If the options are known ahead of time.  Good GB should have that.  I've seen them where options were different/modified and completely new options appeared on the GB form when it went live.  Caused many to miss out.

I will definitely release all options ahead of time! And I'll also release all the GB details at least 1 week before the GB starts.

The remade prototypes should be finishing up soon, hope to have an update on that soon :).

Excellent! I'm so excited to see the progress! I really hope to own one of these!

Awesome! Thanks for letting us know ahead of time that you will let us know ahead of time :D This will certainly be my end game board. hope everything goes smoothly with your protos.

Hey guys,

I just wanted to officially write down some information that has been made public:

The prototypes are almost done and should ship to me by next week, the factory has matched the desired color, but the finishes still need to be evaluated for quality.

There will be a build stream done of one of the prototypes.

The current plan is to offer more than 50 slots, the actual number has not been revealed.

There will be 4 color options, if these prototypes turn out well: Deep Ocean Blue, Pirate Black, Stormy Grey, and Cloud White. These were the top 4 choices in the IC! (Well, purple was before white, but I think white fits the theme better)

While there are plans for custom knobs, they aren't ready yet and likely won't be ready in time for the group buy. The knobs will not delay this group buy, so there will probably be a future group buy for the custom knobs.


I hope to be able to show everyone more once the prototypes arrive!

Yes! I have some very nice knobs lined up, they just aren't custom. When I receive prototypes and build them out, you'll see them.

Also, it is QMK, so you can make any key the cmd key. Alternatively you can go System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard > Modifier Keys and set it up there as well

I updated the gist with the ISO PCB support :) The gist shows the PCB support, the plate layouts won't necessarily agree with the PCB (I won't have a fully universal plate), but I will release DXF files for plates.

I'll have more information about plates coming up soon.

Hello everyone,

I have some unfortunate news. This weekend, I received the two Satisfaction 75 prototypes. And unfortunately, they both fell far short of my quality bar. While the machining was decent for the most part, the finishing quality was quite poor, and frankly unacceptable.

This means two things are going to happen - 1st, this group buy is now going to be delayed again. I'm going to have to spend more of my own money to do a 3rd prototyping round with another factory. That being said, I am very happy with my decision to frontload all the spending and prototyping in order to execute a successful group buy, and I will continue to use this method until I'm confident that my selected manufacturer can deliver.

Second, I am now opening up an IC for my Brutal60 board, which will run before Satisfaction 75, so that I have time to work with a new factory on achieving the desired quality. I have already run a private group buy for the Brutal60, and already have a factory that can meet the quality bar, so as long as there is interest, the Group Buy for Brutal60 will start very soon. Keep your eyes open for a post on that soon!

But not all is lost! I still have two more functioning prototypes of the Satisfaction75, which I will be using to show off some of the cool features, and reveal some new information :). Here are some photos, where you can see some of the issues. I also wish I had a more fitting keycap set for this, but I had to use ePBT Greyscale, since it was all I had available.






Example of issues:



It's unfortunate that the group buy will be delayed, but please understand this is for the best. I want the Satisfaction 75 to be a satisfying experience when it is finally delivered, and I'm not willing to compromise on that.

I'm more than willing to wait for a group buy when it comes to QC issues. I'm glad that you're doing all these prototypes before running it.

This is basically the way it will be mounted:
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=99959.msg2739730#msg2739730

Same as the Brutal60, but there are 12 potential mounting points instead of 6. You can check out the force displacement charts in the FAQ section of the first few posts.

FR4 plates will be add-on options, brass plate will come with the kit by default.

Shame the quality wasn't up to snuff, but I'd rather wait to get an acceptable finished product. Keep it up, you've got a great product there!

There is only one thing I don't like and that is the right aligned usb port.

Hey guys,

I have another update! I've found a new factory to produce the board. This took much less time than I thought, so the group buy will likely open sometime in April!

I've placed an order for a sample, and it should be arriving in upcoming weeks.
Once the sample is confirmed good, I'll release some super secret details!

The weight design is finalized. You guys will all get to see it soon ;)

Is there any chance  to get a raw non anodized keyboard? Planning to cerakote it and I'd rather not have to have the anodization sandblasted off if I can save it.

Hey guys,

I just wanted to officially write down some information that has been made public:

The prototypes are almost done and should ship to me by next week, the factory has matched the desired color, but the finishes still need to be evaluated for quality.

There will be a build stream done of one of the prototypes.

The current plan is to offer more than 50 slots, the actual number has not been revealed.

There will be 4 color options, if these prototypes turn out well: Deep Ocean Blue, Pirate Black, Stormy Grey, and Cloud White. These were the top 4 choices in the IC! (Well, purple was before white, but I think white fits the theme better)

While there are plans for custom knobs, they aren't ready yet and likely won't be ready in time for the group buy. The knobs will not delay this group buy, so there will probably be a future group buy for the custom knobs.


I hope to be able to show everyone more once the prototypes arrive!

With the change in manufacturer are these still the colours you are hoping for? Really excited for this!

So I'm pretty new to the mechanical keeb community, however I'm in love with this design. How much assembly knowledge will be needed to put it together?
