New 3D Printed Sinclair QL Keyboard Dust Cover/Cap

Post by TomDD »

I've created a simple keyboard cap/cover for the Sinclair QL to keep the dust out of the keys. The cover fits snug on top of the keys only and not the whole machine as that is way too large for any normal or even large FDM printer, so I think this is a good compromise.

The design has to be printed in two parts so to minimise the visibility of the join I've added a design on the top which is basically the outline of the keyboard it is covering. All the details are on Printables https://www.printables.com/model/938006 ... t-covercap

I've also tried printing in colour

Hi Derek,

That looks great.
Just a thought could you reproduce a cut down size keyboard for a
QL Futura as Sir Clive planned.
