So did anyone get the scaling down? I want to make a 30mm button setup but would rather not do trial and error if some one else has

Would it be possible for you to make a similar design for 30mm arcade buttons? I am currently looking for exactly this design however I purchased 30mm buttons rather than the 24 you design here.

It seems scaling the model by 125% when you import it will achieve a close result (close enough for me) but of course the LED and screw holes and channels are going to be different as well.

Ah, sorry. Unfortunately, I built this based on a schematic of the actual DJ TechTools MidiFighter, which uses 24mm buttons. However you could always scale the print up a few percentages to maybe 115% or 120%, may take some trial and error prints, but once you do that you can scale the other pieces the same percentage to fit. That may give you close to what you need, or you could drop the STL file into 123Design or say Tinkercad to adjust the file.

Sweet! Any recommendations for good DIY tutorials?

@dokool here you go, I actually made one myself: https://youtu.be/aVf_el4N0tI

Although I use a launchpad, I've always liked the MID fighter; I've considered building my own controller from scratch, and this is a nice starting point.

Thanks Big-E! Yeah, I have both launchpad and MF, but if you're going DIY the MF is much more practical to replicate!
