Hi guys! As CA66 is also having an IC, we would like to bring you our first TKL design to TKL lovers which we already held a GB in TW and CN. Doppio.
199183-0199185-1

Doppio is Italian, which shares the same meaning of "Double" in English. Refers to the top dual layers visual effect we want to perform.
We tried to make Doppio simple, but look exquisite with neat lines and rounded corners. No brass weight or anything else which is luxury.

We came up with this design first on March: https://www.instagram.com/p/BgEFFRMBCDI
And then our first prototype was out in a month later: https://www.flickr.com/photos/149475414@N03/albums/72157667528136238
199187-2199189-3199191-4

This version with name plate was made for modding with a stock membrane wireless keyboard.
Now we give it some changes, to make it a wire version.

Here are some renders:
199193-5199195-6199197-7199199-8
199201-9199203-10199205-11199207-12
199209-13199211-14199213-15199215-16

We put indicators in and made a trick of them, according to the concept "layer by layer".
And removed the name plate, engraved the Doppio name above arrow keys.

Case Features:
  • 6063 aluminum
  • Top housing (WK & WKL)
  • Bottom firm plate (PC bot plate would be an option for RGB underglows. Will make it thicker than alu one for visible from bottom)
  • Switch plate (brass plate option prob)
Color Options:
  • Case colors: dark grey, white, grey blue, dark red, rose gold, army green
  • Switch plate colors: black, silver, red, blue, gold
PCB Features:
  • White pcb, gold pads
  • South facing led orientation
  • USB C interface
  • QMK firmware
  • WKL 7u layout (would add ISO in if needed)
  • RGB underglow
  • indicators between ESC and F1
Price:
  • 245USD for all colors
  • (other parts options to be decided)
We already have a schedule to make some (probably 20) for first round. If someone is interested in it, shipping would be quite fast as it's only anodizing left.
Price won't be too high since we were not aiming on that but try to make it more affordable. But still need some time to make a conclusion.

Color options are still holding (CA66 colors can be references). Just want to show this one to you guys first to have some feedbacks. ;)
But we really hope that we can bring white color to Doppio by using electrophoresis, here's a sample of it:
199217-17

As always, feel free to ask anything! :thumb:
Thanks.

2018.7.5 updates some renders without logo and moves it to bot plate.
199377-18199379-19199391-20199381-21

2018.7.6 Polycarbonate bot plate renders update, for the RGB underglow.
              It would be 2mm thicker than alu plate for capable of seeing the RGB effects.
199475-22199477-23

2018.7.7 Put in ISO layout. WK and WKL version renders both been remade.
199567-24199569-25

2018.7.27 White color pics updated, by electrophoresis. The case was a failed CA66 case.
200676-26200678-27200680-28

2018.8.2 New renders are up. You will be able to see all case colors and plate colors. Brass plate and PC bot plate are also available.

The elevated front face reminds me of the F&T 1916, which is also being IC'd atm.

Thanks. I've check it and it also looks nice.
We might came up with this idea a bit quicker, but no bothers. ;)

Probably around 240USD, then piles up with additional parts options if you need them.  :D

I'm curious why you chose 6063 AL vs the more common 6061?


EDIT: More common for machining purposes, to clarify.

Probably not. We prefer to come up with a new design if we want to bring wireless up again. ;)

It's pretty similar to a Leopold FC750R without those two raisers open, which is a comfortable and stressless angle imo when I type on it.

Wire version does not have that logo plate. It's back to normal with 3keys. ;)

We'll see how many people is discussing it then add that option. :D

6063 performs better when anodizing. I had the same doubt as you when discussing with the factory. :p

Yeah no logo will be there. It'll be look like those new renders. :thumb:

that actually looks promising. I may be inclined to purchase just a pcb if ever it is offered.

Kind of hard. If you are talking about Kailh hotswappable socket, it doesn't support multi-layouts.
We might come up with a no blockers version so that makes it even more not possible.

Thanks for liking the design. :thumb:

Soldering is easy, I only started this year and I made no mistakes on my first board. The harder part for me honestly still is still PCB programming. If it doesn't have an easy GUI interface like for KBDfans boards/DZ60 etc, I can't really figure out flashing a custom map on QMK. Most of the tutorials out there are ridiculously obtuse.

Topclack had a special where they sat for like a 2 hour live stream and learned how to use QMK from (if I remember correctly one of the devs??). I found it useful, as with a lot of other 1-2 hour tutorials. Worth your time if you want to sit and watch!

Most people need those 3 keys according to feedbacks. So we put them back. :eek:

I'm not a big fan of logos above the arrow cluster, but I understand your desire to advertise your product. If you must keep it there then you must, but I would definitely prefer to have a clean area above the keycap cluster.

Consider me interested. I look forward to how this IC turns out.

