Värdera keycaps Värdera is a low-profile Choc-compatible keycap – STLs shared by braindefender. KBD.news
Published October 9, 2022
Nikita Shirokov aka braindefender shared his custom Värdera keycaps.
Värdera caps are custom designed low-profile keycaps for Kailh Choc switches – but with MX spacing! They are uniform and more on the spherical side, although not entirely spherical.
And there is a special rounded thumb keycap "for better ergonomics and ease of use".
