Man, no kidding.  That circuit board is a work of art.  I might want to hang that sucker on the wall as is!

Love it, best looking traces on a pcb ever!

But, is that just one single RGB SMD LED under the tri-point indicator cutout?

As a reputable vendor will be handling the buy, that will be taken care of.  I will most likely have a form up to collect info and wants from those interested as well just as a backup.

What’s the possibility of a 5mm plate for this beauty?

In order to keep price down, it won't be offered during the buy.  Not saying it's not a possibility outside of that though.

Yeah, having 3 separate indicators didn't seem to make much sense.  Realistically scroll/numlock is kind of pointless on a 75 although it will be qmk so I'm sure you could still set it up as you see fit.

Just curious, will a single led in the middle of the 3 holes properly light up said holes properly? LED's seem quite directional so i'm wondering if the single offset LED would light up the 3 holes to reasonably bright levels. Of course I don't know the finer details of your case design so this is all just conjecture.

RIP wallet. Next to E6-V2 this will be my second custom board this year, and third overall (ACE XT-40 was my first custom). This one looks so good.

Whoa! I haven't really kept tabs on this IC since it was in the early stages, but I'm really impressed with where its progressed. Very interested, especially since it looks like half-plate is on the table

I prefer center aesthetically and for connecting it to a pc (which is my primary use case for 75%), but on the left or right side for connecting to a laptop. If the case is tall enough so the cable goes over the front of the laptop then having the cable uncentered serves no purpose.

The renders weren't finalized design plans, just ideas/ where I was at that current point design wise.

Correct


I think I would prefer to have the USB plug on one side or the other. Not much of a fan of the centered plug. Anyone else?

USB position was a struggle for me.  I originally had it on the left, but personally all my peripherals are plugged in on the right on my desk.  Rather than choosing a side I chose to go with center for my preference as well as it being aesthetically nicer.

I figure right or left exhaust is there so that it doesn't interfere with towing.  Porsches don't need to tow :)

I prefer left side or center just to keep it away from my mouse.  Center is coo.  However, just like this photo, I find it draws more attention to the cable.  Just have to have a nice cable to go with our Ion

It was just a model that can only be used for renders, just as Rama has done for most of his boards.

I think you should shrink the three dots a little bit. Since LEDs are smaller than that, the holes would look “missing”

The LEDs don't stick through, so there won't be any missing gap around them. LEDs are plenty bright enough to light up holes even bigger than that.

Im not sure why he would, he wants to keep it below 400, and 7075 is harder to machine and to anodize dyes with. Board would probably be too spendy with 7075.
