I don't know of a way to scan something for 3d modelling but you could just take the necessary measurements and model it. As it's probably a simple piece, it would not take too long

 

Going to take a look at some tutorials tonight and lets see how I get on. I might end up just chiseling it if it is too difficult...

It's a skill worth learning ! :P Plus it's pretty fun. If you're looking for a software to do it, I'd suggest Solidworks. The gui is intuitive and easy to pick up + it's compatible with Topsolid for your CAM

Hey guys can you tell me the pros and cons of these keyboards? Without considering price

1. Blackwidow ultimate 2013

2. Blackwidow ultimate 2014

3. Blackwidow ultimate stealth 2014

4. Corsair k70 brown switches,red led and non rgb

5. Corsair k96 red switches, white led and non rgb

 

1. Pro: Uses Cherry switches so tried and tested; Con: Plasticky/not as good build quality and not really worth the price (I know you said to not mention price, but for what you're getting they're overpriced. There are other keyboards in the Razer price range that are better built)

2. Pro: Rzaer ermahgerd; Con: as above + Kailh switches which can be of lower quality

3. Pro: Doesn't click so isn't as loud if you like that sort of thing; Con: as above + doesn't click (which you might want in a keyboard)

4. Pro: Solid construction, Cherry switches; Con: Price (that's about it really) oh and it doesn't click

5. Pro: as above, also is linear if you like that sort of thing; Con: Price and is linear rather than tactile if you don't like that sort of thing

 

Basically Corsair products have higher build quality and are guaranteed to use Cherry switches. Razer products are built less well and the same price as Corsair stuff.

Very nice idea! I love mech keyboards like pretty much everyone else on this forum at this point. I have a G710+ with browns and a Corsair K70 with reds both of which im pretty happy with. I might be buying my friends older Razer Blackwidow with blues shortly which makies me EXTREMELY happy as blues are hands down my favorite switch for both typing and gaming :)

I right now have a Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2014, but getting a Corsair K70 RGB soon :) I really love mechanical keyboards, like everyone else here, and I thought I'd just say that, I don't really know what else to say to get in this forum... the post is huge.

CM Storm Quickfire Rapids with Cherry MX Blues (2012) were my first mechanical keyboard, still holding strong even today,

 

Corsair K65 RGB is my current desk choice.

Just put some Rosewill o-rings on my k70 with browns.

Didn't like them too much, so I left them only on the textured wasd keys for gaming.

 

Looks gorgeous naked though :P

Almost ordered pikachu and pokeball keys, but I'm reading some people have problems with them being loose :/

That's due to the aluminum. They can't mold them to the same precision as you can with plastics.

Ducky Shine DK-9008S The shine 3 TKL.

But the white LEDs are a pain to find with that combination.

heelp! i just got my ducky shine slim with white backlit, but the white is kind of freaking out my eyes a bit! :D before i had the k70 vengence red backlit and it was all just fine... is this just me or is ducky's white backlit super intense??

 

edit: i cant tell if the brightness is the issue here or the colour white...even on the lowest brightness it is kind of annoying to look at while typing :/ on the highest level it is just more obvious to me.. damn i think i need to return it :/ it also catches my eyes in peripheral vision when i look at my monitor.. wow.

Not backlit, there Code v2 series is white, but their tkl only has Greens, Clears, and Blues... The full ones with the numpad come with Greens or Clears depending on which you prefer.

I have just bought a CM storm Rapid-I with white LED's and Brown switches just recently! ( I am also now trying to get a wood top case made for it! )

Feels very similar to blues but without the loud click!

aHH I was really tempted. But I vowed to myself the next keyboard I buy will be Cherry Blues xD

Spent all day cleaning and putting O-rings into both my keyboards. Feels like waste for my Ducky with Blues, but the Filco is so much quieter. Just got to get used to the more "mushy" feeling when I bottom out. 


What do they know of England, who only England know?

Well don't look at it whilst typing then! :P

 

On a more serious note, I doubt you'll find white LEDs without them being really intense. Just the way it goes

Well I tried a few places and everything cost a fortune... So I just bought a Vortex Aluminium case for it instead... :D

There is a place near where I live who do 3D scans, so I might take the aluminium case there, get a 3D scan and then have it routed out of wood in the future.

I hope that is not the case with the cm storm tkl I ordered, because when im at macbook the white backlit even on max does not irritate me whatsoever.
