Introduction

Hi all, this is ClickClack!

Over the past few months, we have been collecting feedback and working with Vertex Studio to finalize the design for Angle (International version/R2) and now we are very excited to announce that Angle is ready for the Group Buy! Most importantly, we would like to thank everyone for the continuous support, which made this project possible! Your feedback and suggestions have played a very important role in the final design and lots of changes have been made accordingly. Also, credit to S7even from Vertex for taking all these wonderful product photos of R2 prototypes.

Awesome, been waiting for this since the IC stage. Do you happen to have any samples or references we can use for what the red will look like? Red seems to always turn out pretty differently from photos so it'd be nice to have a better idea of what to expect.

From Discord:

Quote
Q: do the PCB and plates support ISO? IC thread mentions ISO support, GB thread doesn't mention the supported layouts at all and the zFrontier page mentions that there is no ISO support

A: No ISO supports in GB.

Is the CR foam sheet recommended? How would you describe the change in sound if you don't use the CR foam sheet (apart from "less foamy")?

I would much prefer to build it without the CR foam sheet.

Hi guys,

Thanks for your interest and feedback around ISO Support!

Adding ISO or not is a tradeoff between fulfillment difficulty and customizable options. As Angle is currently providing 4 Layout options (F12/13 and WK/WKL), by adding ISO into base configuration will double the layout combination and increase total variant of Angle to 888. Also, with the large ENTER, sound can be affected.

We have brought this back to Vertex and will let you know when we make a conclusion on it.

I would agree and I could accept this reasoning if it had been stated from the beginning, at the IC stage: it has been since July that the IC has always stated that there would be ISO support. Besides this: it seems bizarre to me that an "international" GB does not think about supporting ISO.

And the motivation in the growth of the combinations does not hold up: do you notice the problem the day the GB starts?

Personally I am very annoyed by this behavior: I have been waiting for the date of this GB for months, precisely because of the ISO support, and now I discover that "You know? We joked!". It is a behavior that to define as not very serious is to be kind.

I'd asked this in Matrix discord and Albert wrote me back w the following, first color name is Angle, second color name is from the Matrix ME GB where a bunch of them have been on streams or IRL pics:

"For reference, Angle's Lolo= grass green, Starry= nebula, Acorn= chocolate (top) + brown (bottom), Venus= sesame grey, Rock= light grey"

While obviously subject to change, the international matrix 3 interest check doesnt have chocolate or brown on the list. May be worth coordinating if you wanted one or more of each board.

Since what they’re calling starry here is the nebula finish…Taeha built a nebula finish 1.2, there’s the pics and videos on the matrix, and people more knowledgeable than me could tell me about 2.0’s.
