Case for Let's Split v2 PCB.
Both MX and Alps switches compatible.

You will need:

  • 8x M2 5mm standoffs
  • 8x M2 6mm screws

I bought standoffs from Aliexpress
You may have to sand the holes to put standoffs in (depending on your printer).

Nice build!! Where did you get those keycaps?


Thanks for the reply, Tsuka!!

I will be looking at those places.. I found something similar here:


But I have not found anywhere else that is selling a set, all small keys...

Thanks again!

I noticed in your build log that you soldered the diodes on the top side of the PCB. What is the thickness of the top plate/section of your case design? Most tuts/logs I've read have said to mount diodes topside if plate is 3mm or less... otherwise mount on bottom side. I want to make sure I place the diodes in the most optimal way.

The thickness is 3mm, designed to solder diodes on topside of PCBs.

Cool, thanks for the quick reply! I just saw you listed a new design! Super clean. I'm going to try to assemble one with your new design over the next week.

Great! Glad you like that design.

I have noticed in the build log that you are using ALPS/Matias switches. Did you also get the keycaps from matias? I just love the matias switches but it is very hard to get compatible hardware - mostly keycaps :)

Yes, these blank keycaps are from Matias. I wish there are more Alps/Matias keycaps available. Couldn't find DVORAK keycaps.

Are m3 screws too big for this? Gonna use thread inserts. I don't know how big the screw holes are in the pcb

The holes on the case are too small for M3 screws. I recommend using M2 screws.

Wow - that is a very clean design, looks very solid. Nice work, thanks for sharing!

I’m so glad at this nice comment! Thank you. Hope you like
