What this service is

I will design a bespoke keyboard case for you. I have experience working in 3D CAD and can make your designs happen. I offer a fair priced service to help people get their projects going.

My services provide you with:

  • Bespoke from scratch case design
  • CAD files for case parts and plates you can give to a factory
  • Technical Drawings for the parts
  • After service including small modification or design changes.

They do not provide:

  • Production / Assembly of any kind
  • Dealing with factories
  • QC of the produced parts

What you must provide:

  • A keyboard layout
  • A solid idea – It’s okay if you want to discuss things with me and brainstorm ideas, but please have a good idea what you want. Pictures are always helpful.
  • Good expectations – Materials and machinery have limitations. Metal walls can only be so thin, corners can only be so sharp, etc.
  • Understanding of what you’re getting into. My service provides you files that you can pass on to a factory to produce the design. Small batch production is not cheap.

Examples of previous commissioned designs


  • Case Designs

    Case designs start at this price. Price can increase if the design is complex. You are welcome to contact me for specifics about prices for the design you have in mind.

    $300 / €250

  • Modification

    If you already have a design and want it updated or changed, I can take a look. Prices depend on complexity.

    Please note: You must have the CAD files available for your design. I cannot modify certain file types like obj or stl.

    From: $75/ €60

How it works

  1. You contact me with your idea and we talk details. We agree on a price for the work needed.
  2. I create an invoice on Paypal which you pay 50% up front and 50% when the job is complete
  3. We work together on your board and I give you updates along the way.
  4. I present you a final design for inspection and if happy you pay the last 50% and I deliver the files

You can check my previous design here. It includes a download that you can inspect.

In the past I have done PCB designs, but it’s not my primary focus. There are a lot of people who do PCB designers cheaper and quicker than me.

With the case design I always include where the USB port will be and make an outline of a PCB. The outline of the PCB and alignment info can be passed onto a PCB designer who can use it to make sure everything will fit together.

If you want to use a pre-made daughterboard such as Unified-Daughterboard I can include that in the case design without problems.

With respect to other designers I will not straight rip off people’s designs for you. If you have an idea based on a design that’s another story.

Prices are set after careful consideration. I first of all want to make it worth my while to work on designs. I put time, effort and free time into each design. But I also want to help people get their designs going so they can make their keyboards come to life.

Bespoke designs are normally around 10 times what I charge, so I feel the price is fairly decent.

The prices are also set in a way that will attract serious offers.

For starters, I have 52 confirmed trades on Mechmarket. I’ve sold some very expensive things there and always made sure the deal went great.

The other thing is I will always have you pay my through Paypal Goods and Services. It means you have the right to dispute the transaction if something goes wrong.

Yes, but I may decline. Often this task is not easy because you need exact measurements. You can scan the plate and send it to me, but this is a really long and time consuming process. I may decline because I’m too busy or don’t think the result will be accurate.

Yes, in general I’m happy to correct things or make small changes. A small change might be adjusting the height of the board or moving a hole, etc. I reserve the right to not provide this service if you are spamming or abusing this. I’ll take it on a case by case basis.

I draw the line at a major change like going from 60% to 65%. In this case I would ask for an additional fee.
