Awesome review! I hope Applet will do a small run so I could build a Canon alps board, would be fantastic.

Yeah this would be great. It's the only 60% PCB with flex cutouts and Alps support, yeah?

There is the voyager60 which also has the flex cut, there has been talk of doing a run of those I've seen (I hope with ai03's blessing). That is a very clean PCB, since the layout support is much more limited.

I will update the main post, but here is a short update:

I recently did a small run of these cards (done with the files in the release on my github), both SMK and Alps to verify the new revision and provide a few PCB's I promised for a long while now.

Changes in the new revision is added canon spherical support and aligning the PCB with my other projects, so a few component changes and PCB outline changes and other tweaks. We now have support for unikorn, tho not tested. Other than PCB changes, I have a PR to add VIA support. We initially had some issues, I have removed a lot of the support in VIA, and it now works fine. If you have a very non-standard layout, QMK is the way. For a more standard layout, the new VIA-implementation works. Should be added to the main repo within a month, if you need it earlier, I can provide the file.

I still have a few extras, DM me if there is interest in buying one or a few.

Here is a pic of the new revision:
255112-0
Quick test mount of the spherical keycaps:
255114-1

Thanks for showing interest in the project!  ;D

Big Thanks to Applet for the great work! Finally I can make use of my canon typewriter keycaps, if anyone need a plate file for this layout just lmk (or I can cut it for you with some cost)

I still have a few of these in SMK-version and one in Alps-version up for sale if anyone is interested, drop me a PM here or mail at mail@4pplet.com if so (green just like in main post). Apologies if someone did not get a response on PM, just send me a new one if that is/was the case.

Stay safe! :D

EDIT:
I also added the simplified VIA-config for this project to https://remap-keys.app/, you can remap your keys in the browser (only the latest chrome version is supported), this is also valid for my other QMK-projects.

Are you not producing these in quantity yet? That's too bad :/ What a great PCB. The only like it as far as Alps support goes.

Not in quantity yet. So far, I've mostly only made PCB's to verify the new revisions. I do have plans to make them available, but I still need to figure out the best way for me to do that (GB vs vendor vs making a webshop). :D

I finally built my RAMA thermal:

KB: Rama Thermal Kuro
PCB: Steezy60 SMK, Rama Thermal doughter board
Plate: Red Anodized Aluminium
Switches: SMK 2nd gen, MX, clicky (new old stock)
Keycaps: Infinikey PBT WoB, BoW & Bred
Stabs: GMK
Foam: KBDFANS stabs sticker foam, KBDFANS spacebar foam, KBDFANS module foam

Awesome keyboard. Thank you, Applet  :thumb:

Wow, such a pretty build! Thanks for sharing :cool:

Glad your Thermal was not lost ;D

Hello, Applet.
I'm sending you the correct position of the PSH connector. All wilba's PCBs have same position. If you had several boards made with a corrected connector position, I would buy 5 pieces. :)

Hi, thanks for the measurements  :cool:

Currently, I have aligned this project with my other PCB's, and the daughter board connector is moved so it should fit rubber-worm mount well (like the unikorn or bakeneko). Is the position on the older or the new one an issue in wilba/rama boards? I will likely keep this new position for general releases. We could possibly do a one-off set of boards with the same daughter board connector placement like wilba.

Latest connector placement:

Thermal has a groove for the connector and cable.
Because the connector is outside the groove, the leaf spring does not work. The connector touches the bottom of the case.

I'll see if I can work in the possibility to have that position of the daughter board connector (and ESD-chip) also as an alternative assembly. :D
