I'm curious how the shipping packaging will be like? Reason I was wondering is because I just saw all the people that are having problems with their Mech27 boards arriving with damages to them.

If these get shipped out before May I'm going to be blown away; that speed is ridiculous.

You guys are probably tired of my recent rant but here we go:

Any idea on which direction the switches will face on the PCB?   I ask because I just discovered today that GMK caps do not work on R3 switches where the led faces north (upside down switch placement).  Well, they work, but have a muted bottoming out since the keycap collides with the switch housing. Yes, this is a thing.  Yes I believe thousands of GMK users have overlooked it. Please for the love of god point the switches correctly.  Pretty sure a large chunk of us will be putting GMK sets on here.
RIP in peace, wallet.

Good question. I just assumed they'd be south facing.

Usually custom PCBs have LEDs oriented toward you (bottom/south).

Just a quick update to keep you guys informed: PayPal has been holding all the money on my account so I had to use my own money to keep things on track. Money was paid for the PCBs and they are already in production. The cases will also go into production shortly so expect everything to be finished by the end of April. I will reply to all the pms soon  :thumb:

Couldn't agree more! Using your own money to move this along and not delay while sorting out Paypal...?? What the actual f*@#? That is amazing- and sets a new high-water mark for GB's. Really great job, jhoang- been a pleasure so far and I can't freaking wait to see how the boards turn out!! Adding my kind thanks to  CJD_Anthony here... you rock!!

Winkeyless is 7u/ 1.5u
Standard cool/ funky layout is 6.25/1.25

... I think.

I believe you are correct.

Standard cool/ funky layout: 1.25 - 0.625(?) - 1.25 - 1.25 - 6.25 - 1.25 - 1.25 - 0.625(?) - 1.25

It was updated to "sorting" directly after "invoicing" on 3/8. They're still manufacturing to my knowledge.

As I know, there is program for MAC OS. and if you use *nix, you have to come to website, config your keymap, save as as HEX, then flash by HIDBootflash. It will be a little difficult for GUI-only guy, but ez for command-line GEEK.
