Certains services de découpe exigent un seul contour extérieur continu, dans ton cas ils refuseraient parce qu'il y en a deux, alors que si on les lie ça ne forme qu'un objet à découper. Mais il est possible que Sculpteo accepte de découper en une fois ton fichier comme ça, ça pourrait être intéress...

Oui, chez Sculpteo c'était du mdf, et de l'alu de diverses épaisseurs (2 et 3mm) chez john steel. Dans tous les cas, mêmes dimensions sur les .dxf et des découpes tout à fait adaptées.

Rectification : 19.05mm c'est l'empreinte 1u entière, mes ouvertures de switchs pour plaque dans mes .dxf font 13.97mm de côté.

Oui, ça me semble bien, bonne idée de mettre quatre vis plutôt que trois sur les longueurs ;) Aucune idée pour le kerf, mais pour des découpes sur des matériaux de faible épaisseur je ne pense pas que ça soit crucial.

Attention à ce qu'elles ne soient pas trop près du bord, dans l'idéal il faut que la tête ne morde pas sur le bord (surtout si tu utilises des vis à tête fraisée, moins important si c'est des têtes bombées). J'en rajouterais sans doute au milieu, probablement là : http://reho.st/self/0122d0872d22342...

how would I wire the LEDs? Depends on how you want to drive them software-wise, in other words how you want to control them and which firmware you use.

Just because it's plate-mounted doesn't mean you can swap springs without desoldering. For that, the plate needs to have cutouts that allow switches to be opened, like 2, 3 and 4: https://geekhack.org/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=59837.0;attach=68795;image From what I can see in the imgur album p...

I'd say that different keycaps won't affect the feel of the switches themselves. But they will affect the way your keyboard feels. Not heavier, not lighter, not more tactile, but different to type on.

I can adjust to another layout, to different switch types, to PCB feature set (programmability, backlight), however if I have to type on crappy keycaps I know I'm going to feel miserable. So I'd put keycaps in 1. Thick PBT or ABS in Cherry profile or bust. The rest I can accommodate, but I'd put cas...

Great mix of keycaps!

The irony is that the US-Int layout is better suited for some language than dedicated national variants (for instance it's easier to type proper french with US-Int than with ISO-FR).

You mention 12-15€ for 200 boards, and a decent pricing for 1000 of them — what would be the price at that quantity? A Teensy 2.0 costs $16, more for Europeans, and has lesser capabilities (fewer pins, less powerful). A Pro Micro is a good cheap alternative but it's even more limited. With that in m...

Good point.

Can you reflow the switch solder joints? Sometimes they look good on the outside but have problems (cold joints). Heat them, and add a bit of solder (the basic hobbyist rosin core solder which contains flux, so that the solder flow well).
