Doro67, 4mm integrated plate 65% keyboard

Hello friends of Massdrop,
We are happy to present to you Doro67, an integrated plate 65% customized keyboard set.
The test run of this keyboard will be in ALF discord, and possibly GH, if there is enough interest, we will talk to Massdrop and make it happen for more people!
Doro67's look is inspired by RAMA's M65A. The purpose of this design to build an aesthetically simplistic everyday workhorse keyboard. To achieve consistent keypress feedback, Doro67 adopts an integrated plate that is 4mm thick, which is compatible with a few layouts. In order to achieve a comfortable typing experience with high-profile keycaps such as the SA caps, Doro67 applies a lower keyboard profile (height) than a majority of the keyboards on the market. Further, to keep a stable connection, the USB connector will use a separate sub-board from the PCB.
One key design feature of this keyboard is the 4mm integrated plate.

I can only get so erected
Sorry, I had to remove the discord links. I left the community name so it shouldn't be hard to find, but direct links raise some confusion about Massdrop's affiliation or endorsement of various projects. Other than that, this looks pretty slick and good luck!
