That said, the CDSA (sorry Darryl, "Tilted spherical choc keycap" doesn't work as a name) is Alescito's personal remix of spherical dish and Cherry tilt for Kailh choc V1.

I have created a new profile based on LDSA and Cherry. This new profile merges the dish of LDSA with the tilt of Cherry – Alescito.

The author used Darryl's STLs as inspiration but he designed the CDSA files from scratch ("The bottom part is just a horrible extruded cube"). Otherwise these caps are shorter and the dish is a little bit smaller.
