21/09/21 Update and Thoughts

After receiving the R2 prototypes and going over the design again I'm extremely happy with how the R3 redesign went to address some things that came up in the R2 prototypes.

These were mainly an issue with flexible plate materials not having enough case cavity to support them properly, but also required more mounting points to also achieve this. This seems like a better solution but also provides flexibility for the end user to choose what mounting points should be used, in my head I have it that for stiffer plate materials you'd be able to use less tadpoles for more flex. Also simplified the plate design all together, to be fair the first one was pretty memey and definitely not required, a bit over zealous on my behalf but I'm happy with where we've landed now.

Also made some changes to the case bottom, notably making the case bottom side profile perpendicular to the ground. This helps with making sure the USB Daughterboard is also perpendicular to the ground now for better user experience, but the flow on effect of this is that the case bottom itself no longer has a trapezium bottom face to it, meaning that the weight is now a normal rectangle which looks more pleasing to the eye. The case bottom also has a more flowy back profile, which I think with the other touches such as the softening of the front edge fillets in R3 have helped make the case less boxy and more refined.


I'm super happy with the forest green and plum red colours, I think they've come out a treat and will definitely be included in the final group buy


[Edit] Also as part of the R3 design, have designed an accompanying wrist rest and will be having this prototyped in the next round of prototypes


[Editedit] Was able to build the R2 prototype recently and record a sound test. I love how the pop of the hyperglides comes through the board, very happy with how it's sounding right now

Thanks for the update Qwertle!

The forest green looks gorgeous, I love it! I'm looking forward to hearing & seeing more, and hopefully owning my own one day!

IC filled in.  Please provide a wrist rest to match at the time of production as it really is a requirement of such a board.  Love the colours by the way.  Please also keep me one of these. :)

I actually forgot to mention in my update that a wrist rest for the Calice was designed and will be prototyped, cheers for reminding me!

Unfortunately due to the design ISO layout isn't available for Calice

Very rarely is ISO an option on Alice style layout boards.  There a few exceptions, the best (so far IMO) being a board called FLX Virgo.  That said, I too am a die hard ISO fan but I also love the alice layout and once you use it you might even prefer ANSI as it works very well in this configuration.

I like this.
I think theres a bit too many top mounting points.
4 on top and bottom of the plate should be enough.
