well take the buttons from it, I'll take the actuators from it too, attempt to 3d scan them and add the short plug to fix the clickiness of the shoulder pads, maybe even see if there's a difference between the wii u stick box and the power A stick box maybe I can use the Power A one instead if it doesn't ruin the traditional feeling. If that won't work I'll get an Exlene Gamceube controller and test that one out too.

I assume you're talking about the trigger mounts? I'm not sure how you're going to scan them but they are a fairly simple part to model from scratch. I don't think 3D scanning them is going to help in any way.

I would model it from scratch but I don't know how the actuators even look like in real life up close. In the video he had to even cut one to make it fit and then add a 3d printed part to it. Yes it will save tons of work to actually model a merged version of the original actuator and the 3d printed part that he made but I will need to know how the thing looks like from all sides.

currently trying to add a hole for a second Z button, if anyone happens to know where I can get a 3d model of a z button it will help me spare a lot of time modeling the shape of one that perfectly matches the hole.

Ok update on that one I managed to do make the shape of the hole for the z button and I can use it to carve a whole on the left side of the controller but before I do that I want to check with you guys if I did that correctly by this image, if the shell is connected correctly and if I should still use a model of an actual z button to carve that hole?

Hello again, sorry for being gone, I had to take my pc to repairs and the technician at the lab cause further damage to the computer rather than fixing it rendering it unusable for any work, so I got a new pc and managed to salvage most of my work from the old one as the old one was pretty much beyond repair. I'll redo the shells project as soon as possible and in top speed.

Happy new year guys
