Merry X-Mas y‘all!
For the first time the front of the DSKY is closed. I‘ve finished Keyboard v1.0. Althrough I‘m not completely happy it‘s a step ;-)
...some sanding needed but I‘m pretty sure that it will not be the last version...
First attempt was to create an „inlay“ for the keycaps provided by Manoel. For this I used the the font Gorton, converted the text in Inkscape in a path and included it as *.svg than in Fusion360. Than filled the text in the inlay with acyl colour.
Since this left me with a clearly visible frame from the keycap, I designed my own (the top section 1mm shorter) and used the space for an inlay which is covering the complete surface, also this time I used the font OpenGorton which I think better match the original:
Shortcomings: The fonts for the ciphers are too big. The acyl colour is sinking in. I‘ve ordered some sugro to give it a try.
Since I (...and I saw Manoel found it also ;-) ) stumbled over a video in youtube from Patrick Rigney I‘m very intrigued by his keycap design since it would also allow backlighting. Maybe I‘ll try to go that way...
