3D Printing and Cross Stitch Meet in a Creative Keycap

3D Printing & Imaging Art & Sculpture Craft & Design Digital Fabrication

The marriage of traditional crafts and new technologies is always a source of inspiration. The creative melding of old and new, can truly be inspirational. Billie Ruben as come up with a surprisingly simple project that pulls off a new and interesting combination, cross stitch for your keyboard.

The keycaps can be 3d printed on a resin printer, then act as a blank slate for whatever pattern you want to stitch into place.


I have to imagine that the feeling of the cross stitch on your finger tip is pleasant and I’m really curious to hear what mechanical keyboard enthusiasts think about the sensation.

I get ridiculously excited seeing people make things. I just want to revel in the creativity I see in makers. My favorite thing in the world is sharing a maker's story. You can find me on twitter at @calebkraft and on youtube
