Keycaps resources for keyboard renders
« on: Mon, 05 April 2021, 05:49:25 »
I started designing my own keyboard in 3D software, however now I'm stuck when it comes to making renders. I've seen others designers renders and I was wondering if there is any place where I could find keycaps 3d models with legends. I managed to find some generic cherry profile keycaps from github but I'm looking for something that would look more realistic.

I would really  appreciate if someone could point me into right direction (otherwise I will have to project legends manually which I would prefer to avoid).

Could use some, too.
Especially KAM or XDA.

You could use KLE along with Kirpal's Keyboard-Layout-Editor-for-Blender to get some decent keycap renders with customizable legends. It supports profiles like DCS and I believe cherry/OEM (not sure about the other profiles they offer, but there's more).
