Wow, didn't see this before, looks great! Did you consider some other profile?

Thanks! :)

I have lightly considered SA3, but as it looks right now, DSA feels like the right thing. I also wanted to do a uniform profile because it's more cost efficient layout-wise; i.e. fewer keycaps necessary for covering alternative layouts (like Dvorak, Colemak, Colmak Mod-DH, Workman, Norman etc.) and other languages (Scandinavian, German, UK layouts etc.).

Also, DSA feels very retro-industrial to me. I dig that and I also feel that it works well with the Halloween III theme (I'm thinking about the scenes towards the end with all the industrial computers set up to summon Samhain). :)

What was your thoughts on choice of profile?

Looking good. Never tried DSA keycaps and these ones look nice. Lets see where this goes.

Love the new renders and am glad this is still a possibility.

Thanks! I'm sticking with it! ;D

New render added!

TKL (Mech27-TKL by 27). Render by u/janglad.
(Attachment Link)

This is a great colorway.  Nice job.  And with DSA, at least you have a chance of your set being produced in this decade.  :cool:

Not really a fan of the fact that I'd have to buy 4 kits to cover my XD75 (layout here>) http://www.keyboard-layout-editor.com/#/gists/895bb28c227db0a128ad131208d5bad1


I love the colorway (and the fact that it's DSA) but a dedicated ortho kit/more compatibility in one kit would be nice.

Glad you like the colorway and thanks for the input! Were there any specific keys you wondered about or had suggestions for? I'm continuously tweaking the 40%/ortho kit.

In your link I see you've added arrow keys. If you'd be satisfied with directional legends, you could cut a kit right there already.

You knowm lately I've been wondering about whether to split the kit into two, but there are two things that have prompted me so far to keep it as one: 1) looking at previous drops, while dedicated ortho and 40% kits would likely reach MOQ, they also seem less likely to reach higher drop points and lower prices; 2) 40% and ortho boards share a lot of 1u keys and both are flexible in their use of layouts; i.e. more keys to choose from for user customization.

These are just some of my thoughts at the moment and I'd appreciate any feedback and/or suggestions to make this kit (or kits) better and more compatible.

Just feel the kit design is kind of out of date. More recent sets include split Rshift and Backspace in base mod kit (like R2 canvas) which will immediately improve the capability a lot. Also hope to see a split spacebar set available.

I've noticed recent kits include these keys, but I wonder why split LShift + split Backspace is included in a mod kit meant to cover standard layouts? HHKB-layouts are still dependent on extension and spacebar kits so is it because it's become more common with 60% form factors including arrow clusters? That would at least account for split RShift. I think could include it. I'm still tweaking the kits. :)

Edit: split spacebars will be supported. :thumb:
