Whats the final estimate price for classic?

The final and detailed pricing will be released soon. However, I am sad to say after factoring all the costs, it will be higher than what I originally estimated.

These look amazing!
Would be very interested in peaks and an RBG strip!
Some of the pics show a rose gold champagne colour, if that was available, it would be an instant buy for me.
Love your work.

Thank you! Yes I will offer rose gold for the top pieces

That's awesome, can't wait. I assume the base colours will be black and white?

Yes Black or White for the case

Looks interesting ;) Any information on layout support?

This will not come with a PCB, so you can have any layout as long as it's on a 60% PCB. I will also have blockers for WKL(1u*2) and HHKB(1.5u*2 and 2.5u*1) available.

Oops, my bad. I didn't see that it was a tray-mount case. Thanks for the info!

How much higher are we looking at here?

It's tray mount. You have to source your own plate + pcb.

Do we have to hand-wire the module if we choose the "PRESS" option?

NO, you don't need to hand wire it. PCB and cable are provided, all you need is to plug it into the hub.

Simple question - how does the plate fit in the case ?
Another person already asked this, and got an answer that its a standard 60% plate can be used and its tray mount. Thats great, my question is how exactly does it fit ?
As in, does one lower the pcb and plat directly from the top ? the bottom chassis seems to be a single piece ?
Also is the left and right side of the chassis hollow ?

The switches are secured by the plate and the plate is secured by the switches too :) The 4 sides of the plate should be flush with the PCB, so you could simply put the assembled PCB and Plate into the chassis and then secure the PCB from moving by screws.

And no, the left and right sides of the chassis are solid.

Hope this answers your question.

The modules are secured by screws drilling from the bottom of the chassis.

To change them, you will need to unscrew (and unplug the internal connection for FLASH or PRESS) and screw them back in.

Perfect ! thank you !
I got in for a white powder coated chassis with a black classic and a purple 'peaks' modules.
Looking forward to this !!!

Had momentary shock the other day when I received a shipping notice from zFrontier that claimed it contained both my Leaf and grid in the same shipment, which I didn't think was possible. Package arrived today and, of course, it contained only the Leaf. Makes sense, but :'(

The shipping will happen between Dec 2018 and Jan 2019. We are pushing our vendor but quality is the first concern.

I'm increasingly worried that the thing won't ever ship, let alone that we'll get refunds.
