I am new here and was looking for someone who can help me with the question that I have. I am working on a small project and I need dimensions for keybord keycaps for it. I found this post (picture bellow) and the dimensions are labeled very good , but with one issue, what is the side angel ? Maybe some one here knows or can provide me with better link ?
If you mean the height of each keycap, that varies considerably depending on the profile and in many cases, the row of the keyboard (if it’s a sculpted keycap profile). This Keyboard University page is a good place to start to learn the terminology and keycaps.info will allow you to compare the various keycap profiles to narrow down what you’re looking to do.
I think I might explained poorly what I am looking for. For example in the picture that I provided the dimensions of the OEM / Cherry keycaps are measured to in term of height on both side (as they are sculpted) and the base is measured (which is I believe always the same no meter the profile). But in order to model them correctly I would need to to the angle of the side profiles. And I cant find that info anywhere.
Thanks for clarifying. I thought you were looking for height (the image you uploaded is barely visible on dark mode and I didn’t see some of the details; opened it in a new tab just now).
I’ve just spent 20 minutes googling and I can’t find any schematics covering all of the angles/slope on the profiles you’re after. Found one for R3 in this reddit thread from 2016, but not sure how helpful or accurate this is:
