I seriously considering taking on the huge project of 3D printing me a new keyboard.
If I do this what design elements would you do for a custom keyboard?
What do you think of the two part keyboards?
I think it should be fairly sturdy so maybe lots of infill and thick walls.
@chmod777 Not sure about 2 part keyboards I be up to trying just seems hard to get use too.
agree on the walls but really most parts will not need much infill as they are all pretty thin like keys even a 10 percent should make it pretty solid
@omnipotens @chmod777 I'm pretty sure you don't want to print the mounting plate for the switches. You will get a fairly loose fit, which might work if you glue the switches I guess. I would recommend buying some cheap backplate or ordering a custom one from LaserBoost. :)
@hund @chmod777 well first I have never cut plastic with laser cutter never looked into it only wood and thin sheets of metal. So when you say laser cut that's what I was thinking. Second if I put a smaller nozzle on my printer it should get pretty accurate but honestly a issue like that I will figure it out when I get to that point.
For acrylic most go with 4mm though and maybe glue. It depends on how they fit.
I don't use a plate at all. The PCB gives me the perfect flex for me. :)
@omnipotens Coffee drainage holes?
