- 2x EC11 Rotary Encoder
- 1x Arduino Pro Micro (or Chinese clone)
- 1x 6x6x5mm Tact Switch
- 1x 3 Colors of 26AWG Wire with Appropriate Heat Shrink (or similar)
4x M3x8mm Hex Socket Button Head Screws (these can be as short as 3mm or as long as 12mm)
4x M3x10mm Hex Socket Button Head Screws
8x M3 Brass Threaded Inserts (heat set inserts)
- 1x Case_main
- 1x Back Cover
- 2x Encoder Mount Bar
- 2x Knob
1) Solder According to wiring guide (or use a breadboard)
2) Use a soldering iron to set the threaded inserts into the case where the back cover and encoder mount bars will be secured
3) You can disassemble the encoder to remove the detent so it doesn't click as it rotates, to make the mouse much more usable. Don't worry about the metal tabs breaking, that is what the encoder mount bars are for: to hold it together when you break all the tabs. (they also enhance the feeling of the left and right click)
4) Secure both encoders in with the nuts they came with, do not use a washer.
5) Use the M3x10mm screws to secure the encoder mount bars on the back of each encoder
6) Use H O T glue to secure the tact switch (this switch is to reset the arduino for flashing)
7) Trim the leads on the bottom of the arduino with flush cutters and slide it into place on the back cover
9) Secure the back cover with the remaining 4 M3 screws
10) Move on to flashing with the arduino with QMK Toolbox
Download QMK toolbox, and follow whatever the most recent guide here:
If you are follwing this guide several years from now and the github guide is broken like they always are, just search "Flash QMK Toolbox"
The .hex file needed to flash the arduino is in the dowloads with the STL files.
Most arduino pro micro board just need the reset button double pressed (very quickly) to enter reset.
