3D Designing a Butterfly in OpenSCAD

Mostly 3D.

I’m just building more complex keyboards. This one will flap from side to side like a butterfly! A BUTTERFLY.

I guess.

I had an idea for a grid-layout keyboard with an adjustable and removable hinge like the IBM M15, so you can adjust the angle and placement of both sides of keys so you’re not tweaking your wrists, slowly degrading their ability to exist painlessly.
