Hi friends, welcome to the Interest Check for the next keyboard in the HEX series, the HEX.6C.
The 6C is our attempt at filling a very distinct void in the custom community, the full-size layout.

Prototype Images
252367-0252369-1



When we were conceptualizing our next product after we ran 3C, we decided to provide the community with something that had been missing for quite a while, A Custom full-size Keyboard.
As you can see, the renders are of a southpaw full-size, as I personally feel that it is the most convenient full-size should the user put in the effort to get used to the left handed numpad,
but we're also thinking of just doing the traditional full-size layout. Do help us solve this dilemma by filling in the IC form :)


241968-2

There had been some custom full-sizes in the past. However, the prices and the limited quantities available meant that there wasn't really a widely available
custom full-size solution in the market. This is the reason we decided to bring this layout and design to the IC stage instead of more popular(as of recent times) 65% or TKL layouts.
However we're still evaluating interest in this board and we might end up bringing something else into IC if this doesn't do as well as we want it to.


241533-3


Our plate mounting this time is a little different compared to the one we had in the 3C, where we just isolated each mounting point. Since we're going with a more "traditional" gasket-type mount, we opted to fully gasket mount our plate with a giant rubber band completely wrapping the plate. Ensuring that the plate will be COMPLETELY isolated from the top and bottom case, making zero contact with metal during usage.
As for the material for the gasket, we're thinking either silicone or poron as of now.

UPDATE: We've finalized our gasket implementation. Here is the new exploded view of how it would look like
252878-4



We're thinking of offering Brass Knobs as
The default aluminum knob will be anodized to match your case colour. of choice.

241535-5



As for plates we're looking at offering two layout options: Southpaw Standard and Southpaw Mirrored

If you can keep it close to the estimated pricing, count me in! I'm not a huge fan of full sized boards, but the fact full size customs are so few & far between + this being southpaw sells me on it. GL with this guys!

100% in for a left numpad.

If Polycarb version is made I hope I can put my hand on it.

Realy great work, simple aesthetics. On the quality side I will see it with my Hec3C.

Here's what I think:
- Southpaw numpad is a must for me (I'm left-handed and have been craving something like this for a long time)
- F13 seems a bit unnecessary to me. It makes the first row look too busy
- Please consider a winkeyless option

Not my size but maybe I'm going to build one for my friend, so I'm interested! I can't understand how you can find the F13 key "unnecessary", I mean... it's a full-size? It has a ton of unnecessary keys? I think it looks much better with the F13, personally.

Another thing, I have some Cherry OG keysets that I use with 84-key boards, so that means the numpad caps never see the light of day. Being able to put the WHOLE OG keyset into use in a southpaw form factor is what dreams are made of <3

Just spitballing an idea, but if you separate the plate for the numpad from the rest, you can achieve a "southpaw" numpad and "normal" numpad just by flipping that plate over (PCB might be a bit swiss). I would also like to see options for 1us where 2us exist on the numpad.

Other than that, it's a welcome option that really isn't paid any attention too. And that price tag looks good, but I hesitant that it might be un-achievable.

6.9 degree typing angle

nice

That's a pretty interesting take on the numpad plate. I'll definitely take it into consideration and think about how to make sure that doesn't affect anything in the board. It could open up the possibility of us offering both left and right sided top pieces and pcbs.

As for the 1u where 2u's are, we'll implement that when we design the PCB.

IMO Silicon and nitrile are the only relevant proper gasket options. I would ignore poron completely if I were you. Plate design looks pretty good for a change, if there were a fixed tsangan plate would be even more epic.. GLWIC!

Yes definitely. I would like to have it ported to VIA as well if possible :)

Point taken! I'll definitely be looking forward to the prototype.
As for the fixed plate, it's highly unlikely that we offer that this round.

As an ‘either way’ sorta guy about F13 seems like it should be a poll.

What if the pcb supported mirrored numpad but the plate didn’t, plate files were made available, the mirrored folks can get their own, and those of us who are the sort to want a spare plate get them from the mirror preference folks who don’t want the stock one? SP-111 did that w the numpad...

No promises regarding CF plate but the plate files will be released post-gb so feel free to cut your own.

Hahah we've all got that one friend who really must have THAT numpad eh?
Based off community feedback it seems that for now this will be run in the southpaw variant

It could but there might be issues. I still recommend soldering your switches as you'll have a more solid-feeling keyboard.

You'll just use a regular key instead, I'm guessing.

Really love to see a fullsize, and with southpaw numpad! How fantastic!  ;D
Would consider this as recommendation for a friend, and that means iso support would be greatly appreciated.
Looks great, good job!

