A Streamdeck-like macropad called Marconi16, because it’s inspired by vintage radios.

A three-pice PCB design with stylish PCB art and wooden chassis.
The PCB for the Elite-C and switches is identical. Cheap way to take advantage of the minimum order of 5 at JLCPCB.
It’s the first time to1ne has made his own PCBs. Everything worked on the first try, so that’s a big achievement. There are a few flaws though:
- the USB connector should be more on the outside, the bottom PCB makes it hard to plug in,
- the PCBs should be wider, to give the wood more material to clamp on.
That said, you can find the PCB design files here: https://gitlab.com/to1ne/marconi16
