Fusion60 inspired by 2 of the most well known keyboard case, Fjell and Kira. Through out this IC proses Fusion60 has made some drastic change in term of the design. It went from a really high profile to low profile with floating key, and finally to this current case design. Fusion60 is made from a CNC'ed aluminium block for the case and CNC'ed brass for the plate and center weight. The surface is bead blasted and anodized. Fusion60 is available is several layout, standard 60%, HHKB 7u.

I like it, but please offer a version without the branding on the backside. Or maybe put it on the plate?

Besides that I like it. I know 60% aren't that heavy (although my Fjell disagrees) I think the finger cutouts are underexplored  and could be a great quality of life improvement for people who swap boards often; I've gone to strictly USB-C for just such a reason.

Yes, i agree with you.. the logo is too much, tommorow i will revise the design.

What do you think about the tilt angel? Is 8 degree to high?

I think 6 has a better ergonomic balance. 8 is more striking visually but 5 or 6 is more comfortable in my experiences.

How hard would it be to soften/round the edges of the finger inserts? I think a consistent design language of soft curves would strengthen the icon you've used for the plate. Look at the Mira to understand what I'm on about.

I agree about going 5 or 6 degrees. The weight logo is awesome. Maybe add the word fusion on the plate somewhere and on the back of the case put the logo from the weight. Kinda like Koob put the diamond on the back of the Pearl 40%.  ;) Also, I'm not a fan of the weight having a standoff built into it.

My 2 cents. 

Like:
 bevels :) 
 brass logo!   


Don't like: 
"Fusion" on the back 
The holes on the sides (what are these for honestly? Maybe make a real hole and do some RGB stuff with it?)   

Probably in if there will be no holes on sides. 
Title: Re: [IC] Fusion 60% Custom Case
Post by: xondat on Mon, 19 February 2018, 10:16:10
I think the weight would benefit greatly from larger curves on the corners.

Also agree with KaosJ that the "FUSION" isn't the nicest/most elegant font.

In my opinion the only thing setting this case apart is the cutouts. They look nice and provide assistance to lift the board securely. An acrylic insert within the grooves would be cool, but that's more complex and I don't necessarily care if they are ommitted. Underglow is faddish imo

I agree here, the cutouts are what people are going to remember of this board, especially the split design this has. If the sides became acrylic people will call it cheap and gaudy once they see final renders and ask for the solid side back again. I say keep it classic with a twist

I wholly disagree.
I think with bigger bezels and side underglow this could be something stunning. Almost a cross between a klippe and a duck board, but with a more solid look.

Please dont add acrylic for RGB Light. Just keep it simple and minimalistic.

Post by: Vulcan on Mon, 19 February 2018, 17:44:55
The side bevel is just for aesthetic looks. Not much function other than giving a grip to the board.

I will think about adding Acrylic diffuser on the side bevels. To still maintain the good high quality case, i think i will use this kind of Acrylic diffuser (see picture)

For the tilt angel i will post the 6 degree render image and see how it looks. (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180219/ec6627db27da6ad69e84e35c77f58e40.jpg)

i like the side cut out, surely the case signature. i say dont put any acrylic just keep it simple and elegant. also i dont like the post/stand on the brass weight, maybe make a cut out like on the fjell. ohh one other thing is there any possibility to make this a kit with pcb and plate?

I have already remove the fusion logo and did a slight change on the brass cut out. for the angel i think i will stick to 8 degree for now.

Love the new design, looks great! Gives it a little "sleeker" more streamlined and modern look. I do agree with others, brass inserts for the holes would be a great addition or option during the GB :)

Great idea man! But that means the coloring cant be done with powder coating.. because powder coating adds about 1-2mm of paint coat, so after powder coating, the brass insert wont slot in perfectly in.

I can how ever add 1mm-2mm tolerence to the brass but maybe the results is the brass wont fit seamlesly to the case

Oof, forgot this was made with powdercoating. With anodization this would be a good idea, but if it doesn't fit seamlessly, I wouldn't take the risk.

With anodize I'm sure it would fit in seamlessly, the reason i want to powder coat it instead of anodize is because powder coat in my opinion is more durable and have a good texture that match the texture of plastic keycaps.

I have a powder coated case and it remains like brand new even though i carry it inside my back pack without any protection for years

That's true, and I think cerakoting ends up with the same issue as well...
I don't know if acrylic can be forced in with small tolerance differences, but if it can, than that could at least be one option

acrylic is not the best option for making high quality case.. Polycarbonate maybe can be an option

I don't mind the smaller brass weight, makes it more affordable as well.

