More likely on Sat75 levels.

<3. This will definitely be more expensive than the sat75 however.

This looks like it'll be way out of my price range, but I'm really interested in how you did all the computations. Did you go all the way and take into account a spring inside a plastic box with a PCB stuck to the bottom of it?

Whoa. This is an interesting concept and design. I'm definitely interested in this.

Would it be possible to see a render of this with GMK Ursa? I feel like that would look pretty great with that bottom color. Very earthy.

I'll cover this in more detail in the write-up coming out soon. The answer is yes and no.

People in the 1980s, in general, were clearly just better than we are now in every measurable way.

There aren't any human words to describe how so totally in I would be to purchase this board.
I'm afraid if I try and express my excitement, I might summon some eldritch horror by mistake.

Best to just keep my mouth shut and wait for the GB.

Also, I'm really glad I recently paid off all my credit card debt... Future-er me can worry about paying for this.

Regarding pricing, since many people are commenting about it.

I do not have an estimate as of right now for how much this board will cost. I will do my best to keep the price under $1000, but I can't promise anything do to the complexity of the 3d printed piece.

Greater than $450. I'd assume this will at least be a $700 board. If not more.

Edit: NM. Yeah. My high end guess was a grand. But I expected him to try to get it under.

That was your 69th post.

$690 looks like a good best-case target to strive for.

Will this be limited? I'd hope for a non-limited GB, let the higher volume drive price down, even if only slightly.

Also: If the 3D sintered metal doesn't end up working out, maybe we could opt for something non-metallic? I'd be down with that.

Lol. Pretty sure he meant closer to $990.

But an alternative base option would be cool. The plate tech is interesting. Would be cool to see it in a more affordable package. Understand that removed the one large generative design aesthetic, but still.

And I doubt this will be unlimited. If unlimited GBs were easy, everyone would do them for lower prices and more profit. The problem with GBs of custom designs is that the designer really has to take over the QC aspect. And inspecting 200+ boards is nightmare enough. Not to mention the additional risk involved with higher volume.

$690, you heard it here first :p

But seriously, I can't estimate how much it will cost at this time.

Will this be limited? I'd hope for a non-limited GB, let the higher volume drive price down, even if only slightly.

This is my first board, and while unlimited GB sounds fantastic in regards to pricing, I would rather keep the production run small that I can feasibly QC each individual board.

As an alternative to the generative baseplate, having a generative design elsewhere in the board (side profile/back accent, weight emblem, etc.) would also be cool. That said I think if you **** for the moon you'd still probably fill your slots, I'd just be jealous.
