Title: Keycap mold question
Post by: toshhacks on Mon, 27 April 2020, 15:21:45
Hey everyone, I was wondering where I can buy a mold or a finished insert. something like this. https://imgur.com/a/EVdLKMk I know of $ynth but it seems like they are sold out. I make sterling silver jewelry and I want to put resin fittings on the inside of the metal keycaps. Ive tried printing them but printed keycaps are too brittle to last a long time so I want to cast it in resin. I'm fairly new to this so any help in direction would be appreciated!

You could try 3D printing a keycap and create a mold from that. The mold may not be as strong as a $ynth, but should be durable enough.
