Thanks for the PDF! I'll be posting it on the Dropbox for this project sometime tomorrow (getting a house lined up for next school year). Now everyone with a PDF viewer can use the template files - all thanks to you :D
EDIT: the PDF is now posted and I have thanked you in the Readme file

Default K95 pdf

Hey guys, could somebody please upload a PDF file for the K95. I'm planning on printing it on paper and I don't have Adobe Illustrator. Thanks!

If nobody else gets to it by the end of my work day tomorrow I can try to see if i can do it. AutoCAD can print stuff to PDF. I need to find out how to specify printing units though. I believe autocad defaults to inches, not millimeters.

2 mm might be pushing it. I used 1/16th inch which is 1.59 mm and I would consider that the limit before you start interfering with the keycaps.
Also, I've not tested any other plastics. That will be entirely your choice

i mod my k70 rgb with Mika Plastic .... first it's look Luxury with reflection like Sony Z
But typing sound not attractive because cheap sound (Plastic hit Plastic) not like origin (Plastic hit metal)


With light and sun


No light and low sun

Im loving the pictures! Just to clarify, did you use 2mm thick plastic? If you use 1/16" the keycaps do not hit the plastic. Also, the original sound coming from your K70 is from bottoming out the switch. The keycaps on an unmodified K70 never bottom out on the brushed aluminum plate. I think the plastic you used may have been a little too thick, but the way to fix that would be to install transparent O-ring dampeners to decrease the travel distance (and prevent you from bottoming out)

I use 1.7mm thick plastic... well i have to say it's still thick. i will try with different material but in my country it's very difficult to find the material that's can use with Laser cutter. Do you have any Advise for me ?

I probably already commented on this, can't recall, but if I haven't.

This needs to be manufactured by Corsair and offered as an alternative background plate thingy... The color spill in between the keys, espacially the gaps in the F keys is gorgeous.

Great work! Super Jelly! ;)

Any plastic similar to credit card plastic will perform well. For laser cutting, you need to make sure the plastic does NOT have any PVC in it, or it will release toxic gasses. If you are getting a company to do the laser cutting for you, you should ask them what type of plastics they cut. They will have a list. :)

Thanks for appreciating my work! I would be flattered if Corsair (or anybody) wanted to manufacture these. I don't have the money to mass produce these - that's why I made the project open source. Anybody can use these files as they are :)
