TLDR;

May 15, 2017 - GB Started. Will release at 6PM EST. Limit of 1 set per person.
May 16, 2017 - Responded to all outstanding emails. Please email me for all order changes and include required information!
May 17, 2017 - Responded to all outstanding changes.
May 23, 2017 - All outstanding changes responded to. Invoices have been sent.
June 2, 2017 - Today is the last day to send me your changes. Make sure you email me your changes. Anything sent tomorrow will not be accepted. Also, if anyone is considering of selling their spot, there is a fee associated with it.
June 3, 2017 - No more changes are allowed.
July 12, 2017 - Batch 1 should ship in a month.
August 9, 2017 - The estimated shipping for R1 will be around the end of this month and the next batch will happen shortly after that.
August 30, 2017 - I have confirmed all the addresses for batch 1 with Duck, it's happening soon!
September 19, 2017 - The first 50 will ship out in 2 weeks. I believe the issue related to how the boards were packaged - we want to make sure it makes it to you undamaged.
October 19, 2017 - The first 20 has been shipped and tracking numbers will be posted today. Duck has used a different packing method and wants to ensure that the first 20 makes it safe. The remaining 30 from the first batch will be shipped once I receive my board and confirm that the packing material they used is adequate.
October 24, 2017 - First 20 were packaged well. Remaining 30 shipping today.
October 30, 2017 - Batch 2 will be shipping in two weeks. No more address changes.
November 17, 2017 - Everything has been shipped!

Well, description has them seperate

Aluminium top housing (Aluminum 6061) in black or silver
Bottom housing (11 degree angle)

and the pictures lead to either a full black one and a hybrid one

That's interesting... I didn't notice that. His last 3 buys have been a choice for both top/bottom - silver/black.  I prefer a black bottom with silver top anyway.

Deadline for order is May 28, 2017 or until 100 sets.
Order ONLY if you can pay the invoice by the deadline (May 28, 2016)

Most likely the GB will end long before May 28 (it'll ends in a couple of minutes  :-X), if so, are we suppose to pay the invoice whenever the time the GB has ended or is it still on May 28, 2017?

Corrected the deadlines. I'll likely start invoicing over the weekend or when the orders reaches a certain point.

Similar to the Viper/Eagle V2 GB, you have the choice of black and silver for both the top and bottom and they can be interchanged.

Because I really don't like the 11 degree slope. :D (The case looks gorgeous though!) I only have a NovaTouch which I use with the feet down. I tried raising the feet but my accuracy goes to **** and after time my wrists start straining/hurting so the steep case is a no-go. I have faith in the acrylic case files that Duck has uploaded for the Lightsaver (V1?) and I am planning to use them to build myself a case.

If I don't get in the the GB, would anyone be open to adding an extra PCB/plate onto their order for me?

I have a similar request as Mandrew, I only want a PCB/plate combo. Can anyone kindly order them as an extra to their order? :) Or is this question better asked after all the people that made the list are known?

Please feel free to reply or PM, if interested.

Thanks.

Just messaged Duck and will let you know.

Sorry, it can't be sold separately. You'll need to piggy back off someone else's order for that to happen.
Thanks for the reply. Guess I'll wait for the drop and then ask again. I hope people will be willing to help me and the others who want only the PCB/plate combo.

What is the likely hood that the v3 pcb would fit in a v1 case? Trying to decide if I wanna order an extra pcb to expand my layout options.

I'm not sure, but I'll ask.

Boards will be limited to 1 per person this time around. If there are extra slots by the end of the week, I will allow others to buy a second.

Awesome! Thanks!

It won't fit as this PCB has the LED indicators.

The indicators are what I always wanted in my lightsaver. I havn't logged in for months and it turns out Payday was the best day to log in to get in this GB. I don't want to live with 5 lighsavers at home so I better sell a v2 so I dont become a lightsaver hoarder.

Just a reminder that the GB opens at 6PM EST TODAY!

This may be a silly question, but it's daylight savings time right now... Is it indeed 6PM EST and not 6PM EDT?

I considering joining the drop, but ive never built a keyboard before, so i wonder about this:

$80 USD for an additional plate/PCB combo
-Why would you buy extras for this keyboard?

Is switches (and caps) the only thing in addition i need to buy to have a complete KB?

Another question, seems to be alot of hype about the board, but do you think this is something that will sell out very fast? Its very cool, but its still a 400 usd piece.

The plate and PCB extra is for if you want to be able to switch layouts/switches or if you want a backup just in case.

Switches, caps, cable, stabilizers and indicator LEDs.

This will sell out really quick.

Now that I've made a decision (alu) can anyone explain to me the difference in plate materials?

Previous versions of LightSavers are tray mount, where the PCB is screwed into the base so they were essentially a PCB mounted keyboard with the plate aligning everything. The difference in materials is mostly be for looks and sound. You could even go plateless with PCB mount switches.

The LSV3 is top mount.

The plate is be mounted to the case, leaving the PCB suspended by the switches. This is where materials matter. Acrylic that is a uniform 1.5mm thickness is unsuitable, polycarb and aluminum are more forgiving, while steel is going to be stiffer and have more ping. Most people agree that steel would be best for linear switches but may be too harsh for switches with sharper tactility like MX clears, MOD and Zealios. Its preference.

