SPIN Macro Pad Kit

What is it?

The SPIN Macro Pad is an external keypad that is made to help with workflows where you want analog control, such as photo or video editing, or for those who just want to mess with encoders!

This is my first big project and it was heavily inspired by both u/hsgwchan‘s Plaid and u/The_Royal’s RoMac. I wanted to make the encoders a key part of the design, and highlight the surface mount components that typically end up hidden.

If you would like a case for this kit, head on over to P3D Store who is producing some!

There is also a great 3D printable case here by community member Extra Fox!
