* Welcome to the MIRA SE Group Buy thread! *
MIRA is an astronomy-themed keyboard design, inspired by the Mira (also known as Omicron Ceti) binary star system in the constellation of Cetus.
(Wikipedia link. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mira))
The MIRA logo font is inspired by a vintage NASA insignia, and the dual circle design stands for the binary star system: a red giant star and a white dwarf star orbiting each other.

Title: [GB] MIRA SE - Custom 80% Keyboard (Closed for orders. Manufacturing phase.)
Post by: ninjadoc on Sat, 28 January 2017, 20:45:28
STATUS UPDATES (in chronological order, latest at the bottom):

Quality check on the boards
-checked at the factory
-placed in the foam insert in the custom "Mira" box
-placed in bubble wrapped bag
-placed in another box and taped shut
-the prototypes were then wrapped in foam and placed in another box for shipping

UPDATE - Due to custom's issues on releasing the PCB's shipped from Korea to China for the Chinese group buy and since we will be utilizing the same PCB's I have to add $2 extra to the PCB cost to cover the custom's fee for our PCB's.I apologize and if there are any additional charges with shipment of our PCB's to China I will take responsibility for those charges.

UPDATE: Last prototype is currently being made as a winkey. LOGO on top has been tweaked and the inside of the case has been changed to make the Mira more compatible with winkeyless's A87 PCB. Once the prototype has been checked production will begin.

UPDATE: April 22 - still working on the last prototype. Two have been made since my last update. The issue is rhe winkeyless PCB support. The A87 PCB is wider than any other PCB and if careful attention on the size of it and the design it is hard to step back and incorparate it. I was also not content with the design of the TX87 - my personal issue - not someone else's. The first prototype in this final stage had two thin walls. The next one was felt to be too wide by EVE and I agreed with him - the widened sides, the subtle change th the side curves, the effect on the USB hole so cables could reach the connector to fit all rhe PCB's - so support for winkeyless's PCB has been dropped. I apologize to the ones that wanted to use it but I can't do it and get the keyboard done. EVE is very good at production and the release should not be delayed much if at all.


UPDATE: May 9 - First let me say when I started working on the Mira I knew nothing about CAD. I'm SLIGHTLY more knowledgeable now.As some of you are aware the Mira was originally designed to utilize a winkeyless PCB.
Hubble's original design was for a WKL version that had too long of blockers and there were other aspects of the design that made it impractacal to produce.


Since I had the CAD files I found others to help revise the design. Due to my lack of knowledge about CAD and not knowing the exact measurements of the variety of PCB's - I was unaware when the dimensions
of the Mira were changed as we were redesigning it and this prevented the A87 form fitting the case.I tried to change the design so the A87, TX87, NERD, B-fake - would fit.I could do it but the increase
required caused the bezel to be widened. EVE, the one manufacturing the Mira,didn't care for the wide body design and I agreed so we've returned to the the prototype everyone's seen and made slight
adjustment to the inner dimensions to improve the TX87 fit. The NERD, B-fake, and Leeku's alps PCB's will also fit.


The logo has been tweaked to decrease the "O'Mira" confusion.


(http://i.imgur.com/TTeXa4ul.jpg)


(http://i.imgur.com/AAuDSWSl.jpg)


(http://i.imgur.com/PrsqfG3l.jpg)


The changes have all taken time and delayed production somewhat. Leeku has been paid for all the PCB's and they have been produced. I will do my best to get photographs when the production begins.


As for my lack of communication there have been several reasons but instead of making excuses I will simply say I understand why GB organizers don't communicate well - if you have nothing to say
you had rather say nothing at all. My head is still sore from me beating my head against the wall in frustration with some of the issues ofrunning a group buy.
I'll try to be better on giving updates.
 
Update: May 30 - sorry about the lack of communication - my PC seems to want to stay in pieces. If anyone lives in or around Cincinnati and has time to help me resuscitate the POS PM me!
Now for the real reason I'm posting - production is expected to begin Thursday - I want to verify with EVE before I mention shipping. The tweaking of the prototype took too long - that's on me. All I can do is apologize and tell you was to try to give you everything I promised.


Update: June 7 - Rui and I reviewed the CAD files with EVE last week and any questions EVE had about the Mira SE have been answered to the best of my knowledge. Production should have begun but I was unable to get a clear ship date. given the conclusion of the Chinese GB for the Moon, the GH GB for the Mira SE, and the GH GB for the Moon it is unclear when production will be finished. I will let everyone know as soon as I get more information.
To stop the rumbling - I have plate files already for alps and have made arrangement with Leeku for the alps PCB's.
                                  - I plan to have a GB for partial plates, brass plates, poly-carbonate plates for the Mira.
                                  - I will not release plate CAD files for plates at this time.
                                  - I will not start an interest check for either of these until I'm satisfied about the progress of the Mira's production and have arranged/have an idea of the cost of the plates.


Update: June 21 - I've been trying to post weekly and I see I blew it this time.


In reference to updates and timelines - I can only ask EVE and zzyjayfree the questions - if they don't answer me I can't walk next door or drive for 30 minutes to ask them face to face. zzyjayfree lives in Canada, EVE in China - if I don't have information I cannot relay it to you.


As it stands - I've paid Leeku for all the PCB's, they have been made, and he is waiting to be told where to ship them.
I will probably ship those to the US buyers myself. The last ones that were sent to China cost $9+ a piece with shipping and custom fees. I will ship them to everyone and you will have two shipping fees. The one from me will be the cost - the $2 paid for customs fees - that way you know I haven't forgotten the extra $2.


Production - interesting that he machines the weights and plates first, then the cases. The cases are produced last because he anodizes them immediately to reduce corrosion.
As for time - realize EVE has 125 cases to machine. I don't know how long it takes to machine the cases but I do know the anodizing has multiple steps in the process. When I get an idea of when the boards will be shipped and will let you know.


Update: July 1 - as mentioned previously, production is in progress and as Photoelectric previously said this week packing and shipping is expected to start in early August. I've requested photos and when available I will post them.

https://imgur.com/a/br9oS (https://imgur.com/a/br9oS)


Update: July 8 - production is moving along. EVE is working on it and I'm going to start working on getting PCB's shipped to me and then to you. To whet your appetite EVE and zzyjayfree have supplied a few more pictures.


http://imgur.com/a/qjiV2 (http://imgur.com/a/qjiV2)


Update: July 18 - most CNC work completed. Anodizing starting up, no pictures yet. Zzyjayfree is on vacation and none available from EVE



UPDATE: July 31 - Sorry about the delay, I was waiting on pictures. EVE is about to start anodizing and is waiting on the PCB's from Leeku. Boards have been made long ago, just waiting for them to arrive at Eve's shop. Without further ado - PICTURES
http://imgur.com/a/FvLfg (http://imgur.com/a/FvLfg)


UPDATE: August 16 - still waiting on more pictures from EVE. I understand the anxiety and frustration on waiting- I'm feeling it too. I've been working on this for over two years, starting with CAD files that had issues to CAD designers with their own agendas. As my updates state on April 22 and May 9 state my attempt to redesign the Mira to fit the winkeyless PCB created a delay in production that we haven't recovered from. I'm reiterating that again so there is no confusion on that. We've almost crossed the finish line now so hang in there for a little longer. All 157 TX87 PCB's have been paid for, manufactured, and shipped to EVE. This is a change from what I said before but it will work better for all of you. 80% of the cost of manufacturing the Mira SE, anodizing it, and the boxes for it has been paid with the remaining 20% to be paid when all is completed and ready to ship. If anyone was wondering where the money is or where it is going, now you know.


Several have asked for plates/spacers to take place of the diffusers. I've asked Eve if that is a possibility.


Assembly - that can be arranged from the same group that is providing it for the Moon. I'm out of town right now and haven't read the thread yet but keep it in mind.