EDIT: Sorry for the initial inaccuracy

Not really sure what you're trying to say here when you say the PCB is screwed into the base vs the plate mounted to the case. Common mounting references are tray mount (Pok3r style), top mount (like many customs), and bottom mount (TX87). The Lightsaver looks to be top mount, like many boards produced in Korea and by duck.

Just trying to clarify some terminology.

Yeah IDK, Edited.

I got in on this GB but am now realizing I don't now the full details of this iteration. There isn't an exploded view of the construction like in the Viper/Eagle thread, just assumed it was the same idea as the previous versions. If its not tray mounted, I wonder how the plastic plate will work. Maybe milled polycarb, hopefully Elton can clarify for us?

If you look at the pictures elton posted from duck's website, you can see where the plate would mount, specifically the 8 slots for the plate to screw into the top of the case. Plastic will work the same way, its either poly carb or acrylic, but I've seen plates made from both.

SS vs Aluminum plate? Which one is better guys
Title: Re: [GB] Lightsaver V3 Kustom Keyboard
Post by: yookwh on Tue, 16 May 2017, 11:31:50
From what I've read, SS > linear, and aluminum > non-linear. I've been going with Zealios for my past couple of builds, but will probably go with both plates just in case.

Search for previous Lightsaver builds on google, that's what I did last night before deciding on all black. Probably helps if you've got some keycaps in mind to pair with it.

I'm pretty sure there were more photos added to the Duck links provided earlier in the thread, however they are of the black variant.

Normally I'm not really into lighted boards but I think Laser GMK is perfectly suited for the black Lightsaver v3, so that what I made my decision around.

The link has a picture of someone with a $120 set of calipers that is using them completely wrong. To measure gaps, they should be using the other end. Dumbest thing I have seen all day→

Those calipers are not too big and it's quite obvious they can measure the gap perfectly if the other end was used. I would expect that anyone with a $100+ set of Mitutoyo calipers would be able​ to utilize them correctly.

This shows the proper way to use those calipers to measure an inside diameter. The tip of one side of the caliper used won't even fit into the switch hole much less both.

To properly physically measure hole diameters this small you would need a calibrated set of pins or similar.

Actually the way the tips are of the upper jaws, it can read very small increments. Though taking a picture might have been akward. To measure it accurately the calipers would have had to come in perpendicular to the hole. This seems like a much bigger deal than it needs to be lol. I probably would have measured with the upper jaws and displayed the reading like he did for the pic.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but Lightsaver V2 GB was 3 years ago  :-X  I only remembered this because I got into mechs a little over 3 years ago and the GB happened shortly there after.

I feel your pain PotatoTM, I was exactly in your shoes 3 years ago. The good thing is that 96 keyboards have become more popular and the Kira (also a 96 key layout) should be coming sometime soonTM.

So all who wondered about this being the last iteration of a Duck Lightsaver:  It's not.

I just spoke to Duck and he said that what he meant by "Last Design" is exactly what @Invaderevan speculated.  He meant that was the last iteration of THIS version and it was the final design of the bottom piece.  I also asked him if there was going to be a V4 - he said "if they want a V4, I will."  So straight from the horses mouth...

Good news to all who didn't get in!

Pretty much. It gives me assurance in case the PCB I use gets ****ed up. I paid a good amount for an Octagon V2 PCB long after the GB, and I'm not making the same mistake again. So it's either there just in case, or maybe I can alternate between linears and Zealios... Something like that

Not yet decided, maybe Zealios, maybe retooled blacks, maybe Input Club's new Halo Clears? As for keycaps, hopefully I can find a 40s or Tsafox kit for Godspeed to complete my set to fit the board. But eventually SA Oblivion will be on it. I got a black case btw.

I'm not sure if I'm going to modify the poly plate I ordered or have one fabricated. I do plan making a custom SS plate that allows for switch top opening so I might just make two variants, a full and a half.

As far as switches, vintage blacks, ergo clears, or silent blacks.

Interesting. So as I understand it, the general consensus is stiffer plate (brass/SS) for linear, softer plate (alu/PC) for tactile. And I guess PCB mount provides some cushion so I would presume tactile would be best suited? Or maybe it doesn't matter so much... I might try it with some Zealios... I'm so new to all this but am interested in trying out all sorts of options. When you say you might get a poly plate fabricated, how do you go about that? Like, I presume you need a CAD file or something to give to a manufacturer? Do you make that yourself? Sorry for the grilling...

On one PCB I'll probably do zealios 65g or 67g switches and use my Carbon set on it. Haven't decided what to do for the other pcb, but tempted to try out the zealios linear switches

I think I plan on holtites for both PCBs, so I can change layouts and change plates if I decide I don't like one or the other. Although I guess I could just do holtites on one PCB and swap the plates on the same PCB...

Probably start w/ silent blacks on SS, and 78g zeals on polycarb (Hopefully Elton got my mail to change the 2nd plate to plastic).

Keycaps, no idea... have so many on order I've lost track :D

I have a bunch of vintage cherry blacks I desoldered from a board I pulled out of e-waste, think I'm going to holtite the PCB and give them a go. I was never a fan of linear switches until I tried silent reds, so I think my problem was more with the actuation force than the linear feel. See how I go with the heavier blacks.

Stick with the stock vintage housings IMO and go with thin switch lube.

