flip gave me "AtLibUsbDfu.dll not found". I've selected ATmega32u2 and put the board in bootloader mode. but it gives me that error.

troubleshoot section has solution for the exact problem.

So I finally have my board assembled - and I want to repmap some of the keys.

I have the map downloaded from the online editor - but I can't get DFU to compile.  Which is probably just me being stupid. 

iIs there a source for DFU or another firmware flash tool that will work on OSX? 

I do have access to a Windows machine and i can probably use flip, but I don't want to defile my new keeb by connecting it to PC hardware.

what do you mean get DFU to compile? DFU should already be compiled and ready to go when you downloaded it.

I suspect your keymap is the one that's not compiling

Ah - sorry - from reading the readme file at source-forge it seems that DFU needs to be compiled for LINIX/MAC OS. 

"dfu-programmer-x.x.x.tar.gz contains the source tree for this project.
Download this to build and install on a Linux/Unix/Mac system."

Perhaps you can tell me which file is the executable from the screenshot below?

These instructions are taken from the QMK docs, but you can use homebrew to install all of them

if you're using homebrew, you can use the following commands:

brew tap osx-cross/avr
brew tap PX4/homebrew-px4
brew update
brew install avr-gcc@7
brew link --force avr-gcc@7
brew install dfu-programmer
brew install dfu-util
brew install gcc-arm-none-eabi
brew install avrdude

afterwards on you terminal you can use dfu-programmer to erase the current contents, and then flash the new hex file.

You can download .zip file which includes Windows executable from here. And .tar.gz is source archive and it doesn't include any executable. If you are on Mac or Linux use your favorite package manager like brew, apt, pacman...

EDIT: Ah, the readme already explain this as you can see ...

dfu-programmer-win-x.x.x.zip contains the pre-compiled Windows executable
and the USB drivers for use with Atmel chips in DFU bootloader mode.

The Windows executable does not need any installation or setup. Just
extract the executable and run it.

The Windows driver can be installed when prompted by Windows when a DFU
device is attached. Do not let Windows search for a driver; specify
the path to search for a driver and point it to the .inf file.

Probably No. You need unusual 6.5u space bar for AEK layout. Matias doesn't seem to have the space bar.

Do you have any plans in the future to sell a plate that supports Tai-Hao spacebars (Cherry mounts for the stabilizers, 6.25u)?

Do you know a company that will make the plate out of the same material from a .svg file? Thanks.

You mean FR-4 material? You need to design gerber files and send to pcb factory.

EDIT: For steel and other metal meterials see 'Plate' section of the first post.

Alps64 pcb is currently out of stock.
It will take several weeks before pcb become available again due to Chinese New Year. I'll update first post when it is restocked.

Thank you

Could I add a LED strip on the bottom with those 5v and GND open holes around the space bar location?

Just wanted to know if itís possible. Iíve yet to add my own LED strip to a pcb and wanted to know whether it was possible with this one. Figured all you would need is a ground and 5v supply but again Iíve never done it so I wasnít certain. Will probably try it with a short single color strip.
