WINAND shared on Thingiverse:

DIY USB keyboard case

This is casing designed for a “DIY keyboard” USB controller pcb and a 3×4 key mechanical keyboard.

The controller can be bought at pcsensor.com. It’s called “DIY-keyboard”
The driver software lets you assign anything to one of the connected keys like a keystroke, a string or a mouse action. Perfect for a small macro keyboard, MMO gaming etc..

The keyboard comes in various sizes from 5 to 25 keys. Search ebay for “Keyboard Keys Metal Panel SPST Machine Pushbutton Switch”.
The transparant caps can be removed to be able to legend the key

The pcb can be screwed down with 4 small M3 screws. The keyboardpanel does not need to be screwed down as it will be hold tightly when the casing is closed.
5 M3 screws of approx. 5-8mm are needed to close the casing.

Note that the back screw ‘pilar’ was altered a little bit after i printed the case. These changes are also made in the files you can download.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
