DIY Mechanical Keyboard | Arke
This is my Fully DIY Mechanical Keyboard Project (Code name: Arke).
In this series I will design and make a keyboard from the ground up.
The layout is based on the Iris Keyboard by Lewis Ridden (/u/GAMING_FACE).
Since Iris is a Greek god I chose Arke for my version ;)
Iris Layout: http://bit.ly/2Kg2ira
- The base plate is made to be milled from a 1.5mm plate but could also be printed (not recommended)
- The main case was originally designed for threaded brass inserts, but there is also a version for straight taping into the plastic.
- The magnets are glued in place
- for the Wiring have a look at the video (as soon as it is online)
Everything is modeled using Fusion 360.
Kailh White Box Switches
White PBT DSA Keycaps
M3x6mm Anodized Screws
Added the Rest of the Parts.
Also added the unused 12-Pin Plug versions (see Video Part2)
Added the Firmware .json-File for use with http://kbfirmware.com/
For more info on that see video Part 3
