Zambumon Verne: custom TKL keyboard


#102

Can you give the specifics of what was discussed? What are the details of the raffle?


#103

What does it mean when you say it’ll have a “fixed plate”?

Is it the same kind of design as Clueboard (plate and top part of the case is just one piece of metal)?


#104

A fixed plate, contrary to a universal one, only supports one layout to achieve the best fit for the switches.


#105

No specifics were discussed. They talked about the inspiration for the board and that just got me more interested. Zambumon hasn’t confirmed how he’s going to handle selling this board if it comes to fruition but it sounded like he wants to do just a small batch.


#106

Gotcha, thanks.


#107

Loved the Verne teaser key in the SA Nautilus GB


#108

#109

this looks amazing bey keeping an eye on it on your page for a while via insta and i cna say i cant wit for this to hit the market some day it draws mein ascetically for sure. All your keebs end up looking so good.


#110

Looks very elegant. Particularly the blue & red. Godspeed looks perfect on white though.


#111

hoping this is able to be made! love the concept brother


#112

Looking good. Can’t wait to see the final product.


#113

looks great. not having ISO support in the plate is a deal-breaker for me though.


#114

Verne PCB sneak peak:


#115

Oof that’s gorgeous! Love the 10000 leagues referenced here again.


#116

damn even the pcb looks real nice.


#117

Is it fixed layout? because the description says it is buy the pcb is not.


#118

From my understanding, fixed layout means the physical arrangement of the key switches is fixed. You can program what the key switches do, though. I don’t think I’ve seen the official word on it yet, but it might be safe to assume it’ll support QMK.


#119

I believe @8ckerno is referencing the fact that the PCB supports multiple layouts, but the plate does not.


#120

Ah yes, you are correct. I somehow missed the preview photo of the PCB :sweat_smile:


#121

The plates have a fixed layout. Option a is standard ANSI. Option b is 1.5, 1.0, 1.5, 7.0 bottom row and stepped caps lock.

The PCB has some extra holes which won’t be used.