To make up for the weight, maybe you could "thicken" the bezel of the case? Some people like it T H I C C.

As you have mentioned before, I love the idea that you are looking into putting frosted acrylic panel at the side cutouts. I have to say though, that I do not really fancy the current shape of the cutout. It seems too large and "not elegant" to me. Maybe a better option is to make the cutout smaller (therefore you can use less acrylic) and just provide a very subtle RGB glow at the side  ;)

Definitely will be following on this thread!

Also, will this case come with the option of the plate/PCB as well, or just the case? Asking since I'm wondering whether I should order my PCB+Plate+Switches elsewhere first before deciding on a case.

I see that you are from Indonesia. Maybe I can get my friends/relatives to pick up the case once it's open for GB  :p

Thank you!, yes I am planning to thicken the bezel of the case and for the cutout on the side I have removed it and change to something that kinda have a purpose but still maintaining the theme of the case.


Also, will this case come with the option of the plate/PCB as well, or just the case? Asking since I'm wondering whether I should order my PCB+Plate+Switches elsewhere first before deciding on a case.

I see that you are from Indonesia. Maybe I can get my friends/relatives to pick up the case once it's open for GB  :p

Is your relative also a mechanical keyboard enthusiast? if yes, maybe i know him :)

I have made update on the design of the brass plate, the last design can not be done because it need a large raw material size, which is hard to find in my place..

I don't mind the smaller brass weight, makes it more affordable as well.

To make up for the weight, maybe you could "thicken" the bezel of the case? Some people like it T H I C C.

As you have mentioned before, I love the idea that you are looking into putting frosted acrylic panel at the side cutouts. I have to say though, that I do not really fancy the current shape of the cutout. It seems too large and "not elegant" to me. Maybe a better option is to make the cutout smaller (therefore you can use less acrylic) and just provide a very subtle RGB glow at the side  ;)

Definitely will be following on this thread!

Oh so you are removing the side cutout completely? Was kinda excited for the frosted acrylic/polycarbonate materials to let some of RGB shine though  :(

This case went from something I didn't really care much for to something I will be keeping a very close eye on from now on.

Love the progress from brass weight design to new case design. Looking forward to how this project progresses.
Great job!

Okay the latest revision seems pretty great. It gives the case some characters that are different from others.

Question: which layout would fit this: https://prnt.sc/imoyc5 - YAS or WKL?

Also, any estimated time for GB?  :p

YAS doesn't have 0.75u on each side of the last row.
WKL supposedly doesn't have the Windows key

If you wanted that layout, I'd go for dz60 prolly

To Do:

- Find alternative CNC company that maybe can help produce without the use of EDM
- Find another way to make without EDM and without changing the design

Update :

6/3/18
- Submit the design to CNC guy
- It turns out that the side is very hard to CNC and need the help of EDM machine
- Because it needs to be EDM, the cost of production is almost double the price from the previous Fusion60 case design.

4/3/18
- Total redesign of fusion


Yesterday i submit the design to my CNC company, it turns out that the side needed the help of EDM machine, and that will double the price of production. Right now im still trying to find another way around to avoid EDM machine. if there is no way around that, the only  option is to find the cheapest EDM company or changing the design :(

The estimate price if use EDM machine for poker version of this case is : USD 300 :(

I have to agree with this. Was excited hoping that this case would be sub-200. If you are going through with this I'll sit this one out.

Will simpler design (that won't so much sacrifice the character of the case) be doable and bring the cost down?

To Do:

- Find alternative CNC company that maybe can help produce without the use of EDM
- Find another way to make without EDM and without changing the design

Update :

6/3/18
- Submit the design to CNC guy
- It turns out that the side is very hard to CNC and need the help of EDM machine
- Because it needs to be EDM, the cost of production is almost double the price from the previous Fusion60 case design.

4/3/18
- Total redesign of fusion


Yesterday i submit the design to my CNC company, it turns out that the side needed the help of EDM machine, and that will double the price of production. Right now im still trying to find another way around to avoid EDM machine. if there is no way around that, the only  option is to find the cheapest EDM company or changing the design :(

The estimate price if use EDM machine for poker version of this case is : USD 300 :(

Layout frame looks the same as the hhkb layout, but with a full backspace. I don't see why it wouldn't be possible. The DZ60 the kit comes with is fully programmable w/ QMK, and is a bit of a swiss cheese board so I'm sure it'll be fine. You could also just use a different PCB.

Wow, that's an insane price for a top-mount with a brass plate + weight. The details says it comes with a DZ60 PCB, but if you go with the YAS62 option, will that come with the YAS62 PCB or will you have to get one yourself?

