Update 4/12

Cases are still being anodised. Waiting on PCBs.

Well, sorry that I didn't see it; have been busy back then - also, I have personally never dealt with FR4 plates or preparing the files for them, definitely wasn't accounting that as a possiblity when the board was being designed.

Sweet, thanks for letting us know soran. Hope the boards can come back from the anodizer soon!

Is there any chance the boards are going to ship within the year? Just wondering because Iím away for the holidays and will not be able to receive the package.

If you check the mykeyboard discord, you will see that around three days ago david put up a picture of the pcb's that have arrived. Besides that, it seems like they are waiting on confirmation on final parts  before they give us a concrete estimate.

Thank you for the head up. Have to check their discord then.

Sorry for no updates here, but mykeyboard decided to keep every updated at some point and GH slipped by.

NK_ should be getting part of the boards soon, grey anodised units should be also ready to ship out soon.

I am trying to export the dxf plate files to a cnc plasma cutting machine but not sure what program or options should I choose to export to g-code (.nc, .txt, .cnc).

I have tried DXF to G-Code converter (https://sourceforge.net/projects/dxf2gcode/) but I get a .ngc that seems to be ready for a milling machine (with 3 pass). Any idea, tip, or documentation to follow?

that's beyond my expertise, but I'm sure you could get help on reddit or discord.  I'm sure there are people with experience in that area lurking.  Highly less likely to find someone here since the group buy has concluded.

Also, I'm placing this information here for posterity. 

After reaching out to Novelkeys and Soran, I have the following information:

MKB screwed up and included the wrong screws for the case (this also effects all NovelKeys orders).  You may or may not have noticed that when you assemble with the included screws, the top edge will pull apart by a few millimeters. All of the case screws should be M3x4 (ISO 4762).  They screwed up and included 1/2 of them the wrong length (too long). 

Any M3x5 or M3x6 should work.  I would suggest people with powder coated cases to make sure they use screws where the head is fairly compact (not knurled). Those holes get pretty tight on coated cases.

Does anybody know what replacement PCB I can get instead of the original TA-65 PCB that came with it.

Couldn't you just use the KBDFans one:

Oh duh, I forgot.  What about the WT65:

Looks like you can get a hotswap version as well.

I donít know why it wouldnít work.  But you can try to contact Soran and see what he says.  I believe he has an account here and you can send him a direct message.
