Is there a map or guide to distinguish where these DCS keypads are supposed to go?
Those don't really correlate with what I received and the ergodox isn't quite that simple. What goes in the thumb cluster, for example?
Austin, the dcs set we receive for the ergodox set does not look like the one Ziggurat posted.
The follow are from my memory on the top of the head from building it last night.
Compare to the picture he posted,
Take out row 5 from the file we did not receive it.
We received a set of row 1, 2, 3 and two sets of the row 4 with sharp angle (second to the right)
you will get extra u1 four buttons for row 1 and row 2 (or 3.) each those are for the thumb button
There will also be 4 u1.5 row 3 extra, those are for the linear buttons on the finger area.
I had to take out a measuring tool too sort out the key caps....... a bit of labeling would help future potential buyers.....
Agreed, some labeling would have saved me a lot of time on these keys. Even sorting out the keys was a little tough, I wasn't exactly sure how many of each key there would be.
I used the pictures and information from another Massdrop DCS drop to compare the keycaps and positions.
16 - Row 1 - 1space
14 - Row 2 - 1space
10 - Row 3 - 1space
20 - Row 4 - 1space
2 - Row 1 - 1.5space
2 - Row 2 - 1.5space
6 - Row 3 - 1.5space
2 - Row 4 - 1.5space
4 - Row 2 - 2space
yaeah.. no kidding, it was a difficult to sort them out to say the least.
Also.... does anyone's keycap looking looks like this? http://imgur.com/8Bv2cNv
this is a bit difficult to use.....
Mine looked like that as well, and then one of the "arms" completely broke off this morning.
From what I read on the drop, the puller isn't really very sturdy. Some people were recommending soldering/supergluing the prongs into the base to keep it from breaking (or to repair it).
If I were to join the drop again, I would probably not get the puller.
In a previous Massdrop I found there were 4 row types for a DCS slant profile.
Here is a diagram where each row is placed:
Thank You !!!
I have been sorting them out and trying to see where they fit...
I have more than 4 types of keys though...
hey. i basically used a picture like this and then just counted how many of which I had and then put the pieces together ;)
