What's changed since IC begin?

1. Removed badge on the HHKB case due to popular demand
2. Substitute Black finish with Beige (all you beige gang is just too strong)
3. Altered Beige color after receiving prototype, the production unit will be a close match to PANTONE 11-0105 TCX rather than the yellow hue with a greenish tint (Comparison album link click here (https://imgur.com/a/dyWIJNC))
4. RETAINED all plate mounting points (Poron pads from the gasket conversion kit will need to stick onto the protruding plate points)
Without the spacebar and sides' mounting points, the plate's bottom and sides sections do not have enough support during typing which resulting in a very soft or sinking feeling near the spacebar, enter, backspace, L&R shift.

Here is a video demo using all 8 points on an aluminum plate

Here is a sound test video with the gasket conversion kit - Box cream with PBT GOK BoW, no plate or case foam installed

Will the daughterboard from this run be able to screw into the case of the drop run?

It will require some modifications to the new daughter board to install into the Drop run case .

PC fully build with alu plate without any case or PCB foam is about 1.3 KG, Aluminium case build with same plate material is around 2 KG

Do you have any photos of what the PC verison of the board will look like with gasket kit installed? 
Title: Re: [GB] "Hello" M0110 retro classic - LIVE until 8th July
Post by: well_cooper on Sat, 12 June 2021, 07:10:45
Yes and here it is. For the gasket kit, it will come with 2 thicknesses 0.5mm & 8mm. Thin ones will stick on top of the plate at the mounting point to prevent case ping when the plate rebounds during typing. Thick gasket foam will be on the bottom side of the plate and does most of the support work.

In the prototype shown below, I didn't use any thin ones and can not hear any ping while typing

Yes however you might have to desolder the USB C port if it is interfering with daughterboard

I donít have a picture on hand so here is a Mont60 made by FanC, it is the same material for the M0110 PC version.

I love the design of this and it ticks all my usability boxes (corner blockers, HHKB split keys and split space bar) but I'm concerned when I look at all the feedback about poor QC and packaging from the previous run. How is it going to be addressed this time if at all?

This question was addressíed at the end of the IC post. You can read up the drama happened during Dropís run.

The short version is that this run will be manufactured and QCd in house prior to packing and shipping.

That's reassuring to hear. I read over the IC thread and also found this:

So, I joined the Drop GB.  There were a few of problems that I ran into:

the plate didn't actually support split space bar layouts.

It looks like this is still going to be a problem from the images/videos shared so far. Are there any plans to correct this?

I'm aware of that and it was brought up in our discord discussions as well, plate has been fixed since then

No shipping to EU? Was trying to pick one for me, but it doesn't allow me because of the shipping country.

Shipping to limited EU country atm, given shipping rates, can vary drastically depending on where you are and what is the COVID situation is locally. DM on discord if you would like a quote for your country

Already purchased a kit, but had a question. Are you planning on releasing the plate files once the board ships? I'd love to get a (ideally fixed layout) pom plate made.

Can you provide any shots of the beige units that are not a render? I've recently been interested in color matching that 90's beige box color that so many manufacturers were using and it looks like you're pretty damn close here. I'd be curious to see what it actually comes out like in person.

I missed this. Any extras avail

If you are willing to pay the you can get them here:

https://www.monstargears.com/1949505981/?idx=302
Only part of the set is available (they're out of the alphas, for example)

They were available when I posted, I ordered my full set from Monstargear. Sorry to get people excited.

There are prototype shots of the beige both in the IC thread, and the discord. Links for each are found in the OP. I think the beige color may have been updated since those, not sure, you'll have to read the around the thread a little to figure it out.

Well right, I had read that its been changed a bit so I was interested to see the final product. If its close to what it is being shown as in the updated renders then I'm interested. I didn't care for the beige initially offered. Had kind of a green cast to it that I didn't care for.

No worries at any rate. Just hoping to see more of the board.

Will be going for silver as for fancy coloring I'm already getting Swiss. By the time this ships I hope to have it all in place, joined the discord for updates and I hope op does not disappoint. Thanks well_cooper this is amazing :D

Is 3 months still the ETA? This seems like an impossibly fast turnaround compared to every other group buy I've seen/participated it.

Post by: rpiguy9907 on Wed, 14 July 2021, 14:19:22
I think they did a run in China already. Those group buys usually do go a little faster because the factories are already practiced in producing the case. Though I think with IC shortages this does have a chance at being delayed.
