Title: [GB] GMK Modern Dolch
Post by: janglad on Sat, 25 August 2018, 05:35:28
Hey!

I would like to introduce you to GMK Modern Dolch!

(https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5a02c663268b961642ad2bbf/5b659c078a922d4284f3a7e9/5b659c7f8a922d4284f3b5a8/1533386015160/M65Front.jpg?format=2500w)

Vendors

I'm super happy to say that just like with 9009 I have worked with some amazing vendors from all over the world, making sure you guys won't have to pay those nasty Ä20 administration fees on import or crazy high shipping rates. Here are all the vendors who will be selling this set :)


Inspiration

Many of you have probably owned one or more variants of the timeless Dolch colour-way. I always loved the contrasted yet simple look between the 2 greys, however I always felt like something was a bit off: the colours just seemed a bit too warm and ďmuddyĒ to me. I really wanted to give a more muted and modern look to this timeless colourway, which is where Modern Dolch comes in. It keeps the simplistic look and the beautiful contrast between the 2 greys, but cooling the colours down and adding some fresh accents. The result is a very versatile set, which goes well with simple silver/black boards, vibrant teal boards and anything in between.

Here is a comparison between Modern Dolch and OG Dolch:

Design

Because of GMK's limited offering of stock colours, this set will be offering all custom colours. We're in the process of ordering plastic Pantone samples for this, instead of going the standard way of using a paper book. This way we can make sure the colour matching is perfect! We will be offering 3 items in this group buy. First is the base kit, the bread and butter of any GMK set. It will support a plethora of layouts combined with some fresh accents mentioned earlier! We're also excited to offer an icon mod kit, for those who want to complete the simplistic look of this set even more (finally no more R3 all text ďControlĒ key in the midst of icons :thumb:). For those wanting to add a splash of extra colour to your board, or those with split spacebar the spacebar kit is also available! As a cherry on top we're also offering some stunning RAMA caps, inspired by the logo of the original Dolch PAC board. These will be made out of CNCd aluminium with an enamel fill and are sure to bring your board to the next level! These have to be the coolest caps RAMA has ever made, and that's saying something :D

Finally, this made to GB! Congratulations!
I'm definitely in, although not immediately (need to fill my wallet  :cool: )
Also, I'd assume that the payment collection is in September (22/09) instead of August (22/08) as written in the main thread.
Correct me if I am wrong :D

Will the Rama caps be properly colour matched to fit the accent colours? 
Also I would suggest to change the render of the base set with the coloured spacebar to something actually included in the base set ;) (noted I only looked at my keyboard.eu)
Glwgb will hop in towards the end when the paycheque comes in^^

Thanks a lot for adding all the colors on the ISO enter. While I really love GMK Camping, itĎs a bit of a bummer that I cant go for an all green ISO look (since it only contains the maroon ISO enter).

Yes, RAMA will match these as well as physically possible :D Considering his portfolio, I'm very confident that they will turn out amazingly!!

Very nice! The main reason I didn't ever bother with dolch was because of the brownish alphas. This set looks great though, and the alphas look pretty close to GMK Oblivion, which is a plus for me as well since I own the white alpha version of that. :)

Hehe yeah the brown alpha's of Dolch is exactly why I made this set! Also FYI Oblivion colours are a bit darker and warmer than Dolch :)

Hehe nope not yet. Total orders are lagging behind 9009 on the same day a bit, but that's because the Korean proxy brought in a crazy amount of sales the first day and sadly because of personal reasons Cocobrais couldn't proxy the set this time around. US sales are actually ahead of 9009 when that GB was live for the same amount of time, I'm not getting my hopes up yet but it seems like hitting 500 MOQ might be possible!!!  :D

As a GMK Dolch enthusiast, really good job on color selections and overall simplicity/beauty

I won't be joining as the legend selections heavily mismatch my obsessions around keycaps, but still, nice job, it was nice to see an elegant take

I don't have updated numbers, but with the one I have: no. We're well on the way tho, like I mentioned before Dixie has sold more Modern Dolch sets than he did 9009 when the GB was open for the same amount of days. Considering that GB hit 740 ish base kits, I'm very very confident this set will get made :)

I'm a Mac user myself, but sadly I had to make that one compromise to keep the price low. Having the CMD key would not only add extra keys to the kit, GMK would also need to make a new mould for it.