Update: September 8 - anodizing is ongoing
A big thanks to zzyjayfree for obtaining the photos!
(https://i.imgur.com/Cre3ALpl.jpg)
https://imgur.com/a/tcFd9 (https://imgur.com/a/tcFd9)


And all PCB's have been shipped to EVE.
Progress - I'm starting to see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel

Update: December 29, 2017:
Kits are shipping!  Expect an invoice from zzyjayfree for shipping cost, if you have not yet received one.  Please see this post by zzyjayfree regarding tracking information:
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=87310.msg2541036#msg2541036 (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=87310.msg2541036#msg2541036)


Update: January 2, 2018
Any issues with received kits please PM all 3 of us - zzyjayfree, Photoelectric, ninjadoc

UPDATE: January 8, 2018
Information about shipping status update labels on the order verification spreadsheet:
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=87310.msg2545185#msg2545185 (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=87310.msg2545185#msg2545185)

PLEASE CONTACT ZZYJAYFREE, PHOTOELECTRIC, AND NINJADOC if you receive WRONG SIZE SPACEBAR STABILIZER WIRE!  THERE'S AN ISSUE WITH STABILIZER PACKS NOT BEING DISTRIBUTED CORRECTLY.  Regardless of the number on the stabilizer bag, if the size matches what you requested--great, use it!  If not, please let us know ASAP!  Replacement wires will be shipped after all the numbered kits have been delivered, and we've tallied the wires needed for replacements.  In the meantime, if you'd like to trade stabilizer wires with other group buy participants, that could get you a correct size more quickly.

UPDATE: May 8, 2018
Samples of plates should arrive tomorrow. If they look OK I will start the GB, hopefully by the end of the week. Brass price is prohibitive but I will offer them. Plates will be produced in the United States, will be unfinished and not anodized but I may buff them to improve appearance.


UPDATE: May 13, 2018
Plate samples done. Poly-carbonate and aluminum are OK. I think I choose the wrong stainless and there is an error on the alps plate. I will change the stainless and get the spacer done and see how it looks.

Curious of this too. Obviously depends on the state and all that. However a ballpark would be great. $60? Just don't want to be caught off guard.

Also, Ninjadoc, thank you for seeing this GB through. I can't even begin to understand what you undertook to make this happen. That blue while not a "NASA blue" looks absolutely gorgeous. I'm beyond anxious to finally get this thing in to my hands. Looks like I also might need to purchase some more Zealios or something of the likes.

What is everyone going to pick for colors? These colors are amazing and can make some great combinations.

Are the prototype colors actual prototypes with the actual colors we will be seeing or are those just renders?

Kind of disappointed in the grey that was settled on as the grey from the interest check didn't seem as green. If it's really supposed to be like that might have to go with black or blue then.

The Night Sky Blue and the Lunar Gray of the prototypes will be what will be ordered for this group buy, as shown on the photos linked in the OP.  Please keep in mind that in person colors vary significantly based on type and brightness of illumination source.

Congratulations, ninjadoc. You deserve all the praise for making this a reality. This was one of the first IC boards I joined; I decided some time later to bail out, but that leaves me only jealous now.
God speed on your sale.

not compatible, the usb port is top left on the b.87, the case has a cutout in between the end of the f row and beginning of the navigation keys

WOOO I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS!!


- Thanks to everyone for their support in this GB –
Hubble for the initial design, YukTsi for his revisions, and Asilan and EVE for the final rendition of the Mira.
Thank you to FrostyToast for keeping up with the preorders and numbers. I can’t imagine the headache that has been.
Thank you to Zeal for his support and donation of the gold stabilizer set to purchasers of the 57 numbered boards.
Thank you to Limitz for all his support and encouragement when I was ready to stop dealing with this never-ending mess of a group buy.
Thanks to zzyjayfree for finding a manufacturer and dealing with my endless questions and revisions of the Mira.
Thank you to Photoelectric for writing the GB thread and doing the order form for the Mira when I was unable to do so.
Lastly, thank you to Geek Hack and its members for their support of this GB when it seemed like it was sure to fail.

Thank you ninjadoc et al. for all your hard work in order to bring this project to fruition. I just saw Hidden Figures (keeping with the NASA and space theme too :) ) last weekend and I was reminded of a quote from it: "We all get there together or we don't get there at all."

You actually typed this up as I was going to submit my order. If the brass is subject to tarnishing, instead of opening the board up every few months to polish it I was going to consider getting the SS.

Yes, they will be uncoated.  Stainless steel won't be tarnishing.  Brass will tarnish, but just the very top thin layer, and it's apparently fairly easy to make it shiny again (look up brass polishing, there are various products for it or even natural ingredients).  The problem with a brass plate is that there are switches on it, which makes cleaning it difficult.  But a bottom weight is easy to remove and polish as often as you wish.  I think the tarnished brass look goes well with some colors as well, like black.

I'm quite fond of the appearance of weathered brass and I think it's going to look great with the lunar gray case!

When I was in the navy, I spent a great deal of time shining brass valves and fittings on seawater systems. It only takes a few minutes to get it shined up like new, even if it's covered in verdigris. As they won't be exposed to seawater, the weights should take a great deal longer to build up a patina.

Kind of disappointed in the grey that was settled on as the grey from the interest check didn't seem as green. If it's really supposed to be like that might have to go with black or blue then.

I actually think that tarnished metal looks great in most cases. I have a copper lamp on my house, it's a dark orange with a green pattern because it's reacting to it's environment. It just shows that the item has an age and a history. It makes the items unique and beautiful.

tl;dr: I've done a lot of keyboard builds for people in the past, along with my own in-depth passion projects that are kind of crazy at times. I'd be more than happy to help you with your build if you need it. Can do any kind of mod you'd like, for the most part.

I would be more than happy to work on your Mira SE for you if you'd like. I've got a lot of experience with building MX boards for others as well as passion projects of mine involving Alps. I've done restoration of vintage boards and switches/key caps, custom assemblies that involve switch tuning (stickering, lube, SIP sockets, spring swaps), stab clipping and sanding (+ bandaid mod) and lubing, etc. Pretty much everything you could ask for when it comes to custom builds. I do also make my own cables, but I'd recommend you go to others for that as it's more of a personal thing for me. There's tons of great cable makers out there.

I've also done crazy projects like hand cutting the copper weight (http://imgur.com/a/Aqmrw) for my Orion v2, hot swap modding Alps boards, which involves drilling the pads out (http://imgur.com/a/PJgqb) before inserting the holtite sockets, and also a crazy NCR Cherry-lookalike build that's actually Alps. (http://imgur.com/a/dEjGg)

So I'm pretty much down for almost anything you could ask for and will work with you for as long as you might need assistance.

I'm gonna go ahead and suggest E3E. Pretty standup dude that's pretty committed to the hobby, doubt he'll just leave

Yes I sold it to someone in Asia.  If you're missing the 456GT, the LZ might be good too since it has a better PCB and a removable cable.  Just a bit boring compared to the Mira.

Although I agree with you it would be nice to have a simple board again. No leds. Gonna miss the ps2 adapter though

The main distinction this keyboard has is it's strong and unique theme, the idea behind the project.  I liked M65-a for that reason as well--it's unique at the moment and had interesting colors offered, and EXENT is also unique.  There are many keyboard designs that are endlessly derivative of each other and often vary just ever so slightly in details and can be ordered in the same standard black/silver/gray colors.  The Dolphin has a cool, unique design as well.

The texture is more like a 360C - smooth - not like a cheat or Koala. The LZ-SK or the Ergo board are the closest approximate boards I can think of. Maybe the TGR Jane CE would have the same finish.

What can we expect out of the grey. Will it be similar to the sample posted? With that subtle green?

To add to what other posters have mentioned.

Brass also naturally tarnishes over time. Not necessarily a  bad thing, just a different aesthetic.

Some people prefer the more "worn" and "aged" looking patina.

Smooth, I like that word. I have never had any of these boards in hand before, so these don't speak to me texture-wise. As long as the Mira's texture does not feel like fine-grained sandpaper, it's all good. Were the Cheat and Koala boards finishes rough to the hand?

For the first 57 slots for engraving, it's going to be on the square weight of the insert so the only way to see it is if it's opened right?

Also, will the engraving be offered for both steel weights as well as on the brass?

Are there any renders or pictures of prototypes of these?

Thanks.

Honestly i think it would be cool if it was visible on the outside of the weight (though pretty tiny font) and if money allowed we got some cool planetary design printed onto it, kind of like how Rama would like to do this with the m65-a weights [attachimg=1]



Also I had a question, i know in the interest check someone was pitching maybe running another buy (if they could find the dimensions) for a steel/aliminum diffuser replacement instead of the Acrylic diffuser this comes with for those of us not planning to use the RGB. Did anything ever come of that? Or is it still in the works?

