Great choice. Love the change and appreciate the passion behind the project.

Love the updated engraving! Excited to see next iteration.


Liking the new engraving, excited to see how this next prototype turns out



I Appreciate all the kind words and support. Project is still moving, waiting for the next prototype - I placed the order for it a while back. This is going to be a big step, it includes some significant internal changes.

On another note, I've made a lot of progress securing vendors for the project and am looking forward to confirming soon. Hopefully this will come with other big updates, such as format, unit count, pricing, etc.

I am an ISO 65% user at heart, but there is something about an F13 WKL ANSI TKL that is just so damn... symmetrical.

It's beautiful.

EDIT: Discord invite doesn't work for me, could someone ping me a link?

Can't stop looking at the inner engraving. I feel like I am sitting at windows side admiring a beautiful scenery.
Feel like having one board just sitting on your desk with the inner engraving being exposed is so justi(n)fied. :)

Hi everyone

For what it's worth, prior to having the logo above the arrow key cluster, I had a removable stainless steel badge in the shape of a cloud:

Show Image


I understand that some may not want 'branding' on the top face of the board, while some may simply like a clean look with nothing at all - however, in this case it's a bit difficult to tell if people don't like the engraving being a 'brand', rather than an 'emblem' that represents the board. I get it, because I feel that way too. I think engravings of a cloud / cloudline would feel more tangible to the owner, rather than the brand - only I would really feel connected to the triangle logo (since it's me!!), but those who know it's cloudline would feel more comfortable with a cloud.

Now, the reason I didn't roll with this cloud emblem - I didn't want to add another separate part, and didn't like the positioning that I had chosen. I may consider revisiting this cloud engraving offset to the right (in the same place the logo is currently in).

Hello, I'd like to revisit this in case it got lost in earlier conversation but I think this would make a beautiful addition to the board and really work thematically. I feel that sometimes the top of boards can look very plain but this would add that nice little touch. I also think that it would look a lot nicer to keep the cloud centered compared to having  it be off centered in either direction.

I agree with everything said here. I would like some engraving. I prefer clouds, but logo is ok too, just something to help distinguish the top-down view from all the other TKL boards.

Hi guys

There will be an engraving over the arrow cluster, as mentioned in msg 139: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=109637.msg3007088#msg3007088

(For reference; the photo:)



While this is the engraving in the plans right now, it can still be subject to change. While I love a flowing and curvy design and initially wanted something like scripture for an engraving, I figured to do something that was more in tune with the bottom weight engraving design - uniform, concise, straight-to-the-point lines for a very simple engraving.

While I'm generally more a fan of clean tops, this is done tastefully and feels unobtrusive. Very nice.

Thank you everyone for the interest

Just wanted to update here to let you guys know that the project is still in the works - currently I am waiting on  the second prototype to come in. The manufacturer had a bit of a mishap in machining and had to redo some parts. IC is still alive, but I did not want to bump unless there was something worth announcing; Now I figure I have a duty to do so with all the responses since my last update.

Will be posting a large update when the next prototype arrives with a lot more useful information regarding things like group buy, unit counts, pricing, and what-not.

Since it's been so long without any real update, I received a quick snapshot from the manufacturer and am liking how the steel frame is turning out. Here is something to show that things are moving. No abandoned IC here... :-)

 

Again, early pictures should be taken with a grain of salt. I hope to have this in my hands soon enough, and will snap more shots / videos when the time comes.

Kinda wished the arrow engraving was a little more pronounced but I'm sure that's not for everyone.

I have felt the same way, but I operate through trial and error. I have something in mind for this, here is a snippet of an update I shared on Discord (I reserve major updates for Geekhack and IG, though Discord is where I ramble more and share minor thoughts). Stay tuned, perhaps you will be a fan of the alternate vision I have.



I have been pondering an idea recently. The internals of Cloudline are detailed and not visible when built - I know. So I've contemplated spicing up the external engraving a bit as well, while keeping a similar design language, so that some blend of elegance / intricacy can be seen from the outside to match. Some have seen the new proposed engraving - I'll confirm and show it to everyone when I can get this in person and have an in-person look at what I've got.

Amazing work... the passion, technical work, creativity, testing and interaction w/ the community embodies the best of this hobby.  Looking forward to the updates on the next prototype.

It's products like this that brings out the salt @ gb.  Taking an 'L' on this one will hurt.
