[IC] DSA or DCS Big Ass Enter
« on: Fri, 15 October 2021, 14:15:49 »
This is an IC for a DSA or DCS big ass enter set I would like to run it in white, black and maybe other colors if you suggest anything else. I am looking at using NN for the black color and WA for the white


 
This is truly just to gage interest and apart from asking Signature Plastics if they still have molds for the big ass enter key I have not finalized anything.

IC form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScTkh5-0J8H4nUM3-UMnWF7IAJUPpvHn-C-y3kdd7b3Wf0XQg/viewform

The mounting layout for the key supports ANSI and ISO stabilizers.


UPDATE
I have updated the form and added a question to determine what profile its run in. I have also turned on response editing so if you have already filled out the form please add what profile you want the set to be run in.

I’ve been waiting for a set with big ass enter

Hoping that they still have molds for the key to support ANSI/ISO stabs

I emailed them about a month ago asking about it and they said that they do still have the molds.

It would be awesome, but I have lost my hopes.
Years go by, BAE ICs pop up and every time it ends with nothing :(

I am in for one in every colour.  Try and get some older aged cream shades in there and maybe a grey to boot.

Big ass enter is definitely a niche in the hobby but I'm hoping with the boom the hobby has gotten we can finally get enough people to do a group buy that can go for a reasonable price.

I was working on one at one point but my PCB designing is cheesing it at best. I couldn't get the layout of the board right with the limited amount of space.

UPDATE
So far I have 15 people that have filled out the form and it has stagnated. I don't really know what how many I need to approach a vendor about it but what I have been told from emailing Signature Plastics is a minimum order value for anything going into production is $100 (not including stock items).

Maybe try changing the profile to DCS instead of DSA. I know I'd be down for some DCS BAEs & suspect the profile is a big factor in the small amount of responses.

I agree. DCS is very similar to Cherry profile and that's what most people use. It wouldn't feel out of place because the sculpt would be better than DSA on a board with Cherry caps.

Thank you both for your input I will update my post. I am a complete nube when it comes to keycaps so this is super helpful. I think I will need to update the color samples as well.

Still waiting on enough interest to run a group buy. I have 26 responses to the interest check form. Still waiting sorry for the lack of updates.

Wow. I haven't seen that stabiliser arrangement before.

In practice it supports only ANSI stabilisers. These are offset from ISO both on the horizontal and the vertical, to accommodate the "shared" stem in the corner.

There are two other ICs that include a BAE. One for GMK and the other for SP, the last is a full WoB set; the former is a dedicated BAE set. Both are targeting BAEs that fit on an ANSI board. The layout includes standard ANSI enter stabs and one to work on a dummy switch at the backslash-pipe location. This arrangement does not fit the ISO enter but should be the best to pull the interest of anyone with a programmable ANSI keyboard.

Unless there is a new one GMK big ass enter isn't happening. What's the name of the SP set?
