Custom unibody split

A custom 3D-printed unibody split keyboard by justsunone – with video tour.
Published June 12, 2022

The 3D-printed parts of justsunon's unnamed monoblock keyboard are put together by using sliding dovetails.

Separating the halves via the middle block helps to move them closer to shoulder-width (à la Kinesis Advantage).

The hollowed center part (with lid) accommodates the controller.

I chose the "Adafruit Feather 32u4 Bluefruit LE" for my microcontroller board for its Bluetooth compatibility with QMK.

Btw, the keyboard is handwired and hotswappable by using Kailh hotswap sockets.
