Hey guys!

The fabulous GH mod team finally approved the post = )

We've got a few days left however, in spite of this thread taking a while to get out into the wild I think I'm going to be adding a week onto the group buy so everyone can make sure they get their mechmini 2!

We're sitting at a wonderful 40 orders so far, and there are some awesome giveaways @ 50 orders. I hope someone wins a SA hyperfuse set =)

Thanks for looking!

Can you share what the custom MM2 layout looks like?  Thanks!

I remember one of the old teaser renders showing an ortho layout with a full 1u grid, but the image above suggests the plate isn't compatible for that. Can you confirm if this is the case?

The ortho plate will allow 100% 1U coverage. Prototype plate was created just a few MM's too narrow.

2 Days left to place an order. We've passed 50 orders - SA Hyperfuse will be given away to one lucky buyer.

There will also be no round two for this keyboard, what gets made now is all that will ever be made.

Unfortunately not of the mechmini 2 - however there are some all over google for mechmini 1 - which is identically the same layout.

Do you have any more pictures of some of the cases with different finishes?