That won't work you'll really want thin lube.

I'll be sticking to my tried & true MX Browns, last time I used MX Black in any variant was on my Deck 82 back in 2005... all I remember is they wore my hands out.

to each his own. I love my 'cappuchino' setup which are Gateron Browns w/ 67g springs. Very solid a smooth, essentially what a Zealio is.

Judging by the Viper gb, acryllic diffuser inserts for the two side led areas won't be included right? How would one go about getting something like that? Also, it seems like there's space in the bottom housing for a detachable weight. Does that generally get made by others in the community and not by Duck? I'm new to the custom/high-end side of mechanical keyboards so I apologize if I sound oblivious.

Usually there are 3 acrylic diffusers included.

One for left, one for right, and one for front. The viper GB was special because people were using screw in type stabilizer instead of a traditional clip on style. The screw stuck out more from the PCB and made contact with the acrylic diffuser, thus people made new ones to accommodate the screw.

Duck made new designs of the diffuser to accommodate the screw now.

Also the weight is made by community members, specifically Merlin is well known for providing weights for Duck.

if you go off the viper/eagle buy... that was started at the end of November, the first boards were shipped March 13th. Mind you there was some delays but stlll thats a reasonable expectation that we should see first shipment around middle to end of Sept.

Correction, these are the duck feet: http://duck0113.tistory.com/125. They were intended to be used with a flat acrylic bottom.

I believe Wicky is asking about the acrylic windows which haven't been offered in quite some time.

Not necessarily. I followed the IC for awhile. The GB link just showed up one random night, and we were then told later that the link would be up at 6pm that same day. I was lucky enough to have followed this, but I'm sure there were plenty of people who missed out because of the sudden appearance of the GB, despite following the IC thread

There was a limit of 100 boards. Elton cut off taking orders at 130 people. So if any of the first 100 drop off the next person on the list of 101-130 gets a chance.

There is no way to get on the waiting list at this point. It would be pointless anyway since it's unlikely more than a couple of people are going to drop off.

I want to say that there might be a chance of people on the waiting list actually getting orders too. For Octagon V2, there was another run of 30, and I think people on the waitlist had first chance to grab the board.

There is a waiting list of 30 people before you. You can try r/MM if you feel lucky later.


Be Prepared to pay a though

You mean the 30 people at the google sheet numbered after 100?
That was a waiting list?  :))
Sigh....Still.... whoever wants to get your money back for any reason.... please let me know.... I'd be really happy to

Pretty sure Elton doesn't transfer orders that way. It would be a spit in the face to people on the waiting list who have higher priority. We haven't even gotten our invoices yet; there's no money to get back since we haven't paid.

Is there an another waiting list that I don't know about?.. I know invoice hasn't been sent yet but was meaning when someone want to be dropped off..


There was a limit of 100 boards. Elton cut off taking orders at 130 people. So if any of the first 100 drop off the next person on the list of 101-130 gets a chance.

There is no way to get on the waiting list at this point. It would be pointless anyway since it's unlikely more than a couple of people are going to drop off.

Edit:  Had he kept the order form open, we'd probably have a waiting list that was 150 deep by now....

Okay.. so the people who got 100~130 are on waiting list..
Well...hmm... just wanna do my best atm. (;_ ;

So I got what all of you guys are talking about...so if someone drops out, the place goes to the one in the waiting list one by one.
Jesus sorry for taking so long to understand. I'm just being obsessive right now.
Damn what should I do. The price will rise like doubled like ViperV2 once the GB is done right.

you could always get a cheaper 96 key alternative

Double is probably about right, but it may take awhile before someone wants to sell theirs.

At least I'd like to hope so. I bought mine tip use a my daily and I'm hoping the others that got in did so because they want the board and not just to flip it for a quick profit.

Well, sometimes the price jacks up a lot, but this might have some reasons:

- Us Europeans have to pay ~20% import tax on the whole price ( (Board + shipping + whatever fees) x 1.2 = final price ) so for me it's from 444.98 up to 529.52 just to get it
- Most boards are built with switches (some $60 or so, sometimes way more) and stabilizers and lubed and time for soldering, sometimes you find unbuilt sets

So yes, there is definitely a markup but most of it has its reasons

It will all be shipped as gift under a certain amount.

Also, I made a error on the shipping costs. I put the costs at up to 3 kg where it should be up to 3.5 kg.  The invoices I sent up to LS12 will remain the same, but the rest I am changing since I haven't invoiced them yet. Sorry about that.

I want to say that there might be a chance of people on the waiting list actually getting orders too. For Octagon V2, there was another run of 30, and I think people on the waitlist had first chance to grab the board.

This! I mean, just maybe wait after the payment deadline has ended and then go down from #101 to #135 - there will definitely be some among it who are more than willing to pay, until now there are 8 unpaid orders in the top 100

I can see however, if he's going down the line, email/pm, then have to give person enough reasonable time to response/or not, it can become tedious and time consuming if got into an unlucky streak no responders. But I do agree, if a policy was previous stated, why not stick to it.

He could announce that he starts at 3p EST on wednesday for example and leaves a time window of 10 minutes or so and then gradually goes down the list? Just a thought... Enough time to get prepared

I could be wrong, but I think that only applies to unpaid invoices. That person most likely already paid for his spot. If that person put it on him to replace his spot, it would only seem fair to offer it to the list though.

