Case Specifications
Typing Angle: ~7 Degree
Front Height: ~20mm
Mounting: GummyWorm O-Ring mount keyboard
Case Material: Polycarbonate
Finish: Sandblasted

PCB
Solder PCB

Currently Plan to use dz60 flexcut as the PCB for this keyboard
Hot-Swap PCB
Switch = Cherry-Style Switches only
Facing = South Facing Switches
RGB = 12 RGB Underglow
Thickness = 1.2mm
Firmware = QMK/VIA/VIAL

What's Include in the package
- Hard Carrying Case
- 50A O-ring
- Screw
- Silicon Feet


Price
Quote from the manufacturer that the whole kit should be around 150 to 170 USD

Supported Layout

- Solder PCB as DZ60 Flexcut supported layout
- Hotswap PCB Standard 1.75u shift with stepped capslock supported (Original caps lock south facing hot-swap socket, stepped capslock north facing hot-swap socket)

Additional Stuff
- Slot - 50 to 100 pieces
- The sales format will be GB and an FCFS
- Vendor - TBD
- The one prototype in the picture is printed in resin to test out the fitment of the case. Currently, a proper PC CNC case is under production and the picture will be updated once the keyboard arrives.

*UPDATE*
1. Since china government is locking down some places again and apparently the prototype manufacturer is right at the lockdown place, the prototype will now have a delay. When I will receive the prototype is still Unknown according to the manufacturer.

2. After approaching to KBDFans, the pricing for dz60 is not suitable for the GB pricing therefore will now use a different design PCB.

So you designed it around this ONE pcb. If you just used the publicly available, non-copyrighted Bakeneko v3 you would have DOUBLED your pcb compatibility.

OP is in Asia, and they can get DZ60s easily from kbdfans Taobao which is way cheaper than the website shipped. And when you compare this to paying 40usd in shipping from CK or NK just for bakeneko/h60 makes no sense.

So tailoring this keyboard to the dz60 V2 with gummy o-ring cutouts that 0 boards currently use is a pretty sensible move for OP's local market.

Yes, OP can double/triple/quadruple PCB compatibility with the h60/bakeneko ecosystem sounds good to an o-ring enthusiast (like me) but looking from OP's perspective NONE of those PCBs are reasonably priced and accessible to them compared to the DZ60s, which is the whole point of this board. So just like how bakeneko is affordable to NA/EU but kbdfans is super expensive, it's vice versa for people in Asia/SEA/OCE
