I`ve got some questions:
1. Is the HHKB Layout compatible with an ISO Layout?
2. Could you post some renders of the HHKB? (I know you said that they were done rendering on the IC, but I haven't seen them, maybe I'm blind)
3. Could you post the available layouts for the HHKB?

The plate from the DO60 gb will be for a tray mount case, not usable with the Chiwi60. You will need the top mount plate included in the Chiwi60 kit.

Tray mount drops in and is screwed down by the PCB to the case. You can find a lot of these on kbdfans, the Tina case or 5° case for example.

Top mount, the plate is screwed to the top of the case, pretty much standard in any custom.

Top mount is preferred in the community, it's a sign of a premium product. It is much nicer to type on.

I would drop sennin an email asking to refund the plate that you purchased during the PCB GB.
You will need to give him the details of the order.
It may take a little while though as I'd imagine that he'd be receiving quite a lot of emails due to the back to back group buys as well as his usual influx of emails from his store.

It is possible to have PVD of another color, not gold?  I mean brass case with another color for pvd

Is this pseudo hipro like M65A (keycaps not really sink in case) or real hipro like Duck Viper / KMAC Happy (keycaps beautifully snuggedly sinking)?

Hi,
The kit has plate for build.
And plate you order in DO60 GB is not for this case :)

High profile that hide the edge of caps, you can take a look on new pics.

Quick question:

1. any prototype of the HHKB one?
2. any prototype of the Brass one?
3. is the Aluminum 6061?
4. is the Stabilizer coming with HHKB option with 6u wire?

That brass case sounds awesome! Might have to join this.

Couple questions.
1) Is there any finish on the brass to help prevent corrosion?
2) Wasn't aware of the DO60 PCB, how is programming for it and where can I find more information about it?
3) Where does the nameplate go? I didn't notice it in any of the renders

Also, I see that on the brass case, the option for universal USB port type is $15 but on the aluminum one it's only $5. Is there a reason for this $10 difference?

1. It's mirror finish PVD coated like the plate.
2. The PCB runs on QMK
3. The nameplate (which is also PVD coated) is mounted to the underside of the polycarbonate base.

Really liking the white hhkb version but I have a couple of questions,

1. Should the blocker corners have the same radius as the upper inner corners?
2. Will you be making a prototype of the hhkb version before the main production begins?
3. The 6U spacebar should be off-centered, right?

4. is the Stabilizer coming with HHKB option with 6u wire?

1. yes, but we have to make it after CNY, and prototype might not do any surface treatment. safe time to do testing
2. once brass version reach MoQ, we'll do it, make sure the quality is nice.
3. yes, 7000 series is too expensive O_Q
4. we offer stabilizer cover most layout no matter which layout you chose, you can check "* stabilizer pack contains"  section

Also, I see that on the brass case, the option for universal USB port type is $15 but on the aluminum one it's only $5. Is there a reason for this $10 difference?
1. PVD treatment will prevent that.
2. it is powered by QMK, we're working on how to do that without even single command line.
3. on the bottom side

Are there pictures of the layouts supported by each plate? I was hoping for 2u shift with split spacebar (hopefully in 2.75/1.25/2.25u configuration) support.
2u shift version got too less interesting, we're not able to make it under the quantity :(

2. Will you be making a prototype of the hhkb version before the main production begins?
3. The 6U spacebar should be off-centered, right?
1. the radius on upper side is to fit outline of case. but lower side does not have to match outline, we make it shaper.
2. yes, but we have to make it after CNY, and prototype might not do any surface treatment. safe time to do testing
3. correct, just the same as origin hhkb

For check out issue.
Could you send me a mail?
I'll create order manually.
It will be great if you can take screenshot of failure.
And I'll try find out reason  of failure.
I'm not sure if it is related to the attack this morning.
Somebody was trying hack our server, lead high cpu usage, and the server got some issue after that.
I should already solve that and make a simple protection.

My question was if the spacebar mount, where the MX stem goes into the cap, is off-centered? It seems most GMK 6U spacebars are like this. The original HHKB spacebar is center mount, the topre stem goes into the cap in the center of the cap.

