FAQ

About:

This is not the first ever design I have made. However, I know I still have a way to go and plan to improve throughout this. I also plan to make sure every part of the design will be refined throughout the prototyping stages to ensure the final product is perfect.

Updates
06/18
-After reviewing some of the feedback you guys have given me, I am planning to get a prototype ordered soon.
-I have removed unneeded machining time from the top frame to reduce cost
06/22
-I Have updated the size of the fillets on the USB-C cutouts to reduce machine time
06/28
-Prototype ordered
08/13
-prototype will be arriving in about a week

Disclaimer:

Everything on this interest check is a work in progress. Therefore, the design is not final and can have some changes made to it. This is to get a better working design as well as making it a higher quality product.

Questions:

If you have any questions or any improvement, I could make to the design please feel free to join the Emperor IC discord server:  https://discord.gg/Jm7sc59N
-I have more detailed pictures of the prototype on the discord. I will also be posting a sound test onto the discord soon!

Sir this is what we usually call a 75%. looks pretty nice although I think you could've refined it a bit before posting

Those are are rubber damper balls used to mount flight controllers on race drones, right?

Yes that's correct I initially go the idea from that.

then you should look around to see how other ICs are being carried out and study from them. take this back to the drawing board, flesh it out more, and at the very least have a prototype ordered when the IC is posted.

I have looked at different ICs. I said this a work in progress so please understand. However, I have taken this into consideration and am ordering a prototype soon.

I canít really take it back as geekhack is to primitive to allow me to delete topics and I have looked at different ICs so and as I said this a work in progress so do not expect me to have a prototype instantly.

Then maybe you should wait for a prototype first before you post, its not obligated but it is recommend

looks aight, dont be discouraged! its norm for those kind of people to put you down like that. its unfortunate but thats how it is here. Looking forward to see this project progress forward!  :thumb:

I love the design language of this board and the 75% form factor is great. It's likely going to cost way more money than I can reasonably part with at the moment, but aside from that I think its awesome.

how much of this is filleted properly?

The design consists of mostly chamfers (45) and the fillets are 1/3 Height

The idea is cool, but definitely needs some work. Recommend getting a prototype. I hope that this goes well for you!
