Summary

You have a mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX-style switches? You like Rick and Morty? You ALSO want to print a ridiculous keycap to replace one of your perfectly functional keys?

This is the model for you.

Took a Rick head from PrintPainter, slapped it on one of rshieldiii's parametric keycaps, did a little pushing and pulling of vertices in meshmixer, and BLAMMO. Rick keycap.

I was entirely unable to get this to print with the automatically generated supports that Simplify3d puts in there, so I added some supports in manually using 123D. I've also uploaded a version that doesn't have the supports if you want to roll the dice yourself.

I'm going to attempt printing in clear green next, because that makes infinitely more sense.

Notes:

It's a small part... .10 is probably as low as I'd go without it ending up looking like garbage and losing the details.

When I try to print on my Makerbot Replicator it only sees one support because the back right support is a bit lower than the rest of the model. Is there any way to correct this?

Hey! That's weird. I didn't have that issue. There's a version without supports that should print ok on most printers. Did you give that one a go? If not, then the second easiest approach could be to just drop the model down 0.1mm or so in your slicer so all of the supports start printing at the same time.

The support version was sort of an afterthought, honestly.

The version without supports works but I am concerned because of the supports within the inside of the cap and if they would interfere of the pressing of the key. I don't believe that makerbot print has the capability to drop the model down unfortunately :(

I made it, came out awesome. Really beautiful... The supports seemed overkill but worked well. Thank you!
