I always want to create something new to this community, something more user friendly for the group-buy.
We have worked on it a few months ago and today we want to present it to you:

(Currently, this website is supporting China Primus GB, so all the titles are in Chinese)
Damn, this is fun to play with. Good job! So many cool combinations I like. This will be hard to decide.

This is brilliant! I have been trying to decide on color the past few days. This will help a lot!

How much weight if fully build with brass plate and brass weight?
Yeah can we get some weight information based on the different weight materials, and if possible plate materials :)

I think I decided on white/white with a stainless weight. Wish there was a stainless plate to match though.

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?

This is going to hit my biggest weakness. The inability to make a decision when given too many options. I'm loving so many of the combinations.

It may have been covered but is there any reason the weight can't be white? It would really clean up my colour combo if it was and isn't an option in the colour picker

"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.

The format is pretty uncommon. Mainly boards tends to be 40, 60, 65 % and tkl. This is why people are pretty hyped about it

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.

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 :)

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.
