Yes
Have the plate materials been determined?

And they are?
It's literally where you should look if you're wondering those sorts of things.

If you're referring to the original post, there is no mention of plate materials, only layouts. I've seen brass, PC, and aluminum mentioned in throughout the course of the thread, but no confirmation.

Not sure if this has been addressed, but would it be possible for the black pc version be more translucent that opaque?

i belive thats just the nature of the material but not 100% sure

It would be really cool to have colored frosted polycarbonate.  Not necessarily in this keyboard, just in general.

More suggestions on other aspects (colors, finishes, angle) are much more needed next.
Would love this board to have a 8 or 9 degrees angle for better typing experience (compared to lower angle).

would love to see different colours of translucent/transparent polycarbonate, akin to gameboy colour/n64 transparent colours (see attached photo for example). as for angle, 6 and under is my preference but I can deal with 7.

Any pictures of the prototype, senter?

Can anyone point to me some sample photos of E-Red?




Clear PC, black PC, purple, and E-white.

I made an opaque white one but it was warped. It won't be available in this GB.

For e-black and yellow anodizing, you can check pics of Leaf 80.

I didn't make a prototype for e-red. It's a new color. The finish is the same with e-white, which is matte.

Here's a photo of the color:

Hi Senter, are all the e-coating in a matte finish or non-matte finish?

From the look of the prototypes, is it safe to assume that when we get aluminum plates it will also be anodized with the same finish as the case ?

A polycarbonate half plate would be interesting for maximum flex.

Has anyone seen the Alps plate?  Is it straight up Alps stabilizers,  Alps stabs + Cherry PCB on space bar (tai hao style), or perhaps SP style (All cherry stabs)?  An alps polycarb build would probably be the best feeling custom alps board you could make.  I find Alps to suffer from dampening and rigidity of stiff plates or tray mounted cases.  This is a really cool board.

I wish I did; been pestering him a lot about the Alps stuff.  I think it's all Alps stabilizers.  I saw a post on r/mm with an Alps Leaf 80.

I specifically asked if he could post real images of the plates, since I wanted an Alps Split Space plate...  (I'm such a snowflake,  :p )

ALPS stabs only.





Here are the ALPS plate layout and the capslock support.

The design of the numpad is finished but we decide not to run it with Leaf 60.
Too many options have been added to Leaf 60. It's safer to run Leaf 60 only this time.

E-purple can have matte finish. It's not readily available in the factory tho. It's very expensive to make it available.
Normally we cooperate with the factory and use the available colors.

Will the entire PCB have MX/Alps solder points for all switches, even though the plate will be ANSI WKL?

If it doesn't run together, that's fine! But if it's been finalized, what's it like? Amount of keys? I'll still buy the 60, but I also really want the numpad friend!!!

It has 6 rows but only one key on the top row. I may make some changes as there's plenty of time
