Hey everyone,

Primus is a 75% size customized keyboard kit. From the appearance, it has a perfectly symmetrical design. It adopts a mature standard primary key design and is available in WK or WKL in the top case. The bottom case partially covered by top case and weight, we still have many mixes and match colorways to meet your needs. The tail-like shape weight is one of my most satisfying design points. With the basic simple lines here and curved lines there, it adds more elegance to the overall design. In the internal structure, the sandwich isolating plate + fully customized gasket design is used.

we have prepared this kit for 1 year and today we present to you the big and final update for Primus.

I'm in. I've been wanting a 75% for a while and had my eye on the 7V but think I'd rather get this.  I've been looking for a board to put SA By The Sea on, I'm thinking E White top and cyan accent on the bottom, though I wonder how well the colors will match.

2. Can you run it on the 2nd week or last week of May?  :p

This looks fantastic. How would color picking / matching work? Would we have to buy base set kits, and add extras on top to get for example a yellow middle?

Yeah, it occurred to me that having an aluminium weight in an aluminium base seems a bit odd. You may as well save the machining and make a version without a weight at all.

Nice to see this coming along. I've been following this eagerly for a year. Now to decide which colors...

Any idea how much of a price increase there will be for the upgraded options (stainless steel weight, brass weight, brass plate)?
Maybe they're waiting for gasmasks and latex to get sexy again.

I got excited that we were getting a reborn and revised Nexus Slider.

Instead it's just another keyboard that's just slightly less boring than all the other keyboards this year.

Thanks for getting my hopes up with the name confusion...

Looks amazing, but it is running way too early for me :(

If the project finds itself in late May early June instead I'd be a happy man

Hi,

-Is it a hot-swappable keyboard? (can it be used straight out of the box without soldering etc.)

-Plate mount or PCB mount stabs?

How light/dark is the grey? The Pantone 432C seems musch lighter and cooler than the renders. Not sure if it would match with a keyset like GMK Lux, or black would be a better match?

"Weight available in aluminum, brass and Stainless Steel. (alum in anodized, brass in sandblasted+coated, ss in mirror polished)"

Aluminum weight is anodised and you can't anodise white.

Meh. Dawn is also 75 and not as big. There's a lot of factors here. The pedigree of designers of both the board and pcb are well established. The style is very organic compared to other boards. And few offer the available color combos or comboing colors at all. 75 is definitely a popular layout this year, but this board has a lot more going for it than just that.

OP is currently organizing another GB as well. I personally would rather have to wait another week for this one to start and have everything go smoothly, than just add extra stress for the organizers.

Wow! The prototypes look really great! Beautiful keyboards! Good job on the design!

EDIT: Can it do iso and 7u spacebar with the winkey version?

Hey! got a few Questions since i'm thinking about buying this Board which would be my first Custom.

- Does this Board work with PCB or Plate Mount Switches? I ordered Zilents and was about to clip them to fit my current Board. But i wont do that if this Board uses PCB Mount.

- How much weight does the Brass Weight add? Im not sure if i should pay the extra 75 if the difference is not really noticable.. how much does the Board weight with Standard Configuration?

- What about Keycap Size? How big is the Spacebar and the other Modifier?

Thanks alot! Looking forward to this GB.. would be my first after searching for a Board for Months now :)

I know, would still like to see actual photos vs. the renders if possible.

I'm sure you'd be able to compromise by looking at these two images, imagination is key !



Wonderful updates with the prototypes Louis! Very insightful seeing the colours and different plates  :-*

Hey everyone,

Primus is a 75% size customized keyboard kit. From the appearance, it has a perfectly symmetrical design. It adopts a mature standard primary key design and is available in WK or WKL in the top case. The bottom case partially covered by top case and weight, we still have many mixes and match colorways to meet your needs. The tail-like shape weight is one of my most satisfying design points. With the basic simple lines here and curved lines there, it adds more elegance to the overall design. In the internal structure, the sandwich isolating plate + fully customized gasket design is used.

we have prepared this kit for 1 year and today we present to you the big and final update for Primus.

Will you also add pricing on the configurator so we'll know how much our desired board (with the parts) will cost?

So I know the website shows all of the colors, but are these colors all applicable to any of the materials this comes in?

This might actually be my first 60> love the design cues on it, and the colors that I'd love on a keyb are easily done with this as well.

Any chance rose gold will be offered like shown in the GMK Olivia themed render? Was hoping that color would be an option and not the current hot pink offering.

Brass is brass, stainless steel is stainless steel, all the other colors are aluminum. Yellow and white are through electrophoresis, the others are anodized.

Hey Thesis, was there a proto done in the e-yellow at all? Or is it the same yellow as the kn2.10 for reference? Cheers

It would be great to be able to buy an additional top case. Would change the whole vibe of the keyboard without having to buy another full kit.

Sadly louis said, we won't be able to buy additional parts else than PCB and plates, because of boxing + shipping issues, sadly.

Thatís too bad... but I understand, the logistics would be much more complicated.

We're checking out a new supplier and will be comparing it to the KN2.

We color matched the KN2 e-yellow to the previous manufacturer's color after we switched factories (for the KN2) to be consistent with the early prototypes. For the Primus we're considering toning down the color, but like I said we haven't fully decided yet.

For reference, this has a brass weight and what looks to be a brass plate. So exceeding no more than 2475g roughly for an aluminum version. (Switches and stabs considered)
