The brain of the CAT is the BPI-Leaf-S3. The PCBs for the different modules can be ordered from JLCPCB, and other parts can be obtained from AliExpress. If you are not familiar with JLCPCB, the ordering process is explained in the video below. The STL files can be downloaded from Thingiverse.
deselect the LED from placement on the PCB
Nozzle - 0.4 mm
Layer height - 0.2 mm, exception for keys - 0.12 mm
All parts can be printed without support
Infill can be based on your preference for the cat-weight (personally: I go for 5% - Lightning)
For complicated geometry drop the printing speed of the first layer to 50%
Watch before placing the orders !!!
Switch matrix with diodes
Diodes are included in the circuit to prevent 'ghosting' and 'blocking' issues that can occur when multiple keys are pressed simultaneously.
platform -> espressif32
board -> bpi_leaf_s3
framework -> arduino
Future of the project
Here is a list of the next features and improvements.
optimizing the form and design for different hand sizes
web game to accelerate the adaption
