[IC] DSA: "Jing-Fang / Red Dragon"
« on: Thu, 05 October 2017, 11:26:44 »
Hello everybody!

Here is my DSA set design I finished for the Massdrop contest (https://www.massdrop.com/talk/2343/talk/1829928?utm_source=linkshare&referer=LA3WYK). Voting has started:
https://www.massdrop.com/talk/2428/place-your-votes-in-the-keycap-set-design-contest.

179636-0


179638-1


I wanted to see how much interest there is for this set. If the Massdrop does not go through, I am also considering this in Devlin (UK) "Q" profile. Let me know what you think.

Thank you!
Here are some more renders:

179640-2

179642-3

179644-4

179646-5

179648-6

179650-7


Thanks for all comments and votes!

I wish this was not DSA. DSA is the worse profile i've ever used. I will never buy another DSA set ever.

DSA is one option, Devlin Q another, like I said in the post  :cool:. I have a set from them, and it's great: thick ABS, more surface area than DSA/SA from SP. So if you'd rather have the Devlin, let me know in the comments.
Thanks!

I'm not digging the overall style but I love the concept. The dragon novelty is amazing and I would pay for that as my enter key.
F Keys belong on the left.

I love the concept! If it's through Massdrop, though, I'm out

As someone who's never tried DSA, what's so bad about the profile? Although I'm sure there are better profiles DSA doesn't look terrible to me.

I like the design quite a bit. I even like DSA. But the keycap models in those renders are deceiving because DSA is not that spherical in reality.

Also, would it be possible to show some renders of normal keyboards, not just ortholinears?  :rolleyes:

Thanks!
I'm away from my computer for a week more, but will make renders for a standard keyboard as well asap (still need to model, it's my first time rendering stuff). The dsa models I got off the thingyverse I think. I think DSA is the same as SA, except less tall (the top is the same surface and radius), but I might be wrong.

DSA is shaped a little different from SA. In fact, the edges of DSA are slightly more rounded than SA, but they are definitely not as rounded as those thingyverse models.

the profile is completely flat.  Just not very satisfying to type on at least in my opinion.  Also good luck going with devlin and trying to get the colors to match

Nice to see a break from all these GMK ICs and go with a different profile.

I love the uniqueness of this one, so it got my vote also :)

Also not a fan of DSA - never tried Devlin Q but it looks interesting!
