Steam Controller CAD Geometry Designs Released to Let Users Customize & Share New Designs
Valve has released the mechanical CAD geometry from its Steam Controller which essentially covers all the external parts allowing users to edit, customize, and share their designs with the rest of the world.
However, the Steam Controller mechanical CAD geometry is under a Creative Common License which basically restricts users from selling their designs with discussing with Valve first.
The announcement comes via a Steam Community Post in which Valve has provided different files for Cero Express, native modeling, neutral exchange, and 3D print:
The archive contains several drawings viewer files: from Cero Express and native Modeling, to neutral exchange and 3D print files – for compatibility with a wide variety of your design tools.
In addition to this, Valve has also provided a couple of variants of the Battery Door to enable users to carry their USB wireless receivers with them:
To kick off the sharing of alternate designs, we are releasing a couple variants of the Battery Door that allow you to carry your USB wireless receiver with you. You may need to revise the geometry for your particular printer.
Of course, there are a lot of options at users’ disposal to download main 3D geometry zip files from the DropBox link and get started.
