Sorry to ping this thread again about the same topic. I figured out most of the dimensions I need for the plate, but there is one left: the plate thickness. Other brass plates I have are 1.5mm, so I'm guessing that might be right, but I don't know how much room there is for error in a gasket mounted system and I don't want to order something and later find it doesn't fit! The other options I'm given (by laser boost) are 1.2mm or 3mm (which I assume is way too thick). Sendcutsend offers 1.6mm, which I'd hope is close enough to 1.5mm as to be equivalent.

I could, of course, wait for my sagittarius to arrive and measure the thickness of the plate, but if you could let me know the thickness of the one that comes with the sagittarius ahead of time it would allow me to get everything together ready for when the keyboard itself arrives :-)

Thanks for the help, sorry to have to keep banging on about the plate!

1.5 or 1.6 should both do.

Has anyone considered further the possibility of a wrist rest for this board? Seems like the case shape would require something custom to really work well with it. Haven't heard of any news on this front, though.

It was considered at some point, but I don't know what's the status on that

I would absolutely love a wrist rest for this thing. Please make it happen.

But who’s going to make it happen? Have the design files for the case been released? Should be helpful to any community efforts.

All Ergo boards should be made with a matching wrist rest, without it the board does not feel complete.

Either CK would have to do it, or someone who has the capacity and knowledge to do it would have to get Upas to give them the required information to make a matching one or to gather the measurements themselves once the boards start to get into people's hands.
