Planck End Game Case (High Profile) Anodize Color update!
« on: Sat, 05 November 2016, 12:08:03 »
SAMPLES & ANOUNCEMENT:


- This time only Case B will run
- Case A will run after Case B is 100% done (including shipping)
- Case B will require smaller plate, which will be supplied in the buy later. Or you can cut/file the OLKB plate (2.5mm on each side) like I did for these prototype. I don't wanna widen the inner opening just to make it compatible to unmodified OLKB plate because it will make the gap between keycaps and case too wide especially compared to between keycaps, and that's against my design believe. And I can't make it 2 parts like KMAC did too because the small width the bezel has (and KMAC's plate have its own screw hole too).
- Case A will be redesigned to support unmodified OLKB plate by dividing it to 2 parts, Top Case and Bottom Case. The wide bezel on this case allowed the screw post to be implemented. Splitting it to 2 part design may increase the price but I still don't know yet because I want to focus on the Case B 1st and develop the Case A further after it (so for you who already soldered and love your Planck, please add some extra patient in the waiting time ^-^).


Case A
153550-0

153552-1

153554-2


Case B
153556-3

153558-4

153560-5






A high profile metal (still searching for available material) for Planck.
The thing about hipro case on Planck is it will look awkward in proportion because the nature size of Planck.
So to give an impression of slimmer case I make 2 designs, one inspired from Apple M0110A Keyboard and the other is inspired by Apple MacBook White Polycarbonate.

Please fill this form >>> https://goo.gl/forms/shPLUsCtqkxoOwyD2 <<<
If you like to get email notification regarding major update on this case!

Updated Case A (Apple M0110A)
152387-6

Updated Case B (MacBook Polycarbonate)
152389-7

I still working on the inner part for now, mimicking the original architecture of Planck milled case.

Update 1
Got a render for Case B
152113-8

At first I thought it was the QS Series Planck keyset from UKKeycaps but jebbra has stated otherwise on reddit. Either way, I really want it to be a thing. It looks so classy, like 9009.

The keyset is another project I'm working on, will reveal it around new year  :thumb:


Beautiful case.
Thank you!

Just make it a split Planck with them  :cool:


And please collaborate with Jackhumbert if possible!
(Oh, for the upcoming Sub-Atomic too!)
Already sir. I'm in contact with him to cross checking  :thumb:
For Sub-Atomic, I can't say anything since the keyboard itself still in the middle of design.


At first I thought it was the QS Series Planck keyset from UKKeycaps but jebbra has stated otherwise on reddit. Either way, I really want it to be a thing. It looks so classy, like 9009.
When I look at 9009 it sure give the same calm vibe, but I believe it will be different in the end.


Great cases, loving both designs! Could you offer Planck PCBs as well in the GB for a complete kit? The case has its own plate anyway since the olkb plate is a tad too big, right?
Yes most likely this will be sold bundled with its own plate. I know it will hurt people which already owned and soldered their Planck, but I can't make solution for compatibilty with standard plate, for now.

Spread the word and (maybe) this won't be just a dream!

As I understand the deep cutout is for a teensy if you go for handwired build. Other raised parts are probably PCB supports.

yea raised part supports the pcb..

buhhhh...  I think the top should be filleted..

The bottom of the pegs are fine , but if you're machining that you would need a ball nose,  and it doesn't really do anything,  even 4mm of aluminum is plenty strong without that corner radius..



I don't think there should be any Round corners on the pegs at all,  because you guys have to remember, cnc curves are not actually round, it's kind of an illusion.  and if you round it,  there's just more finishing involved to make it look smooth..



Square pegs without corner radius would be the fastest and with filleted top.



IN FACT,   I think you should remove all the pegs,  and just tap holes..

Then machine all the pegs separately  and just m3 screw it in.. hahahahaha

I don't really know how the CNC/milled process works. And because the one who run the workshop is my friend I also said "If you think there are unnecessary things that increase the milling time, please just adjust it, especially the inner part" when give the file. So my drawing may very be inefficient but my friend on the workshop will fix it, and that's why I run the sample ;D

You guys are sure about this? it seems a bit silly to rest a PCB on metal... alu or not - because of soldering points etc.

