COME ONE COME ALL! WE HAVE EVERYTHING! TKLs! 60%! SMALLER THINGS!

FORM HERE

Instead of doing a singular 40% GB, foggyflute are considering offering four mini-boards (JD40, JD45, Planck, Minivan), the two cases offered in previous buys (TKL [B87 or nerD compatible] and 60% [Standard and HHKB compatible]) and two brand-spankin' new offering (65% and a keypad/numpad). Orders will take place for these simultaneously using a single order form, so feel free to order any combination of cases that your heart desires.

General material specs are as follows:

~ 1.6mm matte carbon fiber
~ Frosted white/solid black acrylic midpiece
~ Switch-mount PCB
~ M3 screws/posts
~ Acrylic feet (angles will be 7 degrees for TKL, 65%, and 60% and 5 degrees for 45%, 40%, and Keypad/Numpad)

Pricing:

TKL (nerD V2/B87):               $149 + shipping
65% (22mini rev-B/Tada68)   $109 + shipping
60% (Standard/HHKB):          $99 + shipping
45%( Minivan/Planck/JD45):   $~89 + shipping
40% (JD40)                           $~89 + shipping
Keypad (Cospad?):                 $~59 + shipping

Filled in the form.

It's early, so I could just be getting confused, but doesn't "<7 degrees" mean anything smaller than 7? shouldn't it be the other way around? :))

I do not. changed :thumb:

could you wip up something for the lets split...don't know how long before mehkeys get ahold of the trrs jacks and i can't source them but i would for sure be down to grab a carbon fiber plate case/sandwich to put on the back burner
probably gonna just try and stick to the cases I have now. Just looking for major keypads to get the compatibility of

I'd say check the old GB thread for some pics, but pretty standard variety of enter and bottom row compatibility

The 60% are so popular even in this IC that if I do it, it'll probably be it's own GB after this. I'll definitely earmark it and get some stuff planned out though.

I filled out 60% in the form but if you're offering 65% I would get that instead

I would love to see this in 65% or 75%.  The lack of options between 60% and TKL is kind of disappointing.

Interested in the 60%

Will the plate support mx+alps & cherry+costar and, also, is the price including the acrylic midpiece?

The plate just supports MX at the moment to my knowledge, but that is an idea. I messaged foggyflute to see if it is costar compatible. And the price does include the midpiece, only in the first CF-LX did it not :thumb:

Dope!

MX is all I would need, as someone on reddit said SKCC fits pretty well in MX plates but not Alps plates, which seems to be true. Costar would be nice so I can stabilize the spacebar, although I could probably work out a mod, if needed.

OK so I don't really how to make the question more clear on the form, but when I ask what keypad PCB compatibility you'd like to see, I was referring to keypads, not 60% (which is almost literally the only thing I've gotten so far). I'll probably just end up making them compatible with the FC210TPs and the Majetouch keypads, so standard with the 4-key on top.

Not interested in the keypad so I didn't fill it out (I like a 5x5 layout for that, personally) but the Cospad seems to be a popular one.

BTW, some people might be confused because most, as far as I know, call it a numpad.

Well, I usually just knew it as keypad distinguishing it as a seperate thing. But yea, I'll change it in the form just in case. I'll look into the Cospad too.

Is there any possibility you could do a 65% this time?

What boards would you all like to see compatibility for? MOQ is 5 for anything new, so if y'all are for the same board (or boards that are compatible with one another) I'll see what I can do.

I'm not sure what the best 65% pcb would be since there really isn't several big ones besides maybe Tada. I do like the layout options for Krelbit's MEME project.

For 65%, I'd recommend making the case compatible for the Sentraq65/Tada68/Winkeyless 22mini-B since all three have pretty much the same USB placement and you can buy the PCB alone.

What boards would you all like to see compatibility for? MOQ is 5 for anything new, so if y'all are for the same board (or boards that are compatible with one another) I'll see what I can do.

For 65%, I'd recommend making the case compatible for the Sentraq65/Tada68/Winkeyless 22mini-B since all three have pretty much the same USB placement and you can buy the PCB alone.

None of those have upgraded to USB-C right? And do they do QMK? USB-C and QMK are kinda what I'm personally looking for in almost all my purchases moving forward.

They started putting ****in USB-C in boards? Man, I've fallen behind lol... The board you posted seems to have basically the same layout I've seen on most other 65% boards. So as long as they share screw and USB placements they should be fine. Even if some are micro-USB and some are USB-C, as long as the hole is large enough to accommodate C we should be fine.

Nope, none of them has USB-C but AFAIK all three can run QMK.
However I do remember reading something about KBDFans bringing out a PCB with USB-C, Bluetooth and TMK that fits the TADA case. Here it is.

I totally forgot about that one. Battery space would unfortunately be an issue trying to fit it into this CF case though?

I think that KBD bluetooth 65% will need to have case considerations for a battery area: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1473/3902/files/7_d3a6a939-e57c-46e8-9069-77296e1613a4.jpg?v=1521018382

I dunno how much you want to wade into specific design changes to accommodate different 65% pcb (bluetooth or not). I don't have enough detailed knowledge but it would take a bit of research to see what 65% are out there and figure out their differences in terms of USB position, bluetooth or not (and battery space case changes), etc.

Space between the PCB and case bottom would obviously be a problem (I'm not sure it would fit at all currently). Also, adding something to the bottom CF plate to ensure the battery doesn't slide around (though I suppose one could just tape it down).

Yeah, ultimately it depends on how ambitious you want to be with the 65%. The reason why I particularly like the MEME pcb is because of USB-C, QMK, and split spacebar options (I don't think any 65% has this option yet?).

Agreed.  Also, I don't care about usb-c or wireless; mini usb is just fine.

Accounting for usb-c doesn't really require much change at all, if any. Probably just extending the hole by a few mm

Is it possible to order only the diffuser and black spacers?  I was part of the first group buy.

My preferred 65% is probably more the FC660/Clueboard variety, but honestly I would be fine with Tada68 support.

Yep. On the GB form I'll put an option for just the acrylic pieces.
