Light pads would be good, or just the specs on how to have them cut. I met some guys that cut acrylic and they may be able to hook me up.

I would really love to have one of these. Layout seems perfect for me. Count me very much in for next time.

Are there any significant number of people that are interested in another round of V2? I was debating getting in on the Octagon buy... but I'd much much rather have a Lightsaver for the money -- it's just so unique/different. I already have a few 75% boards... I just wanted one with an aluminum case... but the Lightsaver... that's just.... yeah. Maybe I should hold out and pray for a lightsaver buy to come around...

If you read a couple posts back, there are tons of people interested and the plan is to start another interest check right around the end of winter so that we can have a spring group buy for the lightsaver v2. That is assuming that a v3 doesn't come out before then. The number of people we need is around 30, and that is to actually buy in, not just interest.

That sounds amazing! Thank you btw. I must have missed that, I did go through and read the thread before posting, but probably didn't see that part.

I'll probably hold off on the Octagon and then get in on the Lightsaver properly :D awesome I'm excited that there's a chance of this happening again. These Duck buys have seemed to have a really good success rate and turnover time, so I'm really stoked at the reality of getting one.

BTW for the octagon and for any of the duck buys in the past, when they do group buys, are the cases available to buy separately?

Personally I would pass on the Octagon in favor of a light saver. It is just so much more unique!

Yeah, thats exactly why. I have an MX-Mini, and GON just put out his NERD MX-Mini which I'm wanting for the Nerdy GUI support... on top of that, I still have a Keycool84 w/browns around as as backup/lender, so already gonna have enough 75% boards... can't really justify the cost -- especially when you factor in that without stabilizers, you're gonna have to order them shipped expensive from GON or imsto or someone. ...

Had the MX-Minis not been available, I may have considered going out on a limb for it because I do love the 75% layout (possibly my favorite layout?) but the Lightsaver is so unique and there's so many possibilities with it. It's a gorgeous board and there's just nothing like it out there. I would definitely love to add one to my collection. Once "all the smoke settles" I think that's one of the boards I'd like to still be owning. That and some kind of mx-mini.

BTW, do you know the name of this layout?
I love it but have never seen it on another keyboard before. It's like a 75% without the F-row, and then one more column of keys on the left. Which is perfect. I don't use the F-row enough to warrant dedicating keys to it. Fn+Number row is adequate for my usage. The Leopold 660m/c almost hit the nail on the head for me, except ins and delete are the two least used keys from the formatting cluster I use. I do a lot of text editing so home/end are essential to me, and page up and down are very nice to have. I've yet to see that floating around here.

Looks a lot like this board. The Smart 68 layout. But it lacks the extra left row. You could ask the girl in the video. ;)

EDIT: Also looks similar to the EQ-22MX AMB Acrylic Custom Keyboard

My best guess is, especially because of the blocker in the top-left corner, that it's a custom custom Korean board. :P

I'm trying my hand at programming my Orion at the moment... but I am failing hard. And since the Lightsaver uses the same software I thought I'd ask here.

Using the O2D keymapper I figured out where the flip key is but I have been unable to do any programming. Seriously no idea how.
I believe TrueCustom was working on a proper translation?

I believe TrueCustom was working on a proper translation?

basic steps when i did it on my eagle / viper:

1. make your layout in 02D and save a hex file (windows region needs to be set to Korean to program arrows and some led functions)
2. hold down the flip or bootloader key while you plug in your keyboard (keys will not function if correctly in bootloader mode)
3. go into device manager and find your keyboard (will have an exclamation mark) and update the driver. (the driver should be in your one of your flip or other avr folders. if there's no devices that need drivers you might already have it installed but make sure you look around)
4. open flip, File - Load HEX File (load the one you created)
5. Select Target Device (ATmega32u4), Select a Communication Medium (usb) *if it can't find the kb, you didn't do step 3 correctly*
6. make sure everything is checked in the Operations Flow and click Run (if flip gets stuck after Blank Check and doesn't program, you might need to reload the hex file, this part is clumsy. play order until it works)
7. after programming is successful, make sure the Reset box in the bottom right is checked and hit Start Application to reboot your kb

everything should be good to go after that.

good luck!

Out of curiosity How are you guys affixing the acrylics to the case?
I have a couple of pairs so I'm looking for a semi permanent solution. (Going to try sanding a pair to get that diffused look)

Do you think that the v3 will support ALPS? I would totally be down for that.

Well, you are in luck since I decided to make a simple guide using my Orion.

