3D printed button panel for 3D printer!

I made a button board for my 3D printer, so I can avoid the annoying menus on the printer! It also has a self-destruct button, because everything should have a self-destruct button! In the image below: button board mounted above a Raspberry Pi in a 3D printed case next to my Creality Ender 3 printer with a mirror bed. The Raspberry Pi is wired to the button board, the printer, a camera pointed at the printer, a keyboard (out of shot), a screen (out of shot) and an Ethernet cable.

I'm really happy with how this worked out, the paper and plastic bend a little bit when you press on it, and it presses the buttons! But just in case, I programmed it so if multiple buttons are pressed at the same time, it ignores that. This way, I avoid some accidents!

Below, you can see it without the paper! This is my own design, you can find it on Thingiverse and print it for your own Raspberry Pi or Arduino projects! It is customizable, so you can size it for any prototype board! It also has (optional) Fischertechnik attachments!

This is what's inside! I've had this prototype board for a long time, and I finally found a way to use it!
