KiwiKeebs MacroBoard V1.0 – Round 2
What is it?
The board is a 6 key macro board with integrated rotary encoder (and button). Button configuration works flawlessly with the online QMK Configurator so you can program it to do whatever you need! The rotary encoder rotation is not currently supported by the online QMK Configurator, but you can custom compile this to do whatever you want using QMK on your computer. The board will ship as default with media keys and volume control on the knob as standard ready for you to customise.
Both the body and the control knob are custom designed and are made from solid CNC aluminium anodised in black and the knob includes a grub screw to ensure a secure connection on the encoder.
The board supports 5 pin Cherry MX switches and a Micro USB for connecting to your PC through a Pro Micro.
This is a limited second run of 25 kits.
What do I get?
You will receive the following:
- 1 x Aluminium Casing
- 1 x Aluminium Knob
- 1 x Grub Screw
- 1 x Rotary Encoder
- 1 x PCB
- 1 x PCB Top Plate
- 1 x Pro Micro + Pins
- 7 x Diodes
- 1 x KiwiKeebs Sticker
- -All the stand offs and bolts needed
There will be clear instructions on where to solder and what and how to flash QMK using the online configurator with your own custom keymap. All solder jobs are through hole so no fiddly SMD parts.
PLEASE NOTE: You will need to source your own 6 x Cherry MX switches, keycaps and micro USB cable 🙂
I am using a manufacturer in the UK for my CNC needs as it is quite expensive and I like that I can physically visit them if needed. I have sent all 3D files to them, had a prototype made, and we have agreed on the specifications and timeframes.
I have received a test piece which requires minor adjustment and I will be giving the green light for production of the remaining pieces once the group buy is over!
PCBs have already been made and I have them here for testing, my initial prototype worked perfectly!
I aim to ship these sometime at the beginning of December (depending on when all the parts arrive) but as with anything in manufacturing please allow for some delays!