Ingredients:
- Chef's hat
- A flat surface
- A thin clear double sided tape (I used Scotch 3M photo & document tape)
- 400 (or lower) Grit sandpaper (I prefer the waterproof version for less dust and a smoother finish. The coarser the grit, or the lower the grit number, the more diffused the look.)
- Painters tape (to hold everything in place
- Water & paper towel (for cleaning in between sanding and/or to put on the sandpaper)

#1
Attach everything to the surface you will be working on.

The piece in the middle is the sandpaper.

#2
Prepare your acrylic pieces

Clean them first and remove the protective tape on the sides.

#3
Start sanding

Sand using a light pressure and preferably using a circular motion. You will notice that the larger area will take the most time because it takes a while to completely flatten it.
If you are using a lower/rougher grit (let's say all you can get is grit 100) end by making a side by side movement to align the scratches in the material. You won't notice them when they are mounted but we want some quality on these high end keyboards don't we?


Keep going


Sides as well


Things are getting messy with the water but it actually aids in achieving a smooth finish

#4
Clean up.

Just make sure you wash your sanded pieces under some running water to get rid of all the dust you will have created. Maybe use a bit of dish soap to get rid of any grease so it attaches properly

#5
Stick it in


Clean the underside and remove those greasy fingerprints


Cut the double sided tape to size and stick it on (This is actually the most annoying part)


Remove the protective sheet


Stick on the acrylic pieces. Angle them outwards to line them up then fold inwards


Voilá

End results


No inserts

Like an alien spacecraft, all you can see is the two lights

Clear inserts

Not bad. The edges of the acrylic have a nice glow but except for that they might as well not be here

Frosted inserts

There we go! As you can see it really helps in the diffusion of light

Other thoughts
A creative person might be able to customize this further by leaving one side clear and etching their name or logo on the other side of the inserts. Just sand the top and sides as you would in any other case. This could probably give some pretty cool effects.


Oh, and want to know what kind of complicated setup I used for making these pictures?  ;)
More



All you need is some good light, a camera that has the possibility to manually focus and a small table tripod. I am using a Trektech T'Pod because I once bought it for cheap and it is sturdy and stable enough to easily adjust or disassemble for a completely different angle. Some creative angling with a $3 tripod from e-Bay can work as well.

Most of these pictures were taken at exposure times of 1.6 to 5 seconds so a tripod is necessary. Just put it on 2-second self-timer mode and click away.

Does anyone know if there was ever any discussion about moving the numpad area over to the left on these boards, or any other Korean custom? I mean an alternate PCB.

I think the Chinese Red Scarf II 77 might be able to do this.

You'll have to dig through TaoBao for this PCB though but I think I saw somewhere that you can detach the right side numpad and solder/join it to the left side of the PCB (which would imply there are connection points on the left side of the PCB).

My memory COULD be failing me at the moment but it's work a look IMO.

Thanks! Seems that there were a few interested in that idea and asked qtan to get some. Not sure what happened next but the thread fizzled out. Maybe they are enjoying their flipped boards in secret.

Only problem is, if you swap the numpad to the left, you'll most likely be limited to acrylic cases (you would probably have to design and laser cut your own).

You need to make a dummy hex file in the o2d folder for it to save, so just do new text file, rename it lightsaver.hex and it will let you save.

Random question, does anyone know if there were any differences between the V1 and V2 cases?

I would be interested in a black one. Post pictures if you can!

The V2 case has ledges on the sides while the V1 is flat.

This is the V1 https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7374/12805036093_bcf54ed34b.jpg

and this is the V2 http://cfile21.uf.tistory.com/image/271D2C3A53D8EBB52797FC
People in the 1980s, in general, were clearly just better than we are now in every measurable way.

I wish I could help you but I have no idea. I thought I'd reply to let you know your cries aren't going unheard, just unanswered.

Awesome, that's great news.

Hey I have a bit of a silly question.  Is it possible to arrange the lightsaver in the ISO layout? So far I have only seen it in ANSI. I use ISO and I would be ready to take the plunge for ANSI if ISO is impossible. In fact I might buy one of the ANSI PBT round 4 sets by Ivan that are about to close, in anticipation of using a future lightsaver. If iso is possible though... I would probably stick to it for the sake of the other family members using the keyboard.

i'm not sure if this has been answered yet among the 37 pages of comments but would it be possible to place the numpad on the left?

No it is not. The Redscarf3 has solder points to place the numpad on the left.

Does anybody have some spare Duck Blockers that they're willing to part with?  I'm looking for 5 of either the silver or black, or a combination of silver and black.  ;D

   Thought I'd ask around for spares first before going to elton with my tail between my legs.

I don't think lightsaver can do ISO, RedScarf3 is the same layout but can do iso.
