I really enjoyed watching this set develop!

Some points for improvement:
-vertically center caps and shift in 40s
-consider accented 1.75u enter in 40s
-board renders could use improvements, especially with lighting

Overall I think this is a great start to an IC and I'm sure this set will be successful, best of luck!  :thumb:

Thanks! I'll definitely be working on my board renders and I'll have a look at those points with the 40s.

A few kitting suggestions:
  • In base, consider changing the R3 1.75u Control to use an icon legend for a more consistent look (example).
    The text legend has a habit of looking odd when paired with icon mods.

  • In base, add an extra R4 1u key with a generic legend, e.g. Code, Meta or even a novelty legend thematically tied to the set, e.g. GPS.
    This extra key has a few use cases, including covering some oddball layout variants from 40% all the way up to 1800.

  • In numpad, add a R1 1u = key for 1800/CP/96-key and Mac numpad support.

  • In NorDe, the following keys are currently missing; add them:
    • R1 1u 2"@
    • R1 1u 3#
    • R3 1u \|
    • R4 1u <> w/o sublegend
    • (optional) R4 1u , numpad key
    Also, the R4 1u ;: key in the NorDeUk kit has an incorrect legend, it should be changed to ,;.
    (reference)

Super interesting IC. Unconventional kitting that I'm sure will make the 40% fans pretty happy.

Curious to see how those novelties end up -- that's a lot of fine detail on one 1.25u cap

Many European layouts need it and this key is mislabled on this frequently used template :) Still haven't found a layout that actually uses R4 ; :

Who do you plan to use to manufacture this keyboard? What material are you going to have it made out of? What keycap profile are you going to use?

I love the color scheme and want a set for myself. I am hoping that this set is made out of PBT and uses the cherry or OEM profile for the switches.

Just noticed, the base kit has a 1.50 shift labeled and no 1.75 shift. Im guessing this is just an overlook or typo. Looks like a great set and very well may be my first MW set.
