Who else likes to make keycap mock-ups for fun?


#1

I find myself sitting and making keycaps mock-ups whenever I’m bored, I can’t be the only one doing this? :slight_smile:

Easy and fun way to pass time while waiting or being bored, for example inbetween queues for a game! :slight_smile:

You can use the following websites:

and then render here: https://kle-render.herokuapp.com/

I did do a few with some innocent dreams of them becoming group buys, but never had the time :joy: Maybe this thread can be where vendors and professionals can come look at ‘amateurs’ and collaborate :joy:


Called this one Archer

Called this one Deathstroke

Called this one mythic

Should I ever make a set I really like, I might consider doing an interest check. However, I’ve no idea how idea comes to reality, and I have no contacts - so it’ll likely just stay a fun way to pass time. :slight_smile:

I like this shit! Perhaps you should opt for different font color, since white and orange don’t go so well. But yeah, nice overall.


#5

cheers :slight_smile:
I swore I had it as blue like below though, more true to silve age. Might have been an older version

tbf not sure now if white or blue looks better

:raising_hand_man: but I’m not ready to share yet…


#7

How about two different font colors? :slight_smile:


#8

Would work. but for practicality if it does go into production, would cost a lot more :stuck_out_tongue:


#9

I do!


#10

Dem proper renders lol :joy: the closest I’ve got to that was using some Blender plugin


#11

Stepping up the game! :smiley:


#12

Similar one to my first, I kind of like these muted colors.


#13

This needs to be on the maroon CA66


#14

I made this when I thought DSA Plague was going to happen to visualize my plans. :sob::sob::sob::sob::sob:

hey nice :smile: did you do the svg yourself for the novelties?


#18

The hard thing about designing keycaps is that you need to keep the medium in mind. For example, you render doesn’t take full advantage of either method, It wouldn’t be a good Dye-sub colorway because you have the light legend on Enter, and I think the set isn’t too exciting for something that is doubleshot because so much of it could be dyesub.


#19

That’s good feedback, I did not keep that in mind at all. I’ll give it a new go!

I’ve been working on a board and keyset. Maxxkey Raptor. Novelties to come. Layout fits in a 75% case, but I really want to do a split board. Feedback welcome.
