MiniBaen is opensource - https://github.com/rainkeebs/minibaen-r2

It works by smooshing the keys closer to each other a tiny bit - some especially thick / wide keycaps may be a very tight fit.

Thank you!! Could you pretend I'm an idiot and explain how one might go about turning those files into a physical PCB (or point me in the direction of where one might find that information)? Thanks!
