Damn I really hope the D60Light makes MOQ

I just received confirmation from KBDfans that the D60light will still be produced even if we don't hit the stated MOQ  :thumb:.

I was thinking this would be the case, great news. I purchased on day one of course, it looks pretty cool.

Thank you to everyone who has shown their support for this set! I just got the final numbers from all vendors this evening, so you can expect some cool graphs from Dvorcol soon  ;).

Also, all vendors will be picking up extras - so if you missed the GB, there will be opportunities in the future to pick up a set.

This is great to hear, I missed this set by two weeks.

Hi Everyone! I'm pleased to announce that the first round of samples in on it's way to me:


Once I have the samples in hand I'll review them and give an update.

Also, KBDfans is providing a color sample for the D60light for my approval as well.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Hi everyone, apologies for the radio silence on GH. I've been busy with the set and some other irl things. I've been making updates on my discord, but just in case you haven't joined the server, here's the TL;DR:

I've reviewed the samples sent by KBDfans. While things look alright overall, there are a number of things that need to be addressed:
  • The alpha and mod keycap colors are both not quite right. I've requested another round of color matching.
  • The alignment of the NorDeUK keys don't match the alpha keys from the base kit. I validated that the alignment is good in my file, and this is a manufacturing side issue. I've asked that this be addressed before production.
  • The alpha legend color came out slightly more brownish than anticipated, I've adjusted the color in the design file to hopefully mitigate this. Another sample for this will be needed as well.
  • The samples sent to me were using the wrong homing keys - I received the old scooped + barred keys and and keys without scoops or bars instead of the new scooped only and barred only keys. I asked KBDfans to ensure that this is corrected for production.
  • The stepped caps lock key has the same issue as all previous ePBT sets where the stem placement is slightly off which causes the key to sit slightly more to the right than it should. The key is still perfectly functional, but I was led to believe that the new molds would address this issue. I've brought this up to KBDfans to see what can be done (if anything) to address this.
  • The D60Light sample is pretty far off from the pantone reference. I've requested another color sample from KBDfans.

I'm still awaiting a response to most of these points listed above. KBDfans requested new color references because the original keycaps sent to them were lost. It also seems that the reference keycaps I sent to Rama were also lost in shipment. I've sent new sample keycaps to both parties.

I'll be sure to continue to update the thread as things progress. Thank you all for your patience.

Make yourself known to the vendor in your region.  There should be some extras so keep your eyes peeled and your wallet ready.

Hi sorry, I've been posting updates in my discord. I'm currently waiting on the second round of samples from KBDfans.
