Nothing new from the factory yet, cases are almost all cut, everything should be ready to ship as soon as the PCBs arrive.  I paid for DHL shipping, so the boards should be here just a few days after production.

I'm thinking round 2 GB will launch the last week of November, hopefully after all the R1 orders ship.

Thanks for the update. So hopefully it will be shipping within the next 2 weeks it sounds like.

I believe so.  I just got the inital production board assembly images from the factory and it looks good, the main run should be taking place now.

Any updates from last week on how production is going? And are the cases all cut?

Got an update last night:

"Thanks for your waiting.

This small batch order is under DIP ,and will be shipped next week at the latest.

Thanks for your understanding agian."

Cases are all cut except white POM, as those take extra meterial processing, they take a bit longer than the other ones.

Official Round 2 dates are Nov 24th through Dec 2nd, or until we reach 50 orders of each design.  This will be a combo round with the Gothic50 kit, a compact layout version of the Gothic70.

Will the sales be made through your Etsy page per usual?

On one hand I am excited for R2 but on the other I wish I had gotten R1 already to know if I should jump on the Gothic50. Not sure if I like the split life yet.

Correct, I'll post links when it goes live, or it can be accessed through my store directly.

Fair, I was hoping to have R1 out the door last week, but I don't want to delay the next round too much longer.  I'll have R1 shipped well before the parts for R2 start arriving at this point so it makes sense to kick it off.

Really wish this had been an option in r1, I'd rather have the 50 than the 70  :))

Wish I could get the r1 board in first to see how it is before r2 launches, given how quickly r1 filled up.

I'm excited to participate in R2, but I wanted to confirm if it'd be possible to change my shipping address (probably in mid-late December) before taking part. I know I'll be moving in early January, but the address hasn't been finalized so I was hoping to put in my current address until I have an update. Thanks in for all of your work!

Looks like the pages are up for the 70, how do we order the 50 instead?

Yes, shipping is probably going to be in March, as long as you message me with your order number before that, I can change the shipping address.

Message me through your order in Etsy, it's easier for me to track the request to the order that way.

The Gothic70 is based on the Arisu PCB, you can see it here: https://github.com/FateNozomi/arisu-pcb. The bottom row has less keys. You can have that style with the Gothic70 if you order the top layer with blockers, where the Gothic 70 PCB has extra keys.

Yep, thanks for that.  it's pretty much swapping the current bottom row for a WKL style (1.5u mods), and dropping the right side B key

Yeah, I don't know of an untracked option for packages in the US, lol.  you will get a tracking email when your order ships.

Okay, that is great to hear. Excited to get my hands on the board!

Quick note, I'm in the process of preflashing the firmware on the PCBs and quick QC to make sure all the columns and rows respond before packing.

This seems interesting, what's the production time on an order of all 3 parts (Case, PCB and plate)  if ordered this week ?

The first post says that new orders (round 2) don’t ship until March. The orders being shipped soon are round 1, for people who ordered months ago.

Gothic70 Round 1 orders start shipping tonight, will go out over the next week or so.  Round 2 I expect to ship in March, but will go out sooner if the fab gets me the PCBs faster this time.

For the r1 cases, I'm guessing not but are there holes in the bottom for putting feet on the board? If not, is it safe to drill holes for them in the acrylic, or is it safer to use something like a soldering iron to make the holes?

Yes, there are standard 4mm holes for the cone feet in the bottom of both rounds.
