2015-09-09 (W) Wrist Mounted Chording Keyboard

An enclosure for the electronics was necessary and the parametric enclosure by ffleurey wouldn't print. Inability to print was likely due to a series of problems with the printer and software rather than ffleurey's model. Another parametric enclosure was modeled for this project but doesn't feature the rounded edges and beveled corners seen in ffleurey's model. Lid mounts were semicircles which printed without the need for supporting material.
