Handwired w/ 3d hotswappable 3by2 Macro Pad


I’m going to build a 6 key macro pad. This is basically a mini keyboard. Super excited for this build because it’s my first project with hardware other than my PC. I’ve also wanted to build a keyboard from scratch and this is very similar, but managable.


I’m going to build this using this guide. It does not require soldering and uses hand wiring to achieve the process.
