Good news everyone. I just confirmed with Signature Plastics that all bars 2u and greater have 2u concave molds available. There is no extra charge. This would have only affected the ergo kit since all other kits were labeled as such.

TLDR: Ergo kit 2u bars are no convex at no additional charge

Uhhh this got me confused. I would assume there is nothing unusual about concave 2u spacebars (targeted at Ergodox) and most of the sets offer it either way.
However the usual concern around Ergo kit would be whether we can get at least 2x convex 2u. This is important for Boardwalk users and pretty often they needed to walk away with nothing because of it (looking at you, KAT sets with 6x concave 2u spacebars  :-[ ). Myself included.

Maybe I got it all wrong, as I am not sure what 'c' in kit description means in the first place. Can we agree in community to use at least 'cnx'/'cnv' or just full words?

So, what's the story here in the end...?

I thought the c was for convex. Are all the minibars actually just blank keycaps?

C is for convex.


There was a discussion in the IC thread (while this thread was waiting to be approved) about the bars in the Ergo kit since I forgot to label them. Since then, I have confirmed with SP that there is no charge to make the 2u in the ergo kit convex.

I'll change the kit image shortly. For now, nothing has changed except for the Ergo kit. All other kits were labeled appropriately.

I don't mean to alarm everyone, but this set could be doing much better. Unfortunately the main vendor is a bit worried about it. As of right now we'll need to buy a substantial amount of extras to hit MOQ. There are less than 10 days left, but if you were going to wait to the very last minute, don't.

I'd like to see this set produced, not only because I put a lot of my own precious time into it, but also because this doesn't exist. Although other manufacturer's have improved their SA profile keycaps, Signature Plastics is still considered the best.


I leave you with some more renders:

I hope it hits MOQ, no other way to get space cadet in other colorways until who knows when. Wish the sublegends were more popular in random sets :(

5 days left before GB is closed!

I'll have numbers as soon as vendors update the tracker.

Good news! We've hit MOQ on most kits thanks to extras. Not all vendors are reporting so there's a good chance everything will hot MOQ.

Again, this closes on Friday.

Does this include ergo mods? Little concerned because I just ordered what I needed to cover an ErgoDox EZ, so without ergo mods meeting MOQ I'll only get half a set.

Yes. MKUltra has committed to buying out the Ergo Mods if they need it.

Well, first things first: Thanks nasp for designing this fantastic set and seeing it through. Thanks to the vendors for buying extras and getting this set to the finish line.
It is rough to see that I am one of seven people who opted for NorDe. In face of all the whining whenever there is no NorDe set, I'd like to see more people put their money where their mouths are, otherwise I'll soon have to suffer the fate of weird brackets I never use next to my enter key.
There are lots of great sets running right now and the lead times are certainly a strong deterrent, but I really hope more people will opt for timeless classics like this instead of short-lived meme sets in the future.
Thanks again, nasp.
Best,
Johannes
