[IC] Igris V1: Old School TKL
« on: Wed, 14 October 2020, 01:43:16 »
Igris V1: Throwback to Cone Feet
iC FORM
Technical Specs & Information
  • WKL TKL
  • 0.25mm engraving
  • 20mm tall flat keyboard with screw in cone feet to adjust the angle. 
  • Top Mount only (sorry no gaskets)
  • 2mm polycarbonate plate and 1.5mm aluminum plate Koala/Whale/Jane V2 compatible plate
  • 15 mm feet = 8°
  • 13 mm feet = 7°
  • 11 mm feet = 5°
  • H87A compatible
  • Prototype made in 6063 aluminum
Price
  • 30 Units: $500
  • 100 Units: TBD
Unfortunately, even though cone feet is supposed to be a cost savings measure, low quantity runs cannot pass the cost savings to us.  I will update when I get a quote for 100 units if there is enough interest.
Feedback on Colors???
    My philosophy with colors is to be as simple as possible to avoid as many quality and matching issues.  I do not plan on entertaining custom colors or any other color than what I have specified.  Thank you.
    • Space Gray with Red Plate?
    • Black or e-Black with Red Plate?
    • Red with Black Plate?
    Engraving
    I currently have my last name engraved on the keyboard

    I am open to engraving the Igris name on the board, or offer no engraving option, the factory does seem to mind engraving

    Prototype Pictures in Space Gray and Red





    Upcoming Details
    • Sending Prototype to be built by Velvet & Maxf
    • Check fitment with 2mm plate and H87A rev 1.8 PCB (rev 1 has a lowered USB port, oops)
    • New Prototype address small details
    • New Prototype to test brass and e-coat version
    • Test new feet design and angling
    • V2 for non-cone feet lovers?


    Obligatory and Unnecessary Keyboard Lore for Geekhack Interest Checks
    The keyboard is named after Sung Jin-Woo's summoning, Blood Red Commander Igris from the LN and Manwha Solo Leveling by Chu-Gong.  The keyboard design was inspired by old school Korean customs.  More information can be found on my Making Stuff Together! post: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=108926[/list]

    P.S. Heading to bed, so I'll check in the morning.
    P.P.S If I'm not responsive, I'm probably playing Genshin Impact. 

    H87C or USB C options?

    Maybe in the future, but there are many H87A available and I personally want to use the H87A I've purchased.


    F13?

    Maybe in the future, F13 requires a redesign of the top piece and redesigned plate.  It won't be called the Igris V1, maybe a different version.

    Will it be stable?

    It's intended as a throwback to early kustom designs, but those are exactly the kind of designs that have withstood the test of time that I want to reintroduce into the hobby.  Also most of these cone feet kustoms that used to be dirt cheap are $1000-3000+ nowadays  :(

    Dear Invis,

    It's tree leaf approved. Thank you very very much for making it.  If I ever get over my love for the Column stagger then I will definitely consider this.

    Does it support split BS  or stepped Capslk

    Prototype plates fit stepped caps and full size backspace.  You can use Hiney's universal PCB or another drop in replacement like Mechlovin's pcb/plate assume it fits the Jane V2.

    Cone Feet in small quantities is not actually cheap to make, my proto was $50 a foot, in addition to paying for the rest of the keyboard.  It's about $350 just to get the board from the factory to me, then you'll need a PCB, and then shipping... The margins for 30 units is not as large as it seems.

    such a big fan of the early custom boards with cone feet, this looks really really great. both engravings look good, but i think i prefer the original engraving over the igris one. will definitely follow this :thumb:

    500$ for cones noty

    • I've gotten over 30 responses, so I'm hoping we get enough people for an upcoming price drop.
    • This is an IC, if you have any constructive criticism or any kind of real feedback, I'd like to hear it.
    • 30 Unit margins sucks for the customers, no way around it.  It's about $400 in raw materials to get to me
    • Would you rather pay $1k for a KMAC with a sus PCB, or $3k for a DGE?
    • Even at $500, I think it's still better than half the custom keyboards in GB and IC.

    This looks like a Aliexpress aluminium Filco case, but 3 times the price.

    If I could make as many boards as the aliexpress aluminum filco case, I could cut the price down by 3 times.  Also the factory is going to way better quality than the aliexpress board.
