KAT Chinchillin

Whimsy by thisisfourteen


As chinchilla owners we have always been amazed by just how cute they are
We wanted to bring that cuteness to keycaps
The colours are based off of a violet chinchilla and a pink white chinchilla
Keep Chinchillin!


Our Inspiration
These are our chinchillas which sparked the initial idea for this set


Colours



Kitting
Easy Basekit
We decided that we wanted to give an option for an easy basekit so even those of us who are not well versed in what kit they need can purchase the set without worry

Interesting to see another KAT IC

Are you aware of the current issues with KAT and the current queue of KAT keysets?

chinchilla's are super cute and have more personality than most other furry, 4-legg'ed friends that size.

Are those 1.75u mods in R1 really 1.75u? If it's correct, are you planning to offer 1.5u mods for tsangan/HHKB bottom rows?

This is really cute! I love the KAT profile and another white keycap set would be great.

In your 40s kit there's 2x 1.75u backspace, one of them should be a 1.5u backspace.
Also for the 40s kit it's generally best to keep all the 40s bars in one place. That being 2x1u, 2x1.75u, 2x2u, 2.25u, 2.75u. 2x1.5u is appreciated if there's room. 2x3u can be in either 40s or space bars.
Keeping a complete set of 40s bars in 40s makes sense since some of them (like 2x1.75u) is pretty much not used by any other keyboards and also that way 40s users don't have to pick up an extra kit.

Though even going with your current idea of buying 40s + spacebars (which I'd advice against) I can't find that the set has 2.25u or 2.75u at all.

If you want advice/help for 40s kitting the keycap designer discord has a 40s channel filled with helpful, knowledgeable people.

Thanks! realised my mistake here, there is meant to be 2.25u and 2.75u in the alpha kit. I will fix this.

Can I make a suggestion:

For the base set, you're missing mod color (white) pipe and tilde.

They are present in the standalone mod kits, either purple or white.
This can work too if the combined price of alphas and mods are the same as base set.

As a HUGE Chinchilla fan... I have to ask, is Colevrak+ kit really not an option? Because this set aside from that is a dream about to come true...


... Maybe time to go back to Qwerty... Oh nooooo...

Updated kitting - 40's, spacebars, accent colour

I know I've asked about this before but please consider moving 1.75u bars from spacebar kit to 40s kit. I'm not quite sure what "big" board needs 1.75u bars, as far as I'm aware they're a strictly 40s thing and as such belong in the 40s kit.

On the subject of bars you also seem to have 2x2.25u instead of 2.25u+2.75u in your normal bars kit. There also seems to be 7u in both the alpha kit and the bars kit. Normally 7u is in either alpha (my personal preference) or TKL mods.

Colevrak Support Added!

Thank you not only for adding Colverak+, but for having two kits to cover both alpha colors!

Two ideas:

1) If the alpha kits have non-homing F & J, please consider adding an R2 non-homing U to the Colevrak+ kits for non-homing Dvorak support.  (I can't tell if the alpha kit renders show bar & dish or bar & non-homing.)

2) Adding one row 2 keycap - right bracket/right brace - would support Wide mod, which works for all layouts except Dvorak.

I'm planning a build for my wife, and she will love these caps.
Super nice to have complete alpha-set for NorDE. There is an big # for ANSI Boards with ISO Layout (it's what I'm using), thats pretty rare, haven't seen it yet. And those novelties are sooo cute.

I have a few Questions:
Is it PBT or ABS? Looks like double shots, are those novelties also double shot or any kind of print? Will there be a moq?

There are a few mistake in your renders for the white NorDE Kit - R4: 2; 6; and 8 are doubled. It's ok for the purple NorDE Kit.
