The first version worthy of prototyping is done! 🎉
I checked and double checked all parts, curves, lines, layers, dimensions and I can confidently say the prototype will have very few fuck-ups 😅.

This version also includes some improvements you suggested after my last update.
Here they are:

☑️ Changed the main console depth regulation to 5 positions instead of 4, for more precision when adjusting the wheel depth.
☑️ Reshaped the sides of the pedals mount to add space when it’s at the lowest position, now the pedals go all the way before your shoes touch the sides.
☑️ Mirrored the shifter/mouse mount location to the other side so it serves as another storage/mounting option for whatever you feel like putting there.
☑️ Redesigned the handles to match the diameter of a standard bike handle grip if you want to add those.
☑️ Added my beautiful logo carved next to the wheel.
☑️ Lastly in some key spots I added a 🔩 system to optionally fix the structure with bolts and t-nuts and have the whole thing be even more sturdy, the t-nuts dig into the material when the bolt is fastened and makes the joint rock-solid, not that it needed it at all but some of you may be more aggressive drivers than I’ve ever seen.. this will take care of everyone 👍.

This is the last version before the prototype 😬

Wish me luck.


📅 Update 2021-12-07 – Hey everyone! my sim racing cockpit project’s almost done (waiting for the prototype) and this time I decided to make your lives easier by getting makers and quotations myself and selling the cut parts.
For that I need to know your locations to contact local makers and discuss materials & prices.

👉 Want one? let me know here!


📅 Update 2022-01-28 – If you wished me luck, it didn’t work 😅. Believe it or not I’m still waiting to get my prototype. Early December I contacted several local makers and all of them were neck deep with large construction orders and not taking any new pnes so I had to wait. 2022 came, the first two weeks of January everything is closed here for summer holidays and two months later here I am, with a finished design and no prototype. Yesterday I accepted the first quotation I could get and it looks like it could be ready next week.


📅 Update 2022-02-19 – Finally got the prototype made! Check out Update 9.

      Haha thanks jon! with 3 fuck-ups or less and I’ll consider myself very lucky.

      Hi Javier. I saw the Playdesk 2 design, it is very creative and interesting. Can I buy the cnc design file from you and pay for it in bitcoin?

      • Javier on 2021-12-04 at 9:48 AM

        Hey Saeid! glad you like it! yes, send USD 15 to bc1qshxy5g057pfhuvf7pafaugs72rasvgljv27ncd and let me know the version you want, mm or inches and the playDesk 2 width (or just the item code). I’ll e-mail the file to the address you entered here.

        Oi Gonzalo! greetings from Uruguay! Glad you liked it! I’m not going to sell this plan but I do plan to sell the finished units on this site by ordering the cut to local makers around the world. Let me know if you’re interested in fulfilling orders and I’ll get in touch with the details soon. Javier.

    • Javier on 2021-12-16 at 3:54 PM

      Awesome! and yeah I’ll definitely be delivering to all mainland US once I’ve negotiated partnership conditions with makers.

      Hey Ruben! glad you like it! I won’t sell this design, in fact I’ll stop selling plans soon but depending on your location you’ll be able to get a finished unit in the next few months. Subscribe below to get notified when new markets become available, thank you!
