Slicing Software

The recommend settings above should work with most slicing software. However, you are encouraged to use your own settings since 3D printers and slicing software will vary from printer to printer.

Clean up

Prepare the cavity for the tactile button by removing any material around the actuator. It should freely move when the triggger handle is squeezed.

Test snap fit

Use a hobby knife to remove any material around the walls of the cavity and then test fit the snap fit tolerance with the 6mm tactile button.

Prepare standoffs

Tweezers or a small screw driver can be used to slightly enlarge the mounting holes for the standoffs. This will make it easier to create the threads inside the standoffs.

Thread mouting holes

Use #2-56 3/8 screws and small screw driver to create the threads inside the standoffs.

Make sure the threads are straight and not skewed!
