So last night I designed some 3D models of a potential cherry profile gamer kit! I sat there with my calipers and gingerly measured some GMK 9009 caps to get as close a profile as I could in Fusion 360. there are three distinct caps each with a profile similar to rows 1, 2, and 3 of cherry caps.
I made some renders to show what the shapeways 3D print should come out like!
These keys are very very similar in profile to cherry caps save for the three cutout in each to give the cap a deep textured feel. The caps are slightly scooped so in addition to the groves there is the familiar curve of cherry caps.
The caps are being printed with shapeways frosted extreme detail option to get as much detail as possible. When they arrive they will be sanded and I will create silicon molds. From there I should be able to make gamer kits, MOBA and FPS, a regular appearance on the Keymaker.Space store!
In other news I finally got shipping notification and tracking information on the TMX stems!
