It's on the download page as a beta (I simply removed the G keys) though it may not be flush with the ends of the keyboard. I made my best guess, but I don't have a K70 so it is just a guess :P

If you end up using it, please tell me if it works or if it needs a revision.

What lighting profile is that at the beginning of the video? Almost looks like a disco themed profile. I tried looking for something like that on the forums and couldnt find anything. Nice mod BTW!

Thanks! The profile you're referencing is actually not a profile-but some third party software created by Elistriel, one of the forum members here. Her audio spectrogrpah program can be found here, and as you can see in the video, lines up very well with music and looks pretty awesome.

I don't have access to laser cutters etc so I'd really like one of these and the fairest way is to put names in a hat, and pull them out 1 by 1. Oh, and sell one to the person who suggested the hat idea, of course

Hi! Currently I have my own template made using Publisher :D but only on alpha. I wanna try your template.

What paper size to use to print this to fit the keyboard? Im using a K70 ang planning to print this in 2 parts since Im using an ordinary print. I already know how to select certain areas for printing.

If you are printing in multiple parts,the paper size doesn't really matter. Thickness - wise, you cannot go any thicker than 1/16th of an inch thick (i don't think this is an issue). Length and width wise... It just has to end up covering the entire keyboard. You should look at my templates, split it into two parts, and use appropriately sized paper for the parts you make.
My templates are available as autoCAD and Adobe illustrator via the Dropbox link in the original post. If you don't have those programs, autoCAD has a free three year academic license. All you need to apply is to be a student with a ".edu" email address. Illustrator has a 30 day free trial you could sign up for as well.

There are probably other programs you could use to look at these things with (solidworks and Google sketchup come to mind) but those are the programs I used to laser cut the keyboard covers.

I managed to figure it out. Needs to select Scale 1:1 choose mm then input 1 and 1 on the plot scale.

Here is the sample printed on photo paper for numpad only.

Nice work! I'm sorry if I misunderstood your original question, it seems like you have figured it out. Looks great! :D
Ps if these are new files and you are willing to share them I'd love to add them to my collection of templates

It sure does make it look different. I kind of wonder if Corsair could experiment using the K90 base plate on the k95... Then the keyboard cover would not be needed at all.

3 hours is a long time :P i spent 5 hours measuring, remeasuring, and creating the template files. Then another 2 hours prototyping, and another 3 to cut out 7 keyboard covers. So 10 hours total to provide everyone with those template files :D

You spend a heck of a lot of time making profiles for everyone. I can't spend that long in CUE, but i can spend that much time with a drill press, can of spray paint, and a laser cutter :D
