BrownFox step by step

14mm (it's a square), you can have them a bit smaller just to have the switches fit firmly (something like 13.50mm, but it depends on the definition of the laser cutter).

Apologies for bumping an old thread. Does anyone have the DWG files for this plate? I thought I did a pretty thorough search but could only turn up a template. I'm happy to adjust the template to my own needs but I can't seem to figure out the measurements for the space bar stabilizers. If anyone could tell me that or point me to a specification I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

Are you finished? I'm wondering if I could have all the files for the plate diagram, acrylic diagrams, etc. ;)

the delay is the same, I believe arduino is simply slower to boot, but you could always change bootloader I guess

Hello, matt3o. I've been reading a lot of your custom work and been very inspired. My question is probably a fairly dumb one, but what gauge wire do you use? Also, just personally, do you use lead-free solder or not?
Thanks, and keep up the amazing work!

Hello. I'd first like to thank matt3o for making this guide.
I built a Neutrino and got it working perfectly. Except for LEDs.

I'm trying to add these neopixels https://www.adafruit.com/products/1426 (from adafruit) to my Neutrino keyboard. I got the TMK_keyboard firmware to work without LEDs. I followed OrangeNinja's post on reddit https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/2vz1hz/modification_custom_portal_themed_60_board_and_a and added anything to do with LEDs to my version of gh60 code. But it won't compile.


I'm thinking it may have something to do with the "Makefile". Specifically the references to "TOP_DIR" They are different from the default gh60's "TMK_DIR".

Do I need to put this modified version of gh60 in a different directory before start "make -f Makefile"

I'm kind of over my head here. I apologize in advance for my n00bness.

we probably need a more detailed log of the errors you are getting during compilation

ROFLMonster made a few posts about supporting those LEDs in the big TMK thread: workshop-f7/how-to-build-your-very-own-keyboard-firmware-t7177-60.html#p204991

Thanks @matt3o and others that have inspired me to build my own keyboard, Im still waiting on parts seems easy enough to do my only 2 question as of right now till i get my stuff in.

1: I'm thinking of using solid core 30 gauge wire its small so i'm not sure if that would work as i probably need 20-15 gauge so is 30 gauge usable and does it matter if it is solid or strand cable.

2: Can I use a mico/mini usb to usb c on the teensy 2.0?

Does anybody know which wires he used to connect the diode to eachother and the teensy to the matrix (diameter/type)?
Also, how does one go about attaching the teensy to the mini usb, can someone explain or point me to a guide/thread?

This is information that any newb looking to follow the build needs to know and isn't in the original post (it is incomplete)
I suggest adding this and the screw size (M2) to the original post, as I found that somewhere in this thread and not in the build log.

Other than that it is a great build, thank you matt3o
