[CLOSED] SP-111 - Split Southpaw Keyboard
« on: Sun, 17 November 2019, 13:59:36 »
230319-0


I originally created this keyboard as a personal project earlier this year as a keyboard with a layout that would work best for me in CAD and was only planning on getting one made for myself and a friend but when others heard of the board either via me or my keyset renders for GMK Night Runner they would always ask about when they could get it. So here it is, after a bit of work getting the prototypes made and ironing the bugs out, I introduce my baby the SP-111!


What does the name mean?


It has a ton of meanings to the name that most don't even realize.
 - SP: Split, Southpaw, Special. 3 meanings tied to the 3 ones in the name.
 - 111: The numbers from my username. Original meaning for the numbers in my username is my b-day, November 1st, so I had to incorporate it somehow.
 - 111: Wait, there is more meaning? Yep! The 3 prototypes (once again representing the 3 ones in the name and the 3 people with them) have a layout that has exactly 111 switches (one of the layout options).


Why is this board laid out like it is?


 - Southpaw to allow you to use the numpad and mouse at the same time (helpful for CAD and other data entry)
 - Split to allow placement in a comfortable manner for long sessions of data entry or work in general.
 - Right side layout to maintain the functionality of a full size in a much more compact manner. Hence the 1800 style arrows and vertical nav.


What mounting style is it?


 - Sandwich mount, with the plate visible around the edges and locating tabs for alignment.


What are the specs?


 - Board has a typing angle of 7 degrees (yes it is like a normal board but split, no tenting available unless you plan on drilling and tapping the case...)
 - Left side weights 1.49 Kg (3.29 lb) and the right side weights 1.3 Kg (2.87 lb). This is without pcbs, switches or caps, and there are no weights, just case and plate.
 - Board interconnect is Type-C, I am not a heathen!
 - Board connects via Type-C as well.


Is the buy limited or unlimited?


 - Unlimited of course! I don't like to run buys with a max for the sake of making it exclusive.


Will I be able to buy an extra set of pcbs?


 - Yep! You can buy extra pcbs on the side if you wish.


Will I be able to buy extra plates?


 - Yes you can!


Will the plate files be posted so I can make my own plates?


 - That is the plan, not sure exactly when I will post them (probably around delivery time?). This means you can do mirrored numpad plates and different materials to your liking just know that for the usb ports to align properly 1.5mm plates need to be used unless you make a spacer below the plate.


When will I be able to get my SP-111?


 - It will most likely ship in Q2 to be safe as it entirely depends on the quantity ordered for the lead time.


My favorite feature?


 - The smooth slope on the bottom side, which is really nice to touch when either picking it up or just thinking.

230382-14


Layouts:


 - Before anyone asks, mirrored numpad is not supported on the plates due to the issues it brought to the table for that corner of the board (basically a super flex section that would feel horrible compared to the rest of the board). It IS supported on the PCB though if you want to get your own plates cut.

 - And as a side note, you can mix and match the bottom row options, they don't have to be both the same spacebar size, each side layout is independent of each other and the included plate supports 2.75u and 2.25u options on both halves. 3u will require a different plate just because it made the plate a bit too light on material to include. So if you feel like a 2.25u and 3u you can go for it (if you get a plate made).

230344-15


 - The following are PCB only to not have the plate be too weak and flex more than intended.

230346-16


Noteable Changes:


 - I added mirrored numpad to the pcb so you can use that if you wish to get a custom plate made
 - I added ISO support to the plate, just was on the fence for a while but decided why not?


Colors:


 - Black with sandblasted brass plate.
 - E-white with sandblasted brass plate.
 - Blue with a sandblasted brass plate.

Prototypes:


 - There were 3 prototypes made, so here are a few pictures of those for you to look at, they are an older variant of the layout so ignore that.

On a completely unrelated and slightly trivial note given the overall cost of the board: the interconnect cable.  How short is "short"?  What color will the cable be?

Undetermined atm, but likely 1ft or so and probably black? You can replace it with a custom cable like one of zaps if you wanted to (both ends type-c) as it only uses the 4 wires for USB2.0.

Just had a VE.A clone with connectivity issues: maybe I moved the thing around too much, I dunno, but it's got me overthinking. If my SP-111 interconnect gets disconnected, does that bother the connected half? Any benefit to using the sort of disconnect similar to apple's magsafe so I don't inadvertently put tension on the USB-C?

BA111, you're using this board, what do you think?

I am waiting on the second pcb revision to come in to check on this. I changed quite a bit around from the v1 so don't want to comment in case it is different for some reason. They should be here soon.


