Interested

A point about the plate design:
The fixed layout has split-backspace and the plate still offers a 2u backspace slot.

May as well be a hotswap PCB if the layout is fixed.
Wishlist: 1) hotswap gasket mount; 2) nice Alps blank caps; 3) Hipro Iris with adjustable tenting; 4) CNC POM case
More
Wishful-list: 1) All POM; 2) We order from keyboard-layout-editor.com; 3) Usable Trackpoint MK
IBM M13 black
IBM SpaceSaver II
IBM KPD8923 Trackpoint
Choc mini Gateron black
PLUM 84 'Topre-clone' 55g Korean dome
HHKB Pro 2 HasuBT
[It's not I don't like ISO, but I need the HHKB backspace... only ~90WPM, in love with Emacs, and Lisp]

The plate design and keyboard layout diagram implies that either 2u or split backspace is possible.  @aeryxz can you confirm this?  Maybe post a pic of the pcb?

You guys have a beautiful design here and I am really enjoying the weight design also.


I don't believe you will have any issues hitting MOQ that's for sure.


GLW everything, I would love to add one of these to my collection.

Mike

We won't have a problem because we set the MOQ and have bought out all the units. It will be instock when available to the public. This model works better for you as WE take on the risk, and is far more customer friendly than group buys. Keep in mind we are only 3 people doing this as a hobby part time, and still manage to raise the capital required for such a project...
Maybe i'm wrong but when you say "It will be instock when available to the public", that means the is it first come , first served?

Super interested in this board. The space grey is a dark grey or a light grey?
The different mounting styles is a super nice feature.
Also 150 it's a really low number, there is a LOT, and i really mean A LOT of interest in this board, maybe after first batch (and all the winners have recieved their boards) you should made a GB with a 24h window, or something like that.
Also is there a discord to follow the process?

The layout is fixed with 2 exceptions of the caps and split backspace.

No hotswap since the team prefers soldered components, maybe later down the track.

We can always machine more later on. 150 is a lot for an instock (no gb) item, and it's our biggest project yet, but I'm sure with time we can scale up.

Yes, waves of stock will be up on our vendor website, keyboard treehouse.

It's a darker gray.

@aeryxz how's the FnF/prototype batch going?

yeah, the influencer red is really gorgeous!

Same batch as public - they're doing through annodisation at the moment. So hopefully will start shipping out in the next month I'm hoping.

I may have missed this somewhere, but we'll be notified days before the GB correct? I'd imagine It'd get grabbed up quickly given the number of slots.

Update: Annodisation is almost done.
We're getting to the finish line soon(tm) - it took a little longer than we wanted but that's the situation of things in 2020.

Once they're ready and packed, they'll reach us in Sydney. We'll spend time doing our internal QC and making sure that we have some boards we're happy to sell and send out.

The first wave of units will be the FNF GB - these will be shipped out first.

The next wave of units will be on the keyboard treehouse website. We'll definitely post information about release schedule when we have them in stock. We'll do multiple waves of times for releasing units, so that at least one of the windows will be around your prime time. We like doing waves of releases as it helps us manage and pack things at the rate we feel comfortable with, and it allows people multiple chances to try snag one. We'll put a limit of 1 per person for now.

We plan to have 150 units for instock public sale, with additional accessories. We'll also have accessories in sale from waves. The standard kit should give you everything you need to toy around with your base line experience - and don't worry if you miss out on accessories, we'll fast follow with additional accessories if there is a demand for it.

We'll probably do another round of PCBS with additional layout support, plates of other various materials (POM is a new favourite of mine, using it in the EXT65) and accent colours.
Please join the keyboard treehouse discord (keyboardtreehouse.com/discord) to keep up to date, and be part of the constellation conversation when it happens, as I'm keen to find out what people like, and what accessories are most in demand.

Until then, hope everyone has enjoyed the naevy switches (R2 will be soon, just making minor adjustments based on the first round of feedback), and EXT65r2 PCBs (I loved seeing people make their own cases for this great layout) - and we'll have more news soon(tm)

It's a very standard 65% layout, so it'll be basically the same size as most other 65% layout keyboards - about 13" wide x 5" front to back (about 33 cm x 12.5 cm).

FINALLY! I really NEED a blue one in my life. Typically not into blockers on 65s, so this styling is perfect for me. I'm assuming we can order additional accent pieces to mix and match them when the time comes?

They will have a limited number of units available for purchase right away, unlike a typical GB where you place an order and wait months for the board.

Noob question for you guys.

In the video, the gasket mounted method shows the gap between the top aluminum piece and the bottom aluminum piece when he compresses it to show the compression.  ( @ 5:34)


Does that mean if mounted in gasket form, the keyboard will always have that gap when the build is completed?

That's just to show how much the gasket gets compressed by the case when you screw the top and bottom together. Bigger gap before compression = stiffer feeling plate.
