[IC] EVIL TROY 92 With numeric keypad
« on: Fri, 18 March 2022, 09:26:43 »
This project originally started in 2020 but due to unsatisfaction of surface finish, the project was put on hold. This year we found a better surface finish factory and we felt like we could start it again. At the end of 2021, we updated the project, and please allow me to introduce you our Evil Troy 92
--------------------
Evil Troy 92
7 degrees
Poron Gasket Mounts/ Silicon Gasket Mount (Both options)
Hotswap Only
On board Type C / Aviator Connector Optional
Default RGB Name Plate (Aviator Module Optional)
Standard Layout with Per Key RGB PCB or Supports Split Left Shift, Step caps lock and split back space with rgb PCB
Aluminum Housing with Brass Weight
Brass Insert for the back logo
Alumimnum Plate / PC Plate

Originally rendered in 2020

(At that time, we also designed a separate keycap set to match the color)










Revised version renders




Renders of revised version(Prototypes were made with this version)
Revised version will be compatible with RGB Nameplate and Aviator Plug



Revised Version Raw Prototype (The final product is subject to change)







We used two fixed methods




In the revised version, we have added a separate aviation plug (The final product shall be subject to the integrated scheme)




We have added a glass module at the logo on the back.
You can choose whether to install or not. The glass is fixed by rubber rings, which is very convenient to install and disassemble.
The foot pad has also been modified and improved. Now the foot pad is integrated with silica gel, which can be disassembled and replaced freely, which is more convenient.




We are already making new prototype based on the revision. We will update it in the post if there are new developments in the follow-up. If you have good suggestions, you can leave a message to us. Thank you.

OMG! This is an amazing layout for me. I never use the winkey in my life and I do sometimes use number pads for work. I'd super excited for this board!

I prefer a hotswap pcb and I know lots of people like hotswap option.

I like how you looked at the 1800CP layout and thought, "Wow, that is really functional! But how can I make the numpad utterly useless?"

Unless you don't need a +, -, or ENTER key, lol.

There seem to be 6 screws on the brass weight and 4 more screws on the bottom case. Is there a way to make it screwless or reduce the number of screws?

The black color rendered case seems a bit dark grey(maybe it's just my phone), hope the final color is a "darker black" color. Like really black.

Flex cut alu plate seems to be very popular, look forward to seeing the typing flexibility of this board. Assume this layput is greatly suitable for office works, a flexible typing experience would be great.

There are some cool aspects. I like the glass insert. That said, I just canít get over the numpad. Removing enter, -, +, etc seems to defeat the purpose of it.

Regardless, good luck with the project

Just wondering, where would the numlock key be?

Also there seems to be a missing 3, 4, 6, 9, 0, ., and / from the sub legends in your guys renders. Might wanna take a look at that

I love the idea of not having the -, +, enter keys. I sometimes use the numpad for work such as Excel or other apps just to enter a whole bunch of numbers, but rarely used the -, + keys because I'm mot using nu
pad as a calculator.

Also not having the full numpad reduces the width of this compact "full size" board.

Do you guys have Discord? Any estimated timeline for this board?

In the new design, we have reduced the two screws in the middle. The gray color is the reason for rendering the image

The color has not been determined yet. In addition to the ink splashing anode, we have also added coating coloring