Update:


GB goes live tomorrow, hope everyone is excited!

I signed up for a Geekhack account for this GB (long time lurker though).
Excited (as are others Iím sure) for this!

Some questions if you donít mind -

- Is the finish different texture-wise in the three colors?
- would one of the three be less prone to scratches, or perhaps reveal less if scratched?
- what color would you pair the upcoming GMK Dracula with haha

Good luck with the run!

Welcome to GH!

1) Black and blue are both anodized so they will have a typical bead blasted and anodized texture. The E-white will feel different because it is a different process, it is an epoxy coating via electrophoresis and is somewhat similar to anodizing, but not at the same time.

2) E-white can be tougher from what I have heard, but I have no evidence to back up either way.

3) Black or E-white, both would look good but have a different look to them. So personal preference.

Is there any chance of posting the plate file a couple weeks before shipping the boards? That will give people time to design and get custom plates made before they get their boards.

Maybe, I haven't thought of an exact time, just a general timeframe of closer to delivery. But I have thought about doing it so people have time to get a plate cut for when the board arrives.

Just cleaned up the off topic discussion that took place here.  It really didn't get too heated, so don't worry about missing any of that spicy drama - it truthfully didn't belong and was distracting from the GB at hand. 

On with the buy!

Your board looks fantastic! Having a hard time finding gmk sets with a r3  page up and down. So far it looks like Olivia++ hihihi keys will do. Could you possibly get a render of the SP111 in white with Olivia?

I added ISO support to the plate, just was on the fence for a while but decided why not?

ISO layout is listed on TheKeyCompany as "PCB Supported Only" though. Did the vendors receive this update?

Sorry for that, Hopefully they do it soon. The other proxies are up but I guess they haven't yet for some reason. :(


Update:


So far we are at 49 on just TKC, no proxies included which is really awesome! Just under a week and happy to see where this board has gone.

As for proxies, Daily Clack and zFrontier are both listed but Candykeys unfortunately hasn't yet.

I have 2 questions. Will this support Millmax sockets specifically 0305? Also I'm a tad new and was wondering what exactly layout wise you mean PCB supported only?

In regards to millmax 0305 I know they are slightly smaller than the holes in the pcb not sure if they will work as I don't have any on hand to test with so I don't want to say yes.

And PCB supported only means the pcb has the switch locations but the plate does not have a cutout to support it, meaning you need a custom plate for those. It was a way to give more support for those that wanted it without making the plate too light on material.

It should be soon, I can't control when they launch things so it would always be smarter to ask them as that is their end not mine. So if they still don't have it up today, ask them.

Alright this is a total shot in the dark but I'm going to try anyway. Would anyone be interested in doing this with me. I buy a white board, you buy a black board, we each switch one half to end up with a board like this. https://www.instagram.com/p/B6LaJrRA_nM/ If anyone is interested let me know.

Iím also interested in the millmax sockets. If you didnít mind iíd be willing to buy (and have shipped to you) some sizes so you could let us know?

(I donít know if sharing info like addresses via PM is discouraged. I could also PayPal you a few bucks and you could just order some yourself. For science!)

Huh, didn't notice that sorry :(. Well probably too late to add it but best bet would be to order that separately from TKC.

Hi,  I noticed that the EU provider (CandyKeys) doesn't offer the PCB on its own, is there an option for EU people to get that? (maybe i can just order it from TheKeyCompany)?

Huh, didn't notice that sorry :(. Well probably too late to add it but best bet would be to order that separately from TKC.

OK, thanks. Will do

Iím also interested in the millmax sockets. If you didnít mind iíd be willing to buy (and have shipped to you) some sizes so you could let us know?

(I donít know if sharing info like addresses via PM is discouraged. I could also PayPal you a few bucks and you could just order some yourself. For science!)

Got confirmation that 7305 will fit and since 0305 are only 0.001" larger in diameter I believe they will as well.

Final Day!!!


Final day to get in on this board, closes at 9PM EST so make sure to get your orders in before it is too late!

Over 130 ordered so far (I believe proxies aren't included in this total even) and very happy to see the love this board has received from everyone.

I still have one confusion over the plate vs. PCB layout support. The KLE picture that shows "PCB only" has the 2u numpad "0", "Enter" and "+" keys. Does this mean the plate doesn't support 2u numpad keys? The plate looks like it would support them just fine, and many renders have 2u keys (though there are different looking plates in some of the renders without keysets).

The plates support "normal" numpad 2u's but mirrored numpad (2u's on the left) are only supported on the PCB.

Update:


For those who would like to get a different plate, the prototypist carbon fiber buy is open and the ANSI plates are one of the offered options.

