Hi, guys!



This is idea by a member from New Zealand who's looking for a custom case.
We design and modify based on the sketch.
But it is too hard to make it with single one.
So we're looking for running a GB to make it become real!

Update '18 Feb 9th - Group Buy launched
Group buy thread : https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=93969

Update '18 Feb 2nd - Price range
We named the Model B as Chiwi60.

And we're doing another poll for hhkb layout.
It is about 6u and 7u spacebar version.
https://goo.gl/forms/tpRwrwIZhqTfBTwu2
If you're not looking for hhkb version, ignore it :)


Update '18 Jan 31 - Price range
Chinese New Year is coming.
Manufacturers are going to enjoy their holiday from early Feb to late Feb.
So leading time will be pretty long.
Estimate time for now is lay may to early June 2018.

Price will around :
Anodized aluminum : $150
Painted white aluminum : $160
Brass : $250

HHKB and universal usb port (Type-C port as default)has extra cost due to quantity.


Update '18 Jan 30 - 2nd sample
Pics : https://imgur.com/gallery/IxE5L/comment/1246798129




The group buy for PCB that support this case is running :
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=93685.0

HHKB body(plate in rendering is not for HHKB):


Update '17 Dec 19 - 1st sample



Manufacturer forgot the engrave legends on the bottom  :-[




Here's IC link : https://goo.gl/forms/F9TeptWGMgkfI3jC2






Main Body
made by anodized aluminum.
Maybe provide some PVD brass version.(Very expensive, you know, not possible to order too many XD)

Mount Plate
will offer 2~3 versions or maybe more if layouts if MoQ reached for each layout.
Made by PVD brass.
Also, you guys can cut your own layout base on our files.
Default layout will be, which fits our DO60 PCB: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=91773.msg2498690#msg2498690


For default layout, only support plate mounted stabilizer.
Also, standard ANSI, ISO 60% universal will also available, support PCB mounted stabilizer.

Bottom plate
is made by polycarbonate(For now, will  check it again after sampling) with sandblast surface.
Nameplate is also PVD brass, insert in bottom plate.

  • Poll
  • protyping again and again
  • Revise again and again
  • launch GB
  • lManufacturing


Looking for more opinions!

For HHKB layout, we might able to make it as an check option.
If it reach MoQ, we can do it :)

We'll also offer 3u cap as kit option.
Surely, also provide other layout as well.

I was in your GB for Filco case, very happy with that one, I think I will get in this one too. How many orders needed to get Brass version to go ahead? Can you give rough estimates of cost for both aluminium and brass version?

Edit: Google form is currently private, can you make it public so people can fill in? Thanks!

For full brass version.
Maybe only 10 sets or even lesser.
Price will be pretty high.
Around 1.7~1.8 times price for brass body compare with anodized aluminum body.
So, total price will be around 1.5~1.6 times I think.
And the shipping fee will become higher.

For now, we haven't see the sampling of pvd brass.
We'll make the sample with 3 or more manufacturers to compare the quantity and cost.
Then we'll get precise price.
And there's some extra features we want for this case with effect the price.
For now, I'll say around $150 or lower for aluminum body version.

Firstly, HHKB blockers please. After that, if you stay true to your $150~ price estimate for the aluminium version I'll buy multiple. If you go through with the Tiffany blue colour and actually make it look good (yet to see someone anodise it properly) I'll buy at least two in that.

Very interested, obviously.

Solid brass with PVD surface treatment.
We'll provide the plate file on git.
In order people want to make some custom options.
Cause our PCB has build in underglow RGB, so we might only offer under glow bottom :)

Solid brass is super sweet but not sure about the super shiny PVD surface treatment.
Also i've read many many complaints that acrylic bottoms are the first to crack/break/snap - even with the M65-A.

So,
We avoid acrylic, and might go ahead with polycarbonate.
More flexable, brings higher strength.
But we'll compare several materials, and chose proper one.

I guess that this could easily be supported in the plate but I don't think the PCB itself does.
You could always use a DZ60 instead.

Unrelated question but does each colour have their own MOQ, and if so how many cases would that be for each? The Tiffany Blue you suggested, Pink (bubblegum/hot), white (that'd have to be powder coated I suppose), etc. would all be colours I'd love to see.

Got it. Not a super small amount of units but I'm pretty sure that with this design and pricing most colours wouldn't have a problem making the cut.

I assume you plan on having some small samples of each colour made at some point?

Not really possible.
We might able to ask for some small piece anodized aluminum samples.
But not able to make samples with different colors for full case.
It cost over $250 for each sample.
If we make sample for each color, it cost thousands.

Only suggestion is may be put a name to the whole thing for easy remember. "Model B" sounds too soft, called it I don't know sennin60 or kiwi60 or something

As any expensive metal case should, this one looks nice, it cannot be other way with any over three hundred bucks buy, but this is nothing new, just another n-th iteration of the same style aluminum-machined-anodized-ala-Mac-case. To say that someone "invented" it is just an exaggeration.

Kit options will be :
1. Case kit only
2. Case + PCB kit
3. Case + PCB + laser engraved white/black keycap kit for default layout
*optional 1 : 70 pcs Kailh Box / Cherry switches include
*optional 2 : cherry PCB stabilizer/plate stabilizer(default layout only)


From IC form,
We will go ahead with following colors:
1. PVD Brass (With limited quantity only)
2. Anodized Black
3. Anodized Gray
4. Anodized purple
5. Anodized rose gold
*6. Powdercoated white (Never tried, we have to make some sample see if the surface is strong enough)

And we'll provide layouts (All mount plate is PVD brass)
1. ANSI universal
2. Our default layout
3. HHKB
4. Split space bar fit most PCBs
5. ISO universal
*6. universal for ANSI/ISO (Only make it under Moq reached)

Hi,
The quotation of brass ver is around 1.6~1.8 times higher than aluminum.
We just need to make sure we won't have too many stock after GB end, or it is too risky  :-X.
We 'll consider the quantity of orders, and make sure orders in first few days will get it.
But for guys order it later, will put on the waiting list.
In order somebody might change their mind, and we can sell them to people on the waiting list.

Why not require a deposit? Good for you and good for the serous buyer.

If people change their mind.
We won't force them to accept it in any conditions before shipping.
Even for custom orders which already processing.
We'll refund them to prevent more issues.

Submitted a form for PVD coated brass case, Tiffany Blue as a backup. Hope this gets made in PVD brass, nothing else like it in the market.  :thumb:

Really interested in Brass and White. Glad to see HHKB support being added from the IC Form.

Can the keys be reprogrammed? The Alt and Win on the right side dont work for me. And the '?' in place of right shift is wack! or is that a Fn layer?

You can pretty much always assume custom boards like this use programmable PCBs (regardless of whether or not they are included in the buy). So yes.

Powdercoated white! Bike frames have been powder coating for a long time and although they put a few layers of clear coat on them the powdercoat is pretty resilient to most light abuse it may get.

I was on the fence but if that powdercoat happens I’m in.
