Magnetic case and tenting for the Sweep keyboard: Msweep by Runningtarrens.
Published November 19, 2023
Creators! Feel free to tip me off about your keyboard related projects to bring them to 100K readers.

Runningtarrens aka weissbieremulsion shared a magnetic case and tenting/travel system called Msweep.

Thats my Aurora Sweep build, that I made for work. It's super nice to have both halves and the tenting legs all together in a small package. Assembly of this build is completely done without any screws. Even the Keyboard case uses magnets – weissbieremulsion.

Parts of the built are an Aurora Sweep, a custom case, and a travel case.


I designed the case myself, because I hate taking apart my builds with tools. When youre on the go and don't have tools with you, you're out of luck. So I started using magnets.

Check out the original reddit post for a demo video and the repo for files and a detailed guide.
