apologies for the crosspost on deskauthority, but bisl asked me to do it.  :)

Hey guys, I ordered 2 of the kits from massdrop. I also talked to Weyman @ wasdkeybaords.com (I have no affiliation with wasdkeyboards.com) because I want to get fancy laser etched keycaps with a custom pattern. here is what he said:

Quote
I didn't know Massdrop was going to run this. I put in an order myself today. We can definitely work something out for these kits. Pricing will be higher than a normal set due to the number of 1.5 keys needed. When we order in normal 104 key sets, so one of these sets would use up 6 sets worth of 1.5 keys. If there's some interest from at least several people, I can put together a new layout file for everyone to use specifically for the ErgoDox. For pricing, we would be looking at around $80 per set.


Do you need custom pattern laser etched keycaps? No. Will it make a cool keyboard cooler? Yes.. Yes it will. 

Pretty awesome that Weyman ordered a keybaord as well. hehe.

can't wait.

I ordered both with 'full hand' (wrist rest).

@StaCT13 If you can get the source compiling okay, you could always edit the layouts directly in source. It's meticulous but straight-forward once you wrap your head around it. Here's an example of the default QWERTY layer: https://github.com/benblazak/ergodox-firmware/blob/master/src/keyboard/ergodox/layout/qwerty-kinesis-mod.c#L27-45

So I assume that if Sold+Committed = 100 then it rolls over to $199?  (ie. you could have 25 sold, and 74 committed, and as soon as there is one more commited, it becomes 100 sold?)

The PM said this PCB supports PCB-mounted switches. Do the MX switches need to be PCB-mounted, or are you saying (dorkvader) either works?

I am likely going to opt for third-party source of switches due to the mediocre switch offerings.

Switches are priced in the GB at about $0.50 each, unfortunately not enough to do a 1:1 swap for the aluminum case.

I would highly recommend PCB mount even with the acrylic plate, however they are not strictly necessary.  I also do not know what MD is supplying.

It doesn't say whether they are pcb or plate mount, but from what i've seen in the photos the examples that they have shown appear to be PCB mount switches.

Btw guys, if I would want to add a second keyboard but with different options (other case, other switches, etc), I need to buy it again, right? Because if I update the quantity in my history, the options are the same for every keyboard.
That would add shipping costs again. (Germany)
Guess I will ask them! Thinking about getting a second kit with the other case.
That way I can compare what suits me best, and the assembled keyboard with the case I don't want to keep somebody will probably buy I guess.

I'm sure you will be able to find a buyer wasabah.  I'm leaning towards two kits so I can have one at work and one at home.  I'm still debating if I want the full-hand or the standard cases, though.

I wish they'd put up a image for the aluminum case.

Work&Home: good idea.. damn! :D
I'm also interested in the aluminium case. Especially with the hand rest, I think the feel might be nicer then the acrylic.
If it looks cool I'll get one. They want to put up a picture in the next days.

Edit: and we got 25 buyers! :)

It have a slope if you look at the side picture but it was easier to only model some flat spherical keycaps. Final keycap shape is not determined yet and my be left to the user.

Yes the headers are for connecting the 2 halves.

WTF.  THis is really making me mad  >:D

I have been really interested in the Ergodox forever and ever!

But I never, ever, ever clicked on this thread because the thread title does not say anything about ERGODOX  so WHY would I click on this thread?!  GRRR.

I would really love flat spherical keycaps or flat cylindrical, or all keycaps have a small slant.  If having a slant, then the front of the keycap should be a little higher than the back.  I know this works perfectly because I have a rubberdome keyboard with keycaps like that.  They are awesome!  (The keycaps, not the rubberdomes).

If all keycaps have same profile then the user may switch his keycaps around into any position they like any time they like.  For example they could swap things around to try out COLEMAK or DVORAK layout.  Or maybe just swap 2 keys with each other.

Having all keys be the same profile is Awesome.

Having all rows of keys be a different profile is rude and nonsensical.

I wish this was available in red switches.

Will this keyboard work with a PS/2 adapter?

