Switches

Cherry MX style and compatibles

Footprint Description/notes Preview
MX One-sided mount for any MX-compatible switches. Supports PCB mount switches. MX
MX_reversible Enables any MX-compatible switches to be mounted on either side of the PCB, similar to the switch mounts on the original Ergodox PCBs. Supports PCB mount switches. MX_reversible
Kailh_socket Hot-swappable socket mount for MX-compatible switches using Kailh MX sockets Kailh_socket
Kailh_socket_reversible Enables attaching hot-swappable MX-compatible socket mount on either side of the PCB. Note that the switch will be “upside-down” when mounted on the back side of the PCB, which may interfere with Cherry Profile keycaps. Kailh_socket_reversible
Kailh_socket_optional Enables mounting MX-compatible switches using either through-hole soldering or the hot-swappable mount. Note that the switch will be “upside-down” when mounted in the socket, which may interfere with Cherry Profile keycaps. Kailh_socket_optional
Kailh_socket_optional_reversible Enables mounting MX-compatible switches using either through-hole soldering or the hot-swappable mount, on either side of the PCB. Note that the switch orientation will be reversed depending on which side of the PCB it is mounted on, which may affect aesthetics if the case leaves the switches visible, as well as possible interference with Cherry Profile keycaps. Kailh_socket_optional_reversible

Kailh Low Profile “Choc”

Footprint Description/notes Preview
PG1350 Just a plain one-sided mount for Kailh PG1350 switches PG1350
PG1350_reversible Enables the switch to be mounted on either side of the PCB, similar to the switch mounts on the original Ergodox PCBs PG1350 reversible
PG1350_rotatable Enables the switch to be mounted on either side of the PCB and optionally rotated 90° by the person assembling the board. This option is intended to allow the board assembler to accomodate keycaps that only fit in a particular orientation. PG1350 rotatable
PG1350_socket Hot-swappable socket mount for Kailh Choc PCB Sockets PG1350 socket mount
PG1350_socket_reversible Enables attaching hot-swappable socket mount on either side of the PCB PG1350 reversible socket mount
PG1350_optional-socket Enables switch to be attached with either through-hole soldering or hot-swappable mount PG1350 optional socket mount
PG1350_optional-socket_reversible Enables switch to be attached on either side of the PCB with either through-hole soldering or hot-swappable mount PG1350 optional socket mount, reversible

The plate footprint and outer edge of the switches themselves, as well as the LED mount area, are marked on the layer Eco2.User (note: currently, the plate footprint markings, especially for MX, are meant to show the overall dimensions of the cutout, not to be detailed enough to cut a plate from)
