Perfect. Just a 1.25u shift is missing :)

In base kit under the ISO Enter.
Ohh. Missed that sorry

Keyboards / [NOOB Alert] first 60% build - own case
« Last post by mcarni on Mon, 28 May 2018, 02:41:30 »
guys,

I am planning my first build, I know it will be a 60%, I think I found most of the components (pcb, switches, plate & keycaps...)
Regarding layout / layers I am still studying the forums and the documentation on QMK so I do not want to bother you with questions at the moment...might come later, but now I do not feel ready...

On the other side, since I decided to make my own case, I would like to ask you for a couple of info.
I have some wood lying around so my plan is to do something with that (pictures will come if the end results is not too bad...)
I am not sure of what the height of the case should be.
I see that there are cases that let the switches exposed (or at least partially exposed) and cases that are higher and that show only the keycaps exposed.
Is the choice between the two options driven by the look or is there any practical reason to choose one or the other?

I would like to understand how high the sides of the case should be.
I tried to look but I could not find it, is there a schematic or a drawing of what is the typical height from the top face of the pcb and the bottom of the keycaps? Or is it maybe better to say from the top face of the pcb to the top face of the mounting plate?

I am assuming that these dimensions will be driven by the height of the cherry (or clones) switches and the height of the keycaps...
I understand that this depends on the different keycaps profile, I am thinking of xda caps if this helps...

 

thanks for your help

M

This is what I've come up with for an Intl kit

Taking advantage of the sublegends I was able to cover a good deal of compatibility according to what I've seen of comparing the layouts. Additionally, some of the base kit sublegends already take care of some of the keys needed. This should provide row-correct legends for ISO UK, DE, SE, NO, DK, and a smidge of support for IT, ES, PT as they tended to differ largely from the others. Crazy how many ISO sub-layouts there are.
Perfect. Just a 1.25u shift is missing :)

Keyboard Keycaps / Re: Making new keycaps
« Last post by overflow on Mon, 28 May 2018, 02:30:44 »
yes i personally agree with you. its kind of previllage that handmade keycaps only have. CNC or 3d printing cannot show some natural unique feeling. they are very accurate and the fact that other people also have same exact keycaps makes some people dissapointed  ( actually its my case).

Keyboards / Re: Sudden Decline in Keyboard Interest

I see multiple hobbies as a blessing and a curse. It's nice to always have something to change over to, but then you also always have something to spend money on.

Other Geeky Stuff / Re: Chromebooks

Chromebooks are nice for casual users because it's far less likely that they will download some kind of malware to completely bork up their systems. I've tried getting people to use Linux Mint as a nice alternative but they inevitably always complain that "Windows" is broken and doesn't work.

Keyboard Keycaps / Re: Which Sets Do YOU Most Desire to See a Rerun Of?

XDA Godspeed
DSA Godspeed (perhaps with Keylluminati this time)

My two favorite sets and I'm still searching everywhere for the XDA calculus. The prices are getting upsurd, Mito might as well do another run and rake up all the cash, there is a huge demand right now.
