Title: [IC] GMK WoB 40s, Colevrak+ and R0/R5 (GB live 23rd March!)
Post by: ttom on Fri, 06 September 2019, 15:42:21
GB LIVE https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=105239.0

Introduction:

The current GMK White-on-Black sets available on Drop and Originative have great coverage, but still miss out on providing coverage for many different layouts. The idea behind these kits is to add some more compatibility options to this iconic set that aren't currently available, that we have been seeing in recent extension kits. The keycaps are CR with WS1 legends, matching with
GMK WoB of course.

When?

The GB will run from Monday 23rd March through to Friday 24th April, lasting roughly a month.

40s
The 40s+ kit aims to give coverage to as many different board layouts as possible not included in the original kit. This kit gives 40s, split and ergonomic boards compatibility as well as having 1.50 backspace for HHKB, and a 1.25 BoW tab to make GMK Minimal compatible with staggered 40s.

I'm kinda into this, but 2 questions:
  • is there a place to get GMK WoB? I missed the drop and
  • why do these addon sets have an extra B?

* You can wait for Massdrop to reopen their sale. Happens pretty much every month and remains open for a few days. Or you can get Originative's version of WoB, for sale at their site (albeit at a higher price).

* It's for the TGR Alice (a popular split ergonomic keyboard) and its clones.

In the IC form I requested possibly some of the newer Ortho keys found in GMK 9009 R2 and GMK Pulse. Also, I forgot to mention them, but the Tux, Windows, and OSX Cmd keys from GMK 9009 R2 would be great additions as well. Not totally necessary, however, since this already covered the base/minimum for Planck, which is good enough for me.

Reply left to response forum:

I'm running into the same problem here as I am with the 40s kit on the Katakana set. I want to buy it to match it with some alphas but the bottom row would be miscolored. If your inentions are to make this like your ortho kit, you've got to add bottom row mods, maybe even some arrow keys.

No problem <3 The approach with this kit is a bit different - it's to make your WoB set (originative / drop) compatible for 40s (among other) boards. It's not a modifier kit like the N9 ortho one.

It's icon mods instead of icon and text, but NovelKeys is currently running a 40's kit extension GB for WoB Hiragana.

Looks like it ends tonight though! Not saying you shouldn't run this, but wanted to bring it up in case you weren't aware. A BoW or N9 40's extension would be cool too!

The problem with the GMK Hiragana 40s kit is it's all icons and so clashes with some of the keys from the GMK WoB set. Unless one pairs it with with icon keys from the Hiragana base set, it just won't be consistient, and at that point ya may as well forego the GMK WoB base set entirely.

will be updating the kit tomorrow probably with 1.75u convex spacebars instead of the current ones as it got confirmed that those moulds exist. also currently considering adding hangul b and a r4 1u modifier, along with possible 1.5u r2 esc for equinox (there will be a new poll for this).

You should message the guy trying to run the WoB Colevrak kit about running these together. He tried contacting the person running WoB Hiragana but they nvr got back to him.

I saw that the wob hiragana GB started yesterday. Was there any luck in getting this kit run at the same time?

No unfortunately I haven't heard anything from the GB runner :(

Oh ****! Please please please run this. Don't wait for my permission!


i guess it was the other way around and he didn't see it in time. the colevrak bois have been trying to get a responce from him but it looks like he isn't very active on here, this is his first and only ic. We all would greatly appreciate you including the kit when you run your kit. also the proposed kit in his ic is incomplete, the colevrak kit that ran with gmk pulse is what we're looking for. thank you in advance for your consideration.

unlikely to be any objections from the colevrak bois. colevrak+ is more expensive but it's also more inclusive making MOQ more manageable.

I don't really see the value in adding the 40s kit to the Colevrak kit, but I'm sure it'll help MOQ so I'll accept it.

Would like to see another color option presented, but that might make the price unobtainable for many.

L9/CR is a great option and is still running for a few more hours with 9009. BoW is also a good choice and should go well with a lot of sets.

Perhaps a poll could be added to see what most people prefer?

