The Lattice60 is a 60%-ish handwired keyboard in a 3D-printed low-polygon case, designed by PrimeNumber aka NumLocksmith with standard keysets in mind.

Low-poly design is a style which can be applied to three-dimensional models. It intentionally reduces the number of polygons, which make up the mesh of the model. Because that obfuscates some details, it is kind of a minimalistic style -– and I love it. So I wanted to apply it to my keyboard case – PrimeNumber.

In addition to the case files, the author also has a tutorial on low-poly case design in Fusion 360.

Lattice60 allows you to reuse many parts from your existing keyboards. The custom plate and case are designed to accommodate off-the-shelf keycaps with various profiles, as opposed to most ortholinear keyboards which require 1u-only keysets with a uniform (row-independent) profile.