Hey everyone, I'm having a bit of a second thought on my color choice on case (Both black). Since it's passed the invoice deadline, was wondering if anyone wanted to swap for their silver/silver for black/black?

Elton,
I know it's really early on, but any ideas on production schedule?

From previous Elton/Duck GB, first 50 gets made and shipped in 3-3.5 months. Second 50 after shortly after.

You could use the Viper/Eagle GB as a guide.

That's only if the person cancels order before an invoice is paid. After invoice is paid to Elton, the seller and buyer agrees to contact Elton and Elton refunds, and re invoices the buyer.

The reason is very simple. The next person in line may not pay invoice for days, thus, it makes sense to have a dedicated buyer contact Elton.

For all those using screw-in stabs:  I just ordered these (http://www.ebay.com/itm/162358602421) on eBay - just figured they're worth a mention.  The screws used in Zeal's stabs are M2x4mm just FYI.  These nylon washers are perfect to prevent shorts on the PCB and will look tidy/professional. Cheers!

What size? Which one of all these options? Excuse my ignorance.

I agree. The Blackbird v1 functionally added arrow keys and a numpad to a 60% board without taking away the function key next to the short right shift. For me, that is perfection. Since it's a Duck board I don't really see them changing the layout back but we can hope.

Here's a small update. The first 50 will ship out in 2 weeks. I believe the issue related to how the boards were packaged - we want to make sure it makes it to you undamaged.

In terms of Jetfire, the GB will start after all LSV3 are shipped. I will be creating an IC thread shortly with more details.

Ha! I'm probably gonna be going with the grey alpha GMK Oblivion on my black case.  :)  With silent blacks. Undecided on plate, I have steel and alu on order... not sure what'll suit the silent switches better. Steel may be better for linear but the alu may help absorb more sound to compliment the silent switches.

I am waiting on a silver top and black bottom. Also waiting on alu and steel plate.

Alu plate: lubed 62g Zealios (my favourite tactile switch) + clipped and lubed OG Cherry stabs. GMK Muted with ISO on that one.

Steel plate: MX Silent Blacks + clipped and lubed OG Cherry stabs. Not decided on keyset yet, but definitely some classic colours from GMK (i.e. 9009 or Dolch).

The steel plate will be my first proper linear switch build. I have no experience of silent blacks, should those be lubed also?

I intended to do exactly that but cancelled my skog order when I got in on the lightsaver GB. Still not sure if I made the right choice, the grey skog looks perfect for the grey Oblivion set... anyway, we'll see and I'll defo take some pics for ya.

also 50

the community is smaller

GH used to get 50 since that's what duck sticks to as an order max (something about production times), but now the community has grown as such so that duck can safely sell 100 units.

China got 30 LSV3, for reference. This partly because they can also get in to the GH GB, and generally also get a few units from Korea through proxies.

Hi Elton,

Wondering if you (or anyone else!) can tell me whether the LSV3 PCB is designed with hotlite support (for both switches and LEDs)?

I've a couple of switch types that I want to test, and don't want to run the risk of soldering the board twice.


That aside, I'm also looking forward to an update on production/packaging/shipping progress (my set is part of the second batch). No pressure, yet eager to know when I might be likely to receive this wonderful board!

Oh, and does anyone know if/when the trigger on the jetfire is likely to be pulled?

Cheers!

Hi all, from what I have been told, the first 20 has been shipped and tracking numbers will be posted today. Duck has used a different packing method and wants to ensure that the first 20 makes it safe. The remaining 30 from the first batch will be shipped once I receive my board and confirm that the packing material they used is adequate. Thanks for your patience everyone.

Hi Elton,

Wondering if you (or anyone else!) can tell me whether the LSV3 PCB is designed with hotlite support (for both switches and LEDs)?

I've a couple of switch types that I want to test, and don't want to run the risk of soldering the board twice.


That aside, I'm also looking forward to an update on production/packaging/shipping progress (my set is part of the second batch). No pressure, yet eager to know when I might be likely to receive this wonderful board!

Oh, and does anyone know if/when the trigger on the jetfire is likely to be pulled?

Cheers!

edit: remove the second the

It should be holtite compatible, all of duck's boards and most korean boards are.

There was a Google doc going around of how some of the Duck boards aren't. From what I've seen, it's a case-by-case basis.

The fact that someone decided there was sufficient information to add the Octagon v2 to the chart as incompatible is beyond me (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=89546.msg2424609#msg2424609).

Holtites seem to work (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=86087.msg2402988#msg2402988) on both rounds of Viper/Eagle PCBs, the BlackBird, and even the Octagon v2 (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=78549.msg2332517#msg2332517). 

It should work on the LSV3 provided Duck doesn't suddenly change the PCB footprints.

20 orders are shipped and tracking is up for them. The rest will be shipped shortly after.  All lightsavers are produced and ready. It won't take much longer for the 2nd batch to ship out.

Also, once the first 20 that received theirs, can you please open the box carefully and check whether or not the air cushions that they used for the new packaging are still in tact?

Thanks.

If you count the orders that have shipped, there are 20 (plus Elton's).  So those would be the first 20 to be shipped.

I hope you're not serious. There's a difference between "the first 20 being shipped" and "20 shipments sent out in random order, plus Elton's." Here's the quote: " the first 20 has been shipped and tracking numbers will be posted today." I would've thought that #1-20 would be shipped.

