Dana Sorensen aka darsor shared the files of the Slant, a wireless split keyboard:

I liked the idea of the Corne or Sweep, but I didn't like the microcontroller hanging on the side. So I gave my design a small 7.5 degree tent (Slant), making enough room for a nice!nano and a larger 350 mAh battery to go underneath the PCB.

The case is custom designed and printed. The author used Onshape to CAD the entire design.

PCB and key placement were aided by Ergogen, which simplified things quite a bit.