Thats actually a very useful piece of info - that GM does not have a mould for it. I had asked the same question on GMK Carbon thread, but got told no.
Does requiring anew mold significantly increase price ?

I know someone who has had a custom CA66 badge made, I think he got it made separately/in another factory than the CA66 tho. But yeah s CA66 badge with the same enamel infill as the RAMA caps would be super cool :D

Thousands for a legend mould ? Novelty kits would kill GBs then. I'm not sure, but I have no idea either. Just seems a unreasonable given the novelty caps that come out in each GB, and Novelty kits dont usually sell as much as the base either.

I just sawGMK Good Kid https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=96279.0 (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=96279.0) , and noticed that its icon mod kit does have a command key, although its a sub legend. would this be a pad printed thing?

Probably why novelty kits start off pretty expensive for the number of keys, but get much cheaper as quantities go up.

Novelties are typically only ever used for the specific keycap sets they were created for and so they can use cheaper mould materials that don't typically withstand as many uses.

Ah, gotcha. I saw people already talking about 500 MOQ so I was wondering if the total already had hit 250.

On a side note, is the December shipping on this an accurate estimate? Seems super quick.

Off centre to support MX boards with 6u spacebar layout. I included a centred in 9009 because there seemed to be some promising developments in 3d printed MX stabs for Topre, but that never ended up working out. AFAIK all MX boards that use 6u are offset.

I'm not sure if we can hit 500 MOQ again like we did with 9009. There is even more competition out there right now. We're well on the way to 250 MOQ tho, so the set will definitely be made :)

Also yeah shipping date will probably be January 2019. GMK has been early on a couple sets now tho.

Yup I know, I explained this in some previous comments. Those renders were made before we decided to remove the 1.5u super caps from the base kit. I'm a Mac user myself, so would have loved to keep em. However, custom colours already increased price and considering what a small % of people will use the caps we had to balance it out.

Just wondering what are the spacebar sizes in the Base Kit and Spacebar Kit? I tried looking at the IC thread and this thread and proxies but can't find info on them.

Post by: coffeeshopcoder on Tue, 04 September 2018, 21:18:53
Someone correct me if I'm wrong -

Grey 6.25u & 7u  --------> base kit
Grey 6u               --------> Spacebar kit
Red 6.25u & 7u   --------> Spacebar kit
Cyan 6.25u & 7u --------> Spacebar kit

The spacebar kit is sort of a must with this drop I feel, because the accents elevate this whole aesthetic to the next level

There is still a glimmer of hope that GMK Carbon will have R4 bottom keycaps.

Well yes, but this set does include 4 1.5u R4 keys (2 x Alt and 2x CTRL) :) You def can fit this on all of those boards. AFAIK those 1.5u OS keys are only used by Mac users.

Yup, i emailed them. I actually put in two orders and none of them are registered in my account under 'my orders'. Thanks for the headsup :) Some stores have a manual process for confirming orders, that's why I was a bit on standby, but appreciate your feedback on how things normally are there. Kind of a newb here and have mainly been passive for the last year in terms of purchases (until now). Still waiting for that Rama TKL, where this set will fit perfectly!

The only thing I'm lacking is Nordic ISO, too scared of going full ANSI yet.

GANGLAD: Can you add just 1 key to the set: Itís R1 1U backspace arrow. Every GMK set i checked in the last few years has this key. Most of my boards, TKL included, have this key. Why would you leave an important key like this out of your set?

I got in on your groupby and i donít mind paying another 10-15$ just to have this key.

I am kind of surprised no one mentioned the omission of this key yet.

Can't you use R1 delete?

Using this logic then i can use any Row 1 key for backspace. There is a reason a specific key is there for the purpose, not a substitute.

And no, i canít use R1 Del, it would sit directly to the left and up next to R2 Del on a TKL.

I get maybe not adding this key to the main set...but to leave the key out of Icon Modifiers set altogether, if the Icon Modifiers set is there, thatís just an incomplete design. Very upset by this.

