A Commodore inspired Planck 64

A Commodore inspired Planck 64 with resin keycaps by 23_Andreas.
Published May 21, 2021

The alpha prototype of the case is PLA printed and the recess with the label is just a decal for now.

To reconstruct the original profile, the keycaps were scanned. At first, some keys were printed with PLA, but the author quickly switched to photopolymer resin for accuracy and detail.

"This version was kept white for a more modern look, something Commodore also went for with the C64C and C64G." The next version will sport the classic brownish colors.
