Hing3DBox with a D-Pad

    The client is a D-Pad player. He expressed a preference for a D-Pad over leverless directional buttons. The left side has undergone slight modifications to better suit left-handed use, with smoothed edges for enhanced comfort. The design incorporates a PS5 plastic D-Pad and micro switches.

    The initiation of this project sparked the development of the PadBox, which has undergone enhancements across all aspects. It now features more precise inputs using Omron switches, improved grip, and enhanced aesthetics.

      1. Hello! For this design we have used a ps5 d-pad. The buttons are some standard limit switches. We improved significantly the design for the padbox with the omron microswitches but we kept the same d-pad.
