I had a restrictor gate break on me and spent at least an hour googling around trying to find a replacement SQUARE 4 way restrictor gate for a Sanwa joystick.
I did a quick and dirty remix to change the diamond 4 way gate into a square gate.
It was downright astonishing to me that I could find LITERALLY ZERO square replacement gates for Sanwa joysticks ANYWHERE.
There are about a million octagonal ones and circular ones and diamond/clover ones, but I haven't seen a single, regular replacement square gate. Still kinda blows my mind that nobody has ever needed to replace their gate in a hurry.
So hopefully someone finds this useful.
Printing settings don't really matter, but I printed with 4 walls and 4 top/bottom layers for extra strength since I'm sure the gate will take quite a beating over its lifetime.
Print time is ~1 hour @ 45mm/s and .20mm layer height.
Not sure why my example print kept the weird top triangle pattern but when I slice it now, it's not there.
Snaps right into place under the joystick and can be removed without damaging the connecting parts.
