Camera Mount Adapter for Logitech Adaptive Gaming – Variable Trigger Button

Overview

This is a device for mounting a single Variable Trigger Button from the Logitech Adaptive Gaming Kit. To mount all the switches in the kit, or another single switch from this kit, visit this page.

The Camera Mount Adapter for Logitech Adaptive Gaming – Variable Trigger Button is an inexpensive, easy, and quick to build adapter for the variable trigger button in the Logitech Adaptive Gaming Kit. These adapters allow the buttons to be mounted on standard camera mounting equipment using the standard camera mount threads (¼”-20 UNC). This adapter was originally designed by ATMakers and more information on their switch mounts is available here.

Camera Mounting Options:

Some possible mounting options using these camera mount adapters are tripods, flexible “gooseneck” mounts or a magic arm as shown below:

Cup Holder Resizing Ring

Overview

The Cup Holder Resizing Ring is intended to reduce the diameter of an existing cup holder to better fit cups or mugs and prevent them from tipping over and falling out. The design is made in OpenSCAD and is fully parametric so that with 4 to 5 measurements, users can receive a custom sized ring perfect for their specific needs. The Resizing Ring is as simple to use as dropping into the cup holder and then placing your drink inside.

Build Instructions

Take the desired dimensions and input them into the OpenSCAD file to generate the STL. Then print the file and the Resizing Ring is ready to use.

SKILLS REQUIRED

  • 3D Printing

Universal Travel Coffee Gimbal

Overview 

A gimbaled to-go coffee cup holder. Designed to clamp a bar 20-30mm in diameter, as well as flatter things, like dashboards, etc. The diameter should fit a large double walled cup or similar, but there’s an adapter to fit other things if required. This cup holder comes with two orientations, a vertical clamp and a horizontal clamp. To find existing remixes, visit https://www.printables.com/model/129329-universal-travel-coffee-gimbal. 

Usage 

The Universal Travel Coffee Gimbal can be mounted to shafts or flat-edged overhangs by tightening the 3D printed nut and bolt going through the clamp portion. The clamp has a flat edge adapter to help it better grip onto flat-edged overhangs.  

The cup holding portion fits most typical Medium to Large sized coffee cups from coffee shops, while the Small Cup Adapter will likely be required for most Small sized cups and some smaller diameter Medium cups. 

Cost 

The device cost is approximately $3.41 worth of 3D printed parts. 

Build Instructions 

SKILLS REQUIRED 

  • 3D printing 

TIME REQUIRED 

  • Approximately 10.5 hours to print required parts 
  • 5 minutes to assemble 

3D PRINTING 

  • Gimbal (Horizontally or vertically clamped) 
  • Bolt 
  • Nut 
  • Clamp (requires supports) 
  • Optional Long Bolt 
  • Optional Small Cup Adapter 
  • Optional Flat Surface Adapter

PAMS Universal Lockable Joint

Overview

This is a low-cost 3D printable joint to be used for mounting assistive technology. The joint allows for 1/2 inch PVC pipes to be inserted in and allow movement in all degrees of freedom. This device is intended to work with other PAMS mounting devices to allow adjustable and lockable positioning in all directions.

Usage

The PVC is inserted into the lockable joint and then positioned in the desired location. Once the optimal mounting location is found the joint is locked in place by turning the handle of the device. This locks all the directions of the device. The joint can be repositioned by loosening the handle and tightening once again.

There is an optional larger handle that can be 3D printed as well. This version is better for individuals with reduced grip strength and allows more area to grab onto. If you are requesting this device and want to try out the larger handle please include that in the details of the request.

Build Instructions

Build instructions and design files can be found within the GitHub repository on this device page.

SKILLS REQUIRED

  • 3D Printing
  • Fine motor skills – Twisting bolt into place
  • Gripping – Using tools

TOOLS

  • Mallet/Hammer (optional)

COMPONENTS

  • 1x – M10 x 70 Hex Bolt  – Link
  • 1x – M10 Hex Nut – Link
  • 1x – M10 Flat Washer – Link
  • 1x – Rubber Washer – Link

3D PRINTING

All Components can be printed with no support at 20% infill with a 0.2 layer height.

