BFY-1 (the beefy one) by u/bad1o8o is a 18x6 ortho with case STLs. KBD.news
Published May 15, 2022
BFY-1 (pronounced "beefy one") is a 6 rows, 18 columns orthogonal keyboard case for a "non-split" version of the BFO-9000 (from keebio).
The case has a 5° angle built in and the plate is gasket mounted. The internals are a regular BFO-9000, two Pro Micros MCU's, the diodes and reset switches with the only deviation being the handwired TRRS connection without jacks. The cable is routed internally for a cleaner look.
Case STL available
