                                       Here is the checklist for you:CheckList (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1dmRGodt9F_srrSirdCN4KEO4aRoPs5gyUKoTXlgnXSo/edit#gid=0.)

Hey everyone,


Primus is a 75% size customized keyboard kit. From the appearance, it has a perfectly symmetrical design. It adopts a mature standard primary key design and is available in WK or WKL in the top case. The bottom case partially covered by top case and weight, we still have many mixes and match colorways to meet your needs. The tail-like shape weight is one of my most satisfying design points. With the basic simple lines here and curved lines there, it adds more elegance to the overall design. In the internal structure, the sandwich isolating plate + fully customized gasket design is used.

we have prepared this kit for 1 year and today we present to you the big and final update for Primus.

The short FAQ here:
Why I cannot buy extra weight?
The packaging box is customized for 1 kit, it is very hard for us to do the packaging work if there are 2 weights.

Why I cannot do 2 boxes, one for main kit and one for extras?
international shipping is very expensive, I am trying to make super secure packaging box as smaller as I can, to save customer shipping fee.

Stay safe, stay home and stay healthy

Updates:
1. We have received many PMs about ISO plate, so we are going to do it with MOQ 25.
2. I always want to create something new to this community, something more user friendly for the group-buy.

I'm in. I've been wanting a 75% for a while and had my eye on the 7V but think I'd rather get this.  I've been looking for a board to put SA By The Sea on, I'm thinking E White top and cyan accent on the bottom, though I wonder how well the colors will match.

Couple of questions
1. Will the pcb that will come with this GB support QMK in the future or will there be a separate pcb release/GB for QMK?
2. Can you run it on the 2nd week or last week of May?  :p

Yeah, it occurred to me that having an aluminium weight in an aluminium base seems a bit odd. You may as well save the machining and make a version without a weight at all.

Oh. A keyboard.

I got excited that we were getting a reborn and revised Nexus Slider.

Instead it's just another keyboard that's just slightly less boring than all the other keyboards this year.

Thanks for getting my hopes up with the name confusion...

Couple of questions
1. Will the pcb that will come with this GB support QMK in the future or will there be a separate pcb release/GB for QMK?
2. Can you run it on the 2nd week or last week of May?  :p
1) It will support QMK.
2) est time around May.

How light/dark is the grey? The Pantone 432C seems musch lighter and cooler than the renders. Not sure if it would match with a keyset like GMK Lux, or black would be a better match?

"Weight available in aluminum, brass and Stainless Steel. (alum in anodized, brass in sandblasted+coated, ss in mirror polished)"

Aluminum weight is anodised and you can't anodise white.

Meh. Dawn is also 75 and not as big. There's a lot of factors here. The pedigree of designers of both the board and pcb are well established. The style is very organic compared to other boards. And few offer the available color combos or comboing colors at all. 75 is definitely a popular layout this year, but this board has a lot more going for it than just that.

Hey! got a few Questions since i'm thinking about buying this Board which would be my first Custom.

- Does this Board work with PCB or Plate Mount Switches? I ordered Zilents and was about to clip them to fit my current Board. But i wont do that if this Board uses PCB Mount.

- How much weight does the Brass Weight add? Im not sure if i should pay the extra 75 if the difference is not really noticable.. how much does the Board weight with Standard Configuration?

- What about Keycap Size? How big is the Spacebar and the other Modifier?

Thanks alot! Looking forward to this GB.. would be my first after searching for a Board for Months now :)

https://primus.nexusproject.store/#/ If you go here you can see what it would look like.

I know, would still like to see actual photos vs. the renders if possible.

I'm sure you'd be able to compromise by looking at these two images, imagination is key !

Hey everyone,

Primus is a 75% size customized keyboard kit. From the appearance, it has a perfectly symmetrical design. It adopts a mature standard primary key design and is available in WK or WKL in the top case. The bottom case partially covered by top case and weight, we still have many mixes and match colorways to meet your needs. The tail-like shape weight is one of my most satisfying design points. With the basic simple lines here and curved lines there, it adds more elegance to the overall design. In the internal structure, the sandwich isolating plate + fully customized gasket design is used.

we have prepared this kit for 1 year and today we present to you the big and final update for Primus.