They won't be sold together as one kit. GMK offers a lower MOQ if both kits are ordered at the same time so it's beneficial for both the 40s and the colevrak kit. Basically the old person in charge of the colevrak kit is very inactive and unable to run this himself so i've been given permission to run it alongside my kit - win win  :thumb:

I was interested in the 40s kit, but as a ColemakDH user, I want to take a minute to personally thank you for adding this to the GB. It's extra work that you didn't have to take on, that benefits a niche community, so as someone in that community, sincerely, "thank you."

Well said. Now, Iím in for at least one of each.

What are the chances of getting a Ďfní key at row 3, 1.75u?

Hi all - thanks for the support. I just made a poll on the 40s kit asking about some possible keys to add to the set:

probably won't be happening given how minimal had a 40s kit so most BoW owners interested in 40s should already have the kit

Thank you for organizing this.

I'll buy at least:

- 1 40s kit
- 2 colevrak kits

if/when it runs.

I type dvorak and I don't have any 40%s yet - so I don't have strong opinions on the kits.

I'll buy two ergo kits if you ever decide to run those.

Minimal was more geared toward ortho and split spacebar support. I think it'd be good to gauge BoW interest too and if it doesn't add too much to the cost of the kits, add BoW to the already existing WoB kits. GMK usually prefers volume buys and discounts appropriately.

I already tried polling this and around 50% of the people said they would also be interested in BoW however I'll make another poll for this tomorrow just to gauge interest with a lot of newcomers in this thread

I would support Colevrak, but this is stopping me for two reasons:

1. I strongly dislike WoB.
2. I don't want to buy a full base kit just for the alphas.

A few letters more and we would have a stand alone alpha kit I could use with N9 ortho for example. That I would buy despite my dislike of WoB.

Full Colevrak alpha kit in basically any other color scheme would have my money. GL with GB. I really hope it makes MOQ.

Nice, I'm also super interested, and love that Colemak-DH is supported as well, can I pay already? ;D

Edit: Not using it myself, but who knows, maybe one day, but maybe add two extra keys for Solemak (https://kennetchaz.github.io/symmetric-typing/solemak.html)?

Would need only a non-homing F and a 1.5U (Semi-)Colon key for it.

Super niche maybe, but figured I'd at least bring it out there just in case.

"A few letters more" is an understatement.  A standalone Colevrak+ kit would need 40 additional keycaps.  Dvorak uses "only" 24 QWERTY keycaps, the fewest of the alternate layouts supported by this kit.

QWERTY keycaps used by each layout:

The bottom half of this chart shows which QWERTY keycaps each alternative layout uses.  The fully-white columns are unique to QWERTY.

You are completely right. I had it wrong in my head and looked back at the previous topic. It amounted to 33 keys. I guess with the additional layouts it comes to 40.

As much as I would like one, a "full alpha colevrak+++" kit seems out of the scope of this GB, since the 40s kit itself is not a "full 40s kit" since it too needs an accompanying GMK WoB base set.

I'm just so desperate for any Colemak compatible GMK set that I'll take anything. Full kit? Sure. Coleverak alphas only? Hit me with it.

Just updated the post.
TL;DR:
- 1.50 backspace in 40s, kit most likely final
- colevrak kit finalised
- no BoW / ergo support
- renders soonô

Best case scenario, early next year. If not that then some time in April-May. Really depends on whether the geekhack mods will let me post another GB before my current one has finished, as the one I have on right now will only be shipping around April at the latest I believe.

Pondering with my layout for an upcoming project I was actually wondering, wouldn't upside down R4 keys be handy for those who like inverted bottom row keys?

Some 40s have a split spacebar, with some having a 1U key or two in the middle, and in the case of Orthos, most of the bottom row keys are used with one's thumbs.

So perhaps an upside down cast Lower/Raise button and some other options could proof beneficial.

Just something I was wondering, not sure if it's too late for that now, but think about it. (Although it might become a 40s++ by then, heh.)

i believe that would require new moulds, and either way i think that that is far too niche to be a worthwhile addition to the kit in all honesty

I'm definitely in for 1 or 2 Colevrak kits. If a BoW is added, I'll buy one of each. So many GMK IC's just launched in the past few weeks and none have a Colevrak. Gonna try for some KAT GB's that do, once they launch.
Thanks for running this! Hopefully GB is soon??

i'll need to consult geekhack mods about whether i can do another gb before my current one has shipped - it fully depends on that. at the earliest it would be late this year / early next year, at the latest some time around march-april.

