Re: Spring weights

Yes and yes, switches are complicated beasts and different stems will have different actuation points and thus the "actuation" figure is inherently inaccurate. The way that I think about these numbers is they just give an "arbitrary scale". I am looking for springs which fit in the gap between 67 an...

Spring weights

It seems to me that most of the (even custom) cherry mx spring weights are distributed quite uniformly between 35g and 67g (actuation). Then there is a gap to 80g and larger gaps down the road. Anybody has suggestions for weight between 67 and 80? These should be between clears and grays for the che...

Switch stickers and films

Hi deskthority,

I am wondering if anyone has tried switch stickers or films on plate mounted switches. They are supposed to reduce wobble. Are they considerably effective?

Thanks

You have a left arrow on your j key. I guess the keycap has no deep dish and I wonder how does it work without that. I would be pretty lost without a homing key

Re: Round 5 in stock / Round 6 in production / phase 2 kits for sale!!!

I don't use Blender, nor do I have any desire to install it on my computer. But I'm sure there must be a common geometry format that is compatible with both Houdini and Blender (e.g., .OBJ or something). Saving out the models in that format would be pretty straightforward, if someone familiar with ...

May I ask if you used some publicly available models for the SA profile or if you cooked them up from scratch? I modeled them myself from scratch. Note, however, that I only created a single 1u model for each row profile. To generate the other sizes, I've set things up so Houdini can resize the 1u ...

Apparently SP has a mould for that (as it shows up for sale at pmk, although out of stock).

And, no I want it for backspace on R1, just shaving off .5 units from every row and make a (marginally) more compact 60% layout

Flat case for a 60%

Does anyone have suggestions for a flat case for a 60%? All that I can find have the 5-7 degrees angle which I find undesirable with the SA profile.
I thought of 3d printing some angled feet to compensate the angle, but I have doubts that it will look good.

Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks

Difference between pcb and plate mounted cherry stabilizers

Can pcb mounted cherry stabilizers be used without a pcb on a plate? (as with the switches?). For some reason plate mounted cherry stabilizers are uncommon, so I was wondering if the pcb mounted could serve both purposes.
