Yet another #atreus build, quite happy with the result https://icosahedron.website/media/rCbkAcJ0HWrrQ_o1VNg
I've posted the source for the keyboard (now named Grid60) at https://gitlab.com/gbrnt/grid60
Now with F+J nubs! I drilled a hole in the keycaps and stuck in pieces of PLA filament that had been rounded off by using a rotary tool as a lathe.
The switches and keycaps for my new keyboard arrived and I had to get it ready to type on! The switches are Gateron silent brown (I'm not a huge fan of how they feel, but they're definitely nice and quiet for taking to work). The keycaps are roughly the green colour of the company I work at.
I'll probably give this a break before I get designing a case.
The new Nolive Cream switches looks so good! I love green! :D They're decently priced as well. I might have to buy these..
After having used a respectable sample of #MechanicalKeyboards, it's kinda weird to me why Cherry is still more respected than its competition. I understand it's likely because they got a head start before their patent ran out, so I'm willing to be patient. And it probably doesn't help that the worst switches I've seen have been Kailh (browns feel weak and they die often).
But Outemu is AMAZING. By far fave switch is Outemu brown. So substantial! And great for bringing costs down for mech KBs.