Very nice! Would it be possible to see pics comparing what the two different USB ports will look like? I just see a pic of the one fitted for the DO60. Does the universal port look the same, just more open?

Can you tell us what the brass moq is and current number of brass orders? Also it would be great if you could tell us when the brass moq is reached so we know.

Alright thanks. Would appreciate getting notified in time so we can put in a order for aluminum kit if brass moq is not reached.

hard to gauge, but if it's MAO it's definitely not a durable finish

It's not MAO, it's more like a paint finish. ED is short for electrodeposition. Another name is e-coating.

ah, EPD

depends on what the coating is made of, if it's enameled/ceramic coating then yeah it can chip for sure, but if it's something stronger i think less likely

anodizing will always be the more durable option, followed closely by cerakote

of course, anodizing isn't always the most color-correct option and you can't ano white

but anyway

Yes, we've found a solution to compile/flash qmk with gui, but with limited function.
We're looking for modify it, so people are able to use qmk without command lines.

Depend on which PCB you use.

I love white, but can't help being worried about
- durability
- will it get dirty easy
esp. without having to touch this in person.

to buy or not is an easy choice, what color to buy is not!!

White doesn't really get dirty easily, but durability might be a worry since its not anodized.

You can't use standard plates as this is top mounted. The upside is that the plate is included in the kit anyway and top mounted is said to be more stable than tray mount.

What are the prerequisites for handwired build? Wouldn't it still work regardless of whether it's top or tray mounted?

Not sure why they should bait you.
The fact they didn't wanted to give a matching brass bottom might be because they want it to be RGB without making a total new design for bottom, which is totally understandable. 

I'm pretty sure that if they offered it, they want to make it if the MOQ allow it.  Would be a stupid and illogical bait, if they just showed the alu version, i would be already in for alu but since they showed the brass version too, i will be in only when the brass version will offer a different color of PVD.

It is not enough for now depend on the quantity we discuss with manufacturer.
Now, I have to ask if they're willing to make less.
If they do, will the price makes us losing money.
If we're going to lose money, we have to cancel it since the MoQ issue :(

Just asking, the moq of 20 from your manifacturer is for pvd in general or is for each color in PVD? (even tho i know this gb was offering only gold pvd since you said me this already).   

e.g. if in the future you want to make PVD black, gold and purple for example, will the moq be 20 for black, 20 for gold and 20 for purple, or just 20 for any of these colors?

for each color.
although it can be processed with other products for PVD.
But it makes manufacturer feels annoying to make multi colors.
Few people willing to do that even pay higher unit price.

For example.
Getting watch order for $1 profits each, 10000 pcs.
Getting keyboard order for $100 profit each, 10 pcs.
Not body will make keyboard for busy factories.

The other issue is even I begging manufacturer to make it for me with 10 pcs each color.
And they accept.
There will have people ask how about pink, rose gold, purple ...balabalabala, become endless issue.
We've offered so many options, people keep asking if xxx is possible, how about ooo.
If the quantity is enough, okay.
But we don't have money to cover so many options that is far away from MoQ.

For the huge difference between interesting check and group buy result.
I think it is hard to run another round PVD group buy for this model.
I've asked PVD ver. quotation based on the quantity in the interesting check.
But finally get only 1/10 quantity of interesting check result.
I'll ask if manufacturer is willing to do this order.
If they can't, we can only cancel PVD orders.

Got it, i suggest to give it a chance for the next round, pretty sure people are not entering because it is GOLD pvd (which isn't appealing to many).  I heard plenty of people interested in PVD colored which looks awesome.  Pretty sure with a Black/titanium/other colors of pvd that was already with 40+ orders 

Gold pvd is ok for plate and weight, but for the case looks a bit mehhhhh

Has the MOQ been reached yet? If yes, there shouldn’t be a problem right? :)

And oh I wanted to ask, for brass weight at the bottom PC plate, will there be engravings? If yes, what would it be? Do you have a prototype to show? Would you offer the option to customize as well?

