Design Elements

Nasu uses Yuktsi's ever so popular Alice layout. With that said it was designed as a more modern approach to the classic Korean keyboard design. It utilizes a seamless design thus ensuring a clean and simple look and simplifies the process of anodizing. Additionally the sides are inspired by the OTD Koala keyboard as they are my personal favorite type of keyboard sides. All these factors combined make for a minimalistic and elegant keyboard that reminds of a simpler time in keyboard design.

Manufacturing and Vendors

By using the keebwerk configurator the user will be able to fully customize their board by picking any color they desire as well as add switches and stabs to their order

A:Current timeline is 1.5-2 months after IC release (keep in mind this could change at any moment)

How you gonna name it after eggplant, give us an eggplant-ish render, and not include the color in one of the stock options for the board?? Criminal  :eek: :))

Seconded! Purple-on-the-verge-of-black would be really nice. Also, a plastic/flexy plate material would be appreciated.

Looking forward to more details about the gasket style.

Will it be manufactured by Salvun?

As far as the colors go I'll leave the rest to the community. We're looking to do 3 extra colors so I'll post a google form so you can tell me which ones you want.

In the IC you'll also be able to vote about extra case and plate materials (e.g polycarbonate)

As far as the gasket system goes I'll post some renders that show off the mounting system once they're done!

And finally no it will not be manufactured by Salvun

Originally Chinese, but the same characters mean the same thing in both Chinese and Japanese. The “nasu” pronunciation is Japanese though.

Please consider adding support for alternate layouts like a 2.25u left space with 1u Fn, full length right shift in addition to the split right shift, and split backspace.

If you could make the layout about as identical to the Wonderland PCB by Maartenwut, that would be ideal. As long as I can put stabilizers under both spacebars.

Please please please do polycarb. I'm dying to find a solid Alice clone in PC.

PC plate as well would be fantastic.

Any foam options for between plate and PCB and/or underneath PCB would be amazing additions.

Hope this does well and is super successful!

+1. I also strongly prefer 2.25 + 1 for left space, full right shift and PC plate.

All the layout options you mentioned are actually supported! We will make sure to post a layout picture in the next days so you can see it. As far as polycarb goes it's still being considered, the results of the poll will help as well. It's not an easy material to work with at all and it will take quite a bit of work to come out nice but in the end if the demand is high enough we'll add it. It's much simpler to do it for plates though so it will probably be a plate option. As far as custom foam goes we are exploring that avenue since we also believe it would be a nice addition. And finally thank you for your support!

Thank you for the feedback! Seems that other people think so as well so the text on will probably be removed for the sake of making it look cleaner.

Actually it's not underglow, it's just a very vibrant red version of the bottom piece. But in general underglow won't be supported.

Title: Re: [IC]Nasu - A premium Alice layout keyboard (Google form for the colors added!)
Post by: mattling9 on Sun, 19 July 2020, 14:57:21
Iv really liked some previous keyboards with script engravings. Makes them look really elegant and luxurious which i think would match this keyboard perfectly.

I did a lil photoshop of the brass weight with 'Nasu' in a script font and matching engraving on the front. Of course you would have to fill the front engraving yourself. Its a super quick photoshop and was really roughly done but i think it would look really damn good given some more time selecting fonts etc..

Is this something you could consider making if enough people are interested?  ;D ;D ;D

Well this is an IC so nothing is really final but we feel like the chin looks nice how it is right now, however if people disagree and want a rounder chin maybe we can work on it.

Looks amazing! However we will probably keep the top simple (as in no engravings or logos). We might change the weight to text only though depending on feedback. As far as the dark red goes It will be decided this week. We will sort through the color IC answers and decide on colors based on that (although dark red looks to be one of the favorites so far).

I too like the more simple front with no engravings.

Regarding the back weight I'd rather have just the logo, but that's just my opinion.

There's plenty of Alice inspired boards with rounded chins at this point. If you're not into the angles, why get invested in this one?

I'm afraid we'll probably be sticking with the more angular chin, we prefer the look of the board that way. Also the renders are all of the same board just some different angles, there haven't been any changes to the chin throughout the IC phase. Sorry for the confusion!

Thanks for the reply! I'm fine with the angulars but would be cool if the chin is a tad wider like the fallacy.

Otherwise the board is stunning, keep the good work up.

