Blank Keycap (R3, 1x1)
ataiello @RaVNzCRoFT thanks for the response, I appreciate it. It looks like shapeways steel printers are a couple microns too inacurate. I will continue trying to pick out the residue and filling the inside of the stem to try and get it to fit without filing the notch. It's pretty difficult to file the inside of the stem when it's like a millimeter wide though.
ataiello Upon closer inspection, it appears that the inside of the key cap is very roughly finished and that is what is preventing it from going onto the keyboard. This is really upsetting because I payed a lot of money for the 4 steel key caps that I got. I have tried my best to pick the residue out and file the inside of the cap around the notch, but the cap still does not fit. I would greatly appreciate a fast response from the manufacturer.
ataiello Bought this in Stainless Steel and tried it, but it didn't fit onto the key switch. I'm going to try my best to file down the inside because I can't think of anything else. Anyone else have this problem or a solution?
