Could you do an acrylic bottom case or add acrylic strips between the top and bottom cases for underglow? There doesn't seem to be too many options for rectangular 60% cases with underglow and there seems to be a demand for some since the duck viper v3 gb filled its 100 spots in one minute.
At this point, we're not going to be adjusting the design unless something catastrophic happens. For a first time runner, we believe that keeping things simple will benefit us due to our relative inexperience.
That said, we're planning to do a second round after this round concludes, with a limited 25 slots for polycarbonate housing. Do look out for that :)

The prototype is currently in queue for production. ETA is before 5th March, but I would probably give it a couple more days. In the meantime, we also got in touch with dr_derivative for some cool ass renders with his new and immaculate keyset, the ePBT TA Origins. Check em out in our original post!

Count me as interested.

I'm wanting to put in a XD75 PCB & so will have to do my own plate. Sharing a DXF file could help but I'm pretty sure I could replicate the demensions with enough precision. There could however be others interested in this as well as boardwalk, so that could be something to consider too.

Interested.

Is it possible to add split space support to the universal plate? (I can make my own otherwise)

I'm interested in split space too. I'm keen on trying out a waffling60 PCB in one of these.

We will be releasing the plate files soon after we fulfill the first round of GB, so feel free to modify those to your own liking.

Closing on 550 responses as of 16/3/20. Thank you guys for the tremendous support! We will be moving over to the GB phase once our second prototype arrives, and when the typing tests are completed.

Congrats on having so many responses. Dumb question: what if we decide to not use the plate, is it dangerous to go through with this 'plateless gasket' mount?

The PCB wouldn't have anywhere to mount properly without the plate, as the dimensions of the PCB would be smaller than where the plate will sit.
You can feel free to experiment with different plate materials and layouts once we get the plate files released though  :p

That plate looks interesting

Thanks!

Yeah, I'm currently in the midst of updating the main post. I just thought discord would be the faster option since most of our updates go there first :)

Thanks.

$140 seems way too good to be true at these quantities. Is there any contingency at all for remaking defective parts? Is there at least a physical prototype?

Yes we've got an agreement with the factory with regards to defective parts should it arise. 2nd prototype is on the way to us at the moment, will have more pictures and typing tests available in the next few days :)

Thank you for the love!

Yes, it will! We have also made adjustments for the case to fit PCBs with mini-USB B ports, so older 60% PCBs (GH60 etc) would work with the 3C.

Thank you!
With the 3C, we aim to provide a no-frills yet premium typing experience at an affordable price point.
The Tofu was the gateway drug to this hobby for many of us because of its build quality, affordability, and availability.
Hopefully, the HEX.3C can be mentioned under the same breath as the legendary Tofu someday ;)

Not sure if this was already discussed and its pretty close to GB date.
Any chance to add a a rose gold option?
US shipping seems high, any chance to reduce that?

The price we got from our shipping partner was at USD 36. We will try looking for other options amidst these trying times. Shipping prices have been affected by the virus.
It's unlikely we'll add another color option as of now. But rose-gold will definitely be in our sights for the subsequent rounds.

Around 1h 15mins to go to the GB, GB page still ain't approved, so do lookout for a post on /r/mm or join the discord to access the foem and join the GB. Thanks all, for your support :)
