Oof, sad I missed this, but I will *definitely* keep an eye out for the next one, I heard you'd experiment with different designs/colour options if this GB succeeded? That would interest me even more than this first GB.

Congrats on destroying the MOQ.  :thumb:

Keyboard cases should arrive within the next 2 weeks. Slight delay as we spent a week ordering and testing another prototype, but the aluminium cases are being anodised.


PCBs wont arrive for possibly 3 weeks as we had some issues with the RGB matrix and had to order several prototypes. We are still testing the PCB but should be placing the order over the next few days.

Sorry for the delay, I am hoping that orders will start being dispatched by mid-December. I understand that this is  over a month than originally suggested but I felt that it was necessary to spend time testing any changes we made. I will be emailing all participants shortly.

Will you delay the start of the CU65 group buy or at least extend the GB period?

I'm interested in the CU65, but I won't preorder it without getting the CU80 in my hands.

I understand completely and will definitely consider extending the group buy to around the 20th Dec. At this time the CU65 GB is planned to start on the 1st Dec.

Update:

PCB has been ordered and will take about 4 weeks (although the factory have said they will try to speed up the order).


All of the cases have been milled and were expected to ship last week but our the anodisers that our manufacturer normally uses have been in conflict with the Chinese government and have temporarily halted anodisation. Our manufacturer is looking for a new anodising firm for the CU80 and all of their other clients; the Chinese government has also had issues with several other local anodising firms meaning that finding an alternative is taking longer than expected.


Tai-Hao Keycaps have arrived and are looking good - switches arrived a couple of weeks ago.


Here are some more images of the CU80 cases:

Update 6 that was emailed to customers this morning:


Over the past few weeks since the last update, we have been working with the case manufacturer to find a suitable anodiser that can anodise the cases.


On Monday we learnt that alternative anodisers could not match the space grey colour that was used for the prototype and final product. After some discussion with our case manufacturer we have come to the conclusion that it would be better to change the CU80 case colour to black, as seen on the CU65, as the anodising company that our manufacturer usually works with will not be open until after Chinese New Year.


I understand that some will prefer the space grey to the black but it is the only way we can fulfil all orders in a timely manner. We did not know that the Chinese Government would shut down the company that anodised the prototype, but we have been trying to find alternatives since receiving this news. We will be providing all group buy participants with a £10 refund for each CU80 case they ordered.


I can assure you that only the colour of the case is changing, no other features will be changed or removed.


I apologise for any inconvenience this has caused; I would like to express my deepest regrets and disappointment in not being able to provide you with the exact product you purchased.


The PCB is in production and we are expecting to hear more news regarding dispatch and delivery dates soon.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in contact with us!

I've lost all faith in you guys. Neither the delay (I can wait) nor the lack of backlight (probably I won't use it), but the handling of the problem is the real problem for me (you don't know at all what's the problem and you don't have a quick solution now, so instead of delaying the shipment, finding and fixing the problem, you "solve" the issue by not soldering the LEDs and release the PCB unchanged). Oh and because of rejecting refunds.

Yeah, I can't say I'm overly enthused about the idea of joining any future Caps Unlocked GBs. If refunds aren't being provided, I'll probably just sell my kit as soon as it arrives.

I understand your dissapointment. I can assure you that the decision wasn't made lightly.

Would you prefer that we re-design the PCB (which will incur further delay), or would you prefer to get the keyboard sooner but without LEDs?

I would prefer this scenario:
  • don't ship anything now
  • find the root cause of the problem (take your time even if it will cause delay)
  • evaluate whether this affects only backlighting or can lead to malfunction of the whole keyboard in the future
  • if it is a backlighting-only issue, then you can send me the keyboard without backlighting, I don't care about LEDs, but I care about having a working keyboard
  • if it is NOT a backlighting-only issue, then redesign the PCB and ship after that only (further delay is okay for me if it is needed to get a keyboard without issues)

Update: Kudos for update #7.5!

All this update 7 stuff kinda whizzed past me, so I was on an emotional roller-coaster reading through all the e-mails in sequence.
I have to say I'm glad it turned out the way it did and CU listened to the community, I'm happy to wait a bit longer if that's what it takes to get a solid product without any kinks or issues.

Also big props for being transparent with the updates which is what made this community reaction and re-thinking of your decision possible in the first place.

Update #8

Unfortunately, our manufacturer has not yet responded to our questions, but based on their last messages that were received on Thursday, we suspect that they have shipped the CU80 PCBs.
After further deliberation between everyone on the CU80 team we have decided to take the following course of action based on the feedback received yesterday:

  •         If the manufacturer has shipped the PCBs, we will start shipping orders out as soon as we receive them. This will allow you all to use the CU80 without further delay.
  •         Over the next few months we will re-design the CU80 from scratch and ensure that the RGB LEDs are working. We are looking for a new manufacturer for the CU80 PCB and are we are seriously considering changing the manufacturer of the CU65 PCB.
  •        Once the new PCB has been designed and tested, and we know that it is without fault will be launching the next CU80 group buy (Round 2).
  •        Once the group buy has concluded, it will last for about 14 days, we will be sending all of the orders to our manufacturer and order an additional 75 CU80 PCBs.
  •        Everyone that joined the first CU80 group buy will be getting a new PCB for FREE. Additional payment will not be required from anyone that joined Round 1.



Below are that answers to questions that we believe you may ask after reading that list of actions:


Q: Does this mean that if the next CU80 group buy gets 0 orders we wonít get our replacement PCB?
 A: No, even if we receive 0 orders you will all be getting replacement PCBs. The reason why we wonít be ordering it sooner is because we have had a large amount of interest in the next CU80 group buy and it is less economical to submit two smaller orders compared to one large order.
 
 Q: How do you know the next PCB will work?
 A: We are going to start testing the RGB on smaller macro pads before we start moving up to a CU80 prototype. This will allow us to test different LEDs much faster. We will only order a CU80 prototype once we can get consistent lighting on a smaller macro pad. We will also be sharing progress of our methods as frequently as possible.

 In addition to this we will be sending the macro pad and the CU80 prototype (both with working RGB) to external reviewers. This way you know that we wonít be leading you on and providing you with false information. We havenít decided who will be reviewing the lighting, but we will tell you in due course.
 
In addition to the actions outlined above we are going to be sending you more information, pictures and updates as we have them. I think that more communication will show you that we are committed to the CU80 and fulfilling our goal of bringing more people into the world of customs Ė seriously, you should see our plans for 2020.
 We hope to effectively execute these actions and restore the trust that you placed in us.

If you can confirm that current issues affect only backlighting and not the whole PCB, then I don't need a new PCB.

Hi !

I'm a new enthusiast and i really like your design but i have some questions:

Are all the issues you have encountered solved ?
Is your round 2 rgb ?
Is it possible to remplace the triangular feet by those (I don't like your feet):https://kbdfans.com/products/anodized-cnc-aluminum-feet-1pair

Thanks :)

this is round two that was discussed...
i really wish i had hopped in on the gb earlier...

i didn't find any threads here about the GB R3...
or that the round three has been "suspened" or cancelled...

You're in luck because GB for R3 just opened last week.
