[IC] J-01 Rev 1 (Isolation Gasket 65% with Macrokeys)
« on: Mon, 20 July 2020, 13:09:14 »
The J-01 Rev1 is the next revision in the series of boards. Historically there has been a prototype of the J-01 back in late 2017 and a small run of the same prototype in early 2019.

Since then the board has been back on the drawing board / butchers block to improve the board and I now feel like itís ready for a more public outing via a Group Buy. Disclaimer up front, I fully appreciate that this board is not for everyone, and some people will enjoy its features, whilst others wonít; but Iím hoping that the people who do like its design will appreciate me bringing it to the community.



Changelog (changes from the original J-01 to rev1):
   
  • - Completely re-drawn from scratch & updated to a Ďseamless designí
  • - Removed Brass mid layer (removes weight, reduces cost, improves sound)
  • - New PCB by Flex utilising the Ai03 unified USB C daughterboard
  • - New Gasket shape but utilising the same Gasket system only now with adhesive on each side to improve assembly
  • - Revised pen rail to be screw in over magnets to make more secure
  • - Two tone case as standard to create a visual distinction and highlight stylistic choices
  • - Option for 8 macro keys (+logo) or 10 macro keys
  • - Logo depth changed from 0.5mm to 0.3mm
All these changes were based on feedback from the prototype round and further experimentation with the J-01 and J-02, as well as marking a natural transition.



Design Philosophy:

The design is based around the principle of allowing sound development within the case, through the use of a carefully designed acoustic cavity, but with enough mass and dampening (via fully isolating gaskets) to ensure a clean and crisp note.

Visually the design is a modern take on vintage keyboards, specifically inspired by the pen rail on a Model M, and the Macro keys seen on the vintage Commodore boards Ė but in a more current style. This leads to chunky bezels, solid pen rail, and reduced base with the majority of the mass under the Alpha keys to improve sound. Grey base and accent pen rail to accentuate the main body, without drowning it out. The front lip and side profile is designed to give the board a look of one that is floating, without drawing the eye. Optional Brass pen rail to add a touch of elegance.



Prototype:

A prototype is on hand and requires only minor amends that wont impact the quality of the board. This includes revised plates, PCBs and Gaskets. You can review the build stream for the board here and pictures later in this thread: (as of 20/07 @19:00 UK time the VoD is still uploading...)



Colours/Options:

   Case Material -  Aluminium

   Case Colours:
  • Black top (grey base and pen rail)
  • Red top Ė Pantone 490 CP (grey base and pen rail)
  • Blue top Ė Pantone 533 C (grey base and pen rail) (please note this is the same pantone as the Aegis Navy option)
  • Limited Edition E-white (top and bottom case) and Brass pen rail
  • Optional Brass pen rail can be added to any order as an extra

   Plate Options:
  • Carbon Fibre (Fixed ANSI or Fixed ISO)
  • POM (Fixed ANSI or Fixed ISO)
  • Plate files will be made avail immediately after the Gb for buyers to get more customised options or materials to their liking

   PCB/Hardware:
  • QMK / VIA Compat
  • ESD protection
  • Compatible with ANSI / ISO
  • Torx screws used for case and daughterboard
  • USB C as standard



Layouts:

   - PCB:

   - Fixed ANSI Plate

   - Fixed ISO Plate



GB Details:
  • Date: August Ė final date TBC
  • Where: http://www.prototypist.net
  • Volume/No of Units: TBC depending on IC feedback, likely to be 100-200 if the demand is there.
  • Price: TBC depending on No of Units Ė the greater interest, the greater the economies of scale and the lower the price I can achieve.


Feedback Form:

Please share any feedback you may have here:

Thanks:

   - James (AKB for CAD design and works, plus listening to me drone on for hours)
   - Flex for the PCB re-design and production and renders
   - Nathan Alphaman for some stunning renders
        - Everyone who has shown interest in the board and convinced me to share it wider than just the proto run.



FAQ:

Q: Will you add X colour
A: No Ė the colours are finalised, although a few people have asked for specific colourways as a commission post the GB being successful

Q: Will you add X layout support
A: Most likely not, the PCB supports more than the plates will support already and all plate files will be open

Q: Will you do an unlimited GB
A: No

Q: Can I have Render files?
A: Yes Ė these will be posted publicly on Prototypist.net prior to the GB

Q: Hotswap?
A: No

Q: Discord server for updates?
A: sure https://discord.gg/qm944aC although all updates will be posted here as well

First J-02, then J-01. You have to do a J-00. Otherwise my series will be broken.

I watched the stream yesterday. The board looks spectacular. Anyone reading this, if you have an hour or so, checkout the stream. The attention to detail and subtle changes from the original to Rev 1 are really nice.

Actually, scratch that. I will make it much harder for me to get one. :P

sadly the middle weight is gone.i think it was what made this board unique :(
anyway can you compare the weight before and after removing the weight?
i suggest you could add an option for brass pen rail as upgradable, not extra only
still, my wallet is ready!!!

I'm hoping it wont be a struggle for anyone. I really want to set the number of units right for this one.

Yes - extra PCBs will be avail

I'm really thankful for that - the OG J-01 owners are a rare bunch

Definetely in on the white one  :thumb:

There is any chance for a brass plate? I basically don't like plastic

Quite a few people fancied a no-logo version :D If there is enough interest I'll offer other plates; but the files will be open either way.

sadly the middle weight is gone.i think it was what made this board unique :(

Sorry, but it made the board silly heavy, more expensive and sound worse :(

I'll look at making the brass pen rail an upgrade vs an addon before the GB

Love the pen rail. I wish more keyboards had them.

