Title: [IC] GMK Mika - Added Discord Server
Post by: waynexu on Wed, 02 June 2021, 14:17:02
Inspiration

(https://imgur.com/gNch7Ee.jpeg)

Hi I am super excited to present my fellow enthusiasts GMK Mika, my first keyset design inspired by my very own Shiba Inu Mika.
I totally stole her color theme for this project. Mika showed up in my life last year in June and has been a proud and stubborn member of the household since then.
This keyset is dedicated to my now best friend Mika and all of you dog lovers out there, I hope you like it!

Do consider not having an extension kit and moving most things to base.

Extension kits do not run well with GMK

Same with the ISO kit

IC form link doesn't work. I need permission to enter.

Consider cutting the UK ISO kit and adding basic ISO support in base: Enter, 1.25u Shift, r3 \| and r4 <>. Accented Enter would also be nice.

If you're adding ISO-UK you have missed a few keys out. If you are going for Terminal ISO you've added the wrong keys in the correct locations.


Terminal ISO (http://www.farah.cl/Keyboardery/Why-Do-Keycap-Sets-have-so-many-Copies-of-the-Backslash-Pipe-Key/08_enUS_ISO_terminal.png) vs. ISO-UK (http://www.farah.cl/Keyboardery/Why-Do-Keycap-Sets-have-so-many-Copies-of-the-Backslash-Pipe-Key/09_enUK_ISO.png)

Thanks so much for the clarification, making quite a few mistakes here since it is my first time. I will update the base kit render soon to reflect the change. For the record, I am going for the Terminal ISO just to keep the base kit clean!

not a fan of these new kits either. numpad is going to be too expensive outside of base and extensions is going to crash. 6u offcenter also doesn't have the necessary keys for full support.

I'd recommend a couple things then:
- Extensions completely cut
- Put numpad in Base
- Put F13 in Base
- Remove R3 Pg Up and R4 Pg Dn
- Put R2 1.75u Backspace, R3 1.25u Tab, and R3 1.5u Enter in Base
- Add 1u and 1.25u bars to Spacebars
- Remove 6u offcenter

Hi, can understand the context that the enter key is based on Mika sleeping, but I would love to to see another profile like @stevenT suggested since the position just reminds me of the many photos posted online of dogs being sent to the rainbow bridge.
Pls dont be offended, just the first thing that came to my mind when I saw the enter novelty.  I'm getting this keyset anyhow.. love the colours and concept.

Sorry I donít mean to apply the pain on peopleís wallet. I get quite some people asking to remove it to cut base kit cost while some people would for sure prefer it in the base kit. Hope you understand that my intention was coming from a good place. Thanks for your feedback!

First of all...Mika is adorable!! (>ω<❀)
Just wanted to say that I like the novelties overall but I do think the Enter key/Mika sleeping one could use maybe the outline of a dog bed or something to make it seem more like she is lying down vs a dog just looking down with an arched back (which is what I saw at first before I saw your pic/comment later on). Something about it with the perspective just seems a bit off imo.
Also, the Mika sploot pic made me think it could also be turned into a cute novelty! Maybe vertically like in the pic, for the ISO enter novelty? Just some ideas ^^ GLWIC!

hello, numpad base please?

After numerous discussions and data from the poll. I am sorry to say that I canít put numpad in base and the kittings are finalized, we decided to include basic 40s in base instead. It was a tough decision to make but it seems that more people would want to have the numpad separated. Sorry again for the inconvenience, I sincerely hope you would understand, this decision was not made lightly.

That's your decision whether to run it in ABS doubleshot.

Best of luck and Mika is a cutie. I want to pet, I want to give her a hug.

That's your decision whether to run it in ABS doubleshot.

Best of luck and Mika is a cutie. I want to pet, I want to give her a hug.


Thanks, I will make sure to give Mika a hug for you. Sorry this is GMK only as of right now, I do have plans to bring to ePBT in the near future!

I would prefer something like this on enter, the dog looking down makes me feel uneasy.

Guys, which dog will be used for color matching? Is it legal? Is it ethical? :-D

I know kitting is finalized, but just felt compelled to point out that 3-key 40s support usually uses 1.5u enter--not 1.75u.

Regardless, really nice colors.

An update for the current status: We are still waiting for quotes to come back from GMK, thanks for the patience. Once the quote is in I will announce pricing ASAP.
Title: Re: [IC] GMK Mika - Updated board renders and kit renders
Post by: Mecxs on Thu, 15 July 2021, 19:15:21
You put the wrong 40s enter in. Basic 40s support is R2 1.75 backspace, R3 1.25 tab, and R3 1.5 enter. You've already got a R3 1.75 control which can be used for physical compatibility for 12u/13u boards.

This is a pretty big oversight if kitting's finalised, as the R2 1.75 backspace is completely useless without a R3 1.5 enter.

I am already looking into this, rest assured this is not 'final'. I still have room to make small changes as long as it is the right thing to do. I am having a conversation with a couple people regarding this and I will make sure to update regarding this issue. As always, thanks a ton for the feedbacks and suggestions!

Great set! I swore off partaking in GBs that are more than a year off, but I think I can make 1 exception. Already picked up an Olive colored keyboard to go with it. Think you can do a render of that with the Shiba artisan?

Thanks for the love. I would love to make the render with shiba artisan. I will try but unfortunately thok did not provide me 3D files of the artisan so I canít promise to make it happen.

No worries if you can't include the Shiba artisan, even a base kit on an olive board would be plenty appreciated!
