So, this is a quite specific keyboard suited to my needs, but maybe you want to build one or modify this one (I’ve included the SolidWorks files).
it’s a 69 keys mechanical keyboard, it uses cherry mx switches.
In their current form, the 3d models do work, but the 2 pillars in the center of each side, designed to take a screw in to hold the bottom plates, broke. So if you know enough solidworks, you can try to design a better way to hold the plates.
the two sides are linked by an HDMI cable so it has enough cables to transfer the matrix on the other side. I used a teensy 2.0++.
I’ll probably update this with a link to a geekhack thread later.
Don’t forget to print with the plate facing downward.
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!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
