Tried it with a Kwikset lock but no luck. The key could not be inserted in the lock due to the grooves being slightly too narrow I think.
Thanks for that link on the official key 'definitions'! I will have to incorporate them in a future update. Do you happen to have one for the 'padlock' type of key as well?
You measure the depth of each of the 5 cuts (for Kwikset keys) with a caliper, this will give you the cut code of an existing key. Going from left to right.

If you hold the key in your left hand, with the blade pointing to the right, the KeyCutCode reads from left to right. 0 for no cut up to 9 for a maximum cut. You can switch to the 'top' view in 'customizer', and hold your key in front of the screen while you adjust the values. It may take a couple of prints to find just the right match, fortunately it doesn't take long to print, and doesn't use up a whole lot of your filament. You might want to print your first try using the 'straight' key header, to save even more time / filament!
