I have noticed that the usb-C connector you have used on your design, seems that it does not support data transference. The pins connected to the signal D+ and D- are connected to the signals CC1 and CC2 as seen in the datasheet.
Indeed, it won't work. I'll have to change it. Thanks for the heads up.

Edit: changed to 16 pins.

I've recently bought the parts to make my own TOAD using the rev4 pcb and I can't for the life of me solder the usb-c in place. The pads are directly under the pins which make it hard to stick a soldering iron down there without melting the plastic on the usb-c and using a heatgun to try and solder it on just isn't working. Any tips on how to solder this usb-c down? It's hard to find any videos of people soldering something like this.

I finally managed to make RGB LEDs work. Two will be then featured on the TOAD in the near future.
Sadly EasyAVR won't support it so now it's QMK firmware alone.

Huge thanks to nevin who helped me figure out the code.
Here's a demo on a breadboard:

Too bad for you. It means that you'll have to buy one from the upcoming GB.

I was looking for a an open source 60% case and stumbled on this thread. This is amazing. This thread provided me lot of info on creating a custom case. Really appreciate the work of the designer. Thank you so much for putting all the effort on this and giving it to the community.

I put a couple of PCBs together and I can confirm that everything works as intended.

I'm in touch with a vendor in the community to organize a group buy but I'll be fine tuning a couple of things with the case first.

I put a rev.4 into the original case and everything fits perfectly.

Here's a test with RGB LED indicators.

This is truly amazing, that you chose to open source your project. But there is a problem. The source file links for the case is not working. Did you change your mind about open sourcing the case?

Nope, I've redesigned it from the ground up but I'm testing a few details. I'll be publishing the .f3d file as soon as I'm sure it's good to go.

I've been eyeing this project for a good 2 months and I think now is a good time to tackle it. However, there is still one thing, the online cad viewer simply doesn't let me download the files and also the google drive link is dead. May I ask about the new link to download?

Man awesome work. I can only say thanks for all the efford and time you put on this project. I read in between that you were thinking about a GB. Are there any plans on that moving forward?? I would like to participate for sure!
