I got a question about the sound of this board. I currently have a WASD Code and it pings like crazy. This board looks to be of all metal construction, does it ping?

Sorry. Don't know and not gonna test that.

You will get different sounds by installing different switches. Can't really tell what it's going to be like.
Yes, full metal.

As someone who doesn't like gaudy logos on my keyboard and mouse, I'm super grateful that they offer this option. Can't wait.

+1 the photo looks amazing.

Feature says the following:
 2 top case versions, HHKB like and WKL like(No brass logo if you choose WKL)
I guess I'm covered (I want WKL) as long as this doesn't change.

The logo is mounted with screw,if you don't like you can relpcate one with your creation.

here is my CA66 R2 with gmk yuri, the case color is a default option.

Looking at both verious I thought I prefered with logo, but the wkl version seems more  pure and old school  to me  ^-^

In agreement with this. Not a huge fan of WKL and preferred the version with logotype before, but WKL just looks amazing here!

I read that there might be an option for a titanium logo. If that's true, I would definitely choose that.

Since QMK support is important to many, I hope you do :)

I don't know if other PCB's will be compatible or not but if not then QMK is a must for me. I'm so ready to order one of these when the GB drops because the case is one of the most beautiful things I've laid my eyes on.

That is actually purple.  I'm sure it's just the crappy warehouse lighting that makes it look a bit off.

Looking at the build log album, there is a lot of space inside the case.  I'm concerned that this will amplify and resonate sounds.
Is it possible to change the design so only plate space is machined out?

Everything else is fine, but the sound resonance might be a deal breaker for me.

Hard question to answer. The loudness made from typing were just normal to me.
There were some reasons why CA66 was designed like this. Mostly was due to CNC issue.
So it is not changeable.
Thanks for asking. ;D

Fill it with dampening material.

Not as effective as appropriately sized space.  Someone I know already tried.

Doesn't removing that much material just make the case take longer to build? Like instead of having rounded out cutouts where the bolts connect to the top/bottom, couldn't you just make the walls thicker?

Just seems like you are increasing manufacturing cost to reduce weight and make a less rigid case.

Have you considered adding some bolt holes to allow an internal weight to the giant hollow section?

I am not the designer, so what I replied was basically based on our daily conversation.
I myself won't ask anything relates to design and manufacturing, since there is always a reason for "why it's been made like this".
There is one thing confirmed: Yock did reduce more material for reducing weight. He didn't want this keyboard to be as heavy as other keyboard kits.
If there is anything we can improve, that will be put in the next keyboard.
Thanks for the comment.  :D

Awww, I was hoping this keyboard was the kind that would be so heavy as to sever toes if one were to accidentally drop it.
