A "mechanical" keyboard faceplate for the PocketCHIP.
Keys are held in place with straitened paperclips that are 1mm in diameter. This gives the keys a pivot point and reduces the amount of force needed to press each button.
Assembling only requires straitening paperclips and threading them through the holes in the case and keys.
A full print would require:
1x face plate
2x spacebar keys
2x backspace/enter keys
48x standard keys
I would print a few extras in case of print errors or breaks during assembly. You also may want an extra backspace/enter type key for the "P" key on the PocketCHIP. My faceplate doesn't lay completely flat and the standard key doesn't have the same click feel of the others as it's slightly higher than the rest. Using the backspace/enter key lets it reach the PCB switch dome. YMMV.
The Fusion 360 design (my first) can be found here: http://a360.co/2w4sP3R
The idea for the keys came from the HP-35s keyboard. I plan on adding some nice color-coded vinyl sticker labels similar to the WP 34S Overlay
Faceplate is based on the PocketCHIP Keyboard Faceplate by vjapolitzer
V2: 2017-09-14 Added face_switch_plate_row2_through_hole.stl which makes the row 2 paperclip hole bore through to the d-pad.