I think the engraving will be on the inside part of the weights.  If you order 2 weights, only one will be engraved (your primary selected weight), but yes, you can choose either brass or steel for the engraving.

The current plan is to only have the number engraved, as each engraving requires a separate CAD file.   If more becomes available (probably for extra fee), ninjadoc will let us know.

1. I don't think there's a limit, within reason.  If you're looking to get like 10, ask ninja directly.
2. submit the order form more than once.
3. No, you only get one numbered weight period (your primary selected weight), even if you order extra weights.

I've heard of this too, but I'm actually not sure how it works on many of the modern PCBs as almost everyone uses USB. Only a few PCBs support NKRO over USB, despite supporting it in the matrix.

I heard a while back that converting it to PS2 and then back to USB can do it, but that sounds kind of sketchy and dubious.

Generally used are 2x3x4 rectangular LEDs and 1.8mm small LEDs (down the first page for photos and description).  Either of those work.

I believe most get them from eBay (or Aliexpress).

before I order,

Who all are the reputable US based keyboard assemblers?
Need a bonafide, trustworthy person.
Trying to avoid another TheChemist disappearing with $800+ of my gear.

Thanks

Ninjadoc and I were talking about this a few nights ago. He'll finalize the assembler list soon.

Whoever it will be though, the goal is to keep things consistent. IE: all assemblers using the same solder - I advocate for Kester 44 - ultimately it's ninjadoc's call though.

I haven't been following the threads too much, but just want to make sure if I can assemble the keyboard WITHOUT the acrylic diffurer.

I'm almost sure it can but just wanted a 100% confirmation  ;)

This is not possible. The diffuser/bottom half was made to be integral.

I've had issues with gmk and original dyesubs rubbing against 2x3x4.

Hmm, strange that I haven't had the same issues.  In any event, 1.8mm LEDs seem like a good idea... if they come in colors one wants.  I only see them in fairly standard colors, unfortunately.  I have a few different 2x3x4 cyans and interesting warm pink ones that I love.  But for standard colors, 1.8mm is the way to go now, especially if they fit switches with SIP sockets without falling out easily (I like how 2x3x4 fit tightly into the bottom stem mold).

The diffuser is part of the MIRA SE case design, the aluminum is cut to include it, so if you don't insert the diffuser, there'll be a gap in the case.

They come in a pretty nice selection. In my experience, they also fit flush and snug in SIP sockets and the LED recesses for Cherry switches. I myself bought quite a few 2x3x4mm varieties and encountered the clearance issues described with Gateron PBT blanks, doubleshot OG Cherry caps, and OG Dyesubs.

when hubbs started the project, NASA had been around (officially) 57 years. perhaps that means the number of engraved keyboards should be increased to 58?

Let's talk about how cool it isn't and how I don't need it.

Let me know if you find an excuse. I'm trying to find one since the IC has started and failed miserably so far.

Don't find an excuse! :)
Please buy one!

Guys, this article describes me.  This board may be my last for a while.  I get so happy when a new board comes in that I get to customize.  I've got problems.

Anyone with any mock up skills think they could do some renders of SA Carbon on these cases? Trying to figure out with color would go best with it (assuming probably just black, but would really like to see what the grey/green and blue would look like)

I think Black or Silver would be your best bet for Carbon SA.  The gray might be a wrong shade due to some amount of olive green in it. You can just view a gray prototype photo in a browser window next to carbon SA photo, and do the same for the blue, to get an idea of how they will mix.

P.S.: but for fun, here are very rough mock-ups.  I took the second photograph from this photo album: http://imgur.com/a/N2Onx

and colored the black case.  Keep in mind I've not seen MIRA prototype colors in person, so these mockups can well be way off in lightness or shade:

With the slight shade of olive green, I think DSA/SA Retro goes extremely well. The earth toned Burgundy/Brown fits like a glove with the subtle green hue. In terms of upcoming sets, GMK Plum could be a great match.

Here is the Retro colorway on my olive green Jane - I think the combination will look nice on the Lunar Grey as well:

I'm super bummed GMK Retro didn't happen, it would have been an "endgame" type set for me.  I know lots of people were against the idea of using non-sphericals for that colorway, but I love thick Cherry profile doubleshots + those colors.  Hopefully some day it will be relaunched successfully.  (I've had DSA Retro before, early on, but DSA is not my thing).

Wow thanks for doing that and so quickly! Yea the black does look awesome, but that Lunar Gray actually looks much better with it then I thought. I have troubled minds on the way and am trying to pick up SA Camping when it's released so I think I might actually go with the Lunar gray. I think that slight green tint will work well with them.

Also I already have a space grey/jet black rama-65a coming so think having a more unique color for this would be good. Lunar Grey it is!

#51 should mean something to you since you have exactly 51 posts when you post this.   :))

I'm interested in a numbered Mira if you want to sell it.

I actually really like the hand polished the way it was done. You see tiny lines arcing across the circle which looks similar to what you would see looking at a picture of a planet (like Saturn or something)

So 2 weeks from February 12, or ~February 26.

That was one of the earlier prototypes, not MIRA SE.  As far as I know, there are no plans to make any more after this GB.  If you really want red, you can always re-anodize a case locally, though that will cost a good deal more money.  If you want a good quality red keyboard, you can try looking for a red Duck Orion kit on the Classifieds.

Great! I was also wondering what the difference between a stainless steel and aluminum top plate would have besides weight? If I want to put linear switches in here, which one would be more optimal, or does it not really matter?
Title: Re: [GB] MIRA SE - Custom 80% Keyboard (Order until 2/12)
Post by: Photoelectric on Thu, 09 February 2017, 00:12:45
Steel is denser/heavier, more rigid.  Less dampening for your fingertips if you punch your keys hard :)  It's not that there will be any plate bending with a rigid case like this, but there will be some difference in sound/dampening.  If you want a softer typing experience, pick aluminum.  If you're going to use something like MX Clears stock, steel is fine for fingers.  That's my personal subjective opinion.  Also, since this keyboard design uses top-mounted plate, even the steel shouldn't be too bad on fingers.
(There are plastic keyboards with steel plates, like Filcos, but they feel soft to type on because of the softer plastic case.  Metal plate + metal case = noticeably more rigid/dense.)

Post by: E3E on Thu, 09 February 2017, 00:46:49
Yeah, I pretty much agree as well. I've heard some interesting things, like since stainless steel is more rigid, it'll be more true to the force curves of the switches, but it goes beyond that, of course. Force curves don't really tell you much about the impact you're putting on your joints when you're bottoming out on a switch. For tactile -ALPS- switches, using a steel plate in a rigid case with something like Alps SKCM Brown or SKCM Amber is killer on your joints, even SKCM Orange got to me on my bent case Infinity and caused mild RSI. 
 
One of the most pleasant typing experiences I've had has been with my NCR Alps build with SKCL Browns, using an original OEM Alps plate in a G8X-3000 case. It has just enough flex, and the case makes it softer too, so it just ends up being very pleasant.
 
On an aluminum custom, if you want a more rounded feel, I'd go with aluminum plates. Linears do feel good in rigid cases though, but I think they'd feel good with aluminum too.

I also agree that top-mounted cases are much more forgiving on one's fingers. Tray cases are much more harsh in comparison. There is more inherent flex in the plate on top-mounted designs, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. Too much rigidity is bad and so is too much flex.

I've seen the above statement mentioned quite frequently.
I want to say that it's subjective based on personal preference.
For instance, I prefer steel plates for tactile switches over aluminum.
If possible, I recommend experiencing different plate/switch combinations.

I originally subscribed to this, however my SKCLs feel quite nice on a very bendy alu plate, G80s with Blacks are PCB mount, and at least the 356 Mini was designed to be used with linears without a plate supporting the alphas and an extra flexible PCB.

So yeah, no hard and fast rules.

True that, true that.

Definitely subjective and more a thing of preference. It's the same kind of thing you see when people debate if ABS or PBT goes better with this or that kind of switch. It's all subjective and the things you hear people recommend are coming from their personal preferences and/or indoctrination, lol.

Just noticed this in the Mech27 GB thread--a pretty good approximation of what the MIRA acrylic diffuser will look like with lights on:

https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=84703.msg2359120#msg2359120

I think our diffuser is slightly thinner, and you won't see those bolts through the acrylic, as they will be neatly covered by the aluminum "standoffs" from the bottom piece.

