[IC] GMK Ortho
« on: Sat, 18 September 2021, 19:00:47 »
GMK Ortho

There aren't much ortho sets around and support to fill anything bigger then a 40% I decided to design a clean ortho set that is also hopefully affordable.
Since Ortho doesn't have a big userbase I would like to see what people think of the colorway by presenting it trough Keyboard layout editor.

Feedback would be helpful  :)

Updating IC with a better base set

Adding more kitting to support more Ortho layouts and adding text to the base keys



Plastic Color codes
The colors are all stock GMK colors
Base keys N9
Numpad WS1
Shift N7
Ctrl RO1
Meta CV
Alt TU1
Lower/Raise V2
← TU1
→ CV
↓ RO1
↑ N7

if your goal is to make a set specifically for ortho, i don't understand why you would do mostly blanks. you have the opportunity to cover most of the use cases with correct legends. in addition you're missing convex 1u and 1.5u bars, and support for boardwalk, probably the most notable larger than preonic ortho format. the colorway also leaves a lot to be desired to say the least.

I was gonna say "tf is this" but you took those words out of my mouth with such spot on appreciation.

OP...you need a lot of research for this, even as an ortho fan myself, is not nearly as compelling.

Oh yeah I see that makes more sense. I put too much of my own taste in before really thinking about other boards and yes you are right with the legends and supporting the boardwalk. For sure I will add more spacebars to the kit. I am gonna update the base set and try to support all ortho layouts.
