I really love the Portico - but some of those foam pads are disintegrating. I have one extra set I’ll be installing soon, but it would be cool if I had some in other materials. See, this is why I need a laser cutter
The legends don’t look as thin to me in-person as they did in the renders / marketing photos. This set also features the updated Shift legends as well as a few other small improvements over the first wave of DCX caps.
Finally got around to building my Thermal + & I’m in love with it! The typing feel is almost perfect, it really doesn’t have much give to it but has just enough to give a soft yet solid typing feel if that makes sense. Then it also sounds great without any foams or sound dampening. Overall I’d say Wilba crushed it with this design! I went with L+F New Nixies & TX stabs for this one, then topped it off with GMK Colorchrome for now. I love how the plate color peeks through the grills, just wish they offered more colors for it. I think a red or yellow peeking through the grills would be awesome. I believe Wilba put the plate files up on his Discord server, gonna have to see what materials he recommends & says to stay away from with the leaf spring design. I’d definitely like to have a few more made for mine!
Edit: Had to add a pic of it with Dolch!
Finally (maybe) settled on a keycap layout since these Mint Navy keycaps don’t have an R2 1.5U Backspace. Certainly looks weird and potentially worse than just having a navy |\ key but I’ll try this for a while.
Mostly just jazzed about a new wrist-rest in from fnctl.co. Wanted to match with the beach/ocean theme of the keyboard and I think they nailed it. Sent them the dims and they matched the front width and height of the keyboard perfectly.
