Prusa i3 MK3
Prusament PLA
0.6mm nozzle, 14 mins with 0.2mm layer height, looks great.

99% scale is good fit, 100% is loose. 98% is too small.

Highly recommend printing it upside down. It makes the top smooth and the connector part is less likely to get distorted on the print bed.

Keycap is a bit loose, may need to scale down for use.

FYI - Had some issues slicing on Simplified3D, it looked at it as two different parts. I had to "make solid" in meshmixer for it to be usable.

will this work with the razer blackwidow chroma?

Idk if you're still wondering but I printed one for mine to test, and it does fit, it's just a little shorter than the standard Razer keys.

Printed a couple of these in ABS and they look AMAZING! However, they stick to the cherry switches when they get pressed down. Seems like the inside doesn't leave enough room to get around the entire switch and pop back up. I'm no good with 3D modeling so I can't say how to fix, but I will be looking to dremel the inside of the key a little bit.

Thanks. Yeah, honestly unless your printer prints things absolutely perfectly, then the keycap will need some cleaning up underneath. The models used to make the keycap aren't originally mine, so idunno about the peculiarities of the model. I just made and uploaded this thing for myself really, never expected it to be this popular. Maybe I'll refine the model later today.

I appreciate the quick response! Let me know when you get a chance to fix it and I'll make myself another set!