190 USD kit is for dz60, we dont have YAS62 PCB.. but i will try to contact the YAS62 maker and see if we can get a good price

That price... Are you sure you're not losing any money? Can't wait!

Im trying this case as cheap as possible but still maintaining the good quality,, so lets pray i wont lose and money  :thumb:

wow really impressed, in the to-do list it looks like the next step is to get a prototype?

Yep..

I would be a bigger fan of the WKL, HHKB layouts seem a bit saturated right now with the Rama M60 and Tokyo60 boards just having finished up.

There are very few MX compatible True-Happy keyboards, if any. I just can think on the Tina-A. There have been many M0110 style boards, already. Therefore the True-Happy is a more innovative option for the Fusion60.

I never found the true mx compatible HHKBs look that good tbh due to the lack of symmetry. HHKB I think kind of addresses it by placing their sticker on the right side. Of course this is my opinion, and I can respect yours.

Any idea if the true hhkb Tina sold as well as the symmetrical hhkb layout?

Totally understandable. It is a very personal choice. The only point being that the supply for TH full height boards is very limited; but, there is no demand data available. Of course, the Tina-A is in stock at KBDFans. If some needs one she can always get it there, and the pricing is more than fair.

Well, I guess that is what an IC is for. You true HHKB layout fans make your voices heard!

I have no voice in this as I'm likely to get the standard 60 layout haha

I don't need another HHKB MX board. I don't need another HHKB MX board. I don't need another HHKB MX board...

I suppose that what you want is a keyboard with a similar layout to M0110A, right? What are the real problems that a Happy layout causes you?

Probably in for the default 60%. Nice pricing!   

Let me ask something since I didn't follow the post recently:

- Will we see color samples before GB starts? Especially purple. 
- The DZ60 will be the type-c version?
- Brass coated somehow?

I'm sure the brass will need coating otherwise it will oxidize. I have R1 E6 v2, the brass weight and plate were alright when I received them as they were sand blasted. But as time progressed, they are kind of looking dirty. Coating is a must!

Don't care if you PVD or simple treatment.

Since this is still an IC phase, I would like to say that now without the RGB underglow possible, Iím starting to question the aesthetics of the side pattern (the one that gave you so much trouble, which was initially there to allow RGB lighting to bleed through) and whether plain side panel would actually be more aesthetically pleasing.

Thoughts?

Thoughts?

First reason is the side design was made to differentiate my case design from other case design out there. so it' s not made to initially allow RGB light to bleed through.

Second reason I remove the RGB is because the IC results, there are more people like the case to be solid with out RGB.

Third reason is because, adding RGB defuser means adding more $$$..

Fourth reason is I want this case to be manufacture able in my home county (Indonesia). In my country finding a good defuser is hard. I found one.. but its price is to high.

The angled side is a cool feature IMO. I would only be in favor of removing it if it substantially reduced the price.

removing it will not affect the price  ;D

Yep i agree.. finding a new case design is a bit tricky now days..

How's the prototype coming along?

we receive the prototype yesterday, but there is a problem, so we return it to the factory to be fix.

the problem is all of the parts that are made with brass is to big to fit.. I think this problem happen because of the machining not the design. For the prototype we made 2 type of weight, aluminum and brass... the aluminum seems to work just fine, but the brass wont fit to the slot.

make sure the tolerances were communicated clearly, as some manufacturers machine to low tolerances if not specified. Other than that, the anodizing looks pretty clean!

This is how the prototype looks like.. we cant make the sides looks as sharp like the 3d render.. what do you guys think? Should I keep it like that or remove the side design?

this detail seems to be the weak point of design, it could improve imho. however, the look is really nice.

Ah cool. That is totally fine then.

Additionally, maybe for the side design, the top-part of the case can have a curve above the side design part, so that it looks seamless and not like a Ďroofí. Iím not sure if Iím describing this clearly.

This case is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING: DZ60 support, looks, anodizing( I hope), true hhkb, integrated plate ... everything is so good, and it will be about 200$  for the kit!

I would like to see purple ( Tokyo cyberpunk pink*)coating too, but if it wonít happen I will go with the purple color.

I regard this case as an ultimate competitor to Tina. The latter, I suppose is so overpriced. Basically they are sold for 110$ on mechmarket. Damn it. KBDFans have some serious issues with anodizing. I hope your GB will get a perfect finish, donít save any money on it, as anodizing is what makes ANY case unique.

Tokyo cyber pink like GMK Laser pink? Yeaa.. I like that color too.. I'll se what i can do. But to make sure im pictureing the same color like you said.. can you give me picture of the color?

