Atreus62
« on: Tue, 15 November 2016, 10:16:34 »
So I just received the prototypes for the Atreus62 PCBs I designed.

These are 62 key varients of the Atreus. They have 2 extra columns and an extra row.

They utilize a Pro micro and run QMK.

Everything checks out and they will be for sale soon.

Wow, nice job.  I always thought an expanded Atreus was a great idea.  Look forward to seeing it on sale.

Ordered this - very excited about the prospect of an Atreus with a number row, etc.  Trying to plan a keymap.  Is there a "default" you could point to at keyboard-layout-editor.com?

I found this, but I'm having trouble figuring out some of the codes.

https://github.com/jackhumbert/qmk_firmware/blob/master/keyboards/atreus62/keymaps/default/keymap.c

From what I can tell, the 7th column is mostly open, except for what looks like delete and enter, which are transposed vertically.  I assume they will map to the thumbs somehow, correct?

The middle column is the thumb keys. There are no other keys in that column. The "missing" keys exist because of the nature of a keyboard matrix.

Hope to see a split version also. Or can you share the pcb design? Am hoping to design my own.

Got mine in today safe, good job packing, lots of protection, USPS is super abusive these days



I love the idea of veneer as a build material for keyboards, it seems sturdy and scratch resistant. However the laser cutting left a really smelling odor I'm sure will eventually go away

I'm going to try to build this tomorrow and I'll post plenty of pictures and a review video later on like I did with te original Atreus. Good job man

Awesome! Make sure to read through and follow the build guide:

https://github.com/profet23/atreus62/blob/master/build-guide/README.md

Take note of how the controller is soldered.

Got mine built and programed, it was easy to build in fact i spent more time on the winavr/driver/qmk stuff due to recently doing a clean install of windows and deciding how i wanted my layout

Zelios 65g, Granite Keycaps for now, i think it looks OK

i did use my own m2 screws with a m3 diameter m2 socket tubes to hide the screws and not making the keyboard super thick, i did this with my ergodox

more pictures and review later on, ill be using it all day tomorrow for work, so far so good

with retro caps to match atreus 40%

i think these are the only caps (that i own that are not SA) that really work with this wood veneer stuff, i think if i did a redo i would have got a black or white case instead



so ive been typing alot with it today and i think it is a great keyboard and is going to replace my ergodox as my daily driver.

I'm just starting to build an Atreus62. I'm digging the screws you used. I ended up getting some M3 screws and "Self Clinching Standoffs" from ebay. (http://www.ebay.com/itm/391599612326) They haven't arrived yet, but I already know I will have to drill/cut my bottom layer and a spacer larger to fit the nut. Do you mind sharing what you used? I'm definitely interested in something a bit simpler. Thanks!

I've ordered a PCB a few weeks ago (it's still in customs). I thought I could use your PCB in combination with a bluefruit EZ-Key to make a bluetooth Atreus62. By checking the build pictures it seems all pins of the pro micro are already in use, which would make a bluetooth version impossible. Am I right about this?

Correct. All the pins are required for the 62 key Atreus.
