Title: [IC] 32-Bit Build Deskmats
Post by: retoid on Fri, 15 October 2021, 21:33:54
32-Bit Build Deskmats

Hello, I am retoid of BKM Caps. Thank you for checking in on the deskmat that I have put together!
Pixel art has been a hobby of mine for some time now and I really wanted to design something that would fit into the keyboard community.
I really hope you enjoy the design.

In the artwork you will see several of the components and tools often used when building a custom mechanical keyboard.

The quality of the mat and print are very important factors for me.
They will not be produced before having samples printed and having gone through a quality control check.

The design is pretty much set the way it is but I am always open to entertaining any suggestions or ideas.
Thank you very much for your interest and for stopping in :)

I love how theres traces on the pcb! Did you make the pcb yourself?

Thank you :)

It's all drawn in pixel art, including the PCB. The PCB is drawn to look like it would work but the traces to the IC are sort of random :D

Still working on getting the colors to print good on a sample. Hopefully I will have an update soon.

Looks really good! I've been looking for a deskmat for my blue keyboard for a while. I think the navy version makes the cut!

Awesome! Thank you very much, glad you like it. Sorry for the long delay, I had a sample made up but it was not up to par, so I am having another sample made up, currently waiting for that one.
