Cheers Neo and jixr, I was under the impression that a single led capable of multiple colours would be used, which is how I imagined the keycool 87II which has blue/white selectable (yeah only 2 colours) , I know from past experience single LED bulbs have been able to do orange red and green but that was a long time ago.

after a search I did find these available, and considering how diodes are added to cherry switches, this shouldn't be too difficult

sorry for the alibaba link smile.gif

also sorry for not noticing the previous conversation, I have tried to read as much of this thread as possible.... redface.gif

No, by all means re-ask it, I was just struggling to find my answer that's all. tongue.gif

Better to ask the question than buy a set of keycaps and then realise the spacebar won't fit. thumb.gif

EDIT: On the Quick Fire TK it appears that the bottom row is non-standard, in fact from what I can tell, identical to that of the BWU.

It seems rather hard to install LEDs with a diameter of 1cm (10mm = 0.4inches) right next to a cherry switch, so they are more than three times as large as the ones used today.
I don't know about you, but 1cm is only slightly less than the width/height of my keycaps.

We'd need at least 5mm LEDs for me to think it's doable, and if they were 3mm (this is what we use now) we'd only need something to control it.
Size to size comparison: (left to right: 10mm, 5mm, 3mm)

Just found this it's 5mm
Besides we do have SMT although I don't care to look up the size

Apparently if you specificaly google "3mm RGB LED" you will get some results.
post #16066 of 36808
ah yes Latrakx, I did think that the cheap ones were a bit large for switch fitting, but hopefully something comes out in the near future.
I want to be able to go Beige! smile.gif

those types of leds have 4 wires, and the cherry switches themself only have 2 holes, so you would have to figure a way around that. ( as well as designing the controller, etc )

Not to forget how many pins we'd need on the controller to control each LED individually redface.gif
About the two holes on the switch it'self: why not just 'mod' it so that we have a large gap rather than individual holes. (I'm beginning to realize that I might be seeing this to much from a modding-perspective rather than for a commercial company tongue.gif but couldn't they just ask Cherry to produce specialized switches for them?

I suppose they could just get custom housings made, but that in itself would be a very demanding and expensive. It would be nice, but I don't see it happening any time soon. I'd rather have companies producing higher quality keycaps than backlit boards. ( unless it was a super awesome front legend'd led board.

I replaced the WASD cluster with new keys, but they're stikking out a bit. They are the same size though, how can I get them down more?
