    I've been selling these mini keyboards in the hopes that people would find cool uses for them.

    Luke went and did
    , and I have to say that I'm really impressed with his project so far.

    For those of you who have 3D printers, I went ahead and took some scans of the keyboard faceplate.

    I generated a nice printable template for your use. You can find the SVG outlines and basic STLs here.

    Enjoy! Show me what you make! Order more keyboards so I can get rid of these boxes! IMG_20170330_032819.jpg

    hats a pretty nice small keyboard. I've been needing one for my Dreamcast mod, but I haven't had any luck getting a USB one to work let alone getting one small enough.

    Yeah I got both of those. The Total control works great with PS2 keyboards, but with the adapter I cant seem to get it to work. Maybe I should try some different PS2 to usb adapters?

    I've been thinking it over for a bit and I think those keyboards would work the best for my project If I can get it working.
    Send me some details and ill pick one up from you :)

    How comfortable is this to type with?

    Actually, fairly. The layout has a nice spread, and I can type about as fast as on my cellphone. There are a few modifier keys to get used to, but they make sense. There's even arrow keys!

    I bought a few keyboards from Grebb...

    and they are perfect! So slim in the hand and smooth to hold. I wanted to print a dock, So I edited the original Clip STL and made it look more like an old keyboard. It works perfect for my mini PiC I built off a Pi0. I'm going to keep working on the files and eventually upload them when I get something I like. I'm also working on a Mini Laptop using the other faceplate STL. :D

    I added a RAR with my Fusion files for anyone to mess with.

    Thanks for these!!!

    Sure thing! Glad they're working so well for you. Can you link to wherever I posted the original clip model? I can't seem to find my own content
