Case for the Iris keyboard. The cases consists of two sets of parts, top/bottom plates and middle layers. The middle layers are optional and can be added in between the top and bottom plates at any time.
Screws and standoffs are included, enough to fill the holes along the perimeter of the plates. The inner holes do not need to be filled and parts are not supplied for those holes.
Info on available parts and Iris Rev. 3/4 compatibility:
All of the plates are compatible with Rev. 3/4, although some bottom plates do not have a cutout for the reset button. Some of the plate options are not compatible with 2u thumb keys, so here's a bit more info about it.
Stainless Steel Plates: Compatible with 1u & 2u configurations
FR4 Plates: Compatible with 1u & 2u configurations, top plates are made of FR4, bottom plates are aluminum (black on one side, bare aluminum on the other)
(New!) Carbon Fiber Plates: Compatible with 1u & 2u configurations, about 1.6mm thick
Acrylic Plates - Clear: Compatible with 1u configuration, 2u possible without stabs, no reset hole
Acrylic Plates - Black: Same as the clear plates
Acrylic Plates - Purple/Blue/Green: Compatible with all configurations
Acrylic Middle Layers:- Only compatible with Rev. 3, cutouts are not large enough for Rev. 2 USB and reset button
Aluminum Plates - Black (B-stock): Compatible with 1u & 2u configurations, black side may have marks, switches may have alignment issues
Plates for the Iris are offered in these variants:
Aluminum PCB material
Stiffer than the FR-4 PCB material
Switch plates have black both sides
Bottom plates have black on one side, bare aluminum on the other. Bare aluminum side may have various scratches on it, not guaranteed to be pristine on that side
Exterior screw design
Kailh Low-Profile version
Only supports 1u keys
1.2mm thick instead of 1.5mm
Comes with 11mm standoffs instead of 12mm ones
Can also be used for MX switches
Top and bottom layers
Same design as the stainless steel plates
NOTE: For the black and clear plates, the stab notch is not large enough, so it’s not compatible with 2u stabs without modifying the plate
16 gauge (1.56mm) 304 stainless steel with a #4 finish
Screws and standoffs are along the outside border of the plates
The plates come with the following:
2 Switch plates
2 Bottom plates
For the PCB plates w/interior screws:
20 M2 6mm screws
10 M2 12mm standoffs
For the stainless steel, acrylic, and PCB plates w/exterior screws:
40 M2 6mm screws
20 M2 12mm standoffs (steel, PCB, and acrylic plates) or 10mm standoffs for KLP plates
Switch plates are compatible with MX and Alps switches and support MX switch top removal. Note that for the non-1u cutouts however, the switches won't have anything on the plate to grab on to, so you need to be careful with alignment when soldering the switch.
The design files used for the Iris will be made available here, in case you'd like to make your own pieces: Iris Case Files
This 12mm thick middle layer is used to encase the area between the top and bottom plates. Most pieces actually measure between 11.4-11.8mm, so 11mm standoffs may be more preferable to prevent the mid pieces from rattling. Compatible with the stainless steel, aluminum, or acrylic plates and the design posted on GitHub.
For the tented middle layer, you can use M6 or 1/4" carriage bolts to tent the board.
Note: This is not compatible with the PCB plates with the 5 interior screws that were offered a long while ago, but is compatible with the PCB plates that have exterior screws.
