This is a 2-state click button with an internal mechanism similar to that of a retractable pen. This version has twice the clearance of the [original](https://thangs.com/mythangs/file/22376). This can be used with or without a long M3 bolt to transfer the click action into a secondary linear or rotary motion. Use the case with holes to see the cam pop in and out of view each click. **Original** [https://youtu.be/bJq6pNM4eR8](https://youtu.be/bJq6pNM4eR8) **Double Clearance Update** [https://youtu.be/0txw6uiIqhg](https://youtu.be/0txw6uiIqhg) **Hardware** Required A spring that is about 15mm long and 5mm in diameter. The design can use larger and smaller springs, but this size worked best for me. Spring harvested from a standard click pen are a little longer than needed, but should work. If the click mechanism feels too stiff, shorten the spring with wire cutters. I had a little success creating a spring out of PLA filament softened in hot water. This would probably work if you're willing to test different coil sizes, but metal springs will still be best. Optional A long M3 bolt to transfer the click action out of the device for some secondary purpose - or just to demonstrate the change in distance caused by the click. **Printing** All parts can be printed without supports. The cam includes a thin 1 layer bridge over the bolt hole. If you intend to use a bolt, puncture that bridge with the bolt. **Getting a good click** I found the the button click improves after using it for a while. Some people have added wax or Vaseline to the sliding parts. If the button is still sticking, try printing the cap and button at a 0.16mm layer height, and the cam at 0.2mm. This guarantees that the sliding surfaces have slightly offset "steps" and are less likely to catch. **Can I sell copies of this?** Yes!
