Will the gaskets still work even the screws are directly connected with the plate and top case?

Such a cool project. I probably won't get one because I have already spent quite a bit of money on keyboards recently, but  it's definitely looking good. I usually don't like big bezel boards but the way you have designed it really pops. Good luck with the group buy and I will definitely pay attention to how it comes out.

This looks amazing. Reminds me of something RAMA would design. Any chance we could get a PC case and plate? Something like the M65 Ice would look amazing with the lines on this thing.

What is the estimated weight and typing angle?

Estimated weight is 1.5kg / 3.3lbs for all aluminium board unassembled.
We are looking into brass bases which would bring it to 2.5kg / 5.5lbs.

Typing angle is 7°.

same question...
top mount and gasket do not seem to work together... unless the gasket is here for a different purpose.


the thicc board looks nice though  :)

Yeah, we will recorrect this to top isolation mount. We were incorrect with gasket. From where we have worked, gasket was defined as a piece of rubber between two materials/surface. We are going to be testing with o-rings on the screws though.

I was interested until i saw the GB is only for 100 units, 150 if they are feeling frisky?  :))

Hey, who am i to complain. I just got into this hobby couple of months ago, i was just splurging on keebs, keycaps and switches until last week. But i'm still open to get a few more boards. I was shocked myself when i found out that i spent almost $2,000 in a month, for stuff i won't even get few months from now (GMK Keycaps will be 2021) LOL but hey i wanted to support the enthu that designs great stuff, not the flippers. And i wanted to buy more, i just started but people who get me into this saying that i already sank deep! LOL

So i hope Unlimited GB would be possible.

With the port so low in the renders, is there a USB-C daughterboard involved?

That is a real pity, the board has a true retro feel to it but without ISO it is a no go.  Good luck with the project.

Have you then allowed for the USB port to move with the gasketed PCB / plate? I guess there won’t be a lot of movement involved.

But with gaskets, I still prefer the USB daughterboard. I do realise it will be more expensive.

Whatever you decide, I’m still very interested. This board is a real looker.

agree! in a gasket mount board (without USB daughterboard), there should be some space for the USB port to flex. (even though the board would not flex that much when type normally)
if the cutout is too tight-fit, there is a stress on the USB port, which is not good. (ref: https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/h7gofy/polaris_owners_usb_port_stress/)

The daughter board isn't on any of the gaskets. It's completely separate and fits in the bezel at the back. There won't be any pressure on the USB port.

Sorry, we won't have this option. We are keeping price low by limiting layout options. We might do a R2 with a redesign and a different plate. I'd like to have a stepped caps lock :P We want to see how this goes first.

I was interested until i saw the GB is only for 100 units, 150 if they are feeling frisky?  :))

Hey, who am i to complain. I just got into this hobby couple of months ago, i was just splurging on keebs, keycaps and switches until last week. But i'm still open to get a few more boards. I was shocked myself when i found out that i spent almost $2,000 in a month, for stuff i won't even get few months from now (GMK Keycaps will be 2021) LOL but hey i wanted to support the enthu that designs great stuff, not the flippers. And i wanted to buy more, i just started but people who get me into this saying that i already sank deep! LOL

So i hope Unlimited GB would be possible.

Not 100% sure as of yet. Since we will now have vendor support we have less say in this.

I see, i do understand. I hope Ilumkb or ZF will handle Asia GB, because they accept credit cards. I showed this to my buddies, they are also interested, however, all of us don't have PayPal, as for me it's more like i cannot use PayPal, my account was hacked and PayPal has yet to reimburse the funds i left there, so i don't really feel safe using PayPal. I hope you consider us non paypal users as well.  ;D

Not the biggest fan of the thicc bezels but certainly interested for the prospect of getting a board with no shipping charge as a local. That would be different!

Also +1 for non-hotswap option.

We won't have a non-hotswap version this time around. Wilbas WT65-A will fit the case and layout though. You won't be able to screw it into the plate though, and it would just be held in by switches.

Question tho, usually there are different layout options for soldered version right? Since this is hot-swap version only, is it possible to have a stepped caps lock on this one? Still new don't know a lot of stuff.

You wouldn't be able to do different layouts. Our plate will only support one layout as it's meant for hot swaps. It's difficult to support multiple layouts with the hotswap sockets.

Woo that's cloooose! Excited! What will the final colors be?

I wanted to get the purple one. Only if the blue one is a bit lighter, like sky blue or light blue, that's what i'll get. But i really wanted to see the protos first before i decide. Sadly Grey isn't an option. That would be the safest pick.

Still waiting on the prototypes and colour samples to confirm. The new renders are roughly what it should look like when powder coated.

We will do all colours, but it will be likely anodized. The colour will not be exact to the references. The delays on the prototype are because the manufacturers trying to get the anodized colours close.

Have you confirmed any other PCB's that may work in the case? I'm fine with the PCB not being able to be screwed on, but would really prefer to have a soldered version with a different layout. Thank you!

EDIT: Just realized, probably not, as they'll need to be compatible with the Unified C3 Daughterboard.

So the WT-65A works. However you'd need a different plate. We won't be offering a plateless option at group buy. We will however be releasing files necessary to make your own plate compatible with the board.

The plate is going to have silicone washers and strips on either side of it. They're relatively soft at 40 Shore A hardness. The washers will be arriving this upcoming week so I hope to try it out then. PCBs are naturally more springy. I'm suspecting it will still be relatively stiff as the force from keystrokes is mostly on the plate. The early prototype had a hollow sound to it. With the redesign that's been eliminated. I'm not sure if that's because of the rubber strips or the changes to the inner cavity. Either way, much happier with it. PCBs should be arriving next week so I'll be able to test it properly then. The brass base also makes it sound a bit deeper, the aluminum base I'm still quite happy with. Bug me again this time next week ;)

Price seems great. Design looks right up my alley but for some reason I have hard time seeing how it is in real life. Something about the steep angles from the bezels. Anyway for now I'm definitely in for this.

So there are prototype photos of the board up. Alexotos, Logan (the other designer) and myself will all be doing separate build streams and sound tests. We will announce those when those dates are decided.

The PCB prototypes should be arriving tomorrow, so we plan to do another big update very soon!

Is the brass base as an option confirmed?

Strange to have all of that thickness and the keycaps still stick up over the top edge, exposing the switch housings underneath.  I would prefer to see the pcb/plate assembly lowered at least a milimeter to hide the switches.

We have some more brass prototypes coming in. Brass is pretty much confirmed. The finish for it isn't confirmed as of yet.

If you're looking at the renders it's because I'm lazy and the plate is mated to the case rather than to the silicone strips. If you're looking at the photos it's because the manufacturer messed up and everything was offset by .6mm. We were also testing some other tolerances with it. The final shouldn't have the switches visible. :thumb:

Toronto based designers? I have to join. I hope my wife follow the same thought process as me.

Hoping an Australian vendor specifically Switch Keys is possible!

They were all busy but since we are running into so many delays I'll see when they'll be available. Might be able to get something to work :D