There is a Ä5 price drop at 500 MOQ, which will be refunded to you after the GB. There are no price drops for other kits :)

Very few people use a 1u backspace, it has been in a few previous sets but I have never seen the key on someone's board hence why I didn't include it.

For anyone in the U.S. that missed out or forgot to buy a kit you should hop on over there!

No the group buy is over. The proxies usually have extras though, so if you really want one, then keep an eye on this thread to see if the proxies do a sale of the extras - usually happens after the GB participants get their sets and any issues are resolved. You could always try r/mechmarket once the kits start going out as well.

Automatically entered when buying the keyset.

"Keyforge Shishi Raffle

Just to clear up any confusion, everyone who purchased a base set of GMK Modern Dolch was automatically entered to win a Keyforge Shishi. We did not send a link to a form and you did not have to do anything else to be entered into the raffle. So if you have not received an email with an invoice, you did not win. If you receive an invoice, and do not want the cap, please contact us and we will re-raffle that cap. "

Hey all

Sorry for not posting here for so long, I wanted to hold off on an update until I got a concrete updated shipping date from GMK to avoid confusion. However, it's really been long now. Current status of the set is that we still haven't received the colour samples from GMK because of delays with GMK's plastic supplier. At this point it seems very likely that even if the first round of samples are on point that we won't be hitting the January shipping date. I don't have a confirmed updated shipping date yet, but have asked GMK for one. Will post it here as soon as I have more info.

Alright so seems like issues are finally starting to be flattened out, the samples have been shipped out! They did not include the original Pantone plastic chips I sent em since they said the plastic company kept them, but after explaining how important it is to have something physical to compare colours to (instead of just an idea or renders on a monitor) GMK said they will retrieve the Pantone chips and ship those out separately. Because of the delays with the plastic supplier, production has been set back about a month (so late January to early February).

I will of course post pictures of the samples as soon as I get them!

It doesn't look like there's much contrast between the grays.

Post by: PM_Your_Switches on Mon, 24 December 2018, 04:53:32
Oh my, I love these samples.

Grays look wonderful, but the contrast does seem a little low. The original rendering had the darker gray as a little darker than what was produced. That being said, only two keys are shown so it might appear more contrast-y when more keys are next to each other in a full layout.

The cyan does look like it could use a little more cyan. It's kinda a light seafoam green right now.

I agree the red could pop a little more.

Post by: futurecrime on Mon, 24 December 2018, 06:15:27
I broadly agree with the feedback so far. The darker grey could possibly be a touch darker, if we're comparing to renders. And the accents both need to be a little more saturated, with a little more blue in the cyan. I actually like all the colours you've got there, but yeah, it needs tweaking to match the renders.

Tried to colour correct a bit better since the previous image was a bit overexposed.

As for too low contrast, I'm not really sure about that. In some renders there def was a bit more contrast than in others but just like taking a picture IRL, colours in renders are very depended on the lighting and editing used. Considering the GMK samples match the chosen Pantones colours really well, and I used the official Pantone colour codes for the renders I think they're pretty good as they are.

However, I will look into sending some samples to some people to get some second opinions on this.

I actually really like the greys as they are, as well as the red which is perfect to me like this. I agree with the cyan could have a bit more blue in it, but it's pretty good like this already.

That newly corrected image looks way better when it comes to the contrast. I use photoshop for my job and it's a pain in the ass to make things match real life. If it matches the pantone then I trust it. Thank you for your diligence!

First, thank you for this. It's really nice to see, rather than GB participants blindly trusting a vision or being dismissed as color experts.

The contrast in grays did look a little low in the first picture, but the color corrected picture looks much better. I agree with you and others here regarding the accents. Just some slight tweaking and I think they'll hit the target.

Thanks for your hard work - really excited for this!

Here is how I am comparing my expectation from the set:

This is my attitude as well! Custom colors can be tricky and I think as somebody who joined the group by it is up to me to understand that getting the colors right is more important than hitting some deadline I have in mind for receiving the set.

I'm all for getting it right even if it takes longer. But I am also appreciative of the GB runner providing updates periodically, especially when delay is introduced. Doesn't need to be every day - just once every other week sounds about right. Everyone is eager to get their hands on this set with the right colors, and I'm sure everyone can agree on this!

