I like this idea. If you could add text to the key caps it would be perfect. "House", "side door", "mom's house" that would improve it.

I was already thinking this would be a good improvement. I am already working on a model, but i have to test print it, to make sure it will come out nicely:)

Thank you. I was looking at the code and was going to try and add that feature but I don't think I have the time. You might not be able to add a lot of text.
Funny thing is after viewing this project, while I was looking for something else I found a couple of those key caps.

I have updated the model to contain the text. You can make the text stand out (by using positive textdepth) or be inset into the wall (by using negative textdepth). I was sadly not been able to test print the design with the text as I do not have access to the printer during the holidays. Hopefully it works :)

Very nice, I like how the text can be raised or lowered. Very good. (I have limited access to printer as well)

Thank you for doing this.

Very Good Idea
I will also use this as
" WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor)"