I was told from Duck that the first 20 would have been shipped, but I have now found out that it's not in the chorological order. I understand your frustration, but please be patient. The first 20 are being shipped in a new kind of packing. Once I confirm that everything is fine along with others, the remaining 30 from the first batch will be released. They're all ready to go, but I need to confirm that the new packing is adequate.

No worries. I was expecting to be one of the first 20 and was disappointed that I wasn't for about a second, and then I was relieved not to be a guinea pig on the new packaging. Hopefully everyone's arrives in perfect condition that way everyone can get theirs sooner.

That's fine. I just wanted clarification - whether the tracking numbers were for the orders on the Google Doc (Like you said), or if there was a mix up.

The LightSaver is a 96-key layout board. What do you mean by TKL?

If I were you, I'd just pass the love (sell at cost) to someone who would use it well.

I am planning on that (selling at cost), or trading for a TKL kit that I missed. Duck Orion was the Duck TKL, right?.

I bought into this GB before trying a 96% board for an extended period of time. I found that I don't like the super compressed layout as much as just a regular TKL. I don't use the numpad as much as I use the navigation keys.

Yes. Orion was one of the TKLs. There's many other older Duck TKL models you could find. Best of luck in finding the right keyboard for you!

SS plates have always been a bit hit and miss from Duck. My Octagon V2 has this, and a lot of scratches.

Burn marks on the underside of SS plates are normal. For those who received your boards, please check your PCB to make sure it fully works. I've had many contact me after the fact months or years later mentioning that there are issues. As mentioned in the OP, I can only guarantee damages/defective items for 7 days from the day you receive the items.

On another note, I've advised Duck that the packages that were received are in good order. Now we wait for the remainder of the first batch :).

Plug in the PCB by itself and use tweezers and stick it in each of the through-holes for the switch. If it works, it'll register on a switch test program such as Aquakeytest or Switch Hitter (Elite Keyboards).

That makes sense, thanks! So basically just bridge them all like the switch would. I too was worried I wouldn't be able to build it in time as I am still waiting for parts.

Elton:
Duck's team forgot my extra PCB/Plate combo.  I'll be PM'ing you...  And of course, thank you for all your hard work making sure these buys go so smoothly.  Out of the last 5 keyboards I've gone in on, this was the last I purchased and the first to come!!!  WHAT?!  No one knows how to do it like Duck/Elton!  Thanks brother!

Anyone know what sort of LEDs I want if I want them to be diffused with minimal light leak between each hole? I know there are LEDs with different lenses on top but I'm not really sure what I'm looking for

Yup, second hand market will be the only place to get one. The first 20 v3s are just barely making their way to their owners so I’d keep your eyes peeled if you want to grab one.

I'm also an idiot and tightened the screw too much on one side and it cracked the acrylic. Not that noticeable unless its up close but is there a way of buying a replacement?
Also any guides on how to program it?

Might not be able to buy replacements, but the second link you had showed CAD files for diffuers on the Viper/Eagle, so maybe he'll release the CAD files for LSV3 and you can get new ones cut :)

Oh that'll ben nice to get my own done.

Also is the flip key still the right key above backspace? Can't get the board into bootloader mode so I can flash the layout I made.

UK duty is usually an £8 fee plus 20% VAT so as mine was £25 it must be approximately £100 declared value. I won't have it till Monday to confirm the listed value though.

Picked mine up at the post office yesterday. Packaging was amazing and everything seems to be in working order.

I originally bought this because I wanted the 96 key layout and Duck's boards obviously have a stellar reputation, but I'm really amazed at the build quality. The anodizing is perfect and the overall fit and finish is beyond any other board I've purchased.

What version of O2D Keymapper are you using? I was using v1.10.XXX and it was giving me the same thing as you were getting. I had to use v1.11.665 to get it to work.

Small feedback for the packaging. The screws were in a small bag that was fully taped down onto the base of the board. That is great for keeping them secure, but a nightmare to get off without a) ripping it and screws flying everywhere b) using something sharp, right next to your expensive board.

Always go with legs if you can. This will avoid any switches being slightly not centered.

PCB mount isnt required but will help with alignment.

Here's what I've done in the past with plate mounted switches:
1. Install switches on 4 corners to provide some structure, don't solder yet
2. Install 1 row of switches and keycaps while checking alignment, switch seating, and excessive gaps. Make the appropriate adjustments
3. Solder one leg per switch and check alignment again. Make the appropriate adjustments
4. Solder other leg of each switch
5. Repeat steps 2-5 till complete

So I just got the keyboard, and it looks great. One thing I will say is the inconsistency in the steel plates. One of them is perfect, but the other one is similar to what someone else posted earlier. A lot of burn and scratch marks on the underside. I'm not sure if we're eligible to get another one because of this, but it's a bummer on an otherwise great product.

I don't think cherry has silent or speed switches available in pcb mounted anyway, only switch mounted so don't worry too much.

VicareyG just ran a GB for pcb mount mx silent blacks so they do exist. Most stores just stock the plate mount variant since they’re slightly cheaper.

Hey, just got my shipment in!

I noticed my PCB has some surface scratches, but I don't think any of the scratches are damaging any traces. So not the end of the world.
Is this the type of defect you're able to replace?

