    I'm an OpenSCAD newbie, and I'm looking for help rounding some edges or doing some fillets. This is ultimately to both use personally and contribute to I made a pyramidal trapezoid and subtracted it from the top of a cube. Video attached for visualization purposes.
  • first build! €36 budget build, 3D printed and salvaged from a broken keyboard
    And i used this library to generate the white 3d printed keycaps in openscad.

    This already exists but better: here
  • 3D printed keycaps
    I'm only aware of one non-groupbuy reasonable-ish-price SA keycap set that supports Dvorak (SA Crisis). I already have it, but fancied something different, and more appropriate for the office, for my other ErgoDash. I 3D printed these keycaps using this GitHub library:
    When I printed my keys I used an OPENSCAD library called KeyV2 (or at least it's the most popular hit on google) that let me recess the legend into the keys. I've got custom legends and you can select what profile you want as well, so I was able to shape the keyboard as well.
    You probably need upside_down(), have a look at the single extruder multi-material example:
  • Trouble finding keycaps.
    If you have a 3D printer, I highly recommend printing a few keycaps in DSA and a few in SA to test. You could use this library to generate them, as I have done here.
  • First Ever Hand-Wired Build (Cmd Dactyl 5x7)
    For both project's I used the KeyV2 parametric keycap library with openscad to generate the keycap stl's. I really recommend really looking through the documentation and example files as this is a really powerful tool for generating keycaps. [KeyV2 github]

  • First attempt to print a keycap with a fdm 3d printer
    I just want to post this, because I saw a lot of uglier attempts on printing keycaps with a fdm 3d printer. This model was created using and the only thing I modified was the print position. This keycap got printed on the frontface instead of the bottom face (at 0.1mm layerheight).
  • Can someone model these special double-wide keycaps for my new keyboard? I drew a mockup in photoshop with specs but I don't really have the tools or know-how to actually create the model. More details in comments.
