Hi there, so I got the bug for designing stuff for sim racing, I previously made a formula style rim. This rim was great apart from one thing, the paddles! They had no feeling so I started looking for some other solutions but couldn't find anything I wanted or if I could they were too expensive so I decided to design my own. My background, I've been sim racing for around 5 years before that I did some karting and now my day job is working for a Porsche Specialist on the race cars that race in the carrera cup GB championship. i wanted the paddle to feel as much like the cup car shifter mechanism as I could so I found out the switches I needed to use and started designing. this is what I came up with, they are 3D printed in carbon infilled plastic (around 20% carbon) this makes them very strong with negligible flex. As of yet they haven't been fitted to a steering wheel but will be done next month as I'm busy for a couple of weeks. I'll update if anyone's interested.