Thanks for the understanding. We actually put a lot effort into modifying the logo and it's shape and size.
We are pretty happy of how it looks at the moment.
The engraving depth would be 0.25mm to 0.03mm which won't be not that obvious to see. ;)

If we have a spare one. :eek:

Switch top opening plate is not stable imo. I did like it before until I found my switches crooked when soldering. :(

Will think about it.
The logo font was designed to match the concept dual layer as you can see.
It would be look similar to our numpad which also shares the same engraving depth. Not so deep:

Expected to see you here. :D

Matrix is one of our keyboard design idols, and I buy their keebs myself.
We like how Abel looks with it's top housing covering to the bottom, and that's the only inspiration. No other things included.
It'll be an honor for ourself to come up with some same concepts with them. (our designer like how exquisite rounded shape shows than squared shaped.)

We'll come up with other unique design in the future. Thanks for comment. :thumb:

The new render is nice! Though if you want to put the logo in the top piece its fine, just mind the sizing and spacing, and of course its font. Because the previous rendition of the logo on the top too big and spacing is off, gave away the clean look

6063 performs better when anodizing. I had the same doubt as you when discussing with the factory. :p

Interesting! Today I learnt!

Check out CA66's rose gold. Doppio will be made similar to it.

Will the plate (both alu and brass) support switch top removal?

Edit: Never mind, I just saw the post on the previous page:
Also can we get a switch top opening place?
Switch top opening plate is not stable imo. I did like it before until I found my switches crooked when soldering. :(

I still think switch top removal support should be considered.

Looks like the interests showed would make it beyond this number. It's not going to be a problem to add more quantity to the factory.
We'll see how many purchasing you guys provide.  :p

that the pcb's LED is south-oriented. This means the switches' led are at the bottom-side of the switches (closer to the user), right?

White looks great but I would also be interested in a more matte finish.

Also quick question on the design, is the case/plate is a top mount and is it a high profile where the bottom of the keycaps are hidden? The initial renders make it seem as if they are exposed.

White looks great but I would also be interested in a more matte finish.

Also quick question on the design, is the case/plate is a top mount and is it a high profile where the bottom of the keycaps are hidden? The initial renders make it seem as if they are exposed.

Top mounting is right.
The bottom of keycaps are a bit exposed as you can check photos in prototype album.
We limited the height of front edge to be around 20mm. If it's too high, it might be a bit uncomfortable when typing. ;)

Normal hand nail won't do damage on it. I don't know about other sharp stuffs but you certainly won't want to make them near your keyboard. :p
We all do a impact test to see how it goes comparing to anodize finish.

I saw this thread when the first renders were up and i felt it was kinda "meh", now as i come by just by accident (browsing gh that is^^) it went up to "must buy". Good job!
May i ask what color is presented in the first picture, the link says silver so i'm unsure what to select. 
Also, may i suggest an option to add on the Polycarbonate bottom plate (instead of only being able to choose between Aluminum and Polycarbonate), extra switch plates and extra PCBs?
Thank you for your time.

Hi. The pic you mentioned is silver which we set it as a color option till white came up.
The case with a gold plate is white I think (can't really recall it).
We'll put some new renders in product page when the GB is about to start.
Surly you will be able to buy extra parts. It's just a bit complicated to put them all in the same page.
We are still doing a research for it. :p

Thanks for seeing our improvement. :thumb:

Guys, more renders are up. :p
You will be able to see all case others and all plate colors in these pics.
Brass plate and PC bot plate are also been made for having a look.

We are still waiting for a payment provider to activate credit card payment at the moment.
And a new white prototype is in progress while waiting for it to be proved. We hope they both will be ready soon! :thumb:

Looks gorgeous. I've been looking for a new ISO TKL for a little while, so really excited I found this!

I would absolutely be down for a blue, and maybe a white depending how matte it ends up looking. I suppose I'll finally have to learn how to solder as well.  :-[

The page mentions south-facing LEDs -- does this have keycap lighting as well as the underglow, or did I misunderstand?

Cheers!
Yes the board supports both in-switch LEDs and RGB underglow. But as in-swich LEDs are facing south, you'll need to find shinethrough keycaps which alphas are on the bottom side of surface. That way the light will be able to go through.
If you are not looking for that effect, then don't worry about keycap choice. ;)

Is the Silver like the CA66 white-silver?

Most people need those 3 keys according to feedbacks. So we put them back. :eek:

Yeah, the silver would be similar to CA66's. If you want it whiter you can just pick up a white one. :thumb:

Hi!

The small pre-sale is only for WKL version.

SolidCactus ordered a WK Doppio which is not available right now. So we refunded the order.
We wrote down the note on the invoice, but seeming like it didn't show up for SolidCactus.

Please send me a pm if you want to get an early ticket for a WKL Doppio.
Invoice will be sent via shop for the receiver to pay. :thumb:

Thanks!

    Weight total if you can guess?

    Will it sound good and compact or hallow?

    No brass weight option... to keep the price down?

    Where do you guys ship from, possible to declare lower value so people have not to pay 1/3 of the price to customs?

I'm currently having issues with QMK flashing with the PCB.
Seems that the default flashing had some issues and i'm unable to find a default hex file for the 80% playkeyboardtw pcb online or in qmkconfig.
If anyone has had this problem and solved it, would you mind sharing your solution and maybe a copy of the hex file that worked for you?

Thank you!
