Just happened to stumble on this today and am really excited to see other people working on minivan plates!
Just last night I threw together this plate for my minivan (standard layout) and 3d printed it. Overall pretty happy with how the print turned out and will probably be desoldering/rebuilding my minivan today with it.
Definitely want to say thanks to @evangs and TheVan for providing the plate files to help with mounting holes (measuring with calipers would have been quite tricky) and also help validate switch positioning before starting a multi hour print.
Total plate thickness is 4.5mm (I could have done 4.7 based on my measurements but didn’t want to push it) and printed in Filamentium noble blue PLA
After numerous test prints/fits I’m happy with the results and expect that I will not be disappointed once I put this on my board. Switches have been tested and fit very snuggly while still having the ability to be opened up, and the housings around the stabilizers cover up as much as possible without interfering with them (tested both with screw in and snap in stabilizers). Really excited to eventually get some in-switch indicator LEDs on this and see how they look against the plate.
The only real issue I’ve run in to so far is that I have trouble with Gateron switches properly snapping in to the plate. This problem does not occur with any of the kailh or cherry switches I have lying around but all gaterons I have seem to do this. Does anybody have any recommendations on how to handle this? Since I’m printing these plates the imperfections between layers kind of makes up for it and will hold the switches in place but I would definitely not consider this optimal.
