|Material||ABS, PC, PBT|
|Keycap mounts||Cherry MX mount, Alps mount|
DCS is predominantly made in double-shot moulded ABS, but a set in clear polycarbonate is also available. Single unprinted keycaps are also available in PBT but have not been sold as sets. Pad-printing has also been used for secondary and tertiary legends, and offered as primary method to OEMs.
DCS has thin walls, rounded corners and a coarse surface. It is otherwise quite similar to the size and slant to Cherry profile, except that it but differs significantly in the slant of the bottom rows.
DCS is now sold as limited-editions of sets, and as blanks through Signature Plastics' Pimp My Keyboard shop. It has been made mostly with Cherry MX mount, but sets with Alps mount have also been available.
Before the shop opened, DCS had been sold to enthusiasts mostly through various group orders. Many novelty keycaps have been made.
A rare earlier version with thicker walls has been found on the Wyse 85.
- Many keyboards from BTC have keycaps in a profile shaped identical to DCS, but constructed differently.