Will there be any vendor for NA/Asia?
There will not. The board will only be sold through Keebwerk.
Does this mean the will be shipped from germany to customers? If so i'm in. Because this will save me alot of money on import fees and customs.

In terms of the sale it will probably be pre-order style but that's yet to be determined. The pre-order style sale will allow us to hopefully have shorter wait times than a traditional GB style sale. More details will be unveiled soon!

That is the plan as of now! The keyboards will ship directly from keebwerk.

Thank you for replying so quickly. One last question, in addition to what is being offered as part of this GB; what other parts should one get to have a fully working keyboard? I am not an expert and mostly want to get this as a gift.

Most kits include a PCB, plate, and case. In this case you would need switches, stabilizers, and keycaps.

We're thinking of offering around 150-200 units, while not unlimited we think that's still a good number of boards and would help us keep things manageable to ensure the best quality possible.

Yes, as of now we're dealing with some issues with the pcb manufacturing which will unfortunately delay the arrival of the prototypes. As far as the case prototype goes
it's being shipped to us right now! Should be arriving sometime this week.

As another user mentioned it will not fit standard Alice pcbs. The pcb will be a custom one with a usb c daughterboard.

Is being 6063 (instead of 6061) the actual property that makes this Alice-like design among other CNC Alice-like design a "premium" one?

I'd be really interested to understand why people seem to think that aluminium 6063 should be a "better" material for a keyboard than 6061. Could you help me understand the criteria which you're applying here to measure "better"?

In my world, there are a few good reasons to choose 6063 over 6061, but having a CNC machined piece of aluminium built for use indoors isn't one of them.

I wouldn't say premium. There are plenty Alice-like Keyboards with 6063 (like the "bear" which wasn't more expensive).

It wasn't downgraded at all, it was 6061 all along. But we will get some new quotes with 6063 and potentially some new prototypes and compare!

Well all the samples and prototypes we have from the manufacturer are in 6061 and the end result is really quite good but if it's important to people we can also inquire about 6063.

Title: Re: [IC]Nasu - A premium Alice layout keyboard (First prototype arrived!)
Post by: HephaestusWorks on Fri, 13 November 2020, 13:34:21
The first prototype has arrived! There are a couple of issues which have been resolved. Mainly the gasket system is being redone since the gaskets at the moment are a little bit too small thus not resulting in the best gasket keyboard experience. In addition to that some more space has been added below the pcb to ensure that the keyboard has ample room to flex and work well even with softer plate materials like polycarbonate or POM.

Here are some prototype pictures for you to enjoy,we will be taking better pictures of many different angles sometime in the next days!

Again, which of these properties do you care about for your keyboard? Corrosion is important when it’s for outdoors. Extrudability doesn’t really matter here. So what is it that makes you care about 6063?

Some factories don't work with 6061 at all because it doesn't anodize as nicely as 6063, that may be one example

dude, I didn't say that 6061 alu wouldn't be a nice keyboard. but it's just a fact, that the surface and the anodize is better / higher quality. just compare a 6061 and 6063 by yourself at a keeb community meeting.

It's cool that HephaestusWorks will check out 6063 and look out for the difference, then we will see what he thinks about it.

I'd be really interested to understand why people seem to think that aluminium 6063 should be a "better" material for a keyboard than 6061. Could you help me understand the criteria which you're applying here to measure "better"?

In my world, there are a few good reasons to choose 6063 over 6061, but having a CNC machined piece of aluminium built for use indoors isn't one of them.

Again, which of these properties do you care about for your keyboard? Corrosion is important when it’s for outdoors. Extrudability doesn’t really matter here. So what is it that makes you care about 6063?

dude, I didn't say that 6061 alu wouldn't be a nice keyboard. but it's just a fact, that the surface and the anodize is better / higher quality. just compare a 6061 and 6063 by yourself at a keeb community meeting.

It's cool that HephaestusWorks will check out 6063 and look out for the difference, then we will see what he thinks about it.

Thanks for educating me on why you’re preferring 6063. I saw people asking for Alu 6063 in a few places and really wanted to understand what they were looking for.

The first prototype has arrived! There are a couple of issues which have been resolved. Mainly the gasket system is being redone since the gaskets at the moment are a little bit too small thus not resulting in the best gasket keyboard experience. In addition to that some more space has been added below the pcb to ensure that the keyboard has ample room to flex and work well even with softer plate materials like polycarbonate or POM.

