 +Using my [[spiffchorder/​2010-03-leather|desktop leather chorder]] as a starting point,
 +Nhat and I talked about a 3D printable design. ​ Nhat produced several variations of that design.
 +
 +All the designs share a common bottom housing called "​Chorder housing - bottom - common"​
 +
 +  * The bottom does not have a hole or slot for cables. ​ You can add that or drill it after.
 +  * I also suggest gluing a layer of some kind of non-slip surface to the bottom.
 +  * If you are using it in a fixed location, you might want to add some weights (fishing weights or something like that) to give the keyboard a bit more heft.
 +
 +While I am only posting all the drawings, the one I have tried and recommend are "​Chorder housing - top - top down - with suppressor",​ that being Cherry Key Switches snap into the housing from the top (outside) with a recess to hold a layer of mouse pad (or similar materiel) which acts to suppress key click noise.

 +As always, this is a work in progress. ​ Please let me know if you build/use these files. ​ If you send pictures tell me if I can post them and if so, how you would like them attributed. ​
