3D printed macropad case

An open-source magnetic macropad case by bikepackerdude.
Published October 31, 2021

Case files available on the project's GitHub page:

There are two case layouts. While the bottom part on the 7-switch layout is just pressure fitted into the top piece using a 0.1mm tolerance, the 10-switch case uses round 5x2mm magnets to snap the case parts together.

The case uses standard MX spacing, meaning you can use any MX compatible switches and keycaps.
