Keyboards / Help on building a custom alps brutal60 ISO/DE plate
« Last post by MrNips on Sun, 17 October 2021, 18:51:17 »
Hello everyone,

first of all this is my first post on GH so I apologize for any formatting atrocities I might commit or if this is posted in the wrong place please let me know, I'll move it.

Anyhow, I'm going to be building a WKL Brutal 60 with SKCL Green Alps and I need some help on getting a plate in working order. I'm going to be using the KeebMeUp Alps 60% PCB, which supports the layout I'm going for. Speaking of layout, I'm going ISO for my first alps build. I'll be using the caps/stabs from an ACER 6312-k keyboard.

First, please let me know if this is a good idea or any build sanity check/criticism is appreciated.
Second, someone from the cannonkeys discord was kind enough to throw together a mock plate file for me, but this person is unsure whether the tolerances, fitment, and placements are correct. Would anyone be willing to give me some pointers on the plate file? If I can avoid the time and money of getting it cut multiple times that would be great.

Here is the link to the brutal60 plate file and the alps plate file I have so far:

I am very confused by the kitting. You say the base kit includes ISO-UK support but it doesn't? You've also included a second B even though there appears to be no Alice bars in your kits.

I would rec against going the standard GMK style base kit especially for SA..
I kinda like it, but it reminds me of too many things, carbon and Honeywell. The one SA PBT retro set from aliexpress with the blue accents and GMK ursa with the green accents.

Carbon: no 40s support

Carbon at home: also no 40s support

The colors and inspiration spark joy.

Very interested to see where the color choices goes. I agree that it is very subtle differences, but I like those minute details in sets.

Hi! Can we get another progress update?

Interest Checks / SA Midcentury Modern - Clean retro coloured set
« Last post by edwyn on Sun, 17 October 2021, 18:25:07 »
SA Midcentury Modern

IC Form       Discord


Inspiration Journey: Short explanation of how I got here

Openkey Phase One
All started from seeing Openkey Team's Phase One keyboard (now in GB until Oct 24th!) and thinking it
would look great paired with the retro vibes of the SA profile. Played around with some colors that I thought
fit the vibe and tried some SA's color ring matching. Made a quick render and sent
it over to the Openkey team to get their thoughts. They liked it and offered to do a render of my caps on their
board (Yea!) Phase One GB LINK





Time Variance Authority on Loki
Once I had Openkey's render it struck me that I subconsciously was channelling the design aesthetics I saw on
the Loki show last month. The browns and oranges that was all over the TVA office that gave the viewer the retro
vibe. Think this set wouldn't look out of place on the Loki set



Midcentury Modern
I started to do research on what were the inspirations for the Loki's set design and found the Mid-Century Modern
design movement. The research gave me a much more concrete reference to my design and gave me ideas on
additional colors I could use for an accent kit that would fit the theme instead of doing novelties to fit the original
"less is more" theme(?) Open to suggestions feedback/though!




P.S I do have a GMK set also in IC. Was not my intention to run another IC in parallel but did not want to run this
IC after the Phase One GB had ended.  Hope this is ok, if not let me know
