Cherry-to-OEM keycap profile conversion?

more_vert
Hello all! Over the last year or so I've been collecting various keycaps and keycaps sets but I'm having the problem that some of my keycaps are Cherry profile while the rest are OEM profile. I was wondering has anyone found a way to convert the Cherry profile keycaps (which are shorter) to sit at the same height as OEM profile keycaps? I was thinking this could be done with some sort of spacer but I'm not sure how to do that while still preserving translucence for RGB. Input is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Is it usb-c to usb-c?
Yes. And it can drive the HD6XX

What?

Notice the differences in slope. Also note the differences in profile height. A stem for a keycap is only so long. And if you add a spacer to make Cherry sit taller. You'll barely have any keycap stem sitting on the switch stem

I'll do some modelling and run a few test prints to see what I can do, though you're probably right
