Laser engravable backlit keycaps?
« on: Tue, 26 March 2019, 14:03:18 »
Hi everyone,

Does anyone know of a vendor that sells blank doubleshot keycaps for cherry mx style switches? Novelkeys has some for the kailh choc low profile switches, but I cannot find anywhere that sells something similar for mx mounts. I'm not super picky about the profile or even the materials... I just want something like in the picture but that is mx mount compatible.



I'd like to laser engrave my own because my options seem to be very limited for backlit keycaps. For example, I recently built a split rgb ortho board that has entirely 1u caps. I'd love to be able to laser engrave a set for that board that fits well, has my own fonts, and has some layers displayed on the keycaps for reference. Maxkeys does custom backlit keys as one-ofs but to do an entire set would be pretty pricey.

The kubic kaps do look like a cool option. I was also thinking about finding some translucent top keycaps and printing on them like in this post: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=96010.0