Or if you would prefer a different layout, the plate files are now up and you can modify them to the layout you would like.

Plate files: https://github.com/blindassassin111/SP-111_Plate_Files

Still waiting on final numbers from proxies before I make the post with the update.

Just had a VE.A clone with connectivity issues: maybe I moved the thing around too much, I dunno, but it's got me overthinking. If my SP-111 interconnect gets disconnected, does that bother the connected half? Any benefit to using the sort of disconnect similar to apple's magsafe so I don't inadvertently put tension on the USB-C?

BA111, you're using this board, what do you think?

I am waiting on the second pcb revision to come in to check on this. I changed quite a bit around from the v1 so don't want to comment in case it is different for some reason. They should be here soon.


Update:


GB goes live tomorrow, hope everyone is excited!

Sorry for reviving this old post, but I'm getting really excited for this board. I, too, am concerned about what happens if the slave is disconnected from the master while the master is powered on. Any insight?

Nothing bad will happen at all, it just removes that half of the board. The master works fine with or without the slave.

1 further question - with the sandwich mount, is there any way to isolate the plate vibration? I was thinking like silicone o-rings, but not sure how or what diameter to use.

Thanks :)

Only issue would be the USB ports have to lineup with the cutouts and there isn't a ton of room for misalignment. So if you used o-rings you would have to crank it down to compress them and then the plate would probably slap the case. I didn't design it for o-rings to be added on so I wouldn't recommend it but if you want to play with it do so at your own risk.

Hmm good call-out. I think I may need to cut some foam to put between the plate and PCB, hopefully that will minimize some of the referred vibration.

I believe it is still on track, I don't have pics I can share of the PCB atm but I think it should be from what I know of where everything is atm.

You don't need to clip any switch to work on my PCBs, they always have 5 pin support, but this does not have in switch LEDs.

On discord this morning, the estimate was:
1. After M0lly
2. 3 weeks to ship to TKC, another month to QC and get em out, so maybe like October

Add in my corollary, which is ďall revised estimates are also optimistic themselvesĒ and I think weíre deep into Q4. Honestly Iím just glad it sounds like this year.

TKC has closed their product specific Discord channels, including the SP-111 page.
So all of the discussion there about compatibility, accessories, all the excited chats and questions answered are now lost.

This came like a week after they committed to providing weekly updates on the product (because of inordinately extreme delays).
Now we get a single line grouped into the rest of their products that says this:

"SP-111: No update."

To be honest I'm pissed. They have over 60k dollars cash locked away for a year now, they may as well have invested it and are profiting off it for all the clarity we are being shown.
Can @BlindAssassin111 or anyone who knows TKC staff ask them for some real accountability here?

TKC can’t get their fulfillment center Prep Kanga to get switches shipped out in inside of a month to where ordering from Singapore/Ilumkb via singpost is the same price and now faster to Houston, and they have been nothing but apologists for terrible service to where I wouldn’t believe much from them anyways. If they were going to show accountability, it would have been on fruit switches months ago vs coordinating boards w multiple teams/factories.

Logistics are hard, harder during Covid, and decent people occasionally sign bad deals. Ok. But what I really abhor is the passing of bad information: keyreactive saying KAT sets this month are gonna ship in 28 weeks when sets from months ago are currently 40 weeks and they haven’t been on time yet, Drop saying GMK Kanji was going to ship in September at the end of March when the state they ship from was closed down due to Covid and every GMK set known to man was months delayed, etc.

I don’t think TKC knows much concrete and can give an update, and if they did, it would be from some unreliable source up the supply chain. I’m not sure we even know anything’s ever been cut and not anodized and that’s not just an excuse as there aren’t even pictures of the intermediates, and if TKC had those pictures...seems like they’d have posted them? If we ask for more updates, my worry is we’ll be fed the same nonsense about progress as before, it won’t be true, and we’ll be worse off than we were with no recourse other than the one people should already be taking, which is: when you can....buy elsewhere.

I’ll offer you this: I’m happy to bet actual money my 3 SP-111’s won’t be in my hands in 2020.

While I 100% understand the frustration lets not turn this thread into a TKC hate thread please, lets keep that other places as this isn't TKC's board but mine.

I know as much as y'all do and I wish I had more information or pictures but I don't unfortunately. I wish I had better knews, but as you probably heard about the anodizing update causing all boards to be remade, that is the last info I have as well.

If it's your board, and youre running the GB, and the vendors only collected money for you, it's time to show some primary data: screencaps, pictures of intermediate products, terms of contract, copies of your weekly emails to the manufacturer asking for updates.  Our only recourse is chargebacks to our vendors and we'll need to assess whether sufficient due diligence is being done.

