CAD Parts List

STL files for 3D printing are oriented to print "as-is" on FDM style machines. Parts are designed to 3D print without any support material. Original design source may be downloaded using the links below:

  • keyplate.stl
  • top.stl
  • bottom.stl
  • frame.stl
  • caps.stl
  • display-cover.stl

CAD Assembly

The four key switches snap fit onto the key plate. The TFT display is secured to the key plate with M2.5 screws and hex nuts. The key plate snap fits into the frame. The QT Py is secured to the bottom cover. The bottom cover snap fits under the frame. The TFT cover is glued to the top cover. The top cover snap fits over the top cover. The caps are fitted over the kailh mechanical key switches.

Slicing Parts

No supports are required. Slice with setting for PLA material. 

The parts were sliced using CURA using the slice settings below.

  • PLA filament 220c extruder
  • 0.2 layer height
  • 10% gyroid infill
  • 60mm/s print speed
  • 60c heated bed

Design Source Files

The project assembly was designed in Fusion 360. This can be downloaded in different formats like STEP, STL and more. Electronic components like Adafruit's board, displays, connectors and more can be downloaded from the Adafruit CAD parts GitHub Repo.
