Creators! Feel free to tip me off about your keyboard related projects to bring them to 120K readers.

I didn't noticed the 3W6 when it was released by the author 3 months ago, but llpamies has just posted his build.

Git repo:

I needed a keyboard for work and wasn't really satisfied with the available alternatives (namely Corne, Kyria and Ferris), mostly because they were rather large and didn't had the spacing I would like. It's designed to be a no frills, cheap and small keyboard to be taken everywhere – weteor.

No hotswap, no multiple switch types, no encoders, no LEDs.

BUT with onboard controllers (so no extra ProMicros, Elite-C needed), production files including SMT assembly files, and sturdy through-hole USB-C connectors.
