The "Carbon Cadette" Case is an interpretation of the IBM F62 Kishsaver design, printed in Carbon Fiber Matte Black PLA.
Pictured here with the SA keycap set Pulse to illustrate keycap to case height (keycaps not included).
Carbon Fiber PLA is an abrasive material to 3D print with and wears out nozzles made of brass, so it is a more unique material that regular PLA.
The fibers in the PLA also give it a remarkable matte appearance.
This is a “Universal 60” layout 60% case that can fit both GH60 compatible PCBs and also some hotswap PCBs that do not have the standard middle riser (DZ60 ANSI Hotswap, 1Up Hotswap, Instant60 Hotswap).
You may also mix and match the January group buy items with an optional plate, PCB, and stabilizer set if you need the basics for a keyboard build.
There is separate optional pre-order for a 5 degree wedge if you wish to add an angle under the case. The wedges are the same size as the PCB, so they also give the case a bit of a floating appearance.
It takes a few weeks to prepare a batch of 3D prints, these will ship late January to early February.