Btw. I heard KBDfans is partnering up with a new manufactureing company.. maybe now they have better results.

Additionally, it gives us to save some money for it as well. There are gonna be few big drops coming in next few weeks.

Do you think i should run round 1 with this current design? :D

I have no problem waiting until you reach a design you are fully confident in.

Would also appreciate time to save up, as there have been alot of amazing gb's already this year.

Good things are worth the wait.

As the others have said, I would say no to running the GB now. Perfect your case to what you envisioned it to be, as "R2" is only plausible when you have a successful "R1".

Delay is never good, but delays are easily forgotten with a good product.

Honestly it's probably worth the wait to get things right, though I'm pretty sure I'd join in on R1 if you did it at the current price.

How heavy do you think is a good weight for a 60% board?

1.5kg for the case alone is ok for me, could be 0.5kg more. There's no too heavy for me  :D
I just don't like the trend toward making place for batteries.

Post by: Yeoh on Wed, 20 June 2018, 11:32:10
60% weight is mostly personal preference. I love heavy cases, but some people will buy a 60% for transportation and they will want a lighter case.

Thats why I like the idea of an interior removable weight for the battery tray. It would allow the people who want a heavier keyboard to add it.

I think 1.5kg is a nice middle ground. Not too heavy, not too light.

All I can say is that adding any kind of RGB to this would probably exclude me from this buy.
The simplicity of this is one of it's main selling points IMO.

Iím gonna say 1.5kg is fine, since Iíll probably buying this for traveling.

I would highly suggest a unibody case if making the seam between the two pieces of the case ďseamlessĒ. There is nothing to worse than having to clean the interior every three weeks and Iím pretty sure a bad seam will trigger off lots of people.

While there is some merit to unibody case, I like this case because the plate is sandwiched between the case top and bottom (case mount). Having an unibody case would require the plate to be tray mounted, which is subpar compared to case mounted plates.

Post by: nickaster1 on Thu, 21 June 2018, 04:11:39
I agree in regard to the tray mounted plate. I personally donít like having rough edges or holes between the layers though. That would suck even further since at this price point, Iíd rather take cosmetic over feels (lesser problem considering itís only tray vs case mount

If RGB diffuser is a must, I have to say the most you should do is the side diffuser (between the top case and the inseams). Going for a full acrylic/PC layer sandwiched between the case top and bottom would increase cost and ruin the aesthetics imho.

I have fix the design issue for the top case, hopefully now it will look better then before. I also have add RGB diffuser to let the RGB light of the DZ60 PCB bleed trough.. this will also help to highlight the side geometrical design so it would be more appealing  :thumb:

What if you don't like RGB light?? don't worry, I have design it to make sure when you turn off the RGB light, you wont even notice that there is a deffuser on this case. I design a little geometrical shape that is placed to block the diffuser from being seen, but still will let the RGB light to pass trough when it's turn on.

What do you guys think?

Thatís clearer. Is this the only design out of a few that is approved by your CNC miller that you told me a few days ago?

Also, from what I understand from the last three detailed renders is that the diffuser is located as a part of the case top yes? However your previous renders seemed to show that the case top is separate from where the light bleed through (i.e. diffuser seems to be part of case bottom). Is this just part of render problem or am I seeing something wrongly?

Great renders btw, thanks for listening to feedbacks.

I Submitted 3 design but only 2 was approved by my manufacturer. the other design i dont want to post it here because i just dont like the design of the diffuser.

yes the diffuser is part of the top case. in the render it looks like a part of the bottom case maybe because there is a small section of the top case that is extruded to the bottom case.

I put myself as a most likely.

I'm assuming this will be the latest DZ60 with USB-C?

Also waiting on final weight with brass.

I have fix the design issue for the top case, hopefully now it will look better then before. I also have add RGB diffuser to let the RGB light of the DZ60 PCB bleed trough.. this will also help to highlight the side geometrical design so it would be more appealing  :thumb:

What if you don't like RGB light?? don't worry, I have design it to make sure when you turn off the RGB light, you wont even notice that there is a deffuser on this case. I design a little geometrical shape that is placed to block the diffuser from being seen, but still will let the RGB light to pass trough when it's turn on.

What do you guys think?

Sexy renders bro. Just wondering, could you highlight the diffuser part exactly? Not entirely sure where is the diffuser located at from the render.

This is the slot for the diffuser

With the diffuser in place

When Assembled
(https://preview.ibb.co/c1zrHJ/jhrtehgfb.jpg) (https://ibb.co/cdqyxJ)

Thatís clearer. Is this the only design out of a few that is approved by your CNC miller that you told me a few days ago?

