Center stem stepped capslock here?
Why not DCS WYSE? Same classic white/gray scheme with navy font and yellow accent. If we love DCS we donít need a halfsteps.

I dont mind having the thin DCS I've typed on it before and it lets you feel the switch more. It shows you the difference between the switches more.
I quite like the sound of DCS on some keyboards too!

That was the most coherent thing the treeleaf has said in a while

Looks great. Good old beige!

That said, I'm really curious how much more expensive this would be if it were PBT. PBT DCS is a lot nicer to me than ABS DCS.

The quotes for PBT for a base kit this large are insane - to the point that at the large MOQ breaks its more to manu than i would be selling as this in ABS. Future plans are for more DCS sets with smaller kits but ran in PBT, its the only feasible way.

  • Confirming a few things such as the stem locations for the stepped caps with SP. This is still an early IC :D
  • I personally am not a fan of the WYSE grey colors. I wanted beige specifically, just following the traditional fontface. Unsure what you mean by halfsteps.

When do you release more renders, put one up on the Frog TKL!

It'll be rendered on my own TKL soon  :p

Those are all things being confirmed. With the renders coming soon, I'll have several options for people to vote on. I'm not a fan of the backspace, but it does have a charm to it! And yes to caps, I traced it to be able to render it. Just been busy.

Better be honest than come up with some BS. When I get the sample set, I'll make models from scans of that. Keep it accurate for those who else want to use the models in the future too :D

It would be cool to have usual stepped capslock and center stem stepped capslock both. Super cool for hotswap PCBs.
Yea, i realise that WYSE colors are really too gray! Cherry beige colors are more usual.



Downside view because tops are burned in peroxide.
I mean "not for hardcore WYSE fans", but actually DCS is very close to Topre and Space Invaders caps too.

Also maybe make mods with ANSI style with descriptions (Shift, Enter, Tab, Backspase)?
Or why ISO Enter have Enter lettering))

I mentioned in the old kitting, that everything would be moving to icon only (so no text on any of the mods). It was a mistake in the renders :(

any chance of using cherry font like DCS Sleeper used?  Really impressed with the work on that set.

I would, but gmk 9009 exists, so whats the point. I prefer how WYSE looks on DCS personally, and is why I am sticking to it.
