Hello everyone, this is NESON DESIGN Studio.

Here is the link to the IC post for The 810E Series keyboard:
Let me briefly introduce the differences between Ver.3 and Ver.2:
1.We have added a design feature called "force break" to the keyboard casing. "Force break" is a "Mod" technique that has enjoyed widespread use among keyboard enthusiasts worldwide for an extended period. We've integrated the principles of this method and redesigned it in a way that better suits fulfills our needs and achieves optimizations.
Note: The force break principle fundamentally alters the transmission path of vibrations within the keyboard casing, influencing the damping along this path and thereby allowing for precise adjustments to the acoustic performance of the casing.
2.We've implemented adjustments to the acrylic diffuser's dimensions at the rear end. Specifically, we've expanded the width on both the left and right sides by 0.8mm, resulting in an improved overall visual aesthetic.
3.We've added a 2mm plate light-blocking sticker to address the minor light leakage issue from the front.

Exploded View

·Keyboard Kit(Aluminum top case, aluminum mid-frame, aluminum bottom case, Electroplated stainless steel mirror badge, diffuser plate, aluminum internal and external weight) × 1
·Light-blocking Cover × 1
·Aluminum plate × 1
·1.6MM Hotswap / Soldered PCB (choose one) and separate RGB USB-C daughterboard × 1
·Spacebar support foam (PORON) × 1
·Diffuser plates for the light strip (internal and external acrylic) × 1
·30 degree hardness C-shaped Gaskets × 8
·3.5MM PORON foam × 1
·1MM case foam × 1
·6-pin connecting cable × 1
·Bumpons × 2
·User manual × 1

Because of the reduced front height in the structure, incorporating multiple compatible layouts in the spacebar row is not feasible. Consequently, the ultimate decision is to adopt the following fixed layout, which is compatible with both HHKB and WK configurations.

Badge options
(Choose one from the two, no additional purchases are allowed)
Option A: The diffuser is relatively luminous, and when observed from a seated position, it presents noticeable brightness in both side and top views.
Option B: The diffuser is relatively subdued because the illumination emanates from the sides. Consequently, when viewed from a top-down angle, the lighting might seem dim, but it imparts a more pronounced ambiance.

Internal weight color option
Black or Silver

External weight upgrade option
Standard black aluminum external weight (Default)
Upgrade to Black Electroplated Stainless Steel Brushed Weight: +45$
Upgrade to Black Electroplated Stainless Steel Mirror Weight: +80$

Approved :thumb:

PSA to prospective buyers:
Group Buys are inherently risky endeavors. There is an element of risk involved with collecting payment before the item has been produced and resulting uncertainty during manufacturing / subsequent operations. We urge all GB organizers to consider (and document) these risks, and want to make it clear to all who consider purchasing that these risks are present.

If you are unfamiliar with the Group Buy model, please read this primer - Group Buy FAQ / Buying Guidelines

This PSA is new and will become standard on all Group Buys moving forward. It is not posted on this GB in isolation and is not singling this organizer out in particular as someone to be wary of.

Any reason the solder PCB does not allow a split + key?

This very honestly might be my exit in the hobby in the best way possible :). A while back I sketched up my perfect board which is a resign/recreation of the old TRS-80 MODEL 3 board (basically.HHKB with a numpad) and this just checks every single box. Worth waiting for :)
