[IC] GMK Dimple Homing Addon Kit
« on: Sat, 04 May 2024, 01:10:21 »

GMK Dimple Addon

This is an addon kit for dimple homing keys (R3 F and J). This type of homing key goes by many names- dimple, dot, nipple, probably more. They are my preferred type of homing key, but few sets include them.

The Kit
The kit consists of 3 colorways- Beige, Dolch, and WoB

Details
- The keys are all R3, with dot/dimple/nipple homing
- I donít have pricing details, but I would like to see if I can get this for sale at $15-$20.
- I am not planning on taking a design cut in order to get this as cheap as possible. I just want the caps.

IC Forms
Yes, there are two. One is for potential purchasers so I can try and gauge interest in this initial kit, and see how viable this idea is. The second form is for designers that would like to submit their colorway for a potential second kit of more colors, pending interest. Because my goals here are to get caps made, I cannot offer designers compensation if they want their colors run. I hope you understand.

General IC
Designer Submission

Deskmats
No.

Who am I?
My name is Chippy, Iíve been in the hobby for well over five years at this point, but this is my first IC (I think?). Hopefully I didnít miss anything. I do work professionally within the hobby space, but this set is being ICíd by me personally. I donít have a personal discord server, so if you have feedback or questions, please post them in this thread.

Vendors
None at the moment, I want to figure out if this idea is viable first.

much prefer bars but glad this project exists, gotta have the options for the dimple enjoyers out there.

Just wondering why you didn't dimple the numpad 5, guess it adds too much to the cost. GLWIC

cherry blacks - unlubed - filmed and springswapped with tx 55g mediums - alu Plate | pretty happy with this, the blacks were cherry picked so they weren't that scratchy to begin with, but currently breaking them in, may lube them with a dry lube like ro59 or ptfe powder.

lubed with tribosys 3203 | like topre a lot, prefer it lubed but did make less tactile but that might have been a skill issue. probably will get more tactile over time as the domes age.

bad orange alps lol | definitely needs a restoration. planning on wax boiling them and maybe a replacement pcb because the board has only 2 key rollover apparently.

gateron yellows - lubed with 205g0 - 62g tx mediums - pc plate | probably my favourite keyboard already, feels super nice and sounds pretty good, it's got a great layout as well. probably gonna build this with mx browns, I feel like it would suit the board more.

stock with silent reds | Pretty cool looking board, the silent reds are actually good, they are smooth and I don't mind the mushiness (it's not even that mushy as well). the layout is pretty weird, but is useable. will probably mod this in the future. maybe a pcb and plate swap, change the keycaps to something dolch like, and also spring swap the springs in the silent reds.

This has been stripped down to be as low cost as possible, which meant not including numpad 5 dimple. Also, a solid amount of sets do include that key, making it less necessary.

Ah fair enough, didn't know that a bunch a sets included that key anyway.

Thank you everyone for filling out the IC, and leaving your kind notes on this IC thread.

Due to a lack of interest, I have decided to remove BoW from the colorways, leaving us with 3- Beige, Dolch, WoB.

I am on the fence at the moment if there is enough interest in this, but I am hopeful there are enough dimple homing enthusiasts to make this happen.

If you have not already, please fill out the IC form. It really helps me gauge how realistic this hitting moq would be.
