Han60v2
A 60% by Han Boards


The link above is a living document for the Han60v2. Please check this out because I spent a lot of time on it as it is the best resource for everything to know about this keyboard.




Externals
The design language of the Han60v2 involves the utilization of chamfers and bevels as opposed to fillets and sweeps.
Everything is designed around keeping things as angular as possible while still having an interesting profile.

Material (case):                                                                                           Sandblasted 6063 Aluminum

EKH:                                                                                                                                        27mm
Plate Options:                                                                             Plateless, Aluminum, PC, Carbon Fiber
Colors:                                                                                                    Silver, Purple, Red, Rose Gold

Internals
The Han60v2 utilizes a plateless mounting style with deep bottom gaskets for improved compression.
Multiple layouts, several optional foams, and other optional modifications allow the user to tune the board as they see fit.

Love the spellbook photo!!

price looks OK to me. i'd say go no foam and drop the price a few bucks if the option is there. i don't think a lot of folks will build with foam, but i could be wrong

I like the angular design choice. Seems like a lot of boards focus on curves now so this stands out to me. Good pricing too. Best of luck with this IC!

Thank you !! Spellbook is an awesome set  ;)
I added foam config as an option on the IC so I'll see how people would prefer it. I personally don't use any foams in my build, but wanted to leave it open for as much customization as possible.

Thanks !! Daal is a sick board  :)
And good eye - that's the front height, but I'll update it to the EKH measurement when I get home tonight!

Sure!



The bottom case has some slots that allow some silicone bumpers (included) to rest in. This sits slightly above the lip of the bottom case and makes direct contact with the top case when assembled together having the same effect as a "force break" mod (minimizing the reverberation in the case)

It's entirely optional but does a good job of eliminating any ping or hollowness!

It will really come down to the amount of interest! If there is a high enough MOQ, we may be able to offer HHKB but will need to gauge based on this first IC!

Another case similar to the foams - the aluminum and FR4 plates don't really add too much to the cost, so I thought giving people more options to build would be a good idea whereas if people wanted to try something like CF, it'll add slightly. Maybe "PCB-mount" is more aptly named than plateless.

are the blockers here going to stay like this?

So the blockers were changed from the silver (rev1 prototype) to the purple (rev2 prototype) to have a chamfer all the way around and also fixed the width between keys. Or are you referring to something else?

Interested in a silver or maybe red one.
Is it going to be bright red or can it be more burgundy as well?

I'll have a red prototype soon, I don't imagine it'll be burgundy, but it should be closer to a matte finish than the render! I will update with pictures when I receive.

Might just be the lens or something but on that picture it looks like the blockers are shifted to one direction.
Example the right blocker. On that pic it looks as if its shifted to the right. The gap on the left is bigger than the one on the right.

Ah gotcha! I think it may just be the angle:

Currently, I'm analyzing the responses on the IC! If there's not too much that needs to be changed, I'll send out to content creators after the IC period and then go into GB shortly after that. I'll keep the timeline up-to-date on the Notion page as well as my Discord!

The mounting style is plateless - each kit will come with a plate if users want to use a hotswap PCB!

Hi all,

Red prototype is in! I added the pictures to the GH post. Also, Keyspresso and Keygem will be serving as vendors for the CA/EU regions.

Excited for this project moving forward! Stay tuned...  :cool:
