remix of my cherry mx keycap base, and my arcade push button plunder.


file is parametrized. See the Arcade button thing page for more details.
The Cherry mx connector is not. since it must conform to one size from the spec. Units are millimiter, so use a scale() argument around the cherry mx module call to convert to inches or whatever inneficient unit you work with.

If anyone needs cherry mx black keyswtches (2 wire and 4 wire versions) message me. I'm in USA. Happy building

Can you make a few different lengths of this? Specifically, the sizes I'd love to see are 1x1 (this size), 1x1.25, 1x1.75, 1x6, and 2x2. I have a custom keyboard I'm designing and I think this could be the exact keycap I've been looking for. I was designing my layout based on http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:677556 but I like your design better. The wider keys would have to be able to accommodate the stabilizers of course. Maybe get this in the customizer or something? I don't know if it could do that with the stabilizers or not, I haven't messed with the customizer yet. Also, could you make one that's a square shape with rounded edges like this? That would look great too.