Looking forward to the new samples, and large scale production!

Small update:  I shipped the Pantones back to GMK. We also picked 2 more alternative RAL colours for the red (since the original Pantone can't be matched). However, I still haven't heard anything back from GMK....... I really wish everything would move quicker since I'm quite eager to get my set too, but yeah we'll have to wait for the second round of samples. I really really hope those turn out perfect since doing another round would most likely delay the set by another 3 weeks or more.

Got a reply from GMK just now. Some good news here! They already shipped out the new red and cyan samples, I will update as soon as I get these.

Since the grays are already on point and make up 90% of the set, they proposed already producing that part of it and doing the accent keys later. I think this is a great idea since it would minimise delays.

Hey!

Very exciting update! I just got the new samples in from GMK!

Below are some pictures comparing them to the old samples, the Pantones and the OG Dolch colours. Please keep in mind that the red Pantone is a metallic chip, which makes it change colour an insane amount based on lighting (just like a car). This also makes matching very very hard.

Picture comparing them with only natural light coming in from a window to the right:

(https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7815/46301668704_e842088729_o.jpg)

with room lighting turned on (so less natural but more even lighting), also has OG Dolch colours to compare

and finally, comparing the OG Dolch and Modern Dolch colours. Have a look at the original comparison render below, I would say they turned out quite well!

As for the red, as I explained above it's very hard to both capture and colour match. Even though I rendered the set with the official Pantone colour code for this image, I wasn't aware the the chip was a metallic one. Looking at the sample here and comparing it to the renders on a monitor calibrated just now, I would say GMK did a killer job though!

What do you guys think?   :)

Hey!

Very exciting update! I just got the new samples in from GMK!

Below are some pictures comparing them to the old samples, the Pantones and the OG Dolch colours. Please keep in mind that the red Pantone is a metallic chip, which makes it change colour an insane amount based on lighting (just like a car). This also makes matching very very hard.

Picture comparing them with only natural light coming in from a window to the right:

with room lighting turned on (so less natural but more even lighting), also has OG Dolch colours to compare

Sometimes the GB runner will buy a few extra sets and sell them on their website after the GB is over. Not sure if there are any details on extras for this GB, though.

GMK said they would ship the set out on the 15th to vendors, so 11 more days for that to happen. Shipping and sorting will take a couple of days tho, so it might be more near the end of the month when you receive the set :)

Hey!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I heard from GMK today. Sadly they didn't get some of the raw plastic needed for the custom colours yet from their factory, meaning they couldn't ship out the sets to vendors today as was planned. It will be delayed until the 29th, kinda unfortunate since I was really looking forward to receiving my set next week... This kind of stuff happens tho and in the grad scheme of things 2 weeks isn't that much.

Either way, I'll keep everyone updated!

There will be extra GMK kits for sure, across all vendors. RAMA caps will be a bit tougher to get tho, IIRC both EU and US vendors didn't get any extras for them. Don't recall if Dailyclack or Zfrontier did, but they definitely will be tougher to get your hands on.

Much hype! Thanks for the update!

Heard some Chinese users already received it? Not entirely sure just heard something in the chinese groups

Hope Dixie will ship soon

I haven't heard anything from this from ZF and GMK told me they would ship out to vendors on the 29th so it would surprise me, but maybe they already shipped early to ZF? I doubt it but would be really cool obviously.

There's not a time/date across all vendors, I'm going to assume they'll put the extras up once all GB orders are shipped. I'm pretty sure they'll announce when the extras will go live beforehand tho, since they tend to sell out very quickly.

No. Because they haven't arrived yet, and I don't know when they will because customs loves to take their time. But I will not even start on them until Oblique is done. Oblique GB was before Modern Dolch, so that's just the way it goes.

At 2 PM today, I will be dropping off the last batch. There are a few orders that had address problems that I have emailed about, so if you haven't gotten a shipping confirmation, check your email. Otherwise, if anyone has any problems with your order, let me know on the support chat on my site, and I will get it taken care of.

Here is a fun photo of the remaining orders I packed last night.
