Tired of waiting Steam deck? Why not 3D print one? It may not be as practical as the real thing, but hiding yourself in the corner of a poorly lit coffee shop, everyone will think that your uncle works in Valve.Or maybe you are Handheld device on YouTube, Who is showing us how it is done.
The YouTuber admits that his prints are a bit rough, but all the parts are in the right place, and it explains very well how The real thing Will feel in your hands. He resolved the common complaints about Deck’s thumbstick position. Both sticks are on the top of the housing and concluded that they are “very good”, which will reduce the burden on many people from an ergonomic point of view. .
The only problem he identified was the location of the B button, which is located east on the face button diamond, and the touchpad directly below the joystick. The B button is far away from the analog stick. If you use B and the right bumper at the same time, some finger collisions may occur because they are relatively close. He asserted that the touchpad will become uncomfortable after playing games for a long time.
He was also able to use his model to compare the size and thickness of the Steam Deck with its main competitors, including Nintendo Switch, OneXPlayer, and, uh, Atari Lynx. In general, he is positive about the size and feel of the device. “Big, thick, and actually very comfortable,” was his conclusion.
It’s not clear where the 3D printed Steam Deck came from, although the disclaimer in the Handheld Obsession video stated that it was created by “people who have nothing to do with Valve”-so we can’t be sure it’s millimeters.If you want to try to print it yourself, the file is Available on Thingiverse Via Scottish creator Wallmasterr.It won’t be long until someone edits the print model to fit raspberry pie And screen.