They have PCB mounted versions of them: https://www.cherry.de/PDF/EN_CHERRY_MX_SILENT_BLACK.pdf
Just my own screw up that I didn't read about it before. Contacted Cherry directly, maybe I can get some with PCB mounted ones.

Thanks for the update!

No problem! I love your keyset, but unfortunately the post GB prices at KeyClack seems a bit high  :(.


Always go with legs if you can. This will avoid any switches being slightly not centered.

How much did you end up selling your kit for ;)?

Mine has the burn marks on the underside as well exactly like with the other user posted. You're luckier than me with the perfect plate  :)). Unfortunately, it's not eligible for a replacement.

I would understand if there's a scratch on the housing itself, but this is on the PCB and you won't be able to see it. Again, this is not eligible for a replacement.

Yeah, idk either. I thought on the Orion V2 that i had, using those functions cycled through the modes. Not sure what I'm missing.

I soldered the corners switches and started testing the PCB. I noticed that the top right key, the one that is supposed to be PgDn is only affecting the smd rgb leds. It doesn't register as PgDn? Is there anything wrong? It seems to change a few underglow mods.

Also noticed that when I was inspecting and testing the PCB. I also noticed that all underglow RGBs are set to a white colour.. previous PCBs all had colour cycle on by default.

Regarding the key in top right corner.. I assume it can be remapped to whatever using O2D software.

One thing I noticed regarding the RGB  underglow is that the numbers in the configurator do not match up with the board itself. The configurator shows RGB No. 1 being at ~ the F1 location when in fact it is at Left Shift.

So the color you input for No. 1 will actually appear where the configurator shows #16. No. 2 will be at #17, 3 at #1, etc. The order continues on clockwise.

Not a big deal, but maybe something that whoever wrote the software could easily correct on the graphic.

Don't know exactly what I'm doing until I receive the holtites. I also have some mill max sockets that I can use if the holtites don't fit well or won't stay in place on the bottom row. The LED holtites are all installed and working, but the GB I bought them from shipped led separate from switches so I'm still waiting on them to see exactly how I'm going to do this.

I just received my holtites today and the fit is pretty loose. To hold them in place, I added a small amount of solder to the top of the pad/holtite.

Interesting. I was planning to just tack the holtites in place on the bottom of the PCB.

So does your solder actually flow over the top of the holtite and actually sandwich the top lip against the PCB?

A word of caution though, if you're using the needle point electronics tweezers like these (https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/619%2B%2BnqB7rL._SL1500_.jpg) do not stick the tweezers into the sockets to make the connection. That is exactly how you rip pads on a pcb.

Picked up mine from the post office today and the anodization looks immaculate  :-* Unfortunately still haven't decided what switches I'm going to build it with though.

Tested the PCB and just wanted to confirm with anyone who might know. The left switch pads of the split backspace don't register as anything. I assume the default layout just doesn't have anything assigned to those pads but since I plan on building it with a HHKB style alpha section I want to make sure that everything is in order.

There is already a TMK fork for a few Duck boards. (https://github.com/xauser/tmk_keyboard/tree/xauser/keyboard)
Maybe it helps and saves you some time.
Aware of this one, but it does not work with V3 PCB. Generated hex can be flashed but keyboard wont work.

Error log from dmesg when attaching device:
Code: [Select]
[ 9974.489579] usb 3-7: device descriptor read/64, error -71
[ 9975.649537] usb 3-7: device not accepting address 119, error -71
[ 9975.649572] usb usb3-port7: unable to enumerate USB device

Need to investigate this issue further.

Is anyone else's ss plate a bit warped? Or is that normal? It's not unusable but I'm just curious about what other people have noticed.

Picked up mine from my local post office today, all arrived safely :). Will test the PCBs tonight. I'll have a spare PCB and plate (either SS or polycarbonate) in a few weeks when I figure out which I prefer, so let me know if you need them.

Yep mine is. Warped and has scorch marks. I've not had a steel plate before but from reading around I get the impression it's fairly normal.

Packaging seemed overkill, but better be safe than sorry  ;)

Silver top and bottom, steel plate, retooled blacks (5pin, pushing 99 of those suckers through the PCB was a PITA, but certainly worth it!), lubed and polycarb films added, 52g springs. OG cherry stabs, lubed and clipped. Caps are GMK Oblivion, Hagoromo Base kit

FYI, hard to notice but the diffuser acrylic has plastic film on both sides that you can peel off. Seasoned Duck enthusiasts probably know this already.

Tested both PCBs, work fine. Oddly, the top-right (MFN) key wasn't doing anything on one of them initially, but worked fine after re-flashing the stock firmware.

Elton: The backlight LEDs defaulting to a slow breathing cycle is kinda confusing when testing the PCB, as you have to wait a while to ensure that the cycle isn't just at its 'off' point... Maybe suggest to Duck to default to fixed-on backlight LED mode for shipped boards?

Looks great and I bet typing on it is even greater.

I am still planning/preparing my build and will go for the same layout as you. The one issue I have is to where to put the Fn key. How are you guys solving this?

Well it all depends on the form factor of the keyboard. This will be my first 96%.

On TKLs I put Fn somewhere between RAlt and RCtrl. On my Octagon and TX75 I have it right next to Up Arrow key.

