Unusual ergonomic keyboard with analog joystick

Unusual ergonomic keyboard with analog joystick  Unusual ergonomic keyboard with analog joystick Unusual ergonomic keyboard with analog joystick  Unusual ergonomic keyboard with analog joystick The background of the manufacture of this keyboard is as follows.
With intensive use of the PC, the master began to feel discomfort in his left hand due to the uncomfortable position of the keyboard. After searching the Internet for an alternative to a regular keyboard, he came across an advertisement for the Azeron keyboard. Having familiarized himself with this keyboard, its operation and control, he realized that this was exactly what he needed – a programmable, ergonomic keyboard with an analog joystick printed on a 3D printer.
The problem is that the cost of such a keyboard is about 200 euros, including shipping. Then the master decided to make such a device on his own.
The master product is 100% compatible with the software of the original device and fully compatible with PCs and consoles. Ideal for games like Warzone, Fortnite, World of Warcraft, as well as graphics and 3D modeling software. Here you can easily memorize macros, reassign keys, calibrate the analog joystick and much more offered by Azeron software.
Tools and materials: – A set of countersunk screws; – A set of round head screws; – Threaded inserts; – Square nuts DIN562 M3X5.5X2; – Protective sheath made of PET 1 meter x 5 mm; – A set of silicone feet K1204 (Ø 12 mm); – Heat-shrinkable tube; -Teensy 2.0+ AVR USB ISP module; -Modular joystick XY kY-023; -Microswitches Omron D2F-01, OR, D2FC-01; D2FC-F-7N. 18 pcs; – Two-position self-locking switch; – Multidirectional switch; -5 terminal blocks 10pin 2.54 mm/0.1; -2 color LEDs with a diameter of 5 mm; -2 220 Ohm resistors; -3d printer; -Soldering iron; -Thermal gun; -Nail file; -Nippers; -Screwdriver; -Drills for metal from 1 mm to 3 mm; -Engraver; Step one: 3D-printing

Now you need to prepare the development board.
First, you need to install the terminal blocks on the board and solder the contacts.
First, the master cuts off two rectangles from the circuit board. Marks and drills holes in them, focusing on the legs of the terminal blocks. Sets pads in holes.

Before assembling the wrist rest, you need to connect the keyboard to the USB connector on the PC and check if the electronics are working.
Then plastic spacers are glued to the part.
 Unusual ergonomic keyboard with analog joystick Unusual ergonomic keyboard with analog joystick Unusual ergonomic keyboard with analog joystick Threaded spacers are installed in them.
Unusual ergonomic keyboard with analog joystick  Unusual ergonomic keyboard with analog joystick Now you need to assemble the part.
Unusual ergonomic keyboard with an analog joystick Unusual ergonomic keyboard with analog joystick Unusual ergonomic keyboard with analog joystick Unusual ergonomic keyboard with analog joystick Unusual ergonomic keyboard with analog joystick Step thirteen: software
The keyboard works correctly with all the latest software and firmware versions: Software v0.22.0 – Firmware v57.
You can download the above files or download the latest updates from the “Download” section of Azeron.eu.
To install the firmware, you need to download the Teensy Loader Program software (usually supplied with the firmware).
To install the firmware, you need to download the Teensy Loader Program. Teensy;
Import the file azeron-fw-56.hex (or later) into the bootloader;
Set the programming mode by pressing RESET on the Teensy 2.0 ++ board;
Next press Program and then Restart
Close the bootloader and disconnect the keyboard.
Reconnect the keyboard.
For more information, read the Azeron manual.
