JD40 MKII, 2016
« on: Tue, 28 June 2016, 17:17:01 »
Hi,

I've always wanted a JD40 from the first time I saw one, and when the PCB was dropped at techkeys.us - I had to have it. And now it's here  ;D.


JD40 by Morten Teinum, on Flickr

Pictures of the first (?) PCB have the following layout

140933-0


R1: 12
R2: 11
R3: 11
R4: 6

Total 40


Looks like there is a change in MKII with


R1: 12
R2: 11
R3: 11
R4: 10

Total: 44


From the reddit thread:

https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/4p2tls/buying_jd40_techkeys/

This should be possible:

140935-1

Have any of you built it this way?

I've just tried this layout - unfortunately not all keys are registering at the moment - need to figure out how to remap them via easyavr I guess.

Can you take pics of both sides of the PCB?  Should be easy to add the extra positions which aren't currently visible.

edit:  Unless it's called the JD45 in EasyAVR, that looks close but I thought it was a completely different board....

Success!

I created a keymap with the missing keys in it.
 - Stick it in C:\Users\%username%\.EasyAVR\Boards
 - Then create a new keymap using the JD40 MkII keymap as a base

Now to print a decent set of keycaps for it.

Thinking of swapping the right shift.

Is it possible to put long spacebar on MKII like on v1?

Yes, the MKII PCB supports the original layout. http://www.40percent.club/2016/07/jd40-woody.html

It is these, but it looks like they might have stopped offering dyesub ones outside of group buys so you can only get blanks.
