A “mechanical” keyboard faceplate for the PocketCHIP.

Keys are held in place with straitened paperclips that are 1mm in diameter. This gives the keys a pivot point and reduces the amount of force needed to press each button.

Assembling only requires straitening paperclips and threading them through the holes in the case and keys.

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!
