In an attempt to change the landscape of the gaming community, ROCCAT just launched its online 3D Printing Library, where gamers with access to 3D Printers could download the files to print designs for the ROCCAT Nyth Gaming Mice. Dubbed simply as the “ROCCAT 3D Print Library”, the website aims to help users of the Nyth Gaming Mice to change the color, style and shape of any buttons; pick the buttons that best suit a play style, or order with a few simple clicks from their partner site – Shapeways, if a 3D Printer is no where to be found.
Initially, the ROCCAT Online 3D Print Library only features 3D models for the Nyth Modular Gaming Mice, and there’s already a huge number of them available from the library and Shapeways. That includes a ton of button configurations and even a simple faceplate where you could etch your name on it. ROCCAT also said that if you have downloaded the 3D files, there’s no stopping you from playing with it so have it your way.
There is also a possibility that ROCCAT will release 3D models of their other peripherals as the 3D Library could potentially invite ROCCAT owners to customize their current gears. We do hope that ROCCAT will not stop with the Nyth alone, as the potential is really huge. For more info about the release, read the PR below. Follow ROCCAT at Facebook