There's no chance this board arrives in 2020, and that's fine; I'd just like to know the buy actually exists.

You misunderstood my statement a bit, and I could have worded it a bit better so I take the blame on that.

When I said
Quote
lets not turn this thread into a TKC hate thread please, lets keep that other places as this isn't TKC's board but mine
I was meaning that this isn't the place for the TKC specific comments, lets keep this about this board only. I say this because I just don't want this to turn into a tkc **** thread and have all of that drama in here. If you want to ***** at them, do it in their discord server or via customer service so they can see it as they don't check this thread at all.

Now I would love to show pics of the boards, but as I also said, I have as much info as you do. I don't have contact with the factory and don't get updates on where things are on a regular basis. I won't go further into this at the moment but that is where we stand right now.

Don't think that I am not waiting myself, cause people seem to forget designers get to wait longer than anyone and that I would also love to have my board but guess what? They are being remade so I get to wait longer as well, fun times right?

EDIT: And it is MY board, TKC doesn't own the rights and they didn't help design any part of it. So...

The Key Company discord is where updates would be posted. Itís still in transit, and I donít think thatís terribly surprising given the delays in international shipping. If you ordered from TKC likely a few more months.

From what I understand they are just waiting for some of the stuff to arrive, as parts are slowly coming in but not enough to actually ship anything yet. So we are not that far off, just not sure on an exact date/timeline atm.

from discord last afternoon. Anyone else got a blue one? This one seems fairly nautilus nightmares (which, honestly, I'm pretty good with). The pantone in there was the initial color.

I was initially gonna re-anodize one of them, but then I wanted to see gmk matrix on the blue...

You are not alone, I love the color though it is an error unfortunately. TKC is handling it behind the scenes to see if it is a one off issue or stems further, which I also don't know given I haven't seen the blue ones in person.

Also just got my black sp-111 and can't wait to build it!!

I'm the same guy as in the discord that had the problem. Love the colour (it's more vibrant in person than in the photo), but annoyed that my calm depths won't go with it and that i'll need another keycaps set if I am to retain this scheme. Definitely will need to wait for a run of Nautilus Nightmares again, or just have Blindassassin come up with that USPS nightmares that he has lined up...

Getting around to put the Sp-111 together, but running into a small issue.  When I plug in the pcb, windows is finding it fine, but in VIA it is not discovering it.  Keytester works though.  Am I missing something?  Do I have to upload keymap or something?

Yes, I think that is my issue, I'm sure I'm doing something wrong.  I eventually found the hex file in qmk configurator and was able to compile everything.  But when I try to flash in qmk toolbox, it says there are no devices available :/.  The only boards I've built, I've just plugged them in and VIA finds them right away so I guess I have been spoiled.  I also tried to save the json file and upload through VIA, but no dice

The file in qmk configurator is not going to be VIA compatible. You have to use the firmware from the link I mentioned. To flash with qmk toolbox: run qmk toolbox, connect your keyboard, press the reset button under the pcb(sometimes there is key combination to reset the pcb but I don't know if sp111 has that) and then qmk toolbox should see it.

Ya, I was a bit confused at first.  I haven't had to use QMK in awhile.  I figured out my issue though, it looks like I was using the wrong hex file, not sure where I found the original one but it wasn't the viktus one...  Once I used that, I was able to flash it fine and now I can see everything perfect.  Thank you for the help!!

The reason was via wasn't merged until after production of the pcbs finished unfortunately so the firmware preloaded wasn't compatible. But the QMK firmware is VIA compatible, you don't have to go to via to find it. The only change is a vendor ID and product ID that is known by via hence it needing to be merged on their end but the QMK firmware has the IDs in it to allow it to work.

Files generated through config.qmk.fm are not VIA compatible due to how config.qmk.fm works, it's a limitation of the way it's written. Straight-compiled QMK doesn't store keymaps in EEPROM, nor does it bake in the path through the HID descriptor allowing VIA to rewrite the keymap using raw HID messaging.

While it is true that you don't have to go through caniusevia.com, it is the easiest to get to repository of VIA-enabled firmwares that are known good.

I have a peculiar issue in that I cannot remap my backspace. Period.
I downloaded and flashed the viktus_sp111_via.hex and got the board working in VIA. I can remap every other key without any issues whatsoever but for some reason I can't remap the full backspace which is permanently bound to 'Delete'.
I can change it's mapping in VIA but it has no effect on that key at all. It continues to operate solely as 'Delete'.
Any ideas?

You need to set is as split backspace layout and set both keys to backspace.