The circles gradually evolved to the larger being an"O" the size of the MIRA and the smaller "o" looking more like an apostrophe. The larger one is shrinking slightly, the smaller one is increasing somewhat to be more like binary suns instead of "O'MIRA". Thus I can't give you an exact measurement yet.

Sorry, I edited my post.  It should be brass (I asked).  That photograph makes it look more silver, but brass is more golden.  If you want silver, get stainless steel.  Photos of the brass weight are here:

Please note the sand-blasted texture of that prototype brass weight.  It was hand-polished as a test.  Personally I'm a fan of the sand-blasted texture.
Color accuracy is also not 100%.

Just to confirm before I pull the trigger, if I want such a look I should get the interstellar with brass weights and not lunar gray right? It looks like there's a tint of green to me :)

Can I get a diameter measurement on the two circles (earth/moon) on the weight insert? I'm working on a little sm'tin-somethin.

The circles gradually evolved to the larger being an"O" the size of the MIRA and the smaller "o" looking more like an apostrophe. The larger one is shrinking slightly, the smaller one is increasing somewhat to be more like binary suns instead of "O'MIRA". Thus I can't give you an exact measurement yet.

You're talking about the engraving on the top of the board above the arrow keys? I'm looking to do something special with the brass weight insert but I need to make sure the tooling will work for the diameter of the circles.

Assuming that you don't want LED's on anything other than the bottom, is this board just simply soldering the switches and programming the board?  How customizable is the programming?  Can you program for Volume +/-, etc?

Thank you!

Thank you very, very much.  I apologize for all the questions, but last one.  Do you have a picture of the exact lunar grey one?  I can't seem to spot the lunar grey.  Looking to buy it to match GMK hydro, and believe that the grey would match better, but I just love how the blue looks.

Really, really appreciate the help!

I'm afraid there's no good quality (very color-accurate) photo available for lunar gray :(  If I could get my hands on a sample...   The photos linked in the OP should give you *some* idea, but I can't confirm whether that's exactly what it will look like in person:  http://imgur.com/a/M1NLm

I think the Blue will be a better match to Hydro, especially because the Hydro blue is also on the cool side from the photos I've seen.  The Gray is supposed to have some military green to it.

Pro Tip: Get an extra plate.
1. They are super cheap in this GB (Could easily be double in other GBs)
2. Uses a standard PCB that can be bought later if needed, so you do not need to get it right now, but the plate is unique

Why?
1. If you ever want to resell the board later you can sell it as unbuilt
2. If you ever want to change the layout, or try other switches you can do that without desoldering the old PCB/Plate and just get a PCB and new switches. Two keyboards in one!

You can message Leeku directly on these forums to get one directly from him. Very easy process.

That said, the Mira is A87 compatible, so GON pcbs as well as WKL (not 100% son this one) are compatible as well.

The recent LZ-CLS and Mech27-TKL boards use that PCB as well as the TX-84/87 from kin25, for instance. I don't know about older ones (probably more LZ keyboards too).

In the west (Outside of Korea), ie in r/mechmarket especially, kit prices don't differ much from assembled prices and I typically see assembled boards go for much more. My Octagon v1 unbuilt kit sold for less than my assembled kit, for instance.

But yeah, having two plates/PCBs is pretty nifty if you want to have two different setups for the same board, though honestly... You're most likely going to end up favoring one over another and so you'll likely see the other one not be used much at that point.

You can always sell it though.

I plan on using this till the end of time, most likely, so I think you have a stronger point. I will probably just favor one type of switch and go with that (thinking 65 or 67g Zealios). I'm sticking to a full kit (no extras).

Once invoices goes out, there will be no number changing.  It's a complex GB as it is, and the weights will be coming along with the kits from the factory.  We have orders from many different countries here.  So as to not mess anything up as much as possible, there should be no number swapping until stuff gets delivered.

By the way, during the IC, people did try to get specific numbers, so I don't think many will want to trade anyway.

Also after looking at the price changes in the PCB could ninja reach out if prices do indeed change. I don't think I'd be the only one who'd be willing to help with extra costs if it's necessary.

This makes sense.  I wasn't going to make it more complicated than it already is.  I appreciate the work that went into organizing this GB.  I was just asking for those 10 spots that have not been claimed to be open to be swapped.

That is all.  Good luck to those who's going to get a numbered spot.   ;)

Here is the link to check your MIRA order as submitted!  Please PM me if anything looks wrong.  The list is sorted alphabetically by username.  Shipping cost is NOT INCLUDED!

>>> CLICK HERE FOR ORDER CHECK LINK <<< (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1TCDZcFQ9xTXeYg5rAniPHBbrZ67OtDi7PlLL6u8hcXI/edit?usp=sharing)

A reminder to everyone: 1 PCB is INCLUDED in your kit.  "Extra" PCB means you get MORE THAN ONE.

Is there an updated list of who has what limited spot?

The numbers 1-57 will be added to the order verification spreadsheet this evening.

So do the newly numbered kits all come with Zeal stabs? This is great news, as I would have had to get some for a few custom boards.

Hey photo just wondering if the steel/aluminum spacer still had a shot? I know you said it'd be looked into more after chinese new year, i don't expect it to be something added to the original invoice, but any shot of it still happening during this GB and just receiving another invoice for it along with the shipping for current GB members that decide they want it?

Soon, after order verification.

I have a confirmation from ZealPC that all 57 numbered slot holders will receive the stabilizers :D
If you have a number and did not order a winkeyless board, please PM me whether you intend to use a 7x spacebar or 6.25x spacebar with your MIRA.  Winkeyless orders will go with 7x stabilizers, naturally.

If anyone that missed out on a number really wants the gold screw-in stabs, Massdrop is running a drop for them for the next day or so. If you miss that one, Zeal is also running a GB for them on his site, though I believe the wait may be a little longer.

If it is a TX87 PCB then Zeals screw in stabs did not have a problem with the screws being close to the pads. At least not with a standard layout.

I'd just use a couple layers of teflon (pipe) tape over the stabilizer screws and such for insulation.  It's thin, stretchy, and won't interfere with anything.

LOL PayPal fees.  So I took a bit of time to calculate the exact (to +/-$0.01, due to possible rounding difference in PayPal) fees for US and foreign payments.  If anyone finds it useful for other transactions, the fees are as follows:

Fee for payment for goods to a US account coming from a US customer is 2.9% + $0.30 or      Fee_domestic = ((0.029*initial amount) + $0.30)/0.971
Fee for payment for goods to a US account coming from foreign customer is 3.9% + $0.30 or   Fee_foreign ~= ((0.039*initial amount) +$0.30)/0.961

(ninja informed me that the first batch of invoices was slightly undercharging, because 3% and 4% are actually not good approximations for correct PayPal fees.  But it's been fixed now for the later invoices.  You can see the values updated on the published spreadsheet.)

I don't know about UK fees, you'll have to calculate them based on PayPal fees for the UK.  But again, it's not as straightforward as a direct number like 4.4%.  You have to use a formula to calculate a fee like ones I listed above.  ninja has verified that the results are accurate to within 1 cent, and he's had paid invoices from multiple countries already, including from Asia.

Hello,

Question about the numbered spots. I was under the impression that the $40 deposit paid for the numbered spots would go towards the final price. Is this no longer the case / was never the case?

Thank you

That was never the case.  It was discussed long ago during the IC process.  DrHubble took that money and used it for his own purposes, he was the one who promised for it to be a true deposit.  You are getting the engraving and the stabilizers as a donation at this point.

You know, it is what it is but at this point I wish we could just scrub DrHubble's name off the whole thing. He might've been the genesis of this project, but ninjadoc and you pulled this off the trash heap and got it rolling while people profited off of the initial deposits and selling the prototypes.

My hat's off to ninjadoc on this one.  :thumb:

FYI, any order sales/transfers must be confirmed with me or ninjadoc BEFORE they happen, not after.  For PayPal protection and what not.

Please don't buy or sell any spots directly from buyers/sellers.

(A proper order transfer would be invoicing the new buyer (by ninjadoc), then upon successful payment refunding the original buyer.)

So I will be moving within the next 3-ish months to an undecided location... so my address will not be what I put on the original form.

