[IC] DSS Hand Work

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi,everyone! I'm Hammer.
I want to welcome you to the introduction of DSS Hand Work.
I like to consider it a faithful reimagining of GMK Handarbeit, however this time around it uses Signature Plastics stock colors.
DSS is a unique profile, similar to that of DSA but more sculpted
As much as I love the original GMK set, pricing as become astronomical. My goal with using Signature Plastics' DSS profile is to not only make the set as affordable and accessible as possible, but also get it into the hands of fan much sooner than GMK queue times.
Signature Plastics queue time is about 10-12 weeks.

What you may notice from the very start is the interesting kitting!
The main idea for this set is to offer a wide range of compatibility that was not present with the original, especially in the 40s department.
As an avid user of all things 40% I decided to make my main focus to support those awesome boards, however, I did not want to leave anyone out and have an add-on kit that supports most other larger boards!
Any keys that is shared between 40% keyboards and larger ones are thrown in the base kit so there is not an abundance of wasted plastic that is left unused!


As for right now, the set is scheduled to release April 2nd (April fools days wasn't available... I know)
Vendors will be announced in the following weeks, again I want to make this set as accessible to as many people and regions as possible!
I have a bunch of surprises in store and I hope everyone enjoys the set.

Always love seeing some more DSS sets in the community, although I personally would definitely prefer a different style of mods (maybe text) :thumb:

No new molds all molds exist. These are all stock colors from signature plastic. And the legend mods are already in production from SP as other sets are using it! But completely understand your point!

The first set submitted and already in production is DSA paper work by Trash man keyboards (formally van keyboards). DSS solarized dark (set to run sometime soon) is also running with these mods. There is also DSS shale which is in group buy right now also uses the mods. They have come to be known as trashcons after the Creator

They definitely arenít for everyone but Iím a huge fan of them!

DSA Paper work*, Shale has been canceled & Solarized dark was only posted this week? I wasn't aware DSA/DSS moulds we're interchangable.

Shale was originally canceled, but had since been brought back with a reduced kit at a much cheaper cost. Super excited for that set. A lot of that information as well as information about sol dark and hand work can all be found in the 40s discord. At lot of discussion goes on there!

I actually like the modifiers, and Iím here for iteration on a meme.

Did you run this by the creator and runner of Handarbeit? I know a R2 for that set was in the works.

Yes, DSS and DSA doubleshot use the same legends. DSA is like DSSís kid brother.

I would love to see a Handarbeit-inspired DSS set without trying to literally replicate the exact colours of each key. Big primary blocks, but done in a way that feels original. As has been mentioned, Handarbeit worked because it was a Cherry reference and this being a different profile is too many degrees away to make total sense. Regardless, best of luck!

The kit render is missing it, but thereís a note that Terminal ISO support will be provided in the addon kit.

I thought about it, but SP DSS regular mods do not look that good. The current mods that are used pay homage to the person that gave me the idea for the set as well as to my favorite keyboard the minivan

To be fair, SP's text-only mods for DSS look quite good, on the whole.  But their standard DSA / DSS icons aren't great.  And with this being a very 40s-focused set, having a nice, cohesive-looking set of icon-based mods definitely makes more sense.

Hi, just wanted to ask, should the numpad enter key be a pale green colour like in gmk handarbeit, instead of the dark blue as currently shown in the renders? I think SP has some stock pale green colour options. Thanks in advance!