It would have been a natural place to put it on the same location as on my Octagon, but that's where the numpad cluster starts on the Lightsaver.

I use Fn key for switching layers and other keyboard specific functions. I thought everyone used Fn for that specific purpose? :-)

I have similar setup as yours on TKL and 65/75% layouts.  Although I prefer to use separate keypad with smaller layouts.  I try hard to avoid using combos (two hands or pinky action).  So, I don't use FN much.  Don't know how relevant, but here is my set up on LSV3.
I use default top right key as MFN for infrequently used functions.  I have split NUMPLUS and use the key next to NUM* as dedicated layer change key.  I just use two layers and since there are plenty of keys, most frequently used functions have dedicated keys.  For example, in the odd layer, numpad functions normally, in the even layer, NUMLOCK, NUMDIV, NUM*, 7, 8, 9 funtion as TKL editing cluster.  This makes things easy to go back and forth between TKL and LSV3 (or any other CP layout).

That's what NumLock has always been for. NumLock on = numbers show up when you press the buttons, NumLock off = secondary legends (arrows, home/end and pageup/down). The Lightsaver supports this by default

If anyone can laser-cut some acrylic to confirm fitment that would be great. I measuring it up with digital calipers and everything lines up when printed from Autocad 1:1.

You can copy the cutouts from the M65 plate file (https://github.com/Keyclack/M65-A/blob/master/RAMA-M65-KEYCLACK-PLATE-03-1.DXF).

Everything should be able to get it cut from ponoko for less than $100, even cheaper if you have access to a laser cutter or skip the matte black top and opal inlay for underglow. I have enough prototypes to account for kerf and ensure a snug fit between certain pieces.

Does anyone know how to adjust the brightness of the in-switch leds? I just can't figure it out, I can only change between all the different lighting effects with the led functions.

1. LED Ctrl
2. Select one of multiple LED groups (e.g. LED Alpha)
3. Select LED Up or Down to adjust brightness
4. LED Ctrl once more to exit brightness adjustment

Howdy everyone, I made a plate (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1fitAX-lB1SgCqEknrVAg2rBwbNfbbUf-/view) with a few options, the bottom one is meant for DIY. If anyone can laser-cut some acrylic to confirm fitment that would be great. I measuring it up with digital calipers and everything lines up when printed from Autocad 1:1. I should have an acrylic case finished soon if someone wants a place to drop in their extra plate + PCBs.

That link up above is the file. Once you have that you can send it to a company of your choosing to have a plate cut. Make sure to let them know which one you want because that file contains all three plates.

As far as I can tell the first one looks like a stock plate, second one has switch top opening cutouts with a single bottom row layout and the last one has no switch top opening with the same bottom row layout as the second plate.

Edit: last plate also looks like it’s meant to accept plate mount stabs instead of PCB mount. I’m not entirely sure but the holes do look identical to the ones on a plate I had made recently.

Bad news! With SA caps (Cherry is fine) the bottom row, especially the space bar, scratch on the inside of the bezel. It appears there is not enough clearance, might wanna inform Duck on that and keep a bit more distance in future designs. I'll probably have to swap back to GMK tonight :( Anyone else with the same problem or any ideas for solution? I might instead also just use the GMK Oblivion white spacebar, the modifiers are okay. RIP beautiful spacebar thock.

How is your clearance between the top row and the bezel above?  If there is more room there, then the plate can be wiggled up with the plate screws slightly unfastened.

3mm is the classic, but most people like to use 1.8mm for switches, so you can buy 100 and use the leftovers as in-switch for another board

Title: Re: [GB] Lightsaver V3 Kustom Keyboard - All Shipped!
Post by: OfTheWild on Thu, 28 December 2017, 20:16:10
So there seems to be quite a bit of struggle to get this all working - mainly because of lack of official documentation in a place where people would think to find it like the OP or something. I'm trying to piece together what I can find and hopefully someone makes use of it:

Firstly, I would hope we could get an update to the "Lightsaver" thread in the Media forum: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=53942.0
This has a lot of the FAQ from the v1 and v2 boards which will answer a lot of the questions about "What does the MFN key do?" and "How do i change modes and colors?" which you can find in the LED section of that post.

Notes on how to program the board for noobs: ** I am assuming you already have your favorite flashing utility setup somewhere. I use Flip, some prefer dfu... whatever.

1. You need to get the latest version of O2D keymapper which has the "Lightsaver V3" model in it: Link (http://kbdlab.co.kr/index.php?mid=board_sw&document_srl=100301) (scroll down or "find" 02D_KeyMapper_Custom_v1.11.665.exe on the bottom of this post)

2. The "DFU" bootloader process is to unplug the board and hold the "flip" key which on the LightsaverV3 is the "ESC" key and plug it back in
 
3. Change your computer to "Korea" as the location so that your arrow keys stop showing up as "?" instead of arrows:
Quote from: filphil
Change your region on the pc to korea then restart and it should fix that. http://i.imgur.com/ZN1QdAL.png
On my Windows10 it looks like this: https://i.imgur.com/oaPeXNO.png I also downloaded the Korean language pack but I am still unable to get O2D to show up with arrows. It works anyway with them being question marks.

