« on: Thu, 26 September 2019, 13:58:48 »
IC Here: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=100699.0



The time has come. Gaskety goodness in PLA with FR4 plates - some would call this the ultimate symphony of keyboard acoustics.

iT SoUndS gOoD

50 kits to be made.
$185 per kit, which includes:

1x Top Case
1x Bottom case
1x KBD75v2 PCB (QMK, RGB, USB-C)
1x Universal FR4 plate
1x kit of the gaskets and hardware required to fasten everything

Extra tops are $15/ea. The seamless design enables the whole color of the keyboard to be changed simply by swapping the top.

Timeline:

Sept 27 - GB start
Oct 10 - GB ends (or sooner if all spots fill up)
All invoices are to be paid 3 days after the GB ends.
Production of cases - 1 to 1.5 months.
Mid November - Shipping from keyboardbelle to you.

Shipping will be invoiced at the time of sending.

$20-25 dollars?  Do a USPS shipping calculation for just under a KG from the US.

Where the sound test at?

It was taken with a DLSR sitting on the desk, so it sounds a little harsher than it would to your ears.

Also, please put your full address. I've seen a few people just put a street address in the form. I'm not trying to play a game of guess the state/country/postal code :P

And we're full. 50 units in 8 hours - not bad for a small name designer :)

And cancellations/people who fail to pay invoices will forefit their spots, would extras might be available.

Thanks all.

Oof just 8 hours! Glad I spotted the GB going live in time. It pays to procrastinate at work haha.

When will the invoices go out? And to the email filled in the form, right?

Just waiting for Belle to finish getting her Nouvelle GB shipped out, so don't panic if you don't get an invoice for a couple days. I'm just waiting on her giving the go ahead before I start invoicing.

I assume there should be some space under the PCB. I'll just cut a copper sheet and place it in there

It's actually quite hefty since the prints are high infill. But as the user above me said, throwing a metal sheet in will be the best way. I'll get the proper dimensions for those that want to do that.

Alright, I'm ready to roll. Invoices are slowly going to trickle in, aiming to have them all out for Friday. Please don't put them off, just let me know if you'd like to forfeit your spot so the payment phase doesn't drag on forever.

For those wondering about the case dimensions for sleeves and such, its 34 x 14 x 4 inches centimeters (SORRY!) when fully built.

Thanks all,

Andy

I explained it in the cancellation email. Just a hiccup with the PayPal verification since I'm not doing the shipping (keyboardbelle is), I don't have shipping labels to input to get the money released. I'll get it sorted and start again tonight! Sorry for the mixup.

Do you have considerations for a polycarbonate printed case seeing how that seems to be the current rage right now?

I don't think there is polycarbonate filament - it has to be machined from blocks. With that being said PLA is very similar in density and appearance to PC