Prototype:
Updated on May 22th.

Last but not least,
Stay safe, stay home and stay healthy
best regards,
Louis

Updates:
1. We have received many PMs about ISO plate, so we are going to do it with MOQ 25.
2. I always want to create something new to this community, something more user friendly for the group-buy.
We have worked on it a few months ago and today we want to present it to you:

This might actually be my first 60> love the design cues on it, and the colors that I'd love on a keyb are easily done with this as well.

Brass is brass, stainless steel is stainless steel, all the other colors are aluminum. Yellow and white are through electrophoresis, the others are anodized.

Hey Thesis, was there a proto done in the e-yellow at all? Or is it the same yellow as the kn2.10 for reference? Cheers

Sadly louis said, we won't be able to buy additional parts else than PCB and plates, because of boxing + shipping issues, sadly.

We're checking out a new supplier and will be comparing it to the KN2.

We color matched the KN2 e-yellow to the previous manufacturer's color after we switched factories (for the KN2) to be consistent with the early prototypes. For the Primus we're considering toning down the color, but like I said we haven't fully decided yet.

For reference, this has a brass weight and what looks to be a brass plate. So exceeding no more than 2475g roughly for an aluminum version. (Switches and stabs considered)

Any update on when the GB will start? Looking forward to this, I was looking at other 75% layouts and this is my preferred layout with the arrow keys and blocker all consistent with the bottom row. Just not sure what colour combination to go with. Having that many choices make it that much more difficult. Likely to go with a grey top, middle black, not sure what bottom - anyone looking at a similar combi?

On the initial post, it says the group buy will run until July 12th, and the number of available units seems reasonable so that maybe there are some left 2 hours after the group buy opens. So, what does this 10.35am Sgt deadline entail?

Too make your(my) life easier, I will enable **Edit After Submit** in the first 30 mins.(from 10am to 10:30am)

So 30 mins for you to edit, **TRIPLE** check your order.
Hope it make sense.

Assuming you're referring to this render (https://i.imgur.com/v0mDuIc.png). That's GMK Merlin (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=102047.0).

After a while of refresh spamming I'm met with a page that says
"PRIMUS GROUP BUY
The form PRIMUS GROUP BUY is no longer accepting responses.
Try contacting the owner of the form if you think this is a mistake."
Did it sell out that fast?

I think the copy of our form we receive after submission is not their confirmation. Most likely they will go through the orders, add up the cost, and then send it back with a list and payment option.

I believe you should receive email with payment link several hours after the form closed if you get a spot (it closed 11am SGT). Then you'll have 24h to pay before your slot is removed and given to next-in-queue.

I do have a question about the secret kit though. Is it going to be colours from the original selection, or is it a seperate secret colour combination that wasn't available to the regular kit.

Secret kit is a full alu kit with unique combo colors that has new color not offered in standard kit. AFAIK everyone who choose secret will get this same combo color.

From the OP, there'll be another slot for during Taeha stream, maybe try that one?

that can't be much more chance than yesterday. it will be busy and chaos during the stream time.
problem for people like me is I can't afford focusing on a particular buy for too long time.  guess it's just time to move on. Thanks louis!

Similar thing happened to me. The form was down, so I waited for it to be fixed while everyone flooded the chat. I guess I got distracted for too long and submitted my form about 15 minutes too late. It sucks to follow a project for over a year only to lose out by a few minutes. Oh, well. I guess I saved myself $500.

I'm so disappointed in myself. I actually got into the form right when it started working, but I thought once we got into the form that meant we had a spot in the 650 so I took my time choosing my options. I didint know the 10:35 customization deadline meant you could change your options after you submitted. I even downloaded a render and photoshopped it really quickly to see what my choices would look like.
i didnt submit until about 10:30. It wasnt until a couple hours after the group buy that i realized there was a tool to do just that in the thread..

That feeling when youre not even on the waitlist part of the list. With a 75% keyboard as pretty as this it feels just like heartbreak.

Lesson learned i guess..

WE CRASHED GOOGLE FORM SERVER

Small pet peeve of mine. We didn't crash any servers. We tripped Google's protection measures though, blocking access to the file because of heavy traffic.
