Valve has made the CAD files for the Steam controller public for players to redesign to their “heart’s content.”
The files were made public on the Steam Community site and provide “the geometry of all externally visible parts.” The intention is for players to customise the controller to how they would want them. Valve is encouraging everyone to share their creation, but they would need to go through Valve if they wanted to sell their work.
They have already kicked off the creative sharing by “releasing a couple variants of the Battery Door that allow you to carry your USB wireless receiver with you.” All you need is access to a 3D printer and you’re ready to go.
We are looking forward to some interesting designs and pictures being uploaded to the community site.
