How is the proto ordering process rolling along? Everything still good?

I've ordered the prototype. It should take around 3 weeks and will then need to make its way to me.

Interesting. I like this layout. I love how it goes with the Olive set.

More renders added. I only have ones that are more difficult to do left so they may take a bit more time to churn out.

Although I've dismissed the idea of pink and green in the reply above due to them not being versatile colours to match with keysets, I've been thinking about a deep red as a possibility since Wilba seems to like red.

LOL my opinion is irrelevant, I'm just the trace monkey. The PCB is navy, though...

Thought you were the muse that whispered into my ear

Deep red case with GMK Burgundy  :eek:
After doing one render with red, I've sort of convinced myself that I won't be offering it since it doesn't work with enough sets and it didn't look as good as I thought it would on the one set that I thought would be perfect for it.
Would you be OK with burgundy on black instead?

I'd only do either silver or grey, not both so I'll probably hold a poll for a couple of colour options. The only 2 colours that I'm definitely doing are the black and blue.

Oof! Thank you! Will probably go for black if silver won't push through  ;) But if ever silver will be chosen, please go for the light silver look like that of the keycult no. 2 :thumb:

I absolutely love this take on a 75%, the layout is perfect for me. I like the logo in the corner too, and love the overall board aesthetics. I'm totally interested! Would most like to see a blue/grey case if that's still being considered. :D

Black one and the blue one are ok too for me. Still hyped even if the red is not planned anymore.

Were you able to find out if the vendor that you ordered the current prototype from offers a white/e-white option? That would be my first choice if available (and I want to believe there are others of the same opinion).

Yes, the manufacturer can make e-white.

Yes, it will be an unbuilt kit. Maybe some things like the weight would be screwed on already but that would be about it.

The white with black weight is stunning. I really like how your design incorporates the weight.
This is a very tempting board; I don't think I'll be able to pass up on it.

Looking forward to the prototype.

Even though I use split spacebar for my work keyboard and I find it very useful for CAD, I don't want to support it for this keyboard because I think that the spacebar mounting and footprint is the most important when it comes to designing the mounting system so I don't want to complicate things by needing to add 2 more switch and stabiliser footprints.

Also, do you have an estimated price range yet?

Just raw polished and black PVD for the weight and logos.

I update pretty regularly so I'll be posting anything important like pricing as soon as I am able to.
