Add on to V5 controller

I have seen a few teams add on 3D printed levers to their V5 controller. It allows them to assess the buttons on their controller easier. Does this follow the rules of the game? Is this allowed and legal?

Thanks for your help.

Here’s a Q&A from In The Zone where these types of controller add-ons were ruels legal. Although previous seasons’ Q&A rulings don’t automatically carry over, there’s no reason to think that the ruling might change in this particular case, since the underlying rule is the same as it was then, and as you say equivalent parts for the v5 controller (including the online challenge winner you embedded a photo of) were fairly popular in TP.

As far as I know they are legal as they were last year (plus many teams at worlds used these). I have the parts for 3d printing if you need them as well.

Do you have the program so I would be able to print out the parts?
If you do, I would like the file. Thanks, I appreciate it.

can I get, please and thanks

It would be greatly appreciated if you could send me the story files :slight_smile:

I also request for the same files. Sorry for the overload of requests.

Can I please also get them? Thank you.

May I also have the file?

It’s honestly just easier to post the file in a new thread at this point. I’d consider that, unless there’s something private about that specific file that warrants your selectivity on who can receive it.

Could I also have the file?

Thanks!

Yeah, I am not the creator of the CAD somebody shared it with me. I mean the parts are available to the public if you go to the contest page on robot events.

can I get, please and thanks

edit by forum mods: this was flagged as spam but may be a legitimate post @harebert can you be a bit more specific with your question ?

Here is a link to the online challenge entry where the V5 scuff controller first appeared. From that page you can download a .f3d file which can be converted to .stl for 3D printing in Autodesk Fusion 360 (free for students) or possibly by other means.

Would be great if you could send me the CAD file.

me two please

thanks ff

Could I have the files too? Thanks

Here it is you will need to request access from the owner and then convert the file to .stl or whatever format you need.

It can also be found at the bottom of the page at This link -credits to @holbrook for providing the link to the entry
