A week or so back, I was reflecting on common chassis designs for 60% keyboards, and how flatness is a major design commonality.

I thought.. since I'm 3d printing, and not laser cutting or CNC milling, I bet I could make a chassis with a little cake.

In this context, 'cake' refers to buttocks.

All things considered, not too bad!

I added a dimple to the front to accentuate the curves, but because of the off-center positioning of the space bar, it's creating some dissonance with my sense of sanity and order, so that's not going to work.

All-in-all, I think it's okay, but the design is not compatible with my modules at the moment, so I'm going to return to my original chassis and continue from there.

... having major issues uploading photographs to this. I'll have to try again later.
