Split bluetooth keyboard

TerranceN made a split Bluetooth 36-key keyboard with self-milled PCB.

This unnamed 36-key split Bluetooth prototype keyboard is powered by nice!nano V2s running ZMK.

The milled PCB (gallery) was designed in KiCad, CAM in flatcam, and milled on a Genmitsu 1810 CNC router.

Answering a question about the PCB routing TerranceN told:

Yup, I milled them using flatcam and a Genmitsu 1810 CNC Router. The one I bought came with a comically warped X-axis lead screw, which (I think) led to a bunch of manual cleanup/scraping of isolation routes after milling, so I can't say I recommend it unless you have time to tinker with it / dial it in. Was super cheap though ($200)!