Also, from what I understand from the last three detailed renders is that the diffuser is located as a part of the case top yes? However your previous renders seemed to show that the case top is separate from where the light bleed through (i.e. diffuser seems to be part of case bottom). Is this just part of render problem or am I seeing something wrongly?

Great renders btw, thanks for listening to feedbacks.

I Submitted 3 design but only 2 was approved by my manufacturer. the other design i dont want to post it here because i just dont like the design of the diffuser.

yes the diffuser is part of the top case. in the render it looks like a part of the bottom case maybe because there is a small section of the top case that is extruded to the bottom case.

assuming you use standard dz60 not special one, dont think theres enough led to let the light bleed bright enough. maybe on the lighter color case the light might bounce but on the darker color may not. but well see when the prototype arrive..

heres my thoughts, if the pcb are align with the cutout then the light would not bleed, the pcb will block the light from going through. if the pcb is slightly higher than the cutout its possible for the light to bleed if more LED are added to the side of the pcb and somehow the bottom case can bounce the light i.e lighter color cases. please correct me if im wrong.

This definitely makes sense, and he said before the cutout was part of the top case. To maintain the design, Iím wondering if it would be possible to move the cutout to the bottom part of the case and not look too different.

Building on this, yes I agree that if the PCB is in line/lower than with the cutouts, then of course no light will bleed through. Increasing the height of the case bottom (or thinning the top case - not recommended though) might help.

Or, another way to mitigate this problem is to have a ďdeeperĒ geometric design at the sign so that it ďcuts inĒ more and allow bigger space for light to bleed through.

EDIT: **** I just read Zombieís comment and realised, his proposed idea makes more sense. Try putting the ďcut outĒ at the case bottom instead. Having the cut-out at the case top makes zero sense as technically it will be above the plate, ergo above the PCB.

Also Vulcan, would you mind posting the prototyped top whereby the light failed to bleed through? We might be able to help you more with better visuals.

Post by: gr4v3m4n on Wed, 04 July 2018, 01:37:23
hereís my proposed idea, instead of thinning the top case or putting the cutout on the bottom why not adding the top case height and thinning the lower case. this wont change the overall design significantly...

The pcb is already above the cutout.. I think if want to add RGB lighting like the latest render I would need to make dedicated SMD LED just for the light bleed

It does. The new PCB design is just to see how well the side glow is with the extra LEDs at the side. The case will still be compatible with aftermarket 60% PCBs like DZ60, its just the underglow wonít be noticeable (which some of you prefer).

Tbh I would be happy if the board would skip the RGB part and just comes with a solid side. That would also make the board compatible with all pcbs which is a big feature of 60% boards imo.
That's what I thought. But I'm biased: if I see a keyboard with leds I loose interest quickly because it looks like a toy or gamer thing.

The board is still compatible with DZ60.. the PCB that i made for this case is just an extended version of DZ60, if you dont like the RGB light on the side you can choose not to buy the FUSION PCB and just use dz60 PCB..

2nd Prototype with bigger brass weight and hole on the side to let RGB light bleed trough

Please note:
- the gold plate and wight on this prototype is made with Aluminum and than anodize gold.. the real product will be real brass weight and real brass plate.

Mini USB wont fit

I could make it compatible for mini USB, but there will be a big hole/gap if you use USB Type C.. and since USB Type C is the future.. so this case will only support USB type C

I disagree, Vulcan already mentioned that the finish would not be as perfect if mini is supported.

With such a beautiful case I definitely prefer less input type flexibility and better finish/look :)

The finish product will have abit bigger cut out though.. since i just notice that the cutout in the prototype also wont fit certain type of USB Type C..

So probably it will fit a smaller mini usb..

I try to make this case fit all mini usb type c but only certain type of mini usb (maybe slim version)

Like this :

Yeah small tolerances for slightly bigger USB C hole might be a great idea.

Hello mate,

I am so hyped to see that you have come so far with your ideas. I myself wanna build a wooden 75% case, my relatives have a company where they have all the wood material and machines but the only thing I lack on is 3d skills to model my case. I know you have a lot to do yourself in your life, but I would be glad if you could help me out :)

So how do I design a keyboard so a 75% PCB fits into my case? Like how do I know where the screw place must be placed and how deep a case must be so the keycaps are not to low or too high...etc

How did you do? Any tips for me? :)

Have a nice day!

Hai Everyone!