I've decided it will be easier to just use a friend to ship the board to, so how can I go about changing my shipping address? Should I wait until actual shipping is being charged?

I don't want to pay the invoice and then have it shipped to my current apartment to avoid it getting lost to the void :P

The current invoice is only for the price of the board.  Shipping has not been invoiced yet (as stated in the OP, shipping charge is separate).  You can PM me to specify your preferred shipping address.

Everyone who ordered has to pay by the deadline.  Unpaid orders will be cancelled.  That's how group buys work.  After payment deadline, collected funds are transferred to manufacturer along with the summaries of parts to produce and an order is placed to have those parts made.

I think the MoQ's been achieved, yes.  If I remember correctly, ninjadoc posted something about producing in batches of about 60 at a time back during the IC thread, which may or may not be the case still, but I'm pretty sure we're good with the current number of people who've joined the GB and already paid.

PCB mounted cherry stabilizers

Use PCB mounted switches. Although you can use plate mounted switches, PCB mounted switches will be much more sturdier

To be honest, they weren't as tactile as I expected. For background, I had installed them on a MiniVan with DSA key caps. I have recently tried out Zealios 67g on ZZ96 with GMK caps that I liked better than on my MiniVan, however I'm just cautious of using them and not enjoying them. For me, the bump on the mod switches, while a bit more scratchy, is quite a bit more pronounced. I feel like they will be great lubed (I just don't have any at the moment to test out).

Trying to decide how to handle the bottom row. I purchased Winkey, can any one confirm if these three options are available with the TX87? Thinking of going for the middle option - retaining the function key but getting that 7u space bar.

1.25, 1.25, 1.25, 6.25, 1.25, 1.25, 1.25, 1.25
1.25, 1, 1.25, 7, 1.25, 1, 1, 1.25

Only the first and third layouts are possible for this PCB + MIRA plate.  I can't say I've seen the middle layout before on any custom PCB/plate (unless maybe it's on some of those odd modern keyboards with random bottom row layouts).

I built two 60% boards both with aluminum plates and both with acrylic cases. The only notable difference is the switches: 67g Zealios vs. MOD-M's. The MOD switches definitely have a larger bump, but unlike you, I think I prefer the 67g Zealios. But they're both great for medium weight (is this a term? oh well) typists.

$40 for a set of stabs? Hard pass. That's just daylight robbery at that price point.

I'm glad Zeal is supplying some for this GB, because there is no way I'm buying a set @ retail. That markup is just insane.

It comes down to relative value. I'll spend $30,000 on a car, but I can still balk at absurdly expensive tires. When Cherry stabs are only $12, a 350% increase is quite drastic.

I can guarantee the $400 keyboard is much closer to the true production value, than a $40 set of stabs. That's why I said the markup is what is insane.

It would be the equivalent of the GB price for the Mira going to $800.

Please PM me with address change as soon as you learn what the new address will be.  Since shipping will be done from China, it probably won't matter for shipping charges if your address changes from one location in a country to another location within the same country.  With that said, we'd like to minimize any last minute changes to avoid any possible confusion on the manufacturer's end, since this is a many-part group buy.

UPDATE :)

I got some MIRA prototype case tops today from ninjadoc for photographing purposes (since my potato is a bit better :) ) 

Here's a color-calibrated photo album that shows Night Sky Blue (medium blue-gray with purple tinge) and Lunar Gray (medium-dark gray with a tint of military green):
http://imgur.com/a/Ni2h1


Remember that these are for color reference only.  Anodized aluminum is subject to glare, especially indoors, and so brightness level varies depending on angle, etc.  The blue is actually a medium blue (not a light blue, nor dark blue).

The first set of photographs is taken next to a window with very overcast (snowing heavily now) light.  The second set is taken under "full spectrum" CFL bulbs.  I've also included some common GMK keycap colors at the end next to the tops, for reference.  The last two photos show original Cherry classic beige doubleshots next to both top colors.

The blue is more shimmery and reflective.  The gray is more matte.  The surface texture is quite smooth for both, fine grain.

. . .

Shipping invoices will hopefully start going out soon--I hope within a week.

It is the blue, correct.  But again, because it's shiny and there's glare, don't judge the brightness.  Just the shade.  (also subject to how yellow your indoor illumination is--these were color-balanced).

If anyone decides that they'd really like a different shade of aluminum for any part in their order, send me a PM :)  This offer only applies to aluminum parts.

UPDATE :)

I got some MIRA prototype case tops today from ninjadoc for photographing purposes (since my potato is a bit better :) ) 

Here's a color-calibrated photo album that shows Night Sky Blue (medium blue-gray with purple tinge) and Lunar Gray (medium-dark gray with a tint of military green):
http://imgur.com/a/Ni2h1


Remember that these are for color reference only.  Anodized aluminum is subject to glare, especially indoors, and so brightness level varies depending on angle, etc.  The blue is actually a medium blue (not a light blue, nor dark blue).

The first set of photographs is taken next to a window with very overcast (snowing heavily now) light.  The second set is taken under "full spectrum" CFL bulbs.  I've also included some common GMK keycap colors at the end next to the tops, for reference.  The last two photos show original Cherry classic beige doubleshots next to both top colors.

The blue is more shimmery and reflective.  The gray is more matte.  The surface texture is quite smooth for both, fine grain.

. . .

Shipping invoices will hopefully start going out soon--I hope within a week.



This is crazy helpful!!!   Should be standard MO for custom keyboard group buys   ;D ;D :thumb: :thumb:

Technically, you would not see the asymmetry between the pole-to-pole diameter and around-the-equator diameter like that.  The difference is very small in Earth's case:

It would be more noticeable for Saturn.

He meant the compatibility with an alternative PCB: A.87 which is from winkeyless.kr -- not the winkeyless layout.  The 84/86-key layout with 7x spacebar and 1.5x modifiers is still supported with the TX87 PCB that's included in this group buy.  Ninja hoped to make the case compatible with more PCB types for those who were interested in that.

They were sorting out prototype design issues--as ninja had posted, there were attempts to make it compatible with more PCBs, which involved some internal changes and such.  Hence the delay.  But again, it doesn't mean there will be a delay in the final delivery time compared to the estimate (which was up to the end of June for delivery).

not sure if youd be able to answer Photo but since this is dropping mid-end june will we be getting the R6 zeal stabs with it that are dropping then? Wondering if I should go in for the R6 GB.

I sincerely hope what we get is closer to OP as well as that's my preference too (and what I paid for). Hard to tell from that mockup though, so we'll wait and see. Still excited, but do hope we get the same bezels as OP.

I hope ninja can answer it better, but the bezel is supposed to be just slightly thicker than those prototypes, not significantly thicker.  For structural integrity.  I picked that image to show the tweak to the logo.  (I'm not involved in the actual communication with the CAD person nor the factory, I'm just passing on what know).

Makes sense. That image didn't look significantly wider, so not too worried.

Once again, the "changes" are supposed to be minor tweaks to improve the overall design (structural integrity, for example).  They are not "very big differences".  You are not even seeing the final product, so don't panic.

There's just a separation now between the logo and the word, and the size of the double star circles was tweaked slightly.  It's a small change, but enough to not look like "O'MIRA" anymore.

New bezel.

The revised logo looks great, but the bezel is a massive disappointment (as the thinness was a massive positive for me). I hope its identical to those color accurate pictures.

The case will be widened by literally 1mm on the sides from the prototype for structural reasons (internal cut-outs around the PCB).  I posted that image to show the logo tweak.  "bait and switch"  is quite a bit of an exaggeration.  (You are transferring your order anyway).

i agree with xondat on this one. that new render looks like the "tweaks" have changed more than just the logo. were these changes made for structural integrity, or to accommodate the b.87 pcb? changes like this should not be happening so last-minute, especially without input of everyone who has already paid.

ninja's absence has been a bit unsettling through this whole process also. where is the man behind the curtain?

That new photo isn't a render. That photo was meant to show the logo and isn't representative of the edge changes.

I've made the text I posted above bold for emphasis.  Take out your rulers and check how long 1mm is.  Add that on the left and right side of the prototype.  You get the result.

I support the changes in the logo, and I won't bank on the bezel changes being an issue. 2mm is really nothing.

That's a very big difference. Why wasn't this addressed before payment, and why are we only finding out now?

