marcdosh575 aka maku57's first custom split keyboard: the Ortholily. Its layout is based on the Lily58, but is ortholinear, 3D-printed, handwired – and the author published the STLs.
I've built a Dactyl Manuform a while ago then quickly realized that it's not the most portable of keyboards. I searched around and while I think that the Redox was a good alternative, I wanted something smaller and simpler with tenting capabilities – marcdosh575.
Designed in Freecad, the STL files are available
here is a PDF with a quick and dirty build guide, BOM, and some more photos.
