The Ploopy Nano BTU mod is about as curved as I can manage to make it right now. I think this will do for a first version!
Printed the Ploopy Nano #trackball BTU mod I designed. Now I just need to wait for the BTUs to go in it. I don't actually have the PCB or a 38mm ball that fits it, but I need to do as much mechanical checking as I can.
The Ploopy Nano BTU mod seems to fit alright! This ball is a little too large for it, but it gets the idea across.
If you have a Ploopy Nano and would like to try the mod, there's more info available at https://github.com/gbrnt/ploopy-nano/tree/master/hardware/mechanicals-btu-mod
@gbrnt Ahh! Interesting... I didn't search for it, but I just kept thinking it was a trackball... because it looks like a trackball. 😜
@fortifieduniverse Yeah it's a tiny buttonless one to use with mouse button keys on your keyboard. I don't have one but it's pretty neat
@gbrnt Yeah, it looks pretty neat! I've never been a trackball person, but something small like that makes me want to give one a try.
@ekaitz_zarraga Nope, it's a minimal trackball designed by Ploopy for using with mouse buttons on your keyboard
@ekaitz_zarraga Nah, it's not my trackball design to sell. I just modded the existing design to use the new bearings
@gbrnt I would totally buy it if it comes with the electronics pre-programmed.
I'm getting lazy these days.
