Any chance of seeing these up here again @keyboardbelle?

After this order ships I'll look into doing another Massdrop run. I bought some more 3D printers, so I'm planning on tuning those and then estimating how long it would take to print with the new setup so maybe I can offer more cases next round. Currently, I have a few Glow in the Dark cases left to print on the original printer. The new setup should be faster, but for this drop I'm sticking with the original printer since the quality and consistency are already dialed in. I think people are going to like the print quality, I'll try to snap some final pics with several keysets and post them here before the cases ship out.
@keyboardbelle I need that gray :((( love this design especially, very nice job!- I shall wait for your next run
Keyboardbelle has her own site, you can still pick these up :3 prototypes albeit.
Darn... I can't believe I missed this! D:
As a fan of 3D printing and mechanical keyboards, I'm so sad I missed this. :(
I really liked the look of this but I guess I took too long to decide lol.
Quick question for the designer though, have you thought about having the various models you offer on your site manufactured in wood or aluminum? I would be all over that even despite an obvious price increase.

Sounds good! Thanks for taking the time to reply :)
Im definitely interested in CNCed cases!
FFS Massdrop can you stop ending the drop without giving a fucking reason ? This happens ALL THE TIME and we consumers have no clue of what's going on. Was this limited to 25 ? (this wasn't specify) Was there a problem with the drop ? Why is it so hard to communicate for a website based on communities and group buy ?

You should add the limitation displayed on both imo. Or at the very least have it like "25/25 sold" when this ended so we won't have to guess what happened. But thanks for the clarification @XiK

Thanks for the feedback - will def relay this to our product / design team.
Nice to see a female creator!
Does it fit a pok3r rgb pcb?

I collect a fair amount of 60% keyboards to test fit, so in the future I will pick up an Anne Pro and Anne Pro 2 and see what revisions would need to be made to make a custom case for them. From what I gather they use a non-standard 60% mount, so I would need to make a case specifically for them.
keyboardbelle
Thank you for the consideration! All us dozen Anne Pro users would finally have a nice case if it were made!
There are going to be so many returns....
When you up your game and start milling these let me know.

Meh I am not so sure. I offer my products through a popular mechanical keyboard market where I am one of the only people selling 3d printed keyboard stuff.
Additive manufacturing may not have the precision of subtractive manufacturing but I think it has its place in the keyboard community. It allows boards like the dactyl and manuform, which would not be possible to make at a reasonable cost any other way.

Definitely. Spending $50,000 to $250,000 on plastic molds severely limits the possible designs that can be created for the keyboard community.
Some 3D printed designs are impossible to injection mold since they would need to be either two-part designs, or hollow underneath. A solid shell with hexagonal infill is easy to do with a 3D printer, but impossible to do with an injection mold.
Can these be sanded and painted? Also, are there plans to make this in a 75%?
elFick
There should be guides online for sanding and painting PLA, but they look great without any post-processing.
60% is the only standard PCB size where you can easily find shared dimensions between most 60% PCBs, so I would need to work with someone on a 75% PCB with known measurements.
Is the design final? I really like it except in the bottom area where there is a huge gap making the switches visible. I think it would look better if the gap is minimize.
zynhcs
It's a design element from the IBM F62 Kishsaver design which some have requested.
I have other designs that hide the switches completely that will be available in the future, so variations of this will definitely be available at a later date.
Any chance for a Anne Pro to fit this case?

Unfortunately the Anne Pro uses different mounting holes from the standard poker holes. However, I've seen people mod cases in order to use an Anne Pro. Because this is 3d printed plastic, it should be very easy to mod!

I know the V60 was not standard either, but it still had 3 screws in the same place and was compatible with most aftermarket cases
Look at that! KeyboardBelle is big time. I own an earlier prototype and I have to say its the nicest thing I have ever touched that was 3d printed. Feels like it was factory made. Very solid and firm.

I have one of the Iconic cases and I must say it is amazing and very top quality.
Can we get a close up picture, to see any texture.

Oh, wow! The colors look much different, especially the Dancer set; it appears almost navy and slate blue/green on my screen - I actually thought it might be Maxkeys Night King. Could you post your own images here, please? And would it be a pain in the ass to change colors now? Thank you; also, these look amazing, and I've never jumped on a drop so quickly!
Thanks for the clarification! I know DSA Granite is a much lighter gray. I wish Massdrop didn't edit the photos you sent because I would have chosen the blue instead. It's too late to change now since the drop is closed. :(
What 3D printing method is used to make these, and at what resolution?

These are 0.25mm layer height for almost the entire print.
The last four layers are printed at 0.125mm layer height (next to last two layers) and 0.0625 layer height (last two layers) for a smoother top finish.

Thank you so much for the info! :-D