Im very sorry for staying quiet for the past weeks, and I'm also very sorry that the GB did not started last agust as promist.

the fusion60 case prototype is looking really great, but we had some problem on the PCB prototype, this is what the PCB prototype looks like.

(https://preview.ibb.co/d6oGnz/mmexport1533360478324.png) (https://ibb.co/fdPp7z)

we reposition the dz60 RGB to the side of the PCB.. but unfortunately this method does not work well the light does not bleed bright as expected

(https://preview.ibb.co/dPFkfK/mmexport1534151835526.jpg) (https://ibb.co/czN97z)
(https://preview.ibb.co/bEvJ0K/mmexport1534133463370.jpg) (https://ibb.co/deotZe)

The problem is because the placement of the RGB SMD is too close to the bottom case, the bottom case is blocking the RGB SMD. we thought this problem can be fix easily by making the side hole wider.. and yes it made it brighter.. but still too dim. We believe we can do better.

From what we see..The only way to fix this is by making the RGB SMD position higher from the bottom case.. and since making the top case higher is not an option so we decided to redesign the PCB.. this is our plan

(https://preview.ibb.co/d0PBLK/mmexport1535768487694.png) (https://ibb.co/k5n97z)

What do you guys think? any ideas or suggestion?


Btw.. here is some photo of the latest prototype

The case as usual looking amazing...
The shine for the rgb issue :

- perhaps try this on a sliver anodized or light gold anodized case ? ( If you can bead blast it again and reanodize it)
I think the side LEDs would look dim on darker colors.

- perhaps position the bottom so that the light falls also on the desk, this might be a good effect even if there is not a lot of light on the facet design.

- make LEDs brighter ??

- personally for me the LEDs don't matter, pcb swap is bigger for a standard 60%. But I know a lot of folks want the RGB on this board...

Really appreciate you taking the time to get your visit right rather than jumping in to it. Me at least, I'll wait for this board, because it's perfect !

As of now, Vulcan is looking to keep it like the prototype (without acrylic/polycarb) as the light is already dim enough even without those covers.

Im not going to use any acrylic or polycarbonate.. because the concept is to make the light bleed trough.. not diffused

it's not the color, i have even tried to put mirror stickers and still did not affect much. The LED is at the brightest when i tested out, i also have talk to the pcb engineer and he said that there is no RGB LED brighter then that.. the only LED that is brighter that that does not support RGB, only white color.

thank you very much for being patience, please bare with me :)

The anodized aluminum is probably absorbing a lot of the light, especially since not all of the light goes straight up, but to the sides as well. Have you considered adding light pipes to the LEDs? I think that may be your best bet.

getting the effect below in real life might be difficult - I think everyone will understand that though.

Have you tried using a through hole LED right on teh opening, perhaps behind a diffuser with reflective/mirror tape on one side ?
Or maybe something like this :

https://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/high-powered/vollong-3w-rgb-high-power-led/899/2214/ (https://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/high-powered/vollong-3w-rgb-high-power-led/899/2214/)

Thats too big, but perhaps an equivalent LED ?

getting the effect below in real life might be difficult - I think everyone will understand that though.

Have you tried using a through hole LED right on teh opening, perhaps behind a diffuser with reflective/mirror tape on one side ?
Or maybe something like this :

Thats too big, but perhaps an equivalent LED ?

I got a PM from vulcan on instagram and apparently there's 3 prototypes, each of which needs 2 weeks to fix the design and one month to manufacture.

Also, the sideglow design can only be made with special tools only certain manufacturers have.

Finally, to make the board as affordable as possible, the manufacturer needs to finish their major projects first before working on vulcan's.

Vulcan, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong about anything.

Does this mean this project would be on hold for about a month and a half or so? I don't mind, just don't want to keep my hopes up that it might be next week and I'd be broke from spending too much haha. At least I could budget out some finances if there were a certain date announced

At best, yes, but am certain it is going to take longer.  I could very well be wrong, but the way I interpret it is that each prototype takes 2 weeks to fix, and a month to manufacture the next batch would mean a total of ~10 weeks.  Additionally, it is possible that there could be new problems with the next batch of prototypes, so we would have to go through the process again if we want to fix it. 

The factory needs to finish their other projects, which we have no idea how long that is going to take, and if it is only what is currently in production, or if there is a queue.  However long that is going to take, it is hopefully shorter than the time it takes to make a good prototype.


Finally, delays can happen for pretty much every possible reason and could take an unknown amount of time (points at espectro).  Personally, I am willing to wait for as long as it takes.  The way that the lighting is implemented is completely unique from what it seems, so I think it is important to have it as close to vulcan's vision as possible.