Here are some prototype pictures for you to enjoy, we will be taking better pictures of many different angles sometime in the next days!



Thank you for sharing the photos of the prototype! Looks great!

You think we're can change the bottom weight and rubber feet to be something like this? It would look as beautiful on the bottom as it does on the top.

Right now i think the current weight, weight logo and rubber feet let the beautiful aesthetic of the board down.

Appreciate the kind words! There will be a navy blue available, we will be releasing the pantones by the end of the week!

Unfortunately that will not be an option during the group buy however we may consider taking custom requests afterwards.

Thank you very much for your support! As things currently stand we're probably not going to be able to start the sale within the year, however it will be very early next year. As far as the sale is concerned we are still figuring out how it will be but we'll consider all options!

Awesome work on the keyboard an Im excited to hear that the GB will happen soon :D. Have you decided how many units will be available? you say the GB will be open for a month or until the limit is hit, so does this mean there is a High soft cap on how many keebs there will be, and that the keyboard wont be sold out in the first 10 seconds? :D

It's Topre for me so I'm out, but I have to say: this is one of the most striking boards I've seen in a while. Well, as configured, the top is anyway. mattling9 makes a good point for this board. The attention to detail on the bottom, as configured, is not worthy of the rest of the board. While I was screening the renders, I was thinking, "Wow" and "Damn" and "That was a great choice." and then, when I saw the pics of the bottom: the mismatched materials, the cheap-a** 3m bump-ons, I was thinking, "That's a shame."

Too... I see you guys are talking about a gasket and there are no photos of such a thing in the renders.

Hi everyone,
Just wanted to let everyone know that the project is in fact not dead. We know this has been going very slowly but we ask for your understanding.
Life happens and sometimes it's not the easiest to focus on a project in conjunction with everything else. That said the prototype is getting built this week and the details finalized by the end of the week.
We're currently aiming for an early to mid June release as everything other than the sound tests are ready. Once again we're very sorry for the lack of updates but we're asking that you bear with us for the few weeks left until the GB.

Don’t want to be a Debbie downer but the lack of responsiveness during this IC phase is telling for how the fulfillment phase might go.

Well, not really. For a couple of different reasons. The manufacturing and fullfilment phase will be handled by keebwerk for one. Additionally we took our time with the IC precisely so there is no impact in the timeframe of the actual GB. Now when the GB is up there will also be a discord server for more frequent updates and more immediate communication.

Hello everyone! The prototype has finally been built! The current build is using a POM plate and H1's (there are some other random swithces sprinkled in some mod keys because we run out of H1's)
Here is a first picture, we are currently gathering the gear to record a more professional sound test which will be posted in this comment as soon as it's ready.

5 more minutes mom! Jokes aside, we're still trying to record a sound test. Gears all arrived, but making a video to go along with the sound test has been proven tricky. In any case we'll post some of the raw sounds for now and try to record a video in the meantime.

Have you guys thought about sending to streamers for streaming? Nowadays for GB, I'd like to see how the board is structured and built, rather than single typing sound video.

The wait is almost over, the sale itself has been finalized for 25-30 of June. In the meantime we're having a bit of a hard time recording a sound test that reflects reality and we'd really like to post something that's at least close to the real thing.

There's currently no plans to send protos to streamers at least before the actual sale. Making new protos to send out will take a lot of time and might delay the sale for months. But we might send out some units as the GB progresses.

Possible to desolder the one you have and send to streamers to save time and also give people some ideas of it?

GB method will be a pre-order (FCFS style), 250 units and 350€ excluding shipping but including VAT. Price is subject to fluctuate a tiny bit due to some added material costs (the price of raw material has increased by about 20%), we're waiting on the final factory quotes but the price won't increase by more than 15€ if it increases at all.

Been keeping up with this project for while now and im fairly exicted for this to finally happen. But i still have some questions.

Are there any plans for a prototype build video/stream from maybe yourself or a content creator?

Also how is the the bottom part going to turn out? Will it be color matched to the top portion or can you choose what bottom color you want?

There are currently no plans for a build stream but once we record the sound test videos we will record a build/ showcase video to show how the insides are, how to assemble etc.
As far as the bottom piece goes you will be able to pick any color you want. If you want a matching top and bottom you'll be able to do that no issue, as well as combine different colors.

