CPC 464 Keyboard Problem
« on: 00:53, 06 June 21 »
my cpc 464 keypad is gone. only the plastic parts are missing. so it mean is keycaps. Since my cpc 464 computer is the old logo cpc 464, when I press the models that I have added the link below, these buttons fit. but the custom buttons are not modeled. What would you recommend for custom buttons? big keys as it is old case cpc 464.

another problem I have is with cpc 6128. I'm missing a key on my english version cpc 6128 keyboard. this key is straight ones. but I couldn't find a 3d model of the key for the english cpc 6128 anywhere.
What can i do?

Keycaps for my amstrad cpc 464 form 3d printer... but was there a spring in between key and plugger?
3 years ago I put the keypad in hot water to clean it. all broken and warped. I'm printing them now. flat keys have 3d model but no different sizes. Was there a spring between the plugger and the key? but at least if i make it i'll have a brandnew keycaps

I don't think anyone has any idea about it. I will also share this project step by step. also I will share details at my blog.

ordinary keys are produced. but special keys pose a big problem. There are no 3d models of special keys. here too i will find a handmade solution. I hope I can.
