Love the colors! Fits the theme really well and the references to Angel Beats in the novs are a nice touch. All the best!

Maaaan when I saw the inspo I was sooo excited cause Bioshock is one of my favourite games (well trilogies) !! I love the atmosphere of the game and the art-deco designs!
That being said, I think this still needs some work. I am not a fan of the colours and I think the alpha and mod colours are a bit too similar. Just a suggestion since you are going with ePBT, have you thought about using a different font for the legends that is more aligned with the art-deco style used in the game? I think it could look unique/interesting :D I understand this is still a WIP so I am excited to see the next iteration! Good luck!

It worked!  If I use 1/8" (.139" actual) silicone cord stock instead of pre-made O-rings, for all of the configurations here, you can simply run O-ring along the top and bottom edge of the board skipping the parts where the stabilizers are.  This makes the slot cutouts in the side of the case unnecessary for gummy worm mounting.  Also, cord stock is way less expensive than pre-made O-rings especially when you get into the lengths needed for these mods.  The KBDfans cases have enough gap that the fit is rather loose around the outside perimeter, but I used 1/8" tape (any kind will work) to shim between the side of the switch and the silicone cord stock.  This allows you to fine-tune the amount of squish you want to put into the gasket.  .01" of tape worked well for me.  This would be one layer of masking tape or two layers of white-board pin-striping tape. 

The KBDfans wood Tofu case is now available for $33 and I gave it a try.  The good part about this case with the new cord stock configuration is there are no cutting mods necessary to make it work!  Just don't install the included standoffs.  I used 1/8" thick sorbothane for the supports.  The down-side to this case is the sound is very high pitched and clacky due to the very small cavity space beneath the PCB.  I presume they designed it that way to reduce the "hollow" sound that a lot of people don't like which is emphasized with tray mounting.  But, gummy worm mounting reduces that boxiness, and  more space underneath would provide a fuller sound.  Anyways, it works fine if you like the clack!  I don't think JWK's on a half plate were the best pairing here, but tape modding the bottom of the PCB helped a lot.  On the same budget, I'd go with Gateron milky pro or cap V2 switches in this configuration.  Or, mod the case for more gap underneath.

Oh!!! Figured it out. . . he was using the newest build of Kicad. . not the stable release version.  So I installed the most recent nightly update and everything loaded without issue.

New kids might not want stars, but I'd be lying if I said I hadn't been thinking of mine for the last 4.5 years.

Only seems fitting that my 100th post is in this thread  ;D

I'm always astounded with how fine you can make legends on KAM sets. Maybe I've been brainwashed by double-shot caps, but holy smokes those periodic legends are small.

Lots of interesting quirks with this set  :thumb:

This is looking to be like a great set! Love the 40's love. Love the colorway. Love the theme.

Thanks so much! Gotta give more 40s love in the future too :D