I think showing pictures of real life (latest) prototypes might help a lot with buyer's confidence if any :') And of course, reddit marketing would do wonders! :thumb:

According to Sennin on Discord he's working with the manufacturers to see if they can still do some colors if those didn't meet MOQ. Also from Discord, if you ordered white you're fine.

Are you going to email people who chose a color that didn't make MOQ and ask if they have a different color choice that did or a refund?

To be sure, this is with regards to the Full-Brass Version yes? Not the aluminium ones with brass plates/weights?

This is specifically regarding the black PVD version. AFAIK, all colours that went to the group buy stage are being made.

For all options has only few people chose
Manufacturer offered us an acceptable cost after discuss.
And all the options should be made.
We'll check it again with manufacturer again when submit orders.

Brass with "black" PVD GB won't happen due to the interesting check result.
Nobody will effect because the GB is never launched.

We spend some time to ask them made some options with low quantity.
And finally we find a way to make sure all option be made.

The one that is definitely won’t be made as of now is the Black PVD Brass version.

Hey, everybody!
We just finished all CNC process.
Anodizing and surface treatment should finish soon.
But we just receive white sample, so white might delay for a while.
Hope they can be sent during Aug for white version.
Here's the white case, pic from manufacturer.

You can create your own with autocad :)
We also have 3d file for creo, but since this is a flat item, autocad works fine.
Normally I modify it in autocad, it is smoother(creo got laggy when dealing with too many objects).

I'm guessing that you got the default plate layout which is really unique.
You can buy DO60 PCBs from the doyu studio website. Alternatively, you could ask Sennin if he has any spare universal plates. Wixxzblu has also made a CAD model of a single layout plate for either standard and tsangan bottom row so you can get your own plate cut as well.

Yes, here is the plate file for a more a fixed layout if anybody wants to cut their own. If there is interest in a 5mm acrylic plate file, i may do that as well, show your interest if so.

Hi, guys.
We just update white chiwi extra kit with HHKB layout.
You might want to check them here : https://shopkey.doyustudio.com/001kit00bs
Also, we have some anodized extra kit available in the link :)

Mine arrived (east coast US) and the anodizing quality and color is very good. Everything looks to me, thanks sennin, this GB took a while but I'm happy with the result.

My PCB seems to be broken (keys not registering after bridging with tweezer and manually trying via switch press ... did check before soldering and only the lights underneath are on). I can send proof but is there a way to get a replacement?

I was sent this plate.

Is this what everyone else got?

https://imgur.com/a/BtEzSkj

Was I sent the right one? Does it really not have 6.25 support? and I have to do 6u? and its forced split backspace?

I got the brass version and the OP is simply not responding. Sent him three messages over several weeks. Zero response. Getting irritated by this stuff.

EDIT: OP has responded. I am eating crow. I ordered the wrong plate. Will get a plate cut using Wixxblue's file. Let me know if anyone wants one.

Did you receive the correct plate? There was a universal layout option. The plate you have is the default layout plate with 3u spacebars

I am thinking of doing a small run of clear-coated sandblasted brass bottoms for the chiwi60.
I will be removing the mount for the name plate in favour of CNCing the logo straight onto the bottom since it's already brass anyway.

There should be some brass extras for sale soon but they won't be in the polished gold colour and they definitely won't be as cheap as the GB price (it was grossly underpriced).

Hi,
We're moving hosting to GCP but engineer ****ed up with database.
I've fixed it and the site, work now.
But we changed the theme, lot of image/text need to be replaced.
We're working on the new contents now :)

Speed is because of I turned cache server off when I'm testing web engine speed.
I'm working on how to make it faster even without cache server.

If there's only backspace.
Could you measure the distance of switch between the key has issue and the one of it's left?
Measure both PCB and plate.
it should be 19.05, see which one is not 19.05, should able to spot the issue.

The battery of my digital caliper is dead right now, so I did some testing with GMK keycaps. As you can see the gap between 0 and - is bigger than the other gaps, which means that the two keys are off. You can also see that the tab key is off, which I also had problems with. I have not tested any other keys. The switches used are new PCB mounted Gateron Blacks.

Yes I just confirmed that some of switches are a little off.
Some plates might not work.

see what we can do for that.
