Mechanical Keyboard - SiCK-68

3D model description

Was absolutely stunned by @Druz320 Canoe inspired SMOLBOAT case. I had to have it...but it was for ortho keyboards, too large to print, and I wanted to use my teensy mount as well as other things I learned from my previous keyboards. Thus, the SiCK-68 was born.

SiCK-68

The SiCK-68 is a custom mechanical keyboard built from scratch without the price tag often associated with one. Designed to be as low cost as possible, “SiCK” stands for Super, Inexpensive, Cheap, Keyboard. It’s not for everyone but if it peaks your interest, you will need access to a mountain of patience, a 3D printer, soldering iron and equipment, and the desire to learn, create, and build. The result is a great keyboard that is functional, good looking as well as fully customizable with the help of EasyAVR or similar software. The Tada68 layout is the perfect mixture of a compact design and a functional layout without much compromise. If you like the sound of that, let the fun begin.

I had some questions asking for the marble filament I used. Here is the one I purchased for under $22: https://amzn.to/2HojoDH
