Bluetooth Sweep 2 + MBK Legend Keycaps

What is sweep?

Sweep is a version of the more fabulous Ferris by Pierre Chevalier that uses a daughter board like a promicro, elite-c, bit-c, nice!nano etc. instead of using onboard components.

What are the different types?

⭐ Sweep 2 - Recommended Choc v1 board with all the features.
⭕ Sweep Half Swept - Same as Sweep 2, but with a reversible pro-micro footprint.
⭕ Sweep Bling MX - An MX only Sweep that features Kailh's hotswap sockets and a stacked case.
⭕ Sweep Bling LP - A Choc v1 only Sweep that features Kailh's hotswap sockets.
⭕ Sweep High - Same as the Sweep 2, but trades choc spacing for compatibility with more switches and keycaps.
⭕ Sweep High M - A soldered MX only Sweep, with a reversible PCB design.
⭕ Sweep Mini - The only version that supports Choc minis.

Note: All versions support bluetooth with Nice!Nano

[1] An on/off switch is recommended for bluetooth builds.
[2] With a reversible PCB it's easier to make mistakes during assembly, but it allows you to purchase less boards.
[3] Choc spaced boards have the switches in a tighter grid. This provides a better final look but is only compatible with some choc keycaps. (e.g. MBK)
[4] Supports splitkb's tenting puck.
[5] MX + kailh hotswap ONLY. Alps are NOT supported.

How do I make this thing?


The firmware can be found with the Ferris firmware as part of QMK.

Firmware for zmk and bluemicro_ble is called "Cradio".