Me too - huge fan of em

i use pilot hitec C or signo DX's. Both in their plastic case and the j01 has held up fine. Im sure if you use a brass pen case or a Ti pen case and you are super rough with it, you could wear spots in or cause some nic's. but nothing that wont look better with some break in. it will be hard to have super pristine but also used daily with metal pen cases + white. though e white might offer a decent protection layer.

Volume/No of Units: TBC depending on IC feedback, likely to be 100-200 if the demand is there.

lol, is that for real? if this GB goes unlimited, 2k sales easy. i'm NOT saying it should, in fact i'm against it, but the demand will 100% be there.

So far none of the OG J-01s are sold, all of them are at their original owners.

I'm really thankful for that - the OG J-01 owners are a rare bunch

Without a doubt the OG J-01 is the best board I have in my collection, I can't see myself ever getting rid of it despite fully planning on getting a rev 1.

Jae, why are the two bottom keys of the macro keys on the layout marked red?  Just curious.

Two different top cases. you can have 8 keys and the logo, or 10 keys in the macro pad

I've always fancied the pen rail; functional and classy. Does anyone have a daily driver that the pen rail gets a lot of use? I'm curious to how the ano holds up to nicks and scratches. I'd be scurred to use it on the e-white.

Yes, I've been using the OG J-01 for a couple of years daily now with a solid brass pen, there are no marks in the anode, but the brass on the back of the brass penrail has increased patina, I assume from passing on the oils from my hands. If it was clearcoated that would be less of an issue.

Congrats on this beautifully refined design, Jae. Iím very excited and anxious to join.

Thanks - James was much more accurately able to re-create my vision than the OG J-01, despite how much I love that board, and then we brought it up to modern spec with seamless design etc.

Definitely interested in this. Just to decide which colour will go best with GMK Firefly. Still, depends on price because I've just joined GB on KBD8X. Damn timing. Ha

No - the top and bottom case will be different. Grey base with either the red, black or blue. Onlt the E-white option will come with the same colour top and bottom case.

The reason for this is that I prefer the aesthetic of the grey base with the coloured tops as it helps to achieve the floating look of the board, and fits the design language better. The E-white version achieves similar through natural shadows as the top is much paler than the other colours.

Just on the Blue, someone mentioned that this was the same Blue as the Aegis navy. I reached out to Aeryxz and confirmed it is the same pantone.

I tried to get in the run for the original J-01 prototype and that didn't work out.... and now after looking at some of those changes for this iteration, I feel it may have been a blessing in disguise.  Looks like some nice thought out refinements.  I may try another run at getting a J-01.  ;)

I tried to get in the run for the original J-01 prototype and that didn't work out.... and now after looking at some of those changes for this iteration, I feel it may have been a blessing in disguise.  Looks like some nice thought out refinements.  I may try another run at getting a J-01.  ;)

Thanks - lots of refinements, modernisation and some subtle changes  :thumb:

Love it

and I love you


Jae, please set the quantity right, so everyone can grab it! 🙏  fantastic one!

updates from the feedback form, and annoucements on numbers soon.com

give me blue with brass rails and logo please

Blue and Brass will look great :D

Hope the number of units is high for this one

Details on numbers soon...

Hey folks - quick update:

Thank you to everyone who filled out the feedback form, I've now closed it down. In all we got about three times the number of responses I was expecting, with a huge array of suggestions. Sadly most of the suggestions are compromises I don't want to add to this board however, here are some suggestions that made the cut:

    i) 6u spacebar / row - will be added to PCB layouts only (ofc plate files will be public once the GB closes)
    ii) Split Spacebar option - will be added to PCB layouts only (ofc plate files will be public once the GB closes)
    iii) FR4 plates - will be included in material options

97.5% of responders voted 'yes' to purchasing one, and 2.5% responded 'maybe'. Given this, I intend to make 150 units available with a caveat - if those sell out within the first day I'll open up another 50 for a total of 200 24 hours later. For successful buyers a form will be issued via email for you to select your options. These will be FCFS.

There will be a raffle for the 20 Limited Edition E-white spots one week prior (and some additional F&F LE spots at my discretion).

Prices and dates for both LE and standard versions will be announced soon - I'm currently working through these but expect the date to be late August.

Its late here so I'll update the OP tomorrow :D

I have definitely entered this hobby at the perfect time. Cannot believe I will already have the chance to pickup up my endgame keyboard. I wish you all the best and hope that everyone who really wants one will be able to get in on this.

Definitely in for that deep blue version... probably with the brass bar too. ISO CF plate is a go !

Do you plan on running GBs for different colorways of the pen rail? Asking since the dark navy board with pink accent and pen rail in the J-02 render for the GMK Pink on Navy IC looks sleek af (yes, I know this is the J-01 and not the J-02 used in that render, but I think it would still look just as good)

Happy with the arrangements for quantity. Fingers crossed I will be able to get one when it goes live! Appreciate the addition of the FR4 plate, keen to try out both that and carbon fibre to see which I prefer in this board. Looking forward to the FE raffle too, as I love the e-white! Maybe the RNG gods will be on my side this time? haha

Yes and no, it will have an MOQ for any colour options as an addition later, but I'm happy to entertain te idea (personally thinking of doing a full eva themed one later down the line)

Gotta give the people the options they want :D

Blue and brass will be lovely - solid choice

Excited for this! Any chance you'll have a black pen rail in the future?

probably not. if i manage to snag a board, i'll grab an extra rail and figure out how to paint black myself.
