RE65 Prototype Ver 1

RE65 Designed by Nuxroskb

Ever since I got into this hobby, I've always wanted to design keyboards in the most classical way possible,
which could give the best sound profile and typing experience without having to utilize foam but are also budget-friendly for many enthusiasts.
After many failures and a long process of prototype testing, I am excited to introduce my next project - RE65.

During my travel to Malaysia to attend the MYMK 2022 event, I've had the chance to talk to other makers and designers, from whom I was given advices and learned a lot to improve my designs further.
Typing feel and sound profile are the two aspects I focus most, which don't require any kinds of foam to be good.
Finally, I've made the decision to change the design of RE65 significantly and fix any issues that were visible in the last Interest Check.
This post will be an entire rework and final Interest Check of RE65

Hi, I'm Nuxroskb  IC FORM  DISCORD  INSTAGRAM
I designed this board based on a spaceship, with the RGB front bar will be the rocket booster.
I really like using heavy keyboards, the heavier the better, so the RE65 is an extremely heavy keyboard with a weight of 2.3kg after being built.

I just finished the RE65 R1, with R1 I run in my VNMK community last December and some internationally. After R1 I received very positive reviews about the feel of the typing and the sound is very good.
Now I introduce to everyone RE65 R2 with the aim of making it more widely available to people all over the world.
Still keeping the spirit of saying no to foam to be able to produce the most standard sound of the switch that clearly shows each switch's sound quality without distorting it.


Here is some information about R2:

Why does my foamless keyboard come with foam?
Some people like to use it and some people don't, so I still want to let it in.
If you need it you will have it, otherwise, you can use it for your other 65 keyboards.

Sorry if I said something wrong because my English is not good

Unique layout I haven't seen that before that split spacebar might be very funtional. Really cool. Maybe I'm not a fan of the case but I'm a fan of split spacebars

it looks like a dolinger, only worse in every metric. the dolinger is the best board ever, tho, so that's not bad.

I absolutely despise the OG dolinger design and this follows suit but at least the price on this one is actually reasonable
