Feel like that's just the way it has to be these days with the massive influx of people. Only a couple of boards as or late have been open ended group buys

If you add a wkl version, definitely keep the regular version. I know, people are so hard to please.  ;)

Thanks for the heads up! I apparently set it to expire after one day. Fixed now!

Looking into making a 6.25u WKL version, so that I can put it on the same plate as the standard layout.

FYI: this layout is called "70%". (Actually, it is one of several layouts called "70%")

Is 1.5mm PC plate durable enough?

Designed in Norway, and no ISO support?! No support for stepped Caps Lock?!
I'm happy to see that the USB port is broken out to a separate PCB.

Eh. 70% is such a rare category. I like this description better. Most 70% I've seen scrunch everything together. This def has the TKL shape. I like it as a describer.

Filled out the IC form a couple of days ago but keep coming back to look at the nice renders! I hope this lilac colour will make it as an option for the GB...  haven't dared get a purple board yet but that colour looks mighty nice in the render at least.

Haha. Yeah. My response was just because WKL is such a personal preference and way more subjective. Don't think there's any definitive reasoning why WKL would be better. It's not like it significantly saves more space. It just removes 2 buttons.

As for layout compatibility, in the first run with prototypes we're only looking at standard ANSI and ISO layouts.

Reviewing comments and answers on the IC, and I'm overwhelmed with the positive responses! I'm so excited to hear that a lot of people are happy to see this layout being made. I'm really passionate about making this keyboard work well and sound beautiful and I'm very eager to get started prototyping.

As of now I've rebuilt the case from scratch, for the sake of cleaning up my files and making edits easier. I started the design not really knowing how it would end up, and so I worked in a way which turned out quite messy and edits were pretty complicated to make. I made up everything from scratch again, starting from the newly made plate design, with all the layouts incorporated into one plate.




This plate will support:
  • ANSI
  • ISO
  • Tsangan (WKL)
  • Split spacebar
  • Split backspace

The hotswap PCB will only be available in ANSI and ISO since the hotswap pockets take up a lot of space on the PCB and can't be overlapped.

Note: If you do notice something wrong with my plate/layout logic do let me know. I'm primarily an ANSI user myself so I'm not too familiar with other layouts.

Other updates:
- Front height adjusted to 17mm
- Rubber legs will be strips, not standard circular bumpers
- HHKB top unfortunately ruled out in the first round, but high possibilities that it will be included in a future run if things go well!
- WKL alternative tops will be an option

I think I also will change the weight to the outside of the bottom, exposed with the logo engraved. No fancy peeking through or merging of parts though. The screws will be hidden on the inside of the case.

The weight will be an option you can opt out of for a slightly cheaper case.

Things still in process:
- Back design, trying out various changes to make it look a little bit more interesting. If it doesn't work, I'll go with the clean design as is.
- Indicator LEDs design/look, as well as badge/name engraved on the top.
- Room for foam/dampening on the inside.

Thank you so much for your kind words and support!! I'm sorry if I haven't replied to your comment, I try to answer the ones that I can. Just be persistent if you have any questions that go unanswered, and you can also still join my discord server dedicated to this project!

I love this layout!  It really is perfect. I disagree with those calling for a wider bezel beside the direction keys. I prefer the thinner one as-is.

I know it's early, but do you plan to work with any third party retailer on this board? I like this keyboard, but there's too many unfulfilled one-man-show group buys out there. With such a clean and unassuming board, I wish someone would just stock it like KBDFans does with the Tofu boards.

I don't see much value in the designed internal weight though. Either make it visible for aesthetic, or just make it optional to reduce price.

Definitely agree with points two and three. I'm fine with the bezels either way.

One of my first thoughts was how would it look with a bit more space between the arrow cluster say same thickness as the bezels.
Just out of curiosity..
but the one thing i would like to see is this board at KBDfans.. or at least a eu proxy..
for the weight i would save that ÄÄ so it's more affordable to all of us.
You made such a clean design really good looking now keep the price as low as you can without sacrificing to much..
Good luck and my compliments on the design.. i'm truly impressed

Have bin looking at a couple of other active options.. like the Primatech, the Hiney tkl one, the EO-87..
And when i ask myself which one would you want to see on your desk .. ?? it's this one..
But i do have to admit i like the Hiney side cut-outs or what you might call those..
Makes it easier to grab the board..still really nice board.. and that's coming from a  65% addict..

Very good job indeed with the plate and layouts.
You should need to consider making a different plate for alps, (I personally wouldn't mind to pay extra for that) because the switch holes bigger than 1u do not work properly with ALPS.

ALPS switches clip onto the corners, and when you extend the hole to allow for different places (for example in the split backspace option) the switches only have 2 corners to clip onto, and they end up crooked. The holes for the spacebars with stabs to them are fine enough although you should know that the switch has nothing to support itself there, so it's like "PCB mount" in there. Keeping the hole short in the vertical axis provides alignment, so those positions are not an issue for me.

Summing it up, it would be best if you made a different plate for alps or at least cut the small inside corners in places where switches would only support on one side. If you need I can give you more info and examples via PM :)

I see, i havenít thought of that, mostly because I havenít used alps switches yet! It makes sense too, seeing as most buyers most likely use MX to have separate plates, especially since plates arenít exactly cheaper to produce the more
plates you make, unless you manufacture them
differently. Good input!

I love this so much, especially that it is something no one ever seen before! Just a thought though, I kinda like thinner outer bezels, makes the board even cleaner. And, can you maybe fit some sort of logo between the key clusters on the right? Thought it would look great! External weight would also look great, I have to agree.

Thank you for your comment and support! Unfortunately due to the mounting, the outer bezels has to be rather thick, since it has to make space for the screws as well as the whole bottom wall. It's part of the whole design at this point :)
Aside from that I'm working on a logo to put on the top part, as well as moving the weight to the external side, but keeping the screws on the inside!

I love this so much, especially that it is something no one ever seen before! Just a thought though, I kinda like thinner outer bezels, makes the board even cleaner. And, can you maybe fit some sort of logo between the key clusters on the right? Thought it would look great! External weight would also look great, I have to agree.

Thank you for your comment and support! Unfortunately due to the mounting, the outer bezels has to be rather thick, since it has to make space for the screws as well as the whole bottom wall. It's part of the whole design at this point :)
Aside from that I'm working on a logo to put on the top part, as well as moving the weight to the external side, but keeping the screws on the inside!

The thicc-er the bezel, the better =)

I see, i havenít thought of that, mostly because I havenít used alps switches yet! It makes sense too, seeing as most buyers most likely use MX to have separate plates, especially since plates arenít exactly cheaper to produce the more
plates you make, unless you manufacture them
differently. Good input!

You can always offer cheaper materials for ALPS plates, or, as I said, I'd pay a bit more to have a proper plate. As I said, if you need some help regarding that just hit me up via PM and I'll give you an insight.

Is there any chance you could add the capability to use 2.25 - 1.25 - 2.75 split space, as well as the current 2.75 - 1.25 - 2.25 split? I prefer having the larger key on the right as I basically only use my right thumb to hit space.