Shouldn't be a problem since lots of other people are running multiple GBs at the moment, especially since it's a keyset. If it was a board that might be different.

It's probably too late for this GB, but I just learned about Wide mod.  Adding an R3 ]} to this Colevrak+ kit - just one more keycap - would support Wide mod on any layout that keeps punctuation in QWERTY locations.  (The R2 ' " is already in the kit to support Dvorak.)

Nice, I'm in for all sets.
I think the R0/5 extension kit still needs to be updated though with an R0 Delete key and 1800 compatibility from reading through the old thread.

Also, any chance we could add relegendables too?
(https://geekhack.org/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=99828.0;attach=215081;image)
I think this should be able to make MOQ by itself and the blank relegandable kit might be worth adding too because with so many CR sets I'm sure you can work something out with GMK, should it not reach MOQ.

What's the general sentiment on having an R5 1u Meta icon key instead of an R5 1u Super text key?

Edit: Or have all Super text keys changed to Meta icon keys.

I voted for blank CR relegendables. I have the F-key version in N9 from SkIIdata. They don't look quite right on boards with F-rows directly above the num row, because the R1 num row is actually high enough to block the legends anyway. Only on boards with seperated F-rows do they make sense, and maybe not even if the case is too high-profile.

That can be the case when a keyboard does not have enough separator space between the numeral row and the F-row, e.g. unlike the 1800.

updated the r0/r5 kit with an r0 delete. still open to adding other keys should there be enough interest.

also added two proposed relegendable kits, right now it's looking like i'll only do the blank one if anything but nothing is final.

I'm surprised more people want the blank relegandables given that SkIIdata still has some extra blank relegendables available but the other relegendable kit with F-row pad printed on them has been sold out for a while.

Thanks for trying to make all the kits happen. I'm in for all sets with 2-3 Colevrak kits and I hope both relegendable kits will be offered.

One last thing, would it be possible to add an R3 1.75u Backspace icon key to the Colevrak kit?

GMK WoB Hiragana and the GMK WoB/BoW Icon extension kit ran recently with icon mod support. So there's atleast 700 WoB sets with icon mods from these alone plus more from other previous runs.
Of course a majority of those who bought them don't use Colemak or Dvorak but I think it'd be nice to have the option to go for a uniform icon mod look.

Edit:
An R5 1.5u Function key would also appreciated for the compatibility kit. On WKL layouts they're popular and a lot of recent kits had them included.

Great work on all the kits @tvaro, thanks for accommodating so many esoteric requests, especially in the Colevrak+ kit.

Unless the kits are final, final, what are the chances of adding a row 5 UP arrow to the R0/R5 kit? It's probably as esoteric as it gets, but I have a couple of boards with all four arrow keys next to each other on the bottom row.

I'm not too expectant of a positive answer, I'm almost certain that moulds do not exist for that key. But I have to ask ;)

When are we getting quotes?

GMK is out of office until the 7th, so we've got to wait for that. The reason for all the delay is that I'm helping a friend out and letting him run a little WoB set in the same production run (completely separate to this though), which has added some complications. I'm ideally going for a Q1 2020 GB still nonetheless.

Fellow Colevrak firends,

Ne Colevrak?

I don't know, it's a kit that will allways struggle to reach MOQ. How the IC does the following days will determine if I should open the question about that kit.

If I were to make it, the Typist kit would provide layout coverage for Colemak, Colemak DH, Colemak DHM, Dvorak, Workman, Norman, and Carpalx QGMLWY.

Anyone want to see Typist in Nautilus 2? Machining the GMK tooling for some of these keys might be easier to achieve with a high-profile set like Nautilus 2. Jump to the thread & voice your support!

Fellow Colevrak firends,

Ne Colevrak?

I don't know, it's a kit that will allways struggle to reach MOQ. How the IC does the following days will determine if I should open the question about that kit.

If I were to make it, the Typist kit would provide layout coverage for Colemak, Colemak DH, Colemak DHM, Dvorak, Workman, Norman, and Carpalx QGMLWY.

The tooling shouldn't be an issue. GMK Pulse supported Colevrak with some variants (not sure if it was full Colevrak+) so the molds are already made. The issue is just hitting MOQ and GB runners taking us into consideration.