Hyped. Price is a bit high, but it's understandable considering what's happening (the Gothic70's price went up by over 25% due to tariffs). Hoping the shipping to CONUS won't be that bad, but I'm already expecting the worse. Customizable top and bottom pieces is a huge plus for me, especially since I absolutely love many of the color combos in the renders. I'm ready for this GB, my wallet is going to be decimated by both this and the Mode65.

Well but that means there wont be a video about this keyboard from a streamer or content creator no?

HephaestusWorks stated that they will record a sound test and possibly a showcase/build video since they have a proto. So my question, if that is happening before the sale, is directed at them.

Yes i would think that you are correct in regards to the content creator statement.
I would personally like if there was at least a showcase video/steram before release so i get a good feel for what im buying exactly.

Hello everyone, first simple sound test is finally recorded. Excuse the tons of feedback, we couldn't figure out how to remove that without disturbing the recording and altering the sounds. That said to answer some of the questions above, we're waiting on a tripod to start recording the videos as well. The video will be a 2/1, the first part will be a showcase of the insides and assembly video and the other will be another sound test of the assembled board. And yes they will both come before the actual sale of the board.

That's still TBA, the date currently is set for June 30th but that might be pushed back by a week or so depending on how the website progresses and of course depending on if the the tests are recorded by then. Like we mentioned we want to get everything out before we start the sale. Very sorry for the constant delays but it's a very busy time for everyone working on this project.

Here are some samples of the red and blue:

Looks like a cool board that I'd like to buy, but I'm concerned with how little info there is so close to the GB.
What are the layouts for this board? Is it only the one showed in pictures? No stepped caps?
Any form of ETA for shipping? How many units?

I am also looking for this keyboard: alice style + sold in EU + Gasket mount + decent price should a very good combination.

However, I am also very concerned with this project and GB, 1 day from the group by and no info is available (units, time, what extras are available - wrist rest, plates, pcb, etc.).
Hence it is understandable the team is working really hard, and building a keyboard is not an easy task. However, some additional respect (therefore transparency) for the people interested would be appreciated.

Hope more info gets available.

What are the layouts for this board? Is it only the one showed in pictures? No stepped caps?
Any form of ETA for shipping? How many units?
Most of these questions have been answered in comments in the thread but we'll edit them into the post as well. The layout is the standard alice layout:
(https://i.postimg.cc/rm3qYCMR/Wanderland-Layouts-01-2048x729.png)

The available units will be 250 with an MOQ of 150.

As far as the ETA, it's currently 5 months but the factory will give us a better estimate once production has started. Obviously there are a lot of things that can affect that
timeline currently so please take that with a grain of salt.

I am also looking for this keyboard: alice style + sold in EU + Gasket mount + decent price should a very good combination.

However, I am also very concerned with this project and GB, 1 day from the group by and no info is available (units, time, what extras are available - wrist rest, plates, pcb, etc.).
Hence it is understandable the team is working really hard, and building a keyboard is not an easy task. However, some additional respect (therefore transparency) for the people interested would be appreciated.

Hope more info gets available.
Time is being scheduled, right now and will not be revealed til the actual day of the GB. Like we mentioned on the other comment, everything you are requesting has been discussed above.
But to answer your question: 250 units, no time yet, you will be able to add extra plates and pcbs to your order, no wrist rest in the GB.

Also your layout shows 4 macros while the proto only has 3

Alright alright, it's here everyone! The preview video can be found here (https://youtu.be/-SeWPNWmdMk)
Now for some updates. For starters regarding the colors the deep grey will most likely be removed for simplicities sake, at least for this round.
Here are some samples of the red and blue:

Finally regarding the sale, the time will be announced soon. Thank you everyone for your patience with this project! It's almost time!!!

Is the deep purple color still running? Are there samples of that color?
We don't have anodization samples just yet but we are matching it to PANTONE  20-0120 TPM Rose Onyx
of which we have a pantone sample (it is the one on the left)

Can you provide us with all the available options and their corresponding price before the start of the actual GB?

This makes it much easier to make a decision without stressing out once the GB itself has started.

It has the leaf spring plate. The only plate that doesn't have the leaf spring is the POM. We felt that the flex provided by the leaf spring really complimented the metal plates. If you want a non real spring alu plate there will be files available after the GB so you can cut your own.

Lastly, will any foam, or other included on the packaging (case and pcb-plate foam)?

Thank you, and once more looking forward for tomorrow's GB.

