    Well the last miles are the hardest, only need to design two more PCB's, 3d print one button and order + bend the acrylic for the sides (it is going to be slightly translucent red).

    Hahaha nooooo I did not, I still want to but in hindsight I wish I'd been less ambitious. The compact form factor was super time-consuming and hard to work with but custom building the those FX button caps was really tremendously stupid, most realistic way right now would be 3d printing a "mold" and pouring them from silicone. A ton of work.

    I lost all code, PCB, laser-cut and 3d files.

    The only thing that happened after that post is I ended up 3d printing the "enclosure" (the sides).

    Edit: I've recovered some of the files, it's not much but I'll be keeping them here

    I did use Eagle, since it's owned by Autodesk right now I probably wouldn't choose it again but I still use it and it works well. I used Dirty PCB's. It was definitely the best choice at the time but now PCBWay and JLCPCB might be a better pick now(but Dirty PCB's is still great).

    Great build! Well done Sir!

    I've also struggled finding decent buttons and led pipes / light guides for my builds. Am planning on trying to create silicone pads from silicone rubber (https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B01M0ZD6OD/) and conductive rubber pads (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32900992831.html). Maybe those would feel nice and work well.