It literally says right in that last picture that the alignment is off because it's not screwed together. the top is just sitting on the bottom.

Thanks!

If anyone is interested in an ortholinear layout, Shensmobile has started a GB for a 60% ortholinear PCB and plate. He'll even offer to make a custom plate for top-mounted boards, like the Fusion60, for only $10 more. All he needs to make this happen is the DXF file so he the machinist can have exact specs. during manufacturer.


Volcan, would you be able to send Shensmobile this file? If you need his contact info, I have emailed you as well.

1. Will you have an option without the plate? I would like to just buy the board if possible.

2. Will you be posting the dxf file of the hhkb top mount plate? I'm looking to get a copper plate made that will fit this board

3. Will you offer a dark gray color option?

Edit: Adding a question 4: Will you be offering a round 2 if the first round goes well?

1. well no, it only comes with the DIY kit and Case only (with plate include)
2. yes, i will post the DXF file on the GB threads
3. Only titanium grey, like the second prototype
4. Most likely no, because after this i want to focus on Mataram. but we will see how hype can this case go..

We have already gave those hex code to the factory, but till now we haven't got any respond, we will let you know the progress  :thumb:

Is it just going to be those 6 colors in the image with the hex codes? Will there not be that beautiful gray color that you posted on your Instagram a couple days ago?

Vulcan - can you confirm :

- colors : the colors in the image with codes (has champagne gold) or the colors you mentioned in the OP text ?

- is this still limited to 50units now that kbdfans is running it ?

Colors : we are still working on it, so we cant confirm yet, but most likely it will be like in the image (has champagne gold), if possible add dark green and titanium grey

- Yes for now still limited to 50 units.

1. The prototype brass is PVD, but when the GB launch it will be sandblasted.

2. We have no sample of purple at the moment, im sorry  :-[ .. the factory said for custom color such as dark purple, dark green , champagne gold and red, we need to make at lest 20 prototype..

but these are the reference that i will give to the factory for the anodizing color

The colors look great! I still want the gold, but the purple and the green are my favorite shades of those colors as well! I wish this was not limited to 50 units !

Any indication when the buy will go live ? I really donít want to miss this !

around this month or next month, if all goes well,

right now we are waiting for the factory to fix the minor issue (sandblasting the brass weight).. if the factory if the factory finish sandblasting it fast then the GB will start as soon as possible.

I have some questions.
1. I know the brass will be sandblasted for the GB, but is it going to be raw or coated?
2. When is the estimate date for the GB? It seems like everything is ready.
3. Is it possible to do render of grey fusion60 with hyperfuse r1 or r2?
4. Would there be white for color option? (I guess this is not going to happen)
5. Does the estimate price of $190 include shipping cost? or just the price of keyboard itself?

Hai,

1. I can't answer that now, since what i meant minor adjustment is the sandblasting proses and treatment.. right now it's still in proses and im still waiting.

2. After the sandblasting sample finish, KBDfans will determined when it will begin.. shoud be anytime soon.

3. Yes, no problem

4. No, it will require more time and more sample. I think this IC has taken too long

5. Shiping cost is not included.

sorry if this has been stated before, i haven't read through the whole thread. Does the hhkb plate support a split space bar?

this one looks really good for the price. going to try and grab a champagne one  :p

Post by: dr_unconscionable on Thu, 03 January 2019, 20:27:48
I think rather than the plate, it's the PCB that would be the problem. As far as I can tell the DZ60 PCB only supports split space configurations with 1.25-1.25-1.25 mods on the left and 5 1u mods on the right (configs 9 & 10 on the diagram in the first post). With 1.5u blockers on the case, you'd be limited to layouts 13 or 14, neither of which fit a split space. I don't know whether any non-standard spacebar sizes could be made to work in a split configuration with this PCB.

Also curious about this. If it's MAO, I'd definitely be interested. But iirc you can't anodize white. It'd have to be MAO or cerakote or powder coat.

Thank's for letting us know. I have no clue what electrophoresis are, is it better than anodizing? and if compare with MAO or ceracoat?

Wait i'm dumb, apparently electrophoresis is what i call e-coating (?)
If so, from what i know, it is better than Powder coat and actually even better (harder) than Anodization, even stronger than the thicker/harder anodization.
Feel free to correct me if i'm wrong, that's what i remember from the past reads during the Melody96 GB. 

On the counterside (afaik) e-coat is transparent or can be done in few colors, so not sure how this white can be e-coated? (maybe something to make it white,e.g MAO plus e-coat?)