4. O2D keymapper function is something else.. I would start by looking through this guide for the V2 (http://www.adamfalwell.com/projects/octagon/assets/lightsaverv2-layout-editing-and-updating-tutorial.pdf) or review the thread in the media forum here (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=53942.0) Some notes that I have for this:
a. Set the "change layer" key in all 4 "layer 1" "layer 2" etc so that you can just hit that key to cycle through each.
b. The "LED- Func, Modi, Alpha, Num" are to edit/change those regions of the keyboard.

5. Setting your RGB colors is done through the O2D drop down for "RGB Color Preset". Note that its upsidedown in the diagram. The RGB LED's begin with number 1 at the Capslock position and go clockwise around the board. On your LSv3 the 5 lights in front for the spacebar area is left to right - 3,4,5,6,7. "Apply" this and it will automatically pick up in your next hex flash upload.

6. **IMPORTANT** before trying to save your config (if you dont do this, O2D will crash and you will lose all your work!), create a dummy file in the o2d directory and then when saving, overwrite it. I was getting a "Runtime error 76" (https://i.imgur.com/aq0r09X.png) and then it closed the app. I then made a file called lsv3.hex in the same directory as the o2d exe and now it shows up in the save box to be overwritten.

7. Flash your board - unplug it.. hold ESC and plug it back in (should show up dark/dead). Flash with Atmel Flip or whatever you use. And it should work.

8. Skip all this and use QMK thanks to rasmusx's fork which is now included in the QMK master. link (https://github.com/qmk/qmk_firmware/tree/master/keyboards/lightsaver)
I'm hoping that one day i'll be able to figure out how to get it loaded into EasyAVR


** I will try and edit this post as I figure it out more.

I'm attaching my layout and *.hex for others to use if they want.

I haven't screwed the base together, so maybe it'll be fine. I noticed it slightly bending, which worries me about the long run.

I brought it up cause I saw that duck is accommodating for screw in stabs, and maybe I got sent a version without screw cutouts, it's odd to me that there'd be cutouts for the LEDs, but the screws (which are the same protruding height), don't have cutouts.

Those files are for a regular 1.5mm plate. I am sure polycarb (or delrin?) would hold up at that thickness but I think acrylic is too brittle.

Thanks to the Duck team for creating this, and to Elton for running an efficient and well communicated GB!

Regarding the capabilities made available on this PCB - is there anywhere that we can see the feature listing?

I don't use windows, and am instead generating my layout through QMK (using rasmusx's layout as a basis) rather using O2D.


I can't seem to find any information about this PCB anywhere?! Can anyone help out with links and resources to help?

Crazy markup but someone on r/mm posted this: https://www.reddit.com/r/mechmarket/comments/879tyk/usil_h_lsv3_pcb_alps64_bmini_ex_x2_fc980c_shine/

unsoldered stuff has been going at a premium lately

you might have better luck buying a built pcb/plate or a desoldered one

Does anyone have a ELI5 guide of how to use QMK for the LSV3? I'm very new to things like this and have no idea where to start

...like a 5yr old thats used QMK before on other boards? ...or like a 5yr old that doesnt have a "build environment" set up for compiling the needed .hex file to flash to the board?

Oof, yeah that's pretty steep. More reason to join the TC-V3 buy now :p

Thanks for finding this though!

Theres a bunch of tutorials about getting a linux environment set up to compile qmk. You can probably just follow along the QMK documentation (https://docs.qmk.fm/)... however it seems to be hit or miss if you have windows10 if the built in linux kernel for something like Ubuntu will work. I personally went with MSYS2... but i'll be honest, I tend to try and do as much as possible using GUI tools like easyavr or just recently starting to get a successful build using the beta online configuration tool: http://config.qmk.fm/

It's really easy, just follow the instructions. I compiled the source on my imac and it works fine.

If you have Windows 10, I found it very easy to install the Windows Subsystem for Linux (Bash). To compile the hex file for my USB-USB converter, I just copy and paste the following command in the terminal, Andrew being the folder name where my keymap file is kept.
Code: [Select]
cd /mnt/c/QMK
make converter/usb_usb:Andrew

So, I acquired a built kit from Reddit, and it showed up with the front plastic piece broken. How in the world do I go about getting it replaced?

I'm in the same boat as you, my acrylic front diffuser is also broken. I have contacted Elton quite a few times already, and he told me twice he's going to ask Duck about it, but I have yet to hear back.

I managed to "glue" mine back together using IPS Weld-On 3. The crack is still visible, but I have a solid piece that I can measure now and replicate. I'll make a few with a laser cutter, if I can get a decent drawing done.

I'd recommend contacting thebeephaha on reddit. He's based in Seattle WA and does a lot of custom pieces for the community with his Glowforge.

if you want to get the diffuser cut yourself, you can download the .dwg from kbdlab here (http://kbdlab.co.kr/index.php?mid=board_housing&document_srl=4623261)

Hi I just bought the kit from another seller

After I soldered them all, I found that 5tgv colum does not work entirely
Is this problem with pcb? How should I fix my problem? Any thought??

Thanks

from my experience, usually when there is a short along a column it means that one of the soldering points along the top or bottom of the column is not working correctly. you can try to identify that point and fix it. if you can't figure out the problem you can create jumps to each of those keys from neighboring keys.

No but I uploaded a .dxf file for a plate which will support switch top removal earlier in the thread. You may have to modify it for your preferred layout.