If it works on PS/2 and has red switches then I will buy 2 or 3 of them depending on how much it will cost me to pay someone to assemble it for me.  I absolutely cannot assemble it myself. 

I don't mind spending the bucks to get 3 of them if the keyboard will do what I need it to do.  Plus that way when the guy I hire to assemble them screws up my keyboard and gives it braindamage then I still have 2 left that will work out  ;D

For me, keyboarding is not a hobby, its a way of life.

I know there's a plate there, but I thought I saw the pins in one of the pictures where it showed the bottom of the assembled keyboard... I zoomed it in some more and I guess you're right, it looks like they're not PCB mount.

So ErgoDox needs to be in the title, and the link to massdrop should probably be in a group buy page, in the group buy section. If you want your numbers to grow, post this where people will see it (buying sections of the forum). I'm in for one, and am going to send the info out to friends just in case they are interested.

Having all keys be the same profile is Awesome.

The keyboard comes without keycaps, so you can easily buy a set of keycaps all in the same profile, for example from WASD Keyboards, and use them.

I wish this was available in red switches.

If they don't offer them, you can buy the keyboard without switches, and buy the switches elsewhere.

Don't know, but for me, as long as I'm using a computer that accepts USB keyboard input in the BIOS (which all computers do for the last 10 years) then I'm sticking with USB.

It doesn't look like the case massdrop is using will allow the controller to be relocated to the left hand section. Is this just my faulty brain or is this true?

Believe that is the case.  I remember reading before that everything was created with the intention of the controller on the right half.  May be able to get away with it on the left with a little hardware DIY/hacking.

I see no real reason to put the controller on the left side if you are not building a left hand only keyboard. And I didn't have a good look at the case either right now. But if it is layered wouldn't you be able to simply flip each layer upside down before putting them together to mirror the design?

Actually, flipping the Teensy is the easy part... You'd also need to put all the wires for the USB connector in the correct places, and make sure the communication between the halves ends up correct, and worst of all bend the IO-expander over backwards =P

I assume that if you solder it as it is (teensy on right side), flip it over, and remap all the keys, you can have teensy on the left.  But the thick teensy is now on the bottom of the PCB and my case design does not account for that, especially all the cutout areas.  I am sure it is doable if changes are made to the CAD files.  But seems a lot of work for one special edge case.

The Teensy can simply be soldered in, on top, upside down on the "wrong" side (if you get to choose which side of the Teensy the pins are that is). This in all effects "mirrors" it.

To do the same with the IO-expander you need to bend all the legs over backwards. This is probably not recommended by people who "know" about these things, but it should work =)

After that you just need to figure the rest out. Everything else is only 2 pin components and mirror symmetric by nature =D

Litster, wouldn't the right hand case be possible to assemble with all parts upside down to create a left hand case that would support a mirror of the right hand side electrics?

Yes, you could do it, if you also mirror all the components on the right hand side to the left hand side. I.e. Teeny on left hand side and on the top of PCB, IO expander on right hand side and on top of PCB.  The only layer you would need to swap is to move the right hand side mounting plate to left and vis versa.  other layers stay where they are.

Those look like copies which they have made by themselves based on switch locations. They don't seem to have the tabs required to make allow the switches to be opened while mounted in the plate.

Yes, unlike my other design, this is has been released for the public.

I would not be surprised if the one on kbdmania is done based on my original design files.

Will this keyboard work with a PS/2 adapter?

The USB code is from PJRC for now, and conforms to the keyboard USB Boot Spec - i.e. the computer sees it as a regular, normal USB keyboard.  Real PS/2 adaptors should work, as far as I know.  Passthrough adaptors (what the cheap ones usually are) almost certainly won't.  I haven't tested either.

Also, if anyone was interested in removing the right hand side without any modding, and didn't mind an extra altoids can on their desk, I don't think it'd be hard to put a Teensy in one, having the USB come out one end, and the I2C TRRS jack come out the other.  I think all you'd have to do inside is 1) insulate the unused contacts (obviously), and 2) wire in the resistors to pull up the I2C lines...  :)

Finally got my order placed, bringing us up to 29 orders.  I'm still hoping we get red switches added to the GB (..and those aluminum case pics).
