DIY wheel button plate
1 1

1 post in this topic

Hey everyone.  I currently have a t500 set up but I'm interested in making my own wheel with buttons. I tried searching but I may not be using the correct words or searching for the right thing. If there is already a thread, point me in the right direction please.
 
My plan is to use an aluminum plate on the front and rear with a 3D printed housing to cover all of the wires.  
 
Here's my question.   I have a list of the minimum number of button/switches that I'd like to utilize. If I could do more I would. But I'm not sure what type of board is best.  What type of boards does everyone use? I think an Arduino nano would work for the number I have here but any more and I won't have enough inputs. 
 
Are there better boards, or easier pin connectors that I could use?  Or a simulation program to help me with troubleshooting?
