roc3It’s funny. I just got done writing about a report citing that 3D printing’s greatest contribution is in the medical sector. Which makes sense. But, then again, everything seems like a natural fit for 3D printing. Take gaming’s ultra-individualistic DIY element: everything from customized equipment to game characters and other paraphernalia appears to be in synch with 3D printing’s demographic niche. This article provides a great example of the 3D printing/ gaming synchronicity. If you are a serious gamer, perhaps you have heard of the Hamburg, Germany-based ROCCAT’s hyper modular gaming mouse — the ROCCAT Nyth.

I don’t play video games much, but a friend tells me that the mouse is very important. In the company’s own words, the ROCCAT Nyth’s:

“…near boundless customization extends its use far past the competition. No matter the genre or taste, its catalogue of side-parts and buttons joined with an expertly engineered foundation combine to make a revolutionary device that serves the imagination, creativity and high standards of gamers today.”

Sold yet? Interchangeable buttons and side-parts allow you to change your mouse from (and get ready for some serious gaming lingo) MMO to an FBS or MOBA-centric piece of gaming gear. And now you can customize your Nyth’s 33 spare buttons further using ROCCAT’s massive online 3D printing library. You can choose the color, shape and style of shapebuttons you want, depending on how you are going to use the mouse. In fact, there’s exactly 36.738 out of the box configuration possibilities, and this is before we get into color, shape, and style of buttons.

That’s still not all folks. In order to ensure highest quality mouse parts, ROCCAT has teamed up with 3D printing giant Shapeways. CEO and Founder of ROCCAT, René Korte, chose Shapeways for the guaranteed quality:

“Shapeways is the perfect partner for us when it comes to 3D printing. Our designers create new buttons continuously and we want to be absolutely sure they work when printed. If you order a button set from our website it is ROCCAT approved and Shapeways makes certain our quality standards are met.”

Shapeways already ships 120,000 prints a month, and so its infrastructure is clearly ready for ROCCOT Nyth customer demands. You can purchase already designed parts for your Nyth with the simple click of a button.

Finally, as you can imagine if you are familiar with 3D printing aficionados, people are going to want to design their own parts, and ROCCAT has made this possible as well.  You can find your products files in the 3D data library, download them, and customize them to your gaming/ 3D print designer heart’s content.

Like I said, when I started this article I admitted to not having much gaming experience, but now that I can customize a mouse with all kinds of different colored and shaped 3D printed parts, the gaming world may just have another fanatical convert on its already quite full hands!
