Hi, I'm interested in the polycarbonate singa. Any chance there are images of the completed product? :D Thanks again!

I am also interested in details about the Polycarb version. Website says it will go live in beginning of May, but no pictures or details. Is this a full case/kit or is it replacement pieces for people who already have Singa? Is it already being sold or is it a separate groupbuy?

I believe the ones that will be for sale are the extras

Yeah, they are extras. The PC is the R2 design with brass plate/weight/lion. It is a whole kit, not just a shell.

(Attachment Link) (Attachment Link)

Thought it was sold out when I went to check-out (wallet_saved.gif)... turned out catweewee was updating the site and it was a glitch.

I am now very much looking forward to the arrival of my Polycarb version with brass/brass! (wallet_cries.gif)

Iím pretty sure when they were listed was when she was converting the existing orders from PayPal invoices. If I remember right tho there are still like 10 extras, or were, I donít actually know if they sold yet or not.

Anyway:

RE: Polycarb "Extras" - Are these already made or going through same manufacturing/production timeline as the metal R2? If the polycarbs are already in hand, will they be shipping soon? I am excite  :D

I did it on a R1 Singa build, and I would not recommend. It's a big pain.

Did the PC extras already go live? Still not sure if I completely missed it, lol...

I believe they are gone by now, I bought last week but they are marked sold-out now.

Man, that poly Singa looks amazing, glad I jumped on it as well. Interesting to see that it follows the new redesigned weight of R2, but is still brass.

I wanted the PC brass weight to swap with my regular r2 weight :rip: I guess it's ok though saved a few bones but I was checking the site constantly or thought I was :tooslow: =P

OMG please stop, I can only get so erect excited for my polycarb Singa to arrive!

Are you just showing off samples/prototypes or are these already manufactured and shipping earlier than the metal R2?

Any updates on Polycarbs shipping? I think I heard they're going out in order of invoice #, but that doesn't give me any real context  :llama:

No real insight into how they're going out. catweewee mentioned in the mechkeys discord that they would start shipping this past Monday.

A few others and I have received tracking and mine (at least) should arrive at my apartment tomorrow. You will receive an email from Aramex when it has been picked up in Malaysia. Also if you are located in the United States, I'd highly recommend signing up for UPS My Choice as that was the only way I found out the package from Aramex had been handed off to UPS.

That is a real pro-tip there, and fortunately have been enrolled with it for a while and it's saved my ass when packages show up early or unanticipated and sketchy weather or don't want to leave it out for porch thieves!

The Tangerines pre-modification are actually pretty nice! The springs are a bit iffy and I noticed some (not all) pinging a bit in a similar fashion to Zeal springs. Of course this is easily remedied by using different springs, and what other build is more appropriate for catweewee springs than a catweewee board!

Post-modification, with the thick 205g0, gives the switch a really satisfying buttery feeling and combined with the thock from the polycarbonate, it amounts to a really satisfying experience. I had been advised prior to lubing to only do the stem in a thin layer as it will naturally distribute through contact where you'd want the lube to go and I did not put anything on the springs.

All in all it was great to get back into the groove of building. 10/10 would build again.

This might be a long shot, but can you share the plate file? Would love to order a single-layout PC plate for this baby, for the ultimate build ;p

Also, which underglow RGBs should I buy?

In other news, I just finished porting my Singa to QMK and submitted my PR. It should be in the repo and configuration in a few days :D

I setup all the normal layout I could think of as well as one that SHOULD have all the keys available for like split spacebar and iso and other weird things people do. Once it's completed I'll post a link.

Once my code is merged it should be available in the configurator at: https://config.qmk.fm/#/singa/LAYOUT_wkl

You just use this to flash it (with windows anyway): https://github.com/robertgzr/bootloadHID/blob/master/commandline/bootloadHID.exe

To get into bootloader mode or w/e just hold esc while you plug the keyboard in.

The repo itself will be: https://github.com/qmk/qmk_firmware/tree/master/keyboards/singa

But first the PR needs to get approved/merged.

Ok, it's in the configurator now:



I made a few mistakes on the layout file for the split layouts, so right now they look like this:



But I have already corrected the issue so sometime later today or tomorrow or something it should show up like this:



If you are trying to do iso or split spacebar right now you just have to use the default keymap which has ALL the different slots open. I'm not actually sure how to setup iso in the configurator ux, but I can add other layouts if there is anything people care about. I tried to get all the obvious ones, but I just have WKL so I only have one option and was pretty much guessing.

If anyone has any issues let me know.

To use the bootloaderHID thing you just run a command like this (in windows):

.\bootloadHID.exe -r .\singa_amnesia0287.hex