Suction Cup Single Switch Mount

Overview

This is a switch mount based on a commercially available glass suction cup. The glass suction cup is modified with an alternative base that provides a location for mounting an assistive switch. The switch mount can be temporarily anchored to a smooth surface for high holding power. These items can be used for people who need easily adjustable switch positioning for operating AAC devices and play.

Usage

A suitable assistive switch is attached to the Switch Mount base. The Suction Cup Single Switch Mount is positioned in an appropriate location for the user on a smooth surface with the lever in the upright open position. The lever is then rotated down to engage the suction cup to the surface.

To remove or reposition the switch mount, the lever is returned to the vertically upright open position.

Build Instructions

The Suction Cup Single Switch Mount is comprised of a commercially available suction cup and a 3d printed adapter. The assistive switch is not included and should be supplied or requested separately.

Bill of Materials

1X Glass Suction Cup with 4-2/3 inch diameter cups (e.g. https://www.amazon.com/FCHO-Suction-Aluminum-Vacuum-Lifting/dp/B07HNRB2CJ, https://www.amazon.com/FCHO-Suction-Aluminum-Handle-Lifting/dp/B07DK7NKS1, ~$15)

1X 3D Printed Switch Mount Base (~$3)

3D Printing

The 3D printed Switch Mount Base is a single component and the STL file available in the downloadables section. The print requires support and is about a 6hr 20m print. The print requires about a 100 grams of material (~$3).

Assembly

First, the glass suction cup tool is disassembled to remove the original metal base. A video demonstrating the disassembly process for a similar design can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0AqfpCvtOqA.

The retaining ring is removed from the pin and stored where it won’t get lost. A clamp is used to take the tension off the suction cup, and the pin is removed along with the lever. The remaining parts are separated from the original metal base.

The suction cup parts are then reassembled into the 3d printed Switch Mount base.

Customizable Head Pointer

Overview

A head pointer is used by individuals with limited hand or arm control to interact with a physical keyboard or a capacitive, computer/tablet touchscreen. It can also be used to manipulate objects like turning pages in a book. Head pointers have two components: a mounting system that is fit to the individual’s head and a rod that is attached to the head mount. The rod can be made of plastic, wood, or metal. The composition of the rod determines if it can only be used to depress keys on a physical keyboard and manipulate physical objects, or if it can also interact with a computer/tablet touchscreen.

Head pointers have been available for decades. They can be bulky, heavy, clunky looking, and above all, expensive. In keeping with the guidelines of Volksswitch, we only consider creating an alternative design if that design would result in a significant cost savings and/or greater customization and personalization. We believe that our customizable head pointer does meet both of those goals.

 

Build Instructions

Detailed assembly instructions for measuring and customizing the head pointer and all design files are available at https://volksswitch.org/index.php/volks-devices/customizable-head-pointer/.

The head mount can be printed for about $1.25 worth of filament. Simple elastic is used to hold the mount in place. A wooden dowel can be used as the pointer if you don’t need to interact with a touchscreen. Alternatively, a capacitive pointer can be constructed from aluminum or stainless steel tubing along with a capacitive tip – both of which can be purchased online.

Customization

The size of the head mount is customizable to within a millimeter. As with any 3D-printed device, you have access to a rainbow of filament colors. Finally, the head mount designer provides accommodations for decorating the head pointer with elements that personalize the head pointer.

3D Printing

The Volksswitch Customizable Head pointer is 3D-printed using flexible filament. In all of the examples shown below, the filament used was TPU. We have used PLA to print the pointer mounting bolt, but you could print that piece out of TPU as well. The head mount is printed in pieces and assembled by sliding/pressing together five dovetail joints. You may find that you can even print the head pointer on a small 3D printer if you print a single piece at a time.
