tips:

- nix the .475mm gap between the plate and top piece (you can offset the plate diameter by another .75mm or so and have no gap)
- leave the 1u switch cutouts between the 1.5u modifiers on the bottom row
- use https://kbplate.ai03.me instead of swillkb for plate generation
- the spacebar cutouts are ridiculous lol

that's all i can see at a glance, hope everything goes well

I used ai's plate gen just removed fillets when generating it as its easier to work with that way, but will fillet switches and stab cutouts for final and will add the 1u switch cutouts again. Spacebar cutouts are ridiculous on purpose to meme the Korean spacebar relief cutouts lmao.

I think I like the design, but the super harsh lighting on the renders make it hard to actually make out any details of the board. Are there better renders available?

Yeah the renders I did for the back and the side are fairly harsh. I have better renders for a side profile and should post that instead and will get a better render for the back side.

I will be releasing the plate file once GB has completed, will provide after all invoices have been paid, which means you will be able to make an Alps plate but you'll have to source hiney's Alps PCB yourself.

Once I receive my prototype and make sure everything checks out, and once I am fairly certain of a final revision I think it will be ready. So I'm assuming 2 or so weeks after my prototype has been received.

I would really like this pink one for Bliss once it arrives, but with import fees + PCB + extra plate (about 70€ for aluminium TKL) is probably too rich for my blood....

umm,, it really depends. if you are putting in a purchase for someone else i would expect it to be delivered to two different addresses, and if youre able to put in two different orders that are clearly going to two different people that should be fine with me. if you were going to get it shipped to the same address i wont allow that, only one board per address.

answered on the discord for you but will answer for others, scrapped as it didnt look the greatest and the person i commissioned cancelled.

yeah like i said you can place it for them, but clearly needs to be different addresses, name and email.

it's all up to the GB runner, people design keyboards that suit their needs. if you need ISO, you should design one that supports it. otherwise, don't blast the runner for not supporting your needs.

there are better ways to "raise interest" than making a witty joke at the runner's expense.

Well I have indeed gained plenty of interest and have gotten some suggestions, like from zekkin, and fixed those things. This board was designed mainly to be fixed because it's my board and also it lowers the price of machining as they don't need to program their CNC machines for both plate files, so it doesn't really make sense including when I am only doing 25 boards.

What you were doing was not making a suggestion. What you were doing was being abrasive, entitled, and sarcastic towards a designer who owes you nothing
Is being a decent human a new concept to you?

M8 not to bash you or anything, but you aren't entitled to any changes made to the final product. What makes it in and/or doesn't is dependent on the GB runner's discretion. The runner was being nice and offered to make you a plate if you provided the designs, yet instead of doing anything productive you only made fun of his/her sincerity in making this project succeed.

thought id mention that the corners arent a problem on the proto, they are ever so slightly rounded due to the fact the board is blasted then anodized.
