why worry about pinpoint flex on a brass material plate without switches or caps modeled instead of just using a more flexible plate material to provide flex

Not to mention I feel like even tho these cuts might make the flex more consistent across the board, and the board more flexible, I'd be shocked if the sound didn't change significantly in the different regions.

Nice, simple and elegant.

Input for the design.
Very, very interested for PVD Silver/Chrome Brass Weight and Plate.

Longing to combine them with E-White or Silver and Black Ano Case.

Thanks.

I missed out on the 1st board and I hope I get a chance on this one.  Thank you for ISO this makes this TKL a real choice for my daily driver and a real competitor for the U-80 I have on the way.  I really like the clean lines at the back with the weight but I do wish that your mark or logo was on the board.  I really liked the last board design but feel that this is a little too plain to have come from Smith + Rune.  I will watch with serious interest.
I started with a Sinclair human flesh keyboard in 1980 and it has never stopped.

Because we’re going for a uniform typing feel. Even models with a more flexible material the lower right of keyboards is stiffer and would need to be evened out. At the end of the day, can your fingers feel the difference? Maybe? But we are also in a hobby where people prefer a couple gram differences in spring weights and a few cP difference in lubes, so why not? My original analysis did have switches and PCB modeled in, which caused an approximate 35% increase in stiffness but each simulation took around 10x longer to run. So for times sake I don’t model switches, cap, or caps.

No plans for a hotswap PCB at this time.

Could the black bottom option come with black screws because the silver screws really pop out?

I support a navy option as well.

Have you considered silicone strips for feet rather than round dots in the corners?

We had actually discussed earlier today including both black and stainless screws so you can choose depending on the color base you have and which you like the most for color.

U80-A Buyer here. Just out of curiosity, what color were you interested in? Not sure where I stand on parting with it because I do really like the design, but this board has an ANSI bottom row, which I definitely prefer.

I have the grey version coming but I don't think I will part with it just now.  I might change my mind depending on this board.