Yes, the pcb is solder only. And we will be cutting some custom pieces of EVA foam, but only for the case. So no foam in between the plate and pcb.

Is it going to be like that in the final version? If I buy it E-White or Black, is it going to have a silver color under the keyboard? Or it will be the same color as the rest of it?

Thanks!

The color of the prototype pictured is black top and silver bottom. You'll be able to choose what color you want for each of those pieces. So if you want an E-white top and bottom you can do that, or if you want an e-white top and a black bottom for example.

Website is currently being hammered. Everyone please give us some time to get it back up. Keebwerk says it will be done in 30 minutes. Please do not visit the website until then because it's crashing it and basically reseting any progress on getting it back up. For any questions please contact one of our members on discord Scaevola the caveman#0180

The configurator is great, the fast reactions to get it up have also been super. To save us all stress next time it might be better to set a fixed time delay if things go wrong to prevent the refresh spam and FOMO. The updates via the forums have definitely helped alot, so great stuff there!

In the configurator the ALU Silver plate looks very white, is that the case or is it really silver silver?

It does not, the plate is a standard 1.5mm. We'll let keebwerk know so they can fix that error. Very sorry for the confusion.

Hi HephaestusWorks,

Silly question. But this means the buyer will still have to solder the switches on?

“ Please be aware of:
this is a barebone keyboard – We assemble your board ready for you to place your switches and caps”

Not that your team will assemble and solder the switches on for the buyer right?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, the sentence was probably reused from the Mega. product page (which is a hotswap board).
In this case we most likely will have to take the case appart, solder our own switches on the pcb and put it back together.

The only option of Keebwerk even having switches for your order is if you purchase the one offered switch from the configurator.

Spoke to keebwerk about this, they accidentally transferred the text from the mega web page, which is hot swap. The Nasu will not come assembled and you'll have to solder it yourself.

Hi HephaestusWorks,

Silly question. But this means the buyer will still have to solder the switches on?

“ Please be aware of:
this is a barebone keyboard – We assemble your board ready for you to place your switches and caps”

Not that your team will assemble and solder the switches on for the buyer right?

Thanks in advance!
Spoke to keebwerk about this, they accidentally transferred the text from the mega web page, which is hot swap. The Nasu will not come assembled and you'll have to solder it yourself.

Thanks for sharing. Thought of just asking to clarify my doubts. I’m looking for hotswap options as I’m an idiot with soldering at the moment. The purple nasu looks really nice though…..  :confused:

I will try the millmax, the same PCB creator has made other boards on the past and, they supported that.
Unfortunately I don't have many switches in stock, and I want to try different plates as well. Therefore, for this type of experimentation it is always good a hotswap board, so lets see how it goes.

Nevertheless, I feel that keebwerk is missing an opportunity by not having a hotswap version. Thus, attending the price advantage, I don't see many people buying plates and PCBs just for the sake of experimentation.

Nevertheless, looking for the board in 5-6 months  ;D

Well, it was a conscious design decision not to include hot swap. We feel that hotswapable boards feel well, kinda horrible. But obviously it's up to you to do what you want with your pcb.

Well, it was a conscious design decision not to include hot swap. We feel that hotswapable boards feel, a little bad if not done properly. There's nothing wrong with them obviously, just a personal decision not to include them as we felt that's not representative of the board and experience we wanted to deliver. But obviously it's up to you to do what you want with your pcb.

How do hotswap sockets make a board feel different at all?
Because the switches can move in the sockets. The soldered board is one rigid unit. While the hot swap is either, not connected to the pcb at all, allowing for play. Additionally if you remove all the switches the plate falls off. The other way to do hotswap is with standoffs that screw into the plate and keep rhe plate and pcb together. Which is bad because it creates hard spots around the places of the screws, a little counterintuitive on a gasket board that's supposed to create a comfortable feel.

This might be kind of true for 3 pin switches, but not for 5 pin, which are the clear standard in the community. If the plate is well made it will not be a problem.

And I don't see how the plate falling off is relevant? If you desolder all the switches and take them off, the plate will also fall off...    And there's a neat little trick to make the plate not fall off which everyone uses, which is to not remove all the switches at the same time...

Sarcastic tone aside, from our experiment 5 pins also suffer from the same issue. Also falling off is a little relevant since one of the supposed nifty little features of hotswap is the ability to ya know, hot swap switches without opening the board. We personally haven't yet come across a board that you can desolder without opening. Now thank you for your snarky comment but I don't feel like we have to elaborate further.

