The Interact Switch is a high quality, modular 3D printable switch design.
The tactile feel of the switch is on par with commercial switches, coming in at about 35 g of activation force across the surface of the switch. The base has the same footprint as a Jellybean switch, and should work with any Jellybean switch mounts.

There is a wide array of different designs: from a simple flat button, to textured designs, to a dome, and even some wobble switch variants.

The switch base incorporates 6 slots that are ideal for a variety of mounting options, including using VELCRO straps
