There is definitely no shortage of great 3D printed accessories for the Nintendo Switch, ranging from to adjustable Switch stands to steering wheels to fun mounts like a Joy-con can holder. If you want to see a fine selection, please check here.
The newest addition is a Joy-con grip that can fit your phone inside it.
So, why would you want to do that? The answer‘s easy. Nintendo offers a companion app, that you can use to chat with people. For example, Splatoon 2 teams use this companion app to communicate and plan their strategies – other games might also jump on that bandwagon.
The beauty of this 3D printed Joy-con grip for smartphones is that you don‘t need to drop the Joy-cons, pick up your phone, type, drop the phone and take back the Joy-cons. You simply switch the position of your fingers and start typing right away.
Nathan Becker (also known as puglife) uploaded the 3D printable STL files at Thingiverse. Currently, the contraptions fit the Samsung Galaxy S8+, iPhone X, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, iPhone 7+, Pixel 2 XL, Note 8, and Galaxy S8+. If your phone’s not mentioned, rest assured that there will be updated and models in no time by the Thingiverse community.
The Joy-con grip shouldn’t take longer than 10 hours to 3D print with a fine resolution on your printer.
