Supposedly he'll upload the plate online so you can mod it.

It will be unlimited but I will be running it for a limited amount of time. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 2-3 weeks so that everyone that wants to join can get in.

That's right - I'll be releasing the STEP files of the plate before launch of the keyboard on Github for anyone that is interested in making their own plate.

I'm curious how high is the profile of the case around the keycaps for the aluminum version? On some renderings it looks like the bottom of the caps sit below that top surface by a mm or two and on the 3d printed protos they seem almost flush. Thanks!

Can I mount the plate with the spacebar facing towards the top for a negative typing angle?

The keycaps sit about 1-2 mm below the profile of the case, this is the same on both the 3D printed case and the aluminum. I made the render with the keycaps before I had made an actual prototype and could use them as reference.

Not on the aluminum, but I'm thinking of offering a no-slope and a negative slope option for the 3D printed case. If you would be interested in something like that, let me know and I can work on implementing that for the final options.

We have just announced a collaboration with Koobaczech over at Pearlboards.net to support 10u spacebars out of the box. I'll be selling a modified Plain60 PCB that has support for 10u, along with the ANSI Plate supporting it as well.

If you want to pick up a spacebar to go with your Modern F - now is the time! Head over to Pearlboards.net to get yours today!

The case is really cool and the design is superb. It sounds a bit hollow based on the instagram videos of the prototype. Will there be foam options/possibility to add your own foam?

Thinking about $50-60 for the PCB, should be listed before the keyboard even comes out, if you would like to pick one up. I'll be running a separate IC just for that as well. I can link to that after it's posted.

I do think a lot of the hollowness is attributed to the poor placement of the microphone in the sound tests, but I have been considering getting a foam-cutter (like Stupidfish or similar) to make some for this board.

Interesting design, definitely want to see more. It would be great to hear more about the PCB and if you are working on Alps support. Are you mainly just trying to sell the case to fit standard 60% components? A proto of the actual machined version would be great since if it is just a case then a sound test would go a long way towards me wanting to buy. I give this the Digiorno frozen pizza rating.

Yeah this is just a case to fit standard 60% PCBs. The aluminum prototype has already been ordered! Should arrive in a few weeks and I'll have more to share then, including the launch of my website.

Excited to see the prototype! Its awesome you are offering a cheaper 3D printed option too, so its more accessible to everyone! I would 100% be down for a 3D printed standard 60% or hhkb (since hhkb style cases are harder to come by).

UPDATE 3/22/21 | Both prototypes are at the finishing shops. The anodizing shop is one of the best in the country, and I can't want to show off their work. The powdercoating shop will be doing the off white and I'm very excited to see how that turns out as well. These protos should be back within another week or so, and expect another update then.

Packaging samples have been ordered and will be here in about 3 weeks. The keyboards will come in a hard case with custom cut foam (similar to a Pelican case). I can't wait to show off everything that I've been working on.

Another update is that I've opened a Discord server where you can come ask me questions directly or want to follow the project without following me on Insta. Link for that is below and on the top level post.

so cool. I think if you make some changes and go for 65% with ther same dimensions or maybe a few milimeters adjustments, you will get an ever more positive response. 65% is all the rage these days.
