Introducing the GetawayVan

GB Form: https://forms.gle/Un5uDhvRXgNcq5Us5

The gb will have a 75 board limit and a 25 3dp case limit

I got tired of waiting for van pcbs so may as well make it myself, therefore the GetawayVan is a drop-in minivan compatible pcb that features:
-Allpcb Manufacturing as they do my silks oh so pretty
-An ARM microcontroller
-Usb Type C
-ESD Protection
-Per key addressable rgb
-Alps support
-Solderable for those that dislike the current hotswap options
-multiple layouts for those that want split bars, big bars or a symmetrical look


Campsite FULL PC plates in the split layout will be available through this gb given there is enough interest, I'll be selling 3dp cases and I've worked with Jake from P3D to get GetawayVan specific pages up to make it easier on everyone.


The board has been my daily driver for the last few months and overall I feel confident in that if you want a van layout now this should be what you are looking at.

Alright some updates, pcbs finally got sent out to me and i ended up having to buy some usb4085s off of aliexpress with dhl to not have the building take another half month.
Plates got here and they are perfect. Posted a bunch of pictures to the discord.

Campsite plates: I wont bother running them myself but once files are public i'll make gerbers and dxf files available and taylor/KnoblesseOblige/aeternus.co will have pc plates available to be cut so bother him about it why don't ya. He may be able to make cf as well but that depends on a bunch of things. (Edit: taylor gave rough estimates of pc and cf plates. So pc will come out around 30 and the cf plates will be closer to 70 or so. So if you want to get either and a round 2 pcb that should be plenty of time.)

Shipping invoices will go out as soon as i build and test a board and I can start packing the boards to get the proper weights for shipping stuff out.
Extras will be sold after all packages are shipped out. Ill be making it so that the extra pcbs are sold with bstock cases with the option to upgrade to a new case and hardware since i dont want that **** in the corner of my room anymore and just throwing it out is bad.

Round 2 i have no clue where it will run but fill out this form for if you want to be notified of when it will be announced and ill probably do it when it hits 100 people or something idk.
