- All 3D printable CAD files (in STL or 3MF) format required to print the parts for the chassis lever
- Batches of the above with all objects correctly oriented on the print bed ready for printing
- Wiring diagram
- Bill of Materials - other hardware parts (bearings, screws etc) you will need
- Assembly steps
- An inventory of the screws so you can cross check which screw size is used where

Quick build, maximum immersion
Compared to the throttle and stick this chassis lever is really simple to build, as it only requires two buttons. It’s an amazing showcase of the ever-evolving authentikit engineering, The spring-loaded lever and the hydraulic damper really make this feel solid.
I would love to see the hydraulic damper built in to all of the mag hall and mclick units as standard parts. It really takes the feel to the next level.
I’ve used prusament pistachio green and spray painted the black and silver bits. Sourcing parts can be a bit of a pain in the US, but maybe in the future we could have regional versions.
Overall, I can’t say enough great things about Authentikit projects.

Made my day my friend! So pleased you've got this much enjoyment out of it!
Indicator mechanism works a charm
A really easy build, and I'm so impressed with how the UP/DOWN/IDLE indicator window works.
I made this with the kit from Sim Kit Supplies and 3D printing the downloaded parts. You can get away without the hydraulic dampener if you're on a budget, especially if you get the cork friction disk to a good tension, but it does make for a really nice feel so I'm pleased I got one. I decided to paint on the lettering rather than use the stickers, but the stickers are a great idea for those who don't enjoy the entirely optional painting and finishing.
For mock rivets, I used the little rubber pads for stopping draws and wardrobe doors banging.
