A 5x6 Dactyl Manuform variation by Mike Pisman aka mpisman – with 5 thumb keys and smooth edges.

This is my first Dactyl Manuform keyboard. I made a variation of Dactyl 5x6 with 5 keys for thumb cluster. I wanted to smooth out edges of the keyboard and that's what came out – mpisman.

STL files and more photos available on GitHub:

  • Print parameters: 0.12 mm layer height and Polly Terra PLA filament.
  • Logical layout: Halmak with minor modifications.
  • Keycaps: PBT ZDA Match.

Workflow of smoothing out the edges:

I used some generator to get an step file, I think it was this one, then edited it using Shapr3Dmpisman.
