About open-source mechanical keyboard

Hello everyone, I am a newbie mechanical keyboard enthusiast and would like to ask which open-source mechanical keyboard PCB files are more suitable for newbies who are interested in DIY mechanical keyboard programs.

Hey Annie,
Welcome to the forums!

While we dont specialise in mechanical keyboards (though we do have some components that can be useful for them), I did find a great directory for a range of Mech Keyboards that could be useful for you and it seems that a lot of them have the necessary Gerber files that can aid you in getting one made.
Check it out and see if it is helpful for your next project!

Elecrow is currently doing a campaign on DIY mechanical keyboards, and they have also released an open source keyboard PCB file designed by Elecrow’s engineers. I think it would be a good reference for newbies.


Search github. There are plenty there like the discipline and bakeneko.
