A little backstory to whom it may concern.
The project actually started in June 2015, at the time a hi-profile PBT set was a mirage. No manufacturer likes PBT and dye-sublimation is a fine art few can master. Anyway I presented the idea to MD that gave me unconditioned support!
To be clear: this is not a beamspring clone and it has very-little-to-nothing to share with SA. Thanks to the community we collected very rare vintage high profile keycaps and we started thinking how to make them work on modern keyboards. With that heritage we designed something that I believe --and I hope you'll agree-- is something beautiful and unique.
I'm also incredibly grateful to MD that agreed to make the tooling for both an angled and a flat bottom row. The former has probably a sleeker profile, but possibly the latter is better for long typing hours. Even better, you won't have choose one or the other because all base kits will get both versions! So try for yourself and pick what it is more comfortable to you.
I will give you more insights in the coming days (hours?) but I just wanted to chime in to say that this is a true work of passion, designed by enthusiasts for the community! The keycaps profile --unoriginally codenamed MT3-- will be available to anyone to use for future projects on MD. If you have a cool idea for a keycaps set to be released in this profile, just contact me or MD and we'll make your high-profile desires come true (hold on cowboy. not just yet! many moons have to pass yet).
See you later and stay tuned!
Are these going to be similar to SA at all or closer to the Realforce Hi-Pro caps? I have a RF Hi-Pro and I just cant get used to the ridges on the edge of the caps.
ridges are just perfect, man :)
So if this isn't an SA profile, can we get some profile comparison shots?
Pipe dream perhaps, but I'd give anything for the upcoming Oblivion keycap set w/ this profile ^_^
these molds are for pbt dyesub (dark legends on light backgrounds), obvlivion would need a double shot process unfortunately..
Yeah, I was thinking that as I was writing the comment. One can dream 😀
Will there be any clearance issue with novatouch?
Are there renders available for CMY Mods? They look extremely hyper colour, just wonder if they'll be subtle closer to the triumph mods?
Have sent you a message on DT! Thanks for making this available to use for future projects!
Hi matt3o, does the 6u Spacebar work for centered? Or is it only offset?
it is centered. I tried with both stems but it doesn't work, so we'll go center stemmed
Center works perfect, lol wanted to use it on my Realforce anyway....shame you can't make a nice custom topre set with Japanese alphas too! lol
Hey Matt, is there going to be a chance for a third round/drop of this set? I'm only asking because I might use that round to get some kits of this set I didn't get this time around.
I'm sure there will be more. Q4 maybe?
@matt3o Would this next round include the Elven kit again by chance? :D
I have the Base Kit and CYMK mods, so I'm missing the caps/tab/return keys. So disappointing. The shape corrects everything I can't stand about SP, but this is an EXPENSIVE and needless mistake. I would have done Godspeed, but dropping all MT3/Matt3o until this set is complete.
I got the modifiers on the drop this morning! I have learned my lesson on the different kits - and nice writeup by Livingspeedbump.