(I know it's Ninja that manages this, so that's more directed towards him.)

I thought it was addressed. The original prototype was designed for the A87. I'm not going to poing fingers - but the board size was changed without my knowledge and I didn't know enough CAD to know it. I now know more CAD than before and can pick up issues like this.

I understand my absence is unsettling. I'm not going to make excuses but I now understand the lack of communication from leaders of group buys. If you have nothing to say or you don't like what you would say then you find it better to say nothing at all.

Pretty ridiculous comment. "Bait and Switch" implies fraud, which is a serious accusation. Even using it in quotation marks is pretty bs.

The board is being widened by a mm. I'm not arguing that it's better or worse, but I am saying it's super inaccurate to call this a "bait and switch". Is it a design change? Sure. Is it a "bait and switch", definitely not.

As Limitz has said "bait and switch" implies charging for a higher price item and replacing it with a cheaper, more inferior product. The design changes were neither - simply an attempt to produce the item I said I would fitting all the PCB's I said would fit the Mira. As I've said in the second post in the thread - I can't do that without a total redesign and a larger delay than we've had.
I find it interesting that you of all people would say this - how smooth was it getting your board produced?

Are people here looking at different pictures or something? Are they misinterpretation shadows or something for part of the bezel? I have a pretty good eye for detail and you can BARELY see any thickness change. And honestly if you do notice that by some way, and have a problem with that small of a change first off HOLY ****, secondly, you probably shouldnt join group buys then. Small changes like that happen ALL the time in group buys especially ones for cases being ran for the first time. Id wager thats its extremely rare for a final version of a case to exactly match the design/prototype.

Let's not forget how the Mira almost became a dead project but miraculously was revived 🙂. Also I'm all for the updated logo, and don't really mind the very insignificant dimension change (although thinner does seem to be more aesthetically pleasing but 1 mm per side is barely noticeable.)

Thank you for all your hard work and hopefully we'll see the end to the GB in the near future!

I do notice it here now. But you also need to keep in mind comparing these two pictures is deceptive and makes the difference look larger then it actually would be. The one on the left is taken from a left angle which can deceive the eye and show the right side of the bezel as much smaller when comparing it to a front on view, especially a front view that seems to be taken from closer up then the other one, which also makes it look bigger. So while I can now notice it, i'd still wager theres barely any difference.

You're still comparing a close up to a shot taken further back. Look it does look larger, I'm just saying the difference wouldn't be as noticable if you compared similar pictures. Are you going to notice a 1mm difference? yea, but not as much as these photos are making you think.

EVE, the one manufacturing the Mira,didn't care for the wide body design and I agreed so we've returned to the the prototype everyone's seen and made slight
adjustment to the inner dimensions to improve the TX87 fit. The NERD, B-fake, and Leeku's alps PCB's will also fit.

From the update post - which is the second post in the thread.

THIN bezels!
The wide body Mira only exists as a prototype and will not be produced at this time.

The thin bezel is definitely more elegant on the Mira. I feel like thick bezels were more of a trend a few years back. They look good on those boards, but the Mira's sleek design doesn't really work with it well.

The thick bezel was never going to be a thing for this keyboard.  The prototype thick bezel was a mistake for that specific prototype unit.  The relevant portion of that prototype is the updated logo.

Mira is an 8 degree board, which is basically the most shallow angle found in angled customs. Shouldn't be bad I wouldn't think.

Duck Black Bird is 7 degrees. The new Alu Clueboard is 4.5 degrees  :p

I personally think the base height (lowest row to table) of the board also makes a huge difference. SA was almost unusable for me on my TX87 because even the lowest row was pretty high, worked a lot better on boards that have a similar angle but were lower overall it worked so much better.

Mira is pretty tall, though. Also, consider that a more "basic" mech like a Filco or realforce is at an ever flatter angle.

Just add a month to the past timeline, since that's how long it took to redesign the case

Timelines don't mean much when production has just started tbh.

Look at the X60, the original timeline had the case shipping out end of December. LZ CLS is slated to ship out next week, but we haven't heard anything about that. Viper v2 batch 2 was delayed by something like 4 weeks.

Delays happen man, as frustrating as it is, you just gotta roll with the punches.

This is so difficult haha. I really dislike the #40...

I'll take the numbered weight haha

That spot is not available--i_need_a_bath posted that he will be keeping his order earlier in the thread (on this very page).

I'm really just messing around at this point.

Is there an Alps TKL PCB that fits the Mira and if so, could you provide with a link?

email leeku11@gmail.com to buy one.

WARNING

he is lazy as all hell, and will take 3 months to mail it.  You have to make sure he knows that you want it faster than that BS
Thanks! Sent him an email.

Edit: Leeku answered, super fast. He still has Alps PCBs that fit the MIRA. Just without the plate unfortunately. Send me a PM if you have the files for it or are interested in a plate and maybe we can get something going.

Update is in the OP. The design has been clarified with EVE and production should have begun. There were tweaks but no major redesign. There are designs for alps plates for the Mira and once production has gotten into full swing and I can provide pictures I will begin an interest check for alps plates and PCB's, partial plates, polycarbonate plates, and brass plates. At this point in time I will not release CAD files for plates and plan on looking at pricing for the above items once I know the timeline for the Mira SE.

Looking to sell my spot, #33 on the spreadsheet.
Unfortunately it seems like the board will still take about a month or two before we get it so I'm looking to redirect some funds to some more urgent financial needs (university, etc) if possible.
For quick specs, it's WK Silver case with Pink Plate and Steel Weight, Limited Edition #12. I paid $53.42 CAD for the #12 and $586.23 CAD on the board for a total of $639.65 CAD. Let me know if your interested and we'll sort it out with ninjadoc and co.

So... Are we in production yet? Sorry, that wasn't clear to me

 I've heard through the grape vine that production started last week

this is starting to get a little frustrating. why are we not getting more updates as things happen? everyone has paid. this is not the time to make changes to the design, just get the order in and update us on production.
I've been asking for weeks now for a revised timeline and have been told it's coming but am still waiting. Starting to get a bit frustrated as well. I know there's a bit of delay due to unforseen circumstances, which is fine, however I would like to know what this means in terms of delivery date.

No worries man, thanks for the update. Hopefully I'm not being annoying and I really appreciate all the work you did (and are still doing) on the project.

Probably depends on which prototype it was / which factory made it.  Which case was this one?  The cases I've handled for a day when I was taking photos had a very silky / satiny texture; those were made by EVE.  Different from the harder rougher texture of my LZ-GH.

Moistgun said it was a GB OMIRA (the one with the weird off-center corners) he got from the Chinese GB. Your best bet is to PM him and ask about it though.

We joked about it being "the skinripper," because when you run your skin along it, it leaves a gross line of dead skin. It felt almost rubberized, I was hoping for a finish closer to LZ/TGR boards.

I'm still hyped either way, I'm just curious.

Moist and I have the same version and I was really surprised at the feel of it as well.  Silky/satiny is a good way to describe it though, and my friend remarked that it felt like very short felt.

The group buy you're thinking of knowingly chose a bad manu.

1. It's easy to tell who is ****posting and who actually cares - you should've done your research. My cases finished production on the 16th of November. It was the weights (the design mainly) that took us further. 27's cases arrived on the 16th of January. Therefore my cases were done 2 months before his arrived. This means there was absolutely no way to judge quality.

I would be interested in taking over your spot if someone would be looking to take over mine. The 19th is my birthday so it would be pretty cool to have that number. I also wouldn't mind switching WK for WKL. WKL looks much better now that I've seen more of it.

Interestingly enough I've done that with all of the purchases in the GB and this is the first time I've heard of anyone getting an email about it.

Paypal requires you to send a product, they dont technically allow group buys. So the GB runner lies and says its shipped so Paypal doesnt freeze the account.

That's interesting.  If one of these group buys goes south, does this process affect the buyer's ability to get money back from PayPal?  I always assumed that people preferred PayPal because it offers some level of protection.  Has anyone gone through the process of attempting a reimbursement if the item's already been marked as shipped and PayPal's already released the funds?

