Join me today on this lovely journey on How I mad my very own arcade joystick USB controller :D!!!
Takes a lot of through planning to make something like this but as long as you have a will there is a way! NEVER GIVE UP!
Never give up on your dreams!! 😀
I used a program called inkscape to create vector lines of my controller box. I then sent those files to a company called ponoko who cut them out for me with there laser cutter :D. I got .25 inch MDF board with a black melamine cover for this build. I then proceeded to clamp my pieces together with my bessey strap clamp. I glued everything together with gorilla wood glue. I then cut wood pieces to fit and glue into each corner and then drilled and screwed the box together for added stregnth and rigidity. Whenever I glued something I waited a day for the glue to cure and dry. Once the box was together I began on installing the buttons and electronics. its simple really. You just have to use the nut provided with the buttons and screw on the buttons and then connect the switchs to the ends of the buttons. Then you run the wires form the switches to the USB encoder. Plug all the USB plugs into the USB hub and screw on the top and tada! its finished!
Such a fun project to build. I love seeing thing come to be from nothing more than thoughts in my head.
I hope you enjoyed this video and I hope it was of help to you 😀
