1.5 1 1.5 6 1.5 1 1 1.5
1.5 1 1.5 7 1.5 1 1.5

But you can also make :
1 - 1.25 - 6.25 - 1.25 - 1 (works on some PCB like GH60 and S60-X )

Exemple for a 6U HHKB on DZ60 :

S60-X with 1 - 1.25 - 6.25 - 1.25 - 1

Where did you get your cases?

Something like this (ISO version):

The highligted keys are the most important, the layout of the rest of the bottom row is not that important for me. But standard 1.25u caps on the left side and 6.25u space is nice for keycap compatibility though.

yes, as of now that is supported!
please look at "SKB PLATE DZ60/YAS/BANANA-UNI", lower right. That just has the split spacebar but of course it could be a normal 6.25U instead. again, the pictures don't show every single possible option.

On holiday now,
Want to start gb quickly when I’m back next year.
Although slight mayority voted alu over steel as plate material, I will go for steel regardless, sorry. I think steel is just the better choice for a plate. Will figure out if powder coating black can be done at the same factory where they also do the anodizing in order to keep things simple. Wouldn’t like the blank steel to throw reflections through the key gaps.

Of course! It's 3mm thick aluminium. Top and bottom part. Only the plate will be 1.5mm which is the standard thickness for plates.
Btw I had a lot back and forth regarding the plate material. The decision is made now: the plate will be steel. That's because I personally favor steel plates heavily over alu plates.

Regarding the start of the GroupBuy - damn it's a lot of work getting every little detail right and worked out. You'll have to wait another week (at least) :(

Know that there will be a certain number of slots for 60% Standard, WKL, HHKB, YAS and 75%:
60% Standard x18
60% WKL x8
60% HHKB x10
60% YAS x12
75% Standard x24

If more orders should come in we'll have to reach the double amount:
60% Standard x36
60% WKL x16
60% HHKB x20
60% YAS x24
75% Standard x48

The portions may change according to the orders. The numbers are what I expect based on the google forms.
Will be first come, first serve.
I'll let you know here before the GB goes live.

If you want to get the YAS version, please read the following:
At first I had thought about getting a few YAS PCBs from Silentreader (he is the one who runs the YAS GB) to be able to offer combined shipping for you. I discussed this with him and we came to the conclusion that it wouldn't make much sense to ship the PCBs around the globe twice. The big risk is that I might have to pay quite a lot of import fee. That would make the YAS more expensive for you so you wouldn't see any price benefit from combined shipping anymore.
So we agreed that it's the best solution for all that you contact Silentreader via PM for leftovers. He will also run extra PCBs of YAS very soon :)
