Form for silicone cast button pad
by prusajr, published
I\'ve designed form for casting silicone button pad. They have exact same dimensions as buttons on monome. Now I have to do few more tries to avoid some errors but Itll be great. Designed in OpenSCAD and its parametrized, so you can generate as big form as you want :-) there is a room for LED inside button, just like in button pad from Sparkfun etc.
It works, but the feel of pressing isn't same as on the monome, I\'ve updated design a little and it should be better now.
If you have vacuum chamber you are lucky and you can have bubble free cast :-)
I\'ve tried to embed some conductor when casting, but it wasn\'t great idea. Next time > cast and then glue the conductor :-) (in this case simple aluminium foil) >>> any tip for better and easier conductor??
Faceplate and PCB for this button pad is on the way too!! I\'m looking forward to print my own MONOME!!
Start with small form like 1x1 or 2x2. Oil the form before casting. Provide feedback ;-) !!