50 units per case, not color, after collecting order, than next step is manufacture

May you please confirm some things before GB starts:

-Brass pvd yey or nay?
-Final colors same as before? 

- yes, will be PVD coated to prevent rust or tarnish
- the final color is same, expect maybe the gold will be eliminated by KBDfans, reason is because i already have too many color and the factory have no sample of the gold, im just afraid the gold is not like the gold im looking for.

yes, white is in option, it will be electrophoresis, and from my research, it's better than anodize because it's more durable and better than powder coat because it still maintain the feel of aluminum..

the color option are :

Anodize :
- Black
- Grey
- Silver
- Dark Blue
- Dark Green
- Burgundy
- Dark Purple
- Champagne Gold (Still to be consider by wei from kbdfans)

electrophoresis :
- White

2. When is the estimate date for the GB? It seems like everything is ready.
3. Is it possible to do render of grey fusion60 with hyperfuse r1 or r2?
4. Would there be white for color option? (I guess this is not going to happen)
5. Does the estimate price of $190 include shipping cost? or just the price of keyboard itself?

Wei posted 30 of EACH color so 240 units total. I guess he did post it early but he increased the amount almost 5x? I dunno if that's accurate or not...

Edit: Wait that can't be right... the count resets for each layout so that's 720 units total. What?

The counts definitely seem messed up. Vulcan said total 50 units. So I'm guessing that somehow the inventory will deplete after 50.

@vulcan - have you see the dark purple color ? is it similar to https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/product-images/massdrop-x-tokyo-keyboard-tokyo60-keyboard-kit/FP/NBc70NDnSlKWdMLHL5gi_AI7B5598-copy-alter.jpg ?

ooh... should I get a second one ?
Any real boards for color comparison on the burgundy ? Super Dark, almost brown like CA66 or something lighter/brighter ?

Post by: mog_genius88 on Sat, 12 January 2019, 00:56:44
Any word on why the count is so high? It's great if Vulcan decided to sell more than 50 but I don't want this to cause issues later if this is an error.

The way its worked every time I've ordered from KBDfans is you just select the free shipping and it ships fast anyway (if wei has said it does ship fast).

I bought a grey WKL :)

I guess that was the better way to word what I was trying to say. Blah...waking up at 2am to a surprise drop brain .

The free option listed was generic and did not length of time or anything.

Iíve placed a few orders and they have shipped (left from KBDfans) very fast, but my concern is time in transit, tracking, insurance, getting lost, etc. I am also supposed to have some replacement screws headed my way from KBDFans. Shipped on an ďepacketĒ according to the FB message. That was at the end of December and I still havenít seen them .

I just paid the $20. I donít like spending extra cash, but Iíve learned over the years, itís worth it when it comes to shipping.

It fits most standard 60% PCB. the only difference is the lights on the side.
The bundled PCB will have lights on the side, and when  you build it, you need to break these off, mount them and connect them for the shine.
Once you break these off, the PCB is like a std. 60%

Ok. The image on KBDFans looked different than the DZ60 PCB, and I'm not just talking about the side LED breakouts. Must just be a different color

At first I thought they just opened it up so that there were plenty of all the options to sell 50 of any combo, but looking at the numbers, it looks like there are really 30 of each variant up for preorder/presale.

I see theyíve updated the info about shipping too. It seems like things are developing as they go. I know KBDfans is a good company to deal with so it doesnít bother me too much, but it does make it a little hectic from a consumer standpoint.

The counts aren't accurate either. I bought a white HHKB layout and it is still showing at 30 units available.

Is it confirmed there will be more than 50 made? I recall Vulcan not wanting to do that large of a GB before. I did see that kbdfans put an end date to the GB at 2/12/19 if that means anything. If not, I think there's only one spot left as the little pop up tab on the right says that 49 are already sold.

Honestly I don't think they will have any issues they have done some pretty big buys with really good quality control. I am thinking of getting in on this before the buy ends. That green is sexy to say the least same with the gold and maroon choices.

From the limited experience, the videos Iíve watched, and the research Iíve done, they always seem to have a pretty solid product and improve upon things when they fall short.

I donít anticipate any problems. Itís just that things have played out totally different Han they were told to us. Thatís always going to cause consumer anxiety...especially when youíve got people tied into a 2-3 month wait to see exactly what they will or wonít get.

There is a bit miss communication from me and kbdfans,maybe they didn't get my message about the 50 limitation.. and this is my mistake not to confirm to them about 50 limitation

Im very sorry for this, im not trying to do scam, I will try my best to stop collecting order.

yesterday i have already message them about the 50 limitation but haven't got reply.. today i will try again.