Ah yes, I love when I am taking a single switch out from my hotswap pcb and the whole pcb falls off and then the whole keyboard falls apart, damn you hotswap pcbs

THE PCB WILL FALL OFF IF YOU TAKE OUT ALL THE SWITCHES AT THE SAME TIME.
How are you not understanding this?



Also, if your 5 pin swiches wobble in hotswap sockets, you either have a swich housing problem or a plate problem (cheese grate plate or bad tolerances).

I might be wrong, but in case of a case foam that is less of an issue in terms of damaging the PCB and the plate.

Furthermore, I believe people change their switches differently specially on custom hotswap boards. On my case, for instance I prefer to take both apart from the case and disassemble as I see fit, I saw the same suggestion on some "how-to" on youtube.

Lastly, no harm on including a note on the keyboard highlighting how to replace switches on the hotswap version.

Oh we understand alright. On the last comment we were just highlighting your non sensical comparison to the pcb falling off after being desoldered. Also, different switches have different tolerances, it's not all about the plate and pcb design, although it does play the biggest role.

P.S: just because you don't remove all the switches at once it doesn't mean that the assembly will go flawlessly, if the pcb isn't supported from underneath. There have been many occasions of the pcb being pushed down from something random, enough that you have to disassemble the board to get it back in place. That's why newer boards implement the screw and standoff on rhe plate system.

No, not really haha. It's just a very pointless debate that happened for..... some unknown reason. Considering that Nasu doesn't even have hot swap. We didn't think that being honest about why we didn't include an option was a crime, but at this rate we'll probably have to hire at attorney to give vague answers and leave everyone equally unsatisfied.

This video says he can't tell a difference between hotswap sockets and soldered in terms of sound... from your response I was expecting the video to say hotswap sounds worse.

But we're definitely most excited about the purple.

I did white white silver/pom. Still think I should get red base but keeping it all white gives the most flexibility for various sets and might look better with brass than red. hmmmm

Yes, we most likely will. We are currently figuring out the logistics of that, shipping will obviously have to be paid again since the volume and mass essentially doubles.. But anyone who wanted it had their chance, so we don't see why we should keep the limitation. That said we're giving buyers some more time, probably untill Friday or Saturday. But we'll let you know for sure by Friday.

In for a purple top, e-white bottom, with blue alu plate and a pom plate extra! Purple and blue looked awesome together on the configurator and thought it would be cooler than just purple on purple. And very glad I got a chance to do a purple top / e-white bottom build after I passed over this option on the ESNTL TKL for maroon and white instead.

This is my first alice-style board, been waiting for a nice looking GB for a couple months now. Love the color options and flexibility and it looks like it will be a very solid board.

While this wasn't on my radar at all until the GB post showed up in r/mechgroupbuys, it is very quickly shooting to the top of my list of most-anticipated GB boards that I have pending completion!

GLWGB, eagerly awaiting mine.  :thumb:

Just ordered. Btw, any particular reason you go with silicon gaskets instead of poron gaskets?
Yes, our vendor keebwerk actually recommended silicone, and after testing both materials on the first prototypes we felt that the silicone provided an overall more unique and comfortable typing experience and acoustic profile.
Sg, looking for a discord server for getting updates easier
The server is being made as we speak, will go live tomorrow evening most likely.
So, aren't you going to create a GB thread?

We will, there are people who don't want to join a discord server just for updates. But we're making the server as well, purely because it's way more direct.

Usually, the GB thread gonna be live during the GB, I guess the GB thread gonna be created after the GB ended? Btw, how many units have sold so far?

Well it's gonna be made in the next few days, but other than manufacturing updates a GB thread isn't really needed currently. So there isn't any rush.
As far as units go we're currently at 180

Alright everyone, so we're opening double orders tomorrow (Sunday). There are exactly 30 units left. How it's gonna go is , you email keebwerk support and cancel your old order. Then just configure the 2 boards and accessories in the configurator as normal and order from the keebwerk website.

Important note. It's a big process so you WON'T have the option to change the order. So please consider carefully when picking. Thank you!

Opening time: 4pm GMT+2 (German time)

As an additional note if anyone wants to place a double order tomorrow please contact keebwerk today for the cancellation so things run a little smoother tomorrow. (If you have already placed an order you have a guaranteed spot so don't worry about the cap).