Actually this is something that should have only affected the recent few slot transfers.  What happened was ninja used the 'shipped' option to clear the funds from being held by paypal instead of 'processed' -- an accidental mistake on his part.  As soon as I saw the posts here about shipping notifications, I realized that must have been the root cause.  The original payments months ago were set to 'processed' correctly, which is PayPal's preferred method of marking preorders without a clear shipping date (he had talked to PayPal a number of times about how to approach this group buy before he started taking payments).  Anyone whose order has been marked as "shipped" (hence the e-mails) and if if bothers you, please send a PM to ninja to sort it out.

Having your order marked as shipped does _not_ affect your ability to file a dispute at all so don't be worried. The seller has to provide ACTIVE or COMPLETED tracking to satisfy the PayPal dispute team.

I apologize to anyone that received the notices and I will be happy to re-invoice all that received them - just PM me.
In order for funds to be available orders must be processed or shipped. The option is in a drop down menu and if you get distracted, your computer or theirs lags, you twitch - you may hit the wrong option. If you look in the thread of one of LZ's recent GB's he apparently made the same error on an order or two. Thanks to Photoelectric for her more articulate explanation and the GB's participants for their patience and understanding.

Doing that only accomplishes one thing for you in a group buy - it locks the organizers account. The organizer can't access the funds and PayPal won't refund them to the buyer. That can result in both you and other participants in whatever GB that is done in not receiving their money or their product. I know this has happened in the past in other GB's resulting in a bad outcome for the organizer of the GB and the participants. That is why PayPal states a dispute should be done only as a last resort.

If you can't get one right now, you might have better luck when they ship. Usually right as a GB ships, some get listed on classifieds or /r/mechmarket for close to GB price.

Not sure about how much experience you have with expensive customs like this but generally any clicky switch is looked down upon (sence they are inconsistent and generally hated by everyone, especially with some weird ass mod). Not sure if you have been exposed to the Gateron clone switch circle jerk where everyone assumes they are "better" even though they are super inconstant and the stems in them wobble a LOT side to side, not to mention a 1:1 cherry ripoff/copy/counterfeit switch..... Gateron is snake oil.

This is going to sound super elitist but IMO there are only a couple criteria of switch anatomy that I would even think about putting in this board:

Stems: Cherry Clear, Cherry Vintage Black, Cherry Speed, Cherry Silent, Mod M
Housings: Cherry or MOD
Springs: (as much as i hate sprit) Sprit gold plated springs
Lube: Techkeys krytox (viscosity depending on stem type)


But I mean its your board so do whatever you want its just like sacrilege seeing someone disrespect a board like this with clickys.  :))

I see your point. They are Jailhouse blues though, so they're technically not really clicky any more at all.

Ignorant question, but what's the benefit of swapping out the springs in my Mod-Ms to spirit gold plated? Was already going to take them apart to lube them.

I wouldn't even put MOD switches on that list. They're not gaterons, but they're not better than MX linears. Vintage Browns are much better, though hard to find.

No need to swap springs on MOD switches, if you do go that way.

Kin sells springs at similar weights to sprit springs, message him on telegram. I think it's like $3 per 100 with $1 shipping. They're not gold, but that doesn't matter.

Isn't the point of a custom to customize it to one's own liking? I think the only disrespect here is harping on someone for putting, god forbid, his/her preferred switch in his/her custom.

With my personal experiences Sprit has a different (lighter, then heavy at the end) force curve that i like more then stock cherrys. Plus the gold looks dank with clear housings.

The demerit to using sprit springs, is, of course, that they're sprit springs.

Buy them from oco, at least, so that sprit doesn't get any money from it.

You should put in whatever kind of switch you like best. It's your board and you should build it the way that will provide the most enjoyment for you.

Not everyone buys things just to resell them. Alas, there are far better things to invest money in than keyboards if one is just looking to make profit.

wait a second, your going to put gateron blues in a Mira?  :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:


RIP resale value

I have a second plate if I decide to sell, so that's not really a concern.

Might put mod-m's in still instead, still undecided.

What kind of switch should I be putting in?

You should put in whatever kind of switch you like best. It's your board and you should build it the way that will provide the most enjoyment for you.

Not everyone buys things just to resell them. Alas, there are far better things to invest money in than keyboards if one is just looking to make profit.
Pretty much, We all have our preferences for switches we like but it be so silly to change them based on the value you think you would get out of that.

For me, it's more about purism/elitism. I avoid non-cherry switches on purpose, whether they're good or not.

But again, I'm not the boss of you. Put whatever you want into your mira.

Put the switches that you like on the board, not what others tell you that's "correct". It is your board to enjoy, not for others.

I've been very happy with a few types of Cherry-branded switches, and have been unimpressed with Gaterons (tried a bunch of different colors) despite their high popularity.  However some of the new "3rd party" brand switches have been piquing my interest: specifically Kailh "BOX" (for the sheer interesting new design of them, as opposed to the generic Cherry-type stems that everyone else uses) and Kailh's "Speed" switches, as "Copper" seems like they can be similar to my light-spring Jailhouse Blues, and the linear click "Bronze" switches are a curiosity.  I've tried the new Cherry linear "speed Silver" in a Corsair keyboard at Microcenter and did not like them at all, but I like most of the classic/vintage Cherry switches.  Moral of the story is the same as what others wrote: get what you like to use, not what others might recommend.  Also resale value for customs is all over the place, and if I were to buy someone else's kit, I'd prefer for it to be unassembled rather than have any number of random switches I'd rather not use and spend time replacing anyway.  If you're buying a board for resale, then of course go with what's the popular switch du jour...

Thanks for the update.

Here's some more info about bsun housings.

https://1upkeyboards.com/bsun-brown-switches.html

I got them for cheap at the NYC meetup. I needed a tactile switch, but I only really like panda clears (mx black spring, mx clear stem). The housings for these are really good for tactile switches, so they're basically panda clears+. It's a pretty serious frankenswitch.

They also look pretty striking with the clear stems in, I'll take some nice macro pics when I get a chance.

Unfortunately still waiting to hear any updates regarding shipping/completion status.  zzjayfree is supposed to be doing inviocing for shipping.  As far as announcements for that, I think you will simply get a PayPal invoice notification by e-mail to the e-mail address you indicated when you submitted your order.

Well, Photoelectric beat me to it - still waiting - it's being completed, just taking longer than planned. It is hard to coordinate the production of a keyboard - especially when everything is done so far away.

I will be more excited when they are anodized.
I may do a write up about the pleasure of GB's after this is completed.

Same! Can't wait to get mine, still thinking about which switches and keyset I want to use with it. Compared to others, this GB seems to be going very well so far. Thanks to you and everyone else involved!

Looking to transfer my spot. limited edition #46, silver/silver with blue plate and brass weight. It'll be exactly what I paid which is $449.17 ($409.17 for the board, $40 for the limited edition #46 weight and the gold stabs that come with it).

PM me if interested.

Lishi asked me about estimated shipping date toady. I'm not sure. Due to my attempt of getting the Mira to allow the useage of the winkeyless PCB and just the general difficulties of running a GB it has taken longer than expected. My apologies to all of you and thank you for your patience. Anodizing, anothe QA check, arrival of the rest of the PCB's from Leeku, and shipping are left. I'm going to say by the end of September but that is only my guess without feedback from EVE. Image checking 125 keyboards for flaws and packing them - sounds tedious to me and very easy to miss small imperfections - especially after checking a few boards.

My spot is Black WK and black is great but I'd be interested in a different color.  If anyone wants to trade their spot for mine, let me know. I wouldn't mind Blue, Grey, or Silver, and either WKL or WK is totally fine with me.

I think ninja meant the pad as a future plan, not immediate plan for this group buy.

As far as I know, the engravings on limited edition weights are a bonus to those who supported the original IC for this specific group buy.  A donation of sorts, to keep the promise to the original supporters, though the promise was made by someone else.  Each one is different and requires a separate CAD file.

So, can we PAY for it??? You know, if the GB runner is willing to actually to through the effort of creating the cad files?  Well, that also implies a weight design for the numpads, right?  Anyway, would be pretty cool.

That is the gray. The night sky blue is a much lighter shade of blue

Looks pretty blue to be the Grey.

Considering the Chinese MIRA GB offered that color, it could be another of Ninja's protos. It could also just be one of the Chinese ones for reference.

I think it looks different from this color that wasn’t available for this GB.

It seems a lot more like dark blue rather than dark “aqua” seen in the photos above. If there is anyway, I’d love to switch my all black case for the color used on the one found in my previous post.