I saw you took the cases to the Jakarta meetup. They look pretty good. Here is a link to the photo for anyone that missed them http://i.imgur.com/N3WBJjc.jpg. Oh, and here is another one http://i.imgur.com/Z9ck3FW.jpg. I found both in albums linked on Reddit.

On that second photo you can see a ridge along the middle of the case. Will that also be present on the final product? Did you make these cases compatible with the normal plate sold through olkb.com, or did you assemble the Plancks you took to the meetup after you got the prototype cases?

I am dying to see the small bevel case in black or dark gray. That will most certainly be the one I will get.

I am dying to see the small bevel case in black or dark gray. That will most certainly be the one I will get.

Obviously any surface will be cleaned from ridges and marks! The one on visible on the photo is due the wrong step on milling and because of that we now know how to handle it. I want to show them to more people and get their input before I move to the next step.

Here's some fact and plan:

- Case B will require smaller plate, which will be supplied in the buy later. Or you can cut/file the OLKB plate (2.5mm on each side) like I did for these prototype. I don't wanna widen the inner opening just to make it compatible to unmodified OLKB plate because it will make the gap between keycaps and case too wide especially compared to between keycaps. And I can't make it 2 parts like KMAC did too because the small width the bezel has (and KMAC's plate have its own screw hole too).

- Case A will be redesigned to support unmodified OLKB plate by dividing it to 2 parts, Top Case and Bottom Case. The wide bezel on this case allowed the screw post to be implemented. Splitting it to 2 part design may increase the price but I still don't know yet because I want to focus on the Case B 1st and develop the Case A further after it.

Obviously this baby still far from perfect as there will be 3 steps, CNC forming, CNC finishing, and coating (anodize/powder coat) and this sample only been through 1st step (CNC forming) plus I encounter some problem in the set up fo some holding marks are very visible.

Now the announcements:
Like I said on previous post, this round only Case B will be made, and it will come with spesific universal plate (Grid, MIT, and 1.25–1.25–1.25–1.25–2u/2x 1u–1.25–1.25–1.25–1.25 Bottom Row). And this case can't be used with OLKB's plate unless you cut/filed it (like I do)
Why?
Because I will develop Case A further into 2 parts case to support OLKB's plate (so for you who already soldered and love your Planck, please add some extra patient ^-^)

Then the question:
I still can't find a good anodizing vendor here, personally it is okay for me going with powder coating (and I like it more because powder coat can give similar matte finish like keycaps do, thus making the whole keyboard feel uniform in texture).
What do yo think about powder coating?

If I want a case that support something like a staggered Planck keyboard PCB also (sold in the past also at OLKB), then I think A is better?

would be nice if you'd round those edges a tiny bit, similar to case A :D

I actually like the look of the sharp edge on case B. But it would probably make sense to round it over just a bit so you won't hurt yourself on it.

Will the plate for this case support switch top removal? That is one of the most valued things of the standard OLKB plate in my opinion. I have opened my switches many times.

Ugh what I wouldn't do to have Case A. It's probably the best case design I have ever seen.

I agree, I love the way case b is at the moment. I think smoothing the lines would be nice, but curving them maybe not.

Can't WAIT for this!

The edge will be smoothed just to make it not dangerous (but really, the one I hold now while looks sharp, won't hurt at all). But it won't be curved because it will make the case looks roundy overall which I avoid. Remember the round/fillet on the bottom edge is introduced to give it a thinner impression, not make it roundy.

If I want a case that support something like a staggered Planck keyboard PCB also (sold in the past also at OLKB), then I think A is better?
As long as the dimension and USB placement of it is the same as recent OLKB plate, you are good to go.

Looks awesome. Please don't forget us preonic lovers. Even if you didn't do a complete GB on preonic, I would love to buy a prototype/sample.
