This looks really neat! Would love to see an angle of it (maybe 30 degrees offset from vertical) to see how the sides play off the form-factor of the top and how much they bow out. (also the top and bottom curvature in a vertical shot would be great)

Also- lay that gasket mounting method on us! haha

Best of luck with this project, looks quite nice so far

Like this, or a more top-down shot?

That's a great angle too! But yeah more top down I guess was my original intent, to see how the sides kinda "frame" the board, thanks!

WKL-only and no spit-backspace/spit-right-shift is a shame but also thankfully saves me from another purchase I don't need but wouldn't be able to resist :D

I am currently discussing final quantities and such with Cannonkeys and Deskeys; the final number will be posted once that is done.

Would ISO be possible?
Unfortunately no, for the layout is locked to the one given in the first post. I suggest buying an iS0 for adding an ISO enter if necessary.

If this goes through, would you make a matching numpad someday? Something like Dolphin, Noxary, or TXpad has done before.

Possibly, but I doubt it would hit MOQ since it'd be a numpad nearly as expensive as the main board itself.

Unfortunately no, since the internal screw mounts collide with Alps housings.

Yes. Both the plate and PCB are locked to the layouts shown in the diagram.

WKL, ANSI only, 2u Backspace. The only configuration option is stepped or full Caps Lock.

It's probably too early, but any plans on running this design again in the future but with different layouts?

Likely someone I've worked with before. I wouldn't trust a random factory to handle the sides.

Possibly, but considering the amount of time it took to build just the side for this TKL, it'll take quite some time to redo it for another form factor if at all.

I would imagine, yes. Many things with QMK are moving towards VIA.

See this for more info

And what kind of Firmware will be running on it? QMK maybe?

Likely the standard QMK + Via Configurator.

Any idea on colors yet?

Silver is likely guaranteed to happen; still thinking about others.

any chance this could be VIA compatible?

Very likely yes.


Also, most of the files are ready for prototyping; just waiting on the Wuhan Coronavirus situation to clear out so the factories resume.

He is correct - a numpad is expensive to produce. If you want it matching the sides and back essentially require the same machining but over a smaller area. Thus the charge for the case is in the same range as the case for a TKL. Then you have the MOQ.
