Today I completed the first prototype for the case.Capture

The case has 2 holes located on the bottom section of the case cover that will align with the ones created on the bottom cover. The case dimensions are 120x65mm on the top portion and 100x45mm on the bottom portion. 4 holes are used in this concept design, which will hold 4 14x14mm gateron clear switches. Capture

The case when put together is 40mm in height and 120mmx65mm in length/width.

This design should be able to house the arduino teensy and the gateron switches with enough room for the 18x18mm keycaps.

Problems and planning:

Currently the one thing I will definitely need to improve with the design is making the case more stable. I plan to accomplish this using 4 screw holes located on the corners of the case. For this to happen I must do more research with inventor in order to create the serrated screw holes.
