KUSOboard by covah901 with Longan Nano completed.
Published June 12, 2021

A Reviung-style monoblock with EVQWGD001 scroll wheel.

Only possible due to all Karlk90's work getting QMK on the GD32VF103 and Longan Nano.


I had started out wanting to build an Atreus sized board, but then changed my mind midway and decided to go with a Reviung39 style.

The column stagger is modified to fit the size of the author's hands better (large hands).

The layout was designed in FreeCAD then brought into KiCAD.

so I can finally have a design where everything is placed deliberately and not off by .1 mm or something, as I've had to made do with in the past because I find it difficult to make KiCAD do the sort of placement ergo boards require.
