Looking for some help getting the builder to draw my plate.

Here's my KLE:

["Esc",{x:1},"F1","F2","F3","F4",{x:0.5},"F5","F6","F7","F8",{x:0.5},"F9","F10","F11","F12",{x:0.25},"PrtSc","Scroll Lock","Pause\nBreak"],
[{y:0.5},"~\n`","!\n1","@\n2","#\n3","$\n4","%\n5","^\n6","&\n7","*\n8","(\n9",")\n0","_\n-","+\n=",{w:2},"Backspace",{x:0.25},"Insert","Home","PgUp"],
[{w:1.5},"Tab","Q","W","E","R","T","Y","U","I","O","P","{\n[","}\n]",{w:1.5},"|\n\\",{x:0.25},"Delete","End","PgDn"],
[{w:1.75},"Caps Lock","A","S","D","F","G","H","J","K","L",":\n;","\"\n'",{w:2.25},"Enter"],
[{w:2.25},"Shift","Z","X","C","V","B","N","M","<\n,",">\n.","?\n/",{w:2.75},"Shift",{x:1.25, _c:"0"},"↑"],
[{w:1.25},"Ctrl",{w:1.25},"Win",{w:1.25},"Alt",{a:7,w:6.25},"",{a:4,w:1.25},"Alt",{w:1.25},"Win",{w:1.25},"Menu",{w:1.25},"Ctrl",{x:0.25},"←","↓","→"]

I'm trying to add a rounded rectangle cut out relative to the up arrow key.

I plug in some settings:

but then I get this output:

(Attachment Link)

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I've read the documentation multiple times but I'm still coming up short.

As far as I understand, I've defined the arrow key as the relative to point, left the first relative to field blank, and filled in the second relative to field whose numbers should be relative to the center of the switch I defined earlier. But no cut is made. I tried switching it to other layers(for a sandwich case) like the bottom to see if its actually making the cut but it still isnt.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

I think custom cutouts are broken right now. Adding material seems to work, but cutouts don't. It looks like the bug was introduced back in January : https://github.com/swill/kad/issues/19

Does someone have the coordinates for 60% standard holes's centers and the proper size for an standard 60% plate?

I just found this today, in case someone needs a plate asap.

However, it does not provide the cut for 60% case's holes.

Swill was active the last time on July 29. I hope he is OK. At his site the only page working is the frontend. Everything seems not working behind it.

It lacks corner rounding, holes for bolts for sixty cases and other nicities that Swill's have.

Your link does not work. At least for me.

That's going to need custom polygons, the 'cut polygon' option is broken but 'add polygon' works.  Looks like you want 'plate corners' on, then add six rounded rectangles above/below but without seeing the whole plate I can't be sure.

roughly like this,sorry for the late reply,been doing some raw sketch for the alst couple days,but i want to make the plate looking like this,i already try to add custom polygons,but its so complicated for me to understand,and i dont want any mounting holes on the plate cause it will be sandwiched between acrlylic case

Hey,
I am in the planning process of building a 40% keyboard with OLED, rotary encoder and underglow.

That is my current draft:
http://www.keyboard-layout-editor.com/##@_name=jr-planck&plate:true&pcb:true%3B&@=Magic1&_x:1%3B&=Magic2&=Magic3&=Magic4%3B&@_a:7%3B&=Tab&=Q&=W&=E&=R&=T&=Y&=U&=I&=O&=P&=Back%20Space%3B&@=Esc&=A&=S&=D&=F&=G&=H&=J&=K&=L&=%2F%3B&='%3B&@=Shift&=Z&=X&=C&=V&=B&=N&=M&=,&=.&=%2F%2F&=Return%3B&@=&=Ctrl&=Alt&=Super&=%2F&dArr%2F%3B&_w:2%3B&=&=%2F&uArr%2F%3B&=%2F&larr%2F%3B&=%2F&darr%2F%3B&=%2F&uarr%2F%3B&=%2F&rarr%2F%3B%3B&@_rx:9.25&ry:1&y:-1&x:-0.25&c=%23000000&t=%23ffffff&f:7&w:2%3B&=OLED

  • How could I add a placeholder for the OLED cutout? How can I set the right dimensions for it? Can I place it at the edge and have no border for it?
  • Is there a way to add some wings for a gasket mounted  plate?
  • Is there a way to handle flex cutouts?

Thanks!

Sorry for the even slower reply!

If you add some measurements and the KLE for your switches I'll have a go, without them I can't.

You would really like 'subtract polygons' to work for 1 and 3, but it doesn't.  The only way to make it would be to build it out of lots of polygons and I'm not sure how that would work as you want switch holes in twobof them.

2 is the same as stotle's?  If sobyou jyst 'add polygons' round the edge.

@stotle.caps, @jrel:

This code:
Code: [Select]
Top and bottom supports:
Add polygon - Custom polygon.
shape: [-x/2-10,-y]; [-10,-y]; [x/2-10,-y]; [-x/2-10,y]; [-10,y]; [x/2-10,y]
path: [0,0]; [5,-5]; [15,-5]; [20,0]; [15,5]; [5,5]

Top and bottom supports holes:
Cut polygon - Circle.
diameter: 3
shape: [-x/2,-y-5]; [0,-y-5]; [x/2,-y-5]; [-x/2,y+5]; [0,y+5]; [x/2,y+5]
circle centers: [0,0]

Lateral supports:
Add polygon - Custom polygon.
shape: [-x,-y/2-10]; [-x,y/2-10]; [x,-y/2-10]; [x,y/2-10]
path: [5,5]; [5,15]; [0,20]; [-5,15]; [-5,5]; [0,0]

Lateral supports holes:
Cut polygon - Circle.
diameter: 3
shape: [-x-5,-y/2]; [-x-5,y/2]; [x+5,-y/2]; [x+5,y/2]
circle centers: [0,0]

Will give you something like this:

It would appear the online tool is still busted when it comes to the cutout. I really hope the author is well and that he is just overwhelmed by life and work.

I also tried to build from source but without luck. Is there a working version of this tool somewhere else? Thanks in advance for your help.