Imma be honest, I'm not a huge fan of the Nautilus 2 colors, but if Z runs Typist, I'll buy it just to show my support.

Only moulds that don't exist right now are R2 M and R3 ].

Little update: got EU pricing sorted and talking to NK at some point next week to do out NA pricing and a get GB date. For Colevrak+ the MOQ will be 100 so this should be able to make it  :thumb:

100? Oof. Do we have 100 folks/people willing to buy more than one set? I thought Colevrak kits usually sold like 40-50 kits during most GBs.

I emailed drop last month asking when it would be back and I was told it would be in a couple months because of GMK delays. So youíll have plenty of time to get your hands on a set while you wait for this to be produced :)

R0, R5 kit is mandatory for me. I am not sure about the 40s. I have a 50 board that may benefit from it, but not more than four keys. I am not sure if it worth it.

GMK gave us a quote with all of them @ 150, but weíre checking to see if this is right. Iím pretty sure it should be R0/R5 at 150 and the rest at 100. Iíll update the post when this gets confirmed.

A friend will be running another kit in the same production and GMK told him it would mean 100 MOQ - his is being bought out and is independent to these otherwise.

There was a 9009 40% kit ran by TheVan Keyboards in 2018, which has the same colors as classic beige. Maybe The Key Company could run it in the future.

Yeah, 9009 R3 had all of that. One thing it didn't have was a Colevrak/Typist kit. ;)

But also, 9009 R3 changed modifier legend alignment, so a 9009 R3 40s kit isn't perfectly backwards compatible with either previous 9009 kits or other classic beige style sets.

Mind-blowingly, the 9009 R3 kit was also missing a R4/R5 "Fn" key, which is part of the default Planck keymap. There is one render of 9009 R3 on a Let's Split out there and it's comical to see them use 2x "Code" or "System" or whatever keys they had to put on the bottom left side, because the "Fn" key was missing.

The original 9009 ortho kit (I bought one from DixieMech) was far superior to the 9009 R3 one, both in the variety of legends, and accented modifier keys offered. It seems to me there are people who specifically avoided 9009 R3 because of those shortcomings.

Colevrak+ would work for me in classic retro beige.

Either way, with these prices, Iím definitely in for multiple kits of the wob colevrak+ kit, possibly also of the 40s kit too.

WoB had none of these, whereas 9009 R3 just had a few small nitpicks with the keys as it seems - nowhere enough reason to warrant 40s or R0 kits in my opinion.

On the other hand, colevrak+ might be an option but letís see how this goes first. Itís pretty niche so even 100 MOQ might be a bit of a stretch here in my opinion, but Iím confident thisíll be produced regardless though.

I had a jovial exchange with user stoffelduss on another thread, it seems several potential buyers may be put off by the fact that GMK WOB is not available *right now*.

If it encourages people to decide to join, I think it's worth stating that I don't have a GMK WOB set yet, and I'm planning on buying in, because I'm confident that it will become available again, at least on drop.com.

But in case doubt still remains, why don't you go over to the WOB page on drop.com and request the drop (https://drop.com/buy/gmk-white-on-black-custom-keycap-set/talk) (big 'REQUEST' button on the right as you scroll down) - the more requests, the sooner it will be available again, and there's the added bonus of being notified when it returns!

GMK has a pretty big lead time right now (somewhere between 20 and 30 weeks - possibly less with the upgrades they're making though), so I'm absolutely positive you'll be able to get your hands on a set of WoB before these ship  :thumb:

Just ordered my second set, as I had purchased this set when this Colevrak IC first became a thing.

This drop will constantly happen. It's WoB. It's classic and goes with everything. Nobody should worry about not having a full set for when this extension kit drops. Worst case scenario you just wait 4-6 months for massdrop to run GMK WoB again.

Hi everyone - less than a week to go until the GB starts! I added some renders to the main body of the post with the stunning UD_40 which mykeyboard.eu is running soon.

Also - my friend nvmbra is running a kit alongside this which will go into the same production run but otherwise have no real affiliation with this. here's the form, which is open from now already and will be linked in the gb thread too for anybody that's interested. he's buying these out and will definitely get produced - more information is in the form.

I wish that UD_40 had a 2-column wide macro key cluster on the left side. If a version of it like that runs down the line, then I'll buy.
