Mystic Works End of August Update

Wyvern Completion:
- I am finalizing case data for a second prototype. Main changes that will need to be made are the mounting for the weight to make it more solid (it flexes a little bit if it , and changes to how the cable is routed inside the case (pending PCB arrival)}
- PCB is complete, QMK/VIA implementations are close to/nearing completion. Maarten tells me that there is one small issue with the PCB but it has already been fixed for production files. I do not think I will be supporting split space bars on either PCB nor plate. I would have to deal with logistically helping people with obtaining new plate files, incorrect plates, and it would add more complexity and room for error on top of the already very complex PCB due to the many numpad options.
- I am ready to build the prototype once PCB arrives.

Timeline Updates:
- Prototypes/PCB are on track for late September GB, but still depends on timing of prototype 2 as well as how early I can send it to someone to build. Expect a GB between September and October.  Delivery at the most optimistic will be 3-4 months later, but expect delays as usual. MOQ of 150, limit of 300 ish, although I'm willing to bend on the limits if they really are surpassed.

Logistical Information:
- I will likely take over shipping/fulfillment for all international shipments as well as those heading to the USA. I have a vendor for Canada, but I still need to finalize some things so it's not official yet.
- If you live in a USA state that is NOT CA you will not have to pay taxes, only shipping. People who live in CA will have to pay state/local taxes.
- If you live in an international country, you will have to pay duties/VAT/customs fees yourself. Only the cost of the board needs to be paid to me.
- The reason for this is to simplify my logistics as well as allowing me to ensure the level of QC that I want.

Also, price has been updated; likely will go for $385 + ship/tax/duties (down from 400) for a black unit with any plate; e-white will be a couple dollars on top. Extra plates/PCBs will be available.

As always I apologize for the large delays recently, which has pushed back a groupbuy by two months. Unfortunately, I can't really do anything about it, and I appreciate everyone's patience in allowing me time to get everything finalized and finished. Hopefully, the board will be worth the wait! :)

Nice! Thanks for the update! I'm assuming you're also in CA which is why taxes will be charged if we're in CA. If you were also in the SF Bay Area, could you offer like some sort of pick up option to save on shipping fees and time?

Yeah, I'd rather not have people showing up at my house to pick up keyboards, due to both covid and privacy reasons. Shipping will be cheaper if you're close by.

Got it, makes sense. Just wanted to check!

Front height is about 18mm. Should be comfortable for most people.

Thank you!

Quick update: PCBs are shipping, foam samples have arrived. Prototype should be built sometime this week, hopefully!  :thumb:

The layout looks really interesting to me. Would you consider making PCBs available separately from the case itself?

Sorry, they won't be available separately, but you can buy extra PCBs for a kit.

Looking forwards to the complete proto!

Ooh, on that note, PCBs are en route to my home! They were due to arrive today but... hopefully tomorrow. Build stream @ 5pm PST https://www.twitch.tv/mysticworkskb tomorrow if nothing goes horribly wrong with the shipping!

PCBs have arrived! Beautiful matte black finish, absolutely love them. A big shoutout to Evy for doing these, very nice to work with.

Very excited to build these up tomorrow during the build stream. I'll be building the black prototype with H1 switches @ https://www.twitch.tv/mysticworkskb at 4pm PST tomorrow (9/17)! Hope to see some of y'all there.

Re: [IC] Wyvern - 65% + Southpaw Numpad - Prototype Built! 2nd Prototype Soon.

Prototype 2 being shipped right now!

https://imgur.com/a/XS8zc83 << Factory pictures here
The second picture shows the only flaw the factory found- accumulation of the E-coating on one of the spots for a foot to go. I've been assured this won't be an issue in the production run.






Coating looks great as far as I can tell. I'll be going through all changes that I made since the first prototype on another build stream!
We should be on track for a GB launch on 10/31 or so, but might have to push it back another week.
Also, VIA compatibility has been finished, and will be enabled out of the box. Just install VIA for easy key mapping.

Family issues have come up. Will need to be pushing it back. Very sorry about the delays.

Thanks.

As an update: Possibly start on 28th, as I'm sorting out bank stuff this week after family issues have cleared up over the last month. Sorry everyone for the unprecedented further delays. I'll do a GB thread once everything is finalized.

lmfao more crap came up
