will the plate be compatible with the black housing of the 86U realforce or only with RGB housing? I apologize if it has already been asked but I lost it

The plates are designed for the Realforce case.

Planning these plates so far:

  • Black housings 86U
  • Black housings 87U
  • RGB housings 86U

I might add some more, but unsure right now.

I don't plan to do any plates for RGB boards for now, they aren't popular enough.

No, I mean the 86 key layout. So you'd use RGB housings/stabilizers, 86U PCB, custom plate, and RF/XRF case.

I think if you have the funds to, you should, but otherwise it isn't too maybe. You do gain stock smoothness and MX functionality.

So would the plate support 87U & RGB housing combination? And I assumed, but would like to get your confirmation, that the LCtrl cut out is square already right?

Nope, sizing is different. Black housing is longer and thinner.

Still unsure about that cutout.

I see, so no plate for me this round then. Will keep a close watch on this for further updates. You're awesome  :thumb:

I will modify the rf86u with Novatouch'd (I have a spare for the mod) then I will try to find housing and mx slider of a RealForce rgb.
But I imagine that the plate is not compatible at the same time with both and I have to choose between Black housing and rgb housing, because they have a different size.

V1 prototype case is ready to be made, will be put into production this week. Looks nothing different from the outside but I started again and took a different approach on the internals.

Going to prototype and then change what needs to be changed, make a v2 prototype, and then you can guess what's after that. PCB work isn't happening for now, other projects are more important.

Haha, yeah it's going to be a regular cutout but made to work with the weird housings. I need to assess the prototypes when I get them :)

I think a pen rest would be really dope on this board, since there is unused space at the top of the board anyway.

Just from reading previous replies, am I correct in assuming that this won't work on a white case 87u because the black 87u is a different size?

Nah. Black plate refers to the housings types (Black & RGB).

All 84/87/88/89u etc should fit.

Full picture of the case

It's more a proof of concept right now though :)) Messed up the screw sizes for the plate, which means the screw heads are too small for the plate. Not a problem though, everything else has gone as planned and I know what needs adjusting for the V2 prototype.

Will continue working on refining everything to perfection :p

How hard would it be to support iso with the case? I think that the iso board has the blockers in the same place although it may look kind of goofy its a compromise i'd be able to live with. I would really love to have iso support.

The case accepts any Realforce (R1) plate, so you can use whatever you want.

There will be a version with blockers, and without.

It's possible but I don't know what I actually want to focus on right now regarding Topre... Probably just the RF case replacement and then other stuff can follow.