The way the renders are makes it seem like there is a designated cutout for the knob.

I guess it depends on the knob radius, but the pcb can support both a switch and an encoder, so don't worry about it too much.

I'm hoping no knob is an option. And if all versions absolutely have to come with a knob, I think a better position for it would be the first key on the top left so you can rest your handle on the table while turning the knob. in it's current position you'd have to keep your hand and arm floating above the keyboard the whole time.

apart from the position of the knob, I love everything else about it.

Agreed, if the knob is going to be a fixed option it should be in a better spot. It's awkward to have it in the current place. Your hand would be on top of the numpad and other keys.

I'm excited for this to become available, but I have a question about the pcb and some of the features I'd like to see kept in the design.

This is probably an unpopular feature, but are there any plans to support LED lighting for each key and also fro things like Caps Lock, Scroll Lock and Num Lock?

Knob -  I'd prefer if there was an option for no knob/dial. I'd like to see the 4 extra keys on top of the numpad so maybe they could be used for media keys or reprogrammed for other uses.

F13 key -  I support the inclusion of this, though I'm curious what people will use it for in maybe executing macros or something.

I'm new to the custom keyboard scene and I really love the southpaw numpad design you've made. I also support the option for an inverted numpad :)

With regards to the position of the knob, everything is still largely in design phase and things could change. However we made the choice for the knob to be where its at in the current design as we feel that it would be easier to reach without having to move your hands from the main alpha cluster as much.

For those of us that do our own coating, it would even more cool if we could get a raw off-the-mill version that hasn't been coated/anodized.  Can't wait either way!

We have no plans for this at the moment, however we'll look into something like that in the future

As of right now there's no plans to support RGB or any specific lighting for the keyboard, other than indicator lights for caps, scoll and numlock.

My idea for the knob is for it to be used as a volume wheel, and the top 3 keys to be use as media/macros.

I've been severely missing a numpad, but enjoy the space on the right side without it, so a southpaw is right up my alley. Definitely keeping an eye on this as a potential endgame work keyboard.
I love the variety of knob options being offered, and that they'll be low-profile, which is a lot more aesthetic imo.

I've been fantasizing something similar to this board, with the southpaw numpad and rotary encoder above it.
Albeit:
- Given no need for the extra 3 keys above the num-pad (except to show off artisans), it's instead an OLED screen
- Right side is 65/75%, slimming it down a bit, as I never use Insert, Pause, Scroll lock, Prt Screen
- Potentially split
But that's just my fantasy.

Your dream is the Ext65. That was limited to 50 on hand units at 500 usd. I believe three protos were offered in an auction style as full kits and went for nearly 1k.

I currently own a Ducky one, which is 108 and love the 4 extra keys : calculator, volume mute, up and down. The calculator was key to my purchase as I'm an accountant and hate traditional desk calculators (much faster on my numpad). With the rotary encoder I'll have 1 or two keys to figure out ( of the encoder is push sensitive as well, then mute is handled)

I went with left, assuming southpaw layout. My reasoning is that it would be easier to handle the knob from the side (left lateral), where there are no keycaps or otherwise to interfere. Otherwise I imagine you'd have to use a pincer move.

Ext65 is close, but it has no rotary encoder, nor OLED screen. Nor does it have the F-row which I like, despite only really using f4, f5, f6 and f11 ever.
A calculator button would be useful, however I can map that to another F key, and the rotary encoder should be able to handle volume/mute.

Thanks for your feedback! We've also toyed with the idea of a OLED screen near the rotary encoder, but in an effort to keep its price low we decided on the more economical option as for now. Perhaps in future revisions or a more premium version of this board, you might see the OLED screen make an appearance :)

We feel that rotary encoders add a nice amount of utility to a keyboard, since it can be used to solely control volume and mute/unmute while taking up approx 1u~ of space. Something that you'd normally need 3 keys for. Also in the poll ran in the IC a majority of users felt that the rotary encoder would be a welcome addition to this design :)

I personally love where the knob is currently. Makes the design much more interesting to look at, and I agree that in the long run this is more comfortable then having to reach all the way out to the left of the board. It's a matter of adjusting to muscle memory.

Maybe a taller knob would help mitigate the problem for some folk?

Regardless, this is a must buy for me. Southpawed fullsize with a knob on it? Oh yes please.

make the knob taller won't mitigate the problem because the problem with the current knob position is that you're left hand will be floating above the keyboard. which will get tiring if you're using software where you have to scrub/scroll frequently.

the reason some have suggested it be placed at the left instead is so that your left hand can rest on the table while you use the knob.

I'd rather grab it from the top with the tip of my fingers than hook my shoulder into an awkward angle to wrap around and reach the knob.

I get the argument to have it in the corner, but again i just think the trade-off does not outweight having keys around it.

I guess the compromise would be to make it take up a switch slot and have us choose where to put it, but alas

I'm interested. Make a custom piece that could convert a square to circle for the knob, so it can still be flush with the top.
That way, a customer can put it on either side. Sure a simple adjustment on the PCB wouldn't be that hard.
This would also be perfect for people who do not want to use a knob at all. Two birds...

I'm so on-board for this keyboard.

I'd rather it be knob-free, but it's not a deal-breaker if this board has a knob.  This layout looks perfect for me.  I'd use it mostly as a TKL with a bunch of macro keys on the left (for programming in Visual Studio).  I also do enough Excel that I'd have the numpad transform into a real numpad occasionally.

EDIT: Please keep F13.  I'll make use of every key.

Been trying to use my numpad with my left hand, found that it's not so bad. So I'm warming up to the idea of a southpaw board.

If you can keep it at the target price of 250-300, with mirrored keypad and knob on left, I'm in.

Ticks the right boxes for something I've been looking for (fullsize, southpaw, proper spacing for nav and numpad).

Not keen on the encoder. If it's for volume control, I prefer to use a DAC or amp to control volume rather than the OS for quality reasons. And if it's for something else like searching/scrolling, it's in an awkward place with the hand floating above the number pad for an extended period. The mid-board positioning strikes me as form over function, it looks better there at the expense of long term usability.

Looks awesome! Not sure about the knob so a knob free option would be great :P

+1 

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one that is not into that trend.

It’s already full size. Personally it’s cleaner to be knob free. Keep it simple  ;)

This keyboard checks all the boxes for me!

As a person working (occassionally) with spreadsheets, the numpad is nice to have and the southpaw layout means that I don't have to move my hands from the mouse to they keyboard back and forth.

So what's the results of the knob poll? Has that been finalized as well?
We're evaluating that when we get the prototypes in, estimated to be in a few weeks. As of right now the poll is a very very even split.

Any date and vendor for the gb?
Date is not finalized, expect it to be late this month or early next month. We would want to fulfill our existing 3C orders before starting something new. As for vendors, there's only us for now.

Confirmed southpaw is a bit of a downer for me, any chance a normal full-size unit would be produced?  :(
For this round, due to us wanting to keep costs low we've opted for one layout, however the future is yet to be decided.

Nice!  Any chance we can hear what the board will sound like?
When the protos come in I'll build one and upload the soundtests :)

have you ordered any protos yet?
Yep! We're expecting them to come soon. Once we're satisfied with the final design, then we'll start the gb.

We weren't confident with the Navy we received for 3C, so we would like to take some time to fine tune it before re-releasing the colour

After much internal discussion, we've decided to do something unique with the GB.
After the quantity of 300 is hit, we'll keep the page open for 30 more seconds so people who have slower internet or want to order add-ons can do so without having to rush.

Can you share the image of the gasket that to be used? are they off the shelf or proprietary.
If its proprietary do we get extra if extra pcb+plate is purchase?

I'd be interested in this too, please?

I just hope the knob will move to the left side of the board.

Are you worried it's hard to use on the right? Far left seems very far away, and might make the board look unbalanced.

Just theory crafting here since I've never had a keeb with a rotary encoder.
  If it was placed on the left corner, you'd have a lot more free space to actually touch and turn the knob. There you could use c. 50% of the circumference of the dial (plus from above). Where it's placed on the renders currently, it looks like you'd kind of have to rely on the 25-ish percent to the "north" where no other keys get in the way. I suppose it also matters how tall the knob actually is. If it's taller than the surrounding caps then it won't matter as much.
It's possible I just have fat fingers

I was on the fence until I saw the numpad layout options and the inclusion of split right shift and split back space 😁😁😁 Full size boards never looked so appealing

I'm all ears on the GB date mate.

SoonTM. Could be next week, or this weekend if everything on our end goes well. We're getting the prototype built right now


Can you share the image of the gasket that to be used? are they off the shelf or proprietary.
If its proprietary do we get extra if extra pcb+plate is purchase?

We're gonna be updating the thread soon with some changes :) chances are you won't need extras for it

Are there any pictures of the bottom or is it just a plain aluminum?

I'm regretting not joining the group buy now. I was concerned about incoming clash flow that worked itself out after all. Will there be extras?

In love with the southpaw with that design. If there are extras how can I be sure to get in on it quick?
