A 3D-printed handwired monoblock split by 70rch: torch0.
Published January 23, 2023

The torch0 by terryorchard aka 70rch is a 3D-printed handwired monoblock split keyboard.

Inspired by Joe Scotto's builds and videos.

The initial inspiration for this build was the Alice layout, but a columnar-staggered, Kailh low-profile, 40% remix with some extra ergonomic tweaks inspired by the 6x3 Corne. A big reason was to avoid doing a split for my first project so I could get my head around wiring and firmware and prove to myself I can actually make a board that works – terryorchard.
