It seems hard to find a full keycap set stl/obj...etc file to print.
Most keycap sets can be found is artisan caps.
And many link are no more available.
The only complete set on git has no stem setting for printing.
And no round on the corner, which is not reasonable.
Can only use for rendering pics.

I decide to make it myself and share with the community.
By creating a git project on github to prevent failed link in the future.

Here's some pics : http://imgur.com/a/mRq2k
And this is git project : https://github.com/sennin32/DLSS-keycap
I am working on this for couple days.
Not yet finished all keys, only 1u caps now.

Space bar has basic look now.
But I haven't finished cause the length problem.
I have to do more confirmation later.

I'm not sure stem size either, I found 2 sizes, but not sure which one is better, only around 0.1 mm difference between 2 sizes.

I'm not profession on 3D modeling, just learned some while my master degree in industrial design.
Students for Master degree was not asked for many product design project in my University.
So, I'm not very good at it  :))

Please leave some comment if this set has any issue.
Enjoy it.

I'm pretty sure it's something new based on the title.

Think of it like sculpted DSA
People in the 1980s, in general, were clearly just better than we are now in every measurable way.

The dumber the reason the more it must be done

I imagined that, but I also consider the possibility for the guy to be making the draws of a pre-existing profile.
I don't like to assume more than I actually know.

Anyway, it seems like it has a deeper shape than DSA, considering the draw that seems to be row 3. I like that.