EVE checks before anodizing and after anodizing. I've seen him reanodize several in the Chinese GB because he wasn't happy with the result.

I don't think it's been confirmed, but given the difficulties and delays from this one, a second round would surprise me.

I feel like I recall Ninja saying he wasn't planning on running Round 2. He mostly picked this up, because the original IC had fallen apart, and he wanted to bring it to fruition, but I don't think he was planning on Round 2.

That's certainly true. Apart from the fact that if he used the search engine, he'd have probably found ninjadoc's statement, it's not obvious. That's true.

To conclude: you could either wait and see if Ninjadoc is going to offer Alps plate for GB participants only or if you manage to get a spot!

I will offer an alps plate.
Leeku's alps board fits.
winkeyless's A87/B87 PCB does not fit
The NERD does fit

Round 2---I don't know.
I have a keypad designed, a mini in planning, possibly a 65%.
1800 or full size - don't know.

Currently I/we have found a US machine shop that would produce the keyboard at a reasonable price. Anodizing has also been looked at.
a US PCB utilizing TMK has been discussed - unfortunately designing that is beyond my capabilities.

The original OTD boards were designed for particular switches - linear or tactile. This has been discussed on KBDlab and their appears to be a debate on exactly what the design difference is. Obviously it is multi-factorial and I have some ideas on design differences.

As Puddsy mentioned there is a holiday in china. I've been asking for a while and have received no updates on Mira production.

Hopefully that answers most questions.

No way! Mini being the 65%? Or 60%? (Red HHKB Mira pls?) Hyped regardless!

The size of the front has been requested so people can make wtist rests I assume.

The height is 23.72 mm. The length is 356.18 mm.

Please remember that if you had pads to the bottom of keyboard you will need to add that to the height of the board.

I think the real question is will E8 ever ship?

The update from last night in the E8 thread was that all the Vietnamese orders have shipped and that a batch of about 24 boards are "ready to ship". So it's finally starting to get some progress.

ninja, so happy to see you a little more active here recently. seems like you are doing better  :thumb:

it's been a month since the last meaningful update from EVE. keeping in mind there was a week-long holiday during that month, i hope there will be another meaningful update next week - even if that is just to tell us our boards are not done yet.

would be great if you could get some more photos out of him  ;)

Hi all,

We got photos of production anodized colors, though I think they are cell phone snaps, so likely not very accurate.  I've asked for more in different light conditions.  I asked and was told that the Gray does indeed have the green tint in person, which of course you can't see in that photo =/

those are nice

blue looks darker than in the sample pics, but i suspect that can be put down to the crappy camera

hopefully more info on shipping soon

It's also possible that it's slightly darker for this batch because of the somewhat variable nature of the anodizing process (darkness/richness of a shade is subject to how long a part is submerged in the dye and various conditions such as temperature and pH).  But yeah a lot of things are factors in how anodized colors appear in photographs, including quality and amount of light.  I hope more photographs will help settle what we'll be getting.

Paitience my friend. As much as I want my board as well, this GB seems way better managed compared to others that I’ve participated in. These things just take longer and require more effort+coordination than it seems, especially when things are being done in a different continent.

yes, i think any lack of communication is on EVE's end, which I will faithfully assume means they are diligently working on completing the order.
those boards in the recent pictures are probably the same ones in the last update that EVE sent out.

I agree, I have no issues with ninja. I'm confused about the way EVE handles business and communication. Maybe its something cultural I'm missing or maybe he has the high end market cornered.

I assure you they are not the same boards. EVE sometimes is not great at regular updates or communication, which I'm not happy about. But he's not that type of guy providing incorrect information or fake updates. He had some issue with one particular procedure for anodizing and he bought a new machine for that. It took him some time setting up and getting started.

Currently we are just trying to confirm the colors are as expected. We've reached the agreement that blue silver and black are good. Pink and grey is still pending approval, as EVE's photo guy is currently away.

Thanks for your your trust. Ye I'm the one introduced EVE to NinjaDoc, and I act as a middle man in terms of communication. I know the long wait is not wanted and I fell sorry about this. But EVE is trying hard to deliver the best product as possible.

Anodizing has become a longer process than any of us have expected. EVE had to purchase and set up a new sand spraying machine and get it done right.. He just completed and sent out whole bunch of Moon boards for Chinese GB. So hopefully Mira is the next and than Moon boards for GH GB. Again, I'm sorry about the long wait.

That would be the sandblasting part for surface prep.  The texture you see on anodized surfaces is due to the finish prior to anodizing, as the actual anodized layer is only microns thick.

Reason for delay:
multifactorial but the current delay is due to anodizing.
EVE moved his shop and has some new equipment. After finishing blue,grey, and pink were off. Black and silver were fine.
Blue seems to have been corrected so blue, black, and silver are currently being anodized.
Grey and pink - colors may be good but he took pictures with a cell phone in bright light so we are waiting on good pictures. After we get those if the colors are good those colors will start. Boards are made, anodizing is the only hold up.

I apologize about the duration of this group buy. It is my first and I've learned alot. Assuming I do others I will have my "ducks in a row" before I begin.

I first put in to the MIRA almost 2 and a half years ago. Long before you took over and this buy started I was already writing it off as a loss.

The fact that you got the board to where it is now is seriously appreciated by me and I am sure by many others! Excited for the numpad and will definitely be joining that buy too if you decide to run it.
Thanks again and I've already waited this long for the board I have no problem waiting a bit more to get everything perfect :thumb:

There was one prototype made, which we agreed upon based on photographs, and then for some reason reproducing that was difficult.  But also there's the issue of photograph quality, both for the prototype and for this case you see in the picture above: it might well be a bit darker in person as well as a different shade (lighting quality and color temperature of the bulbs or natural light make a big difference in appearance of anodized aluminum).  Personally I like what I see above (and I'm one of the few people who ordered pink).  The intended shade was a muted light pink.

Wait, "metallic pink" is a color?  :))  On my calibrated photography monitor, I don't see any purple in that shade of pink.  Just a cooler-toned light pink. It looks like the pic was taken with some daylight illumination.  Warm indoor lighting will give a more peachy tint.

We passed that deadline 4 months ago though. I think that they won't invoice for shipping until production finishes, so hopefully soon!

right. it was a tongue-in-cheek jab at the fact none of the time frames have been accurate this year (well, except Duck and LZ)

Duck and LZ don't exactly have clean records this year either, but that's a list for another time.

It's not a GB without delays.

Sorry guys :(  Just asked again for an update on beginning shipping.  As soon as we hear back, we'll let you know!  I really hope the long wait will be very worth it in the end (I'm really looking forward to getting my kit as well).

Reason for delay:
multifactorial but the current delay is due to anodizing.
EVE moved his shop and has some new equipment. After finishing blue,grey, and pink were off. Black and silver were fine.
Blue seems to have been corrected so blue, black, and silver are currently being anodized.
Grey and pink - colors may be good but he took pictures with a cell phone in bright light so we are waiting on good pictures. After we get those if the colors are good those colors will start. Boards are made, anodizing is the only hold up.

I apologize about the duration of this group buy. It is my first and I've learned alot. Assuming I do others I will have my "ducks in a row" before I begin.

I kissed my deposit on this board goodbye a long time ago; I still can't believe it's actually being made. You're a damn rockstar, don't let anyone tell you different. Any future group buys you decide to run automatically have my interest.

Silver kits will be shipped first, as far as I know, though I'm not clear on silver kits with plates of other colors like pink.  Trying to find a more definite timeline for shipping start, but it sounds like it will start soon, when the custom boxes arrive to EVE.  That could definitely be early December and on, since all the kits likely won't be shipped in one day. 

I don't know if it will be helpful, Puddsy, but if it looks like shipping will be done over the Christmas break period via some fast shipping option, I can see about asking for your kit to be shipped to me, if you can meet up in Boston to pick it up.

I'll investigate that option a bit, not sure how I'm getting back at the end of the break, but that's probably the best option for now. I'll be in touch.

I wish I knew. I think it should be.
Silver ones are made, just waiting on the custom boxes. The others are being anodized now.

Sweet, I'd be pretty happy if 2 out of the 4 group buys I dove into this year arrived before the end of 2017. Worst case, I've got more time to practice my soldering skills  :))
