Please ask any questions you have or leave any feedback that's on your mind, that's the purpose of an IC after all :)

I'm a bit confused- is the 10į angle built into the case? Or is there an included stand that raises it to that angle?

Thank you all for the support!

It's built into the case, I was considering a two piece design where the bottom wedge could be removed to adjust the angle but I decided to keep it once piece so there was no seam. I'll add some more renders later today to show this better.

First of all, very nice! Consider me interested.
How much space is in each unit? I guess it will fit SA profile artisans? How about slightly bigger/higher ones (Archetype's Kolkrabba comes to mind)?
Maybe it's possible to slant the lid, so that the upper rows have a bit more space. That'll fit the already angled case quite well I can imagine. Just a suggestion.

Each cutout is 20mmx20mm with a 2mm radius in each corner and can accommodate artisans up to 15.5mm tall, how much taller would it need to be to accommodate the Kolkrabba?

I will play around with the design a bit but I don't think a slanted lid will work, the side profile probably won't look right with 2 different angles.

The Kolkrabba for example is almost 2cm tall (about 19.8mm), while SA R1 caps are about 16-17mm in height.
So a bit more height-space would be appreciated!

Thanks for your feedback, I will amend the design to accommodate taller caps.

As per the earlier suggestion, maximum keycap height has been increased to 18mm, this fits SA R1 with plenty of room to spare, updated renders have been added to show this. More renders with the lid will be coming soon.

Planning for around a month from now if the proto meets my expectations.

Like AuthenticDanger said, 20mmx20mm squares with 2mm radiused corners, currently 5mm deep.

I'd be down for a thriftier case.

I need more slots than I need fancy metals , hehe.

I received the proto unit today and am very happy with the quality, the ano and colour are great and there are no machining marks so it looks like I will be continuing with this factory. I still have some final details to work out before I open the GB but expect it within the next few weeks.

In the meantime, enjoy some photos of the proto (full album)

Unfortunately it looks like Naptime will overshoot my initial estimate so I've made a quick second IC form to see how I will be going ahead with this.

Can you reduce the size of it to bring the cost/price down?

I like the simplicity of this design, but like others mentioned there are other cases such as gray studio and sisi box which come in closer to the 100 mark.

I will be looking into this depending on the result of this new form, will also be looking into other ways to drop the weight.

Hi again, GB details have been finalised.

I have decided to run this as an in-stock buy, I will be placing an order for a small number in various colours (final numbers TBC). There will be a raffle when they arrive and I have confirmed the number of A-stock units I have, they will ship within a few days of payment. I'm hoping to receive them mid-July.

I have decided not to change the design for now because of how happy I am with the proto, I may consider something smaller later on.

Damn. That price went up a lot, almost $200. . What are you reasons why you did not want to do a GB? With so many other competitive options itís easy to go the other route than this case. Although the case design is nice. Many other cases will be in GB phase soon. Very unfortunate.

Edit: it is over $200 for USA. Prob the most expensive case that comes with no extras lol

Running a GB brings about a ton of headaches, from payment providers holding payments to the factory not delivering, running as in-stock shifts the risk from the buyers to me, gives people more time to save money for it and delivers a better buying experience - you buy it and it's shipped within a few days, much better than buying now and waiting 2 months for it to ship.

I understand there other cheaper options out there, I feel Naptime offers some unique features, namely the angled design and the heft which make it ideal for a display case, most other options are intended to be used as storage/transport cases.

If your artisan case falls on to your keyboard and doesn't obliterate it, is it even worth the purchase? With this case you're guaranteed at least a decent dent.

You're paying for the heftiness :cool:

I like the design very much, but because of the extremely high price I let it pass.

There are options available for half the price.

After all, it will be used as a storage case ;)

No, i as far as foam for travel or rubber bands like the icebox does. Possible rubber feet so they dont damage your table. Etc. stuff like that should be included for a price like this. Many other cases coming out with half this price and offer similar and more options.

I think you're missing the key point, this is not a storage case, it's a display case.

Like I just said, this is not for travel.

The case has cutouts on the bottom for rubber bumpons and they will be included in each purchase, I haven't posted any pictures of this yet because I'm waiting to receive my bumpons.

No, i dont think you understand. Obviously we arenít traveling left and right with our cases. Iím saying add on are always nice, especially for this price point. Whatever the add on is, its always nice to have. Design is awesome but you could probably cut cost down by removing some weight, using a different material, or finding a new factory. Iím sure youíll sell out of your 15-30 cases youre going to order but if you want theses in everyoneís hand, you may want to be open minded and take suggestions. Just saying but good luck .

Not to beleaguer the point... but I think everyone understands. As you yourself seem to have realized, this case isn't for everyone. It's for the subset of artisan collectors who most likely already have a case they can use for travel, or something that costs a fraction of the price, and want a display case for their desk.

To clarify, I was being  (unhelpfully) sardonic here. I've supported King's project since he unveiled it, and yes it is a hunk of metal--there's no real reason to [edit: literally] pick it up  :p

Yeah it wasnít hard to notice you were on one side. That the problem with these IC and GBs. They always have fans that donít let people with opinion and actual suggest speak without saying something that redirects the convo or adds nothing to it.

Yeah I know, I recently bought the Wongbox which is also a display case for around 80 USD. It's not premium as this, but it will do the job.

If someone is willing to pay 200-400$ for resin keycaps, surely they will buy an nice aluminum display case that has a display tilt built in.

Alternatively, you could also buy a tackle box from walmart for less than 20$

God forbid someone pays close to $200 for something that protects and displays caps that are most times worth well well over that.

Your "suggestions and opinions" are for someone to add in free stuff, which is obnoxious, so don't play the woe is me card here like you're being persecuted by people who just want to buy an artisan case.

I am not convinced that many people are willing to pay more than $ 200 for an artisan case/display. This is very pricey, regardless of the quality and appearance. But if you're willing to pay, that's your choise.

Nevertheless, I must say that this artisan case is very beautiful. Personally prefer to spend that much money on a complete set of GMK keycaps for example.

A few small quick updates
  • the order has been placed for the full run
  • expecting them to be done in 4 weeks plus a few more weeks for them to be shipped to me
  • to keep the price I was originally quoted I had to do all one colour, all naptime units will be black, just like the proto

Yeah, unfortunately to get silver going it would've brought the price up even more and there wasn't enough demand from the original form to justify it.

Now SS though
