The gradient anodization has me thinking, how hard would it be to do a full rainbow gradient?

All the kits have been QCed and sent to zFrontier earlier this week. Some Chinese buyers have already received their boards. I don't know zFrontier's schedule on shipping international orders but it should be very soon.

I just got mine!  The yellow color looks really cool!  The only thing is that I'm pretty sure the order is partially wrong.  I thought it was not possible to get two different colors for the plate/weight.  I recieved a MAO plate (which I ordered) but then got a gold weight, when I thought it was also supposed to be MAO.  Here's a pic:



Is this an oversight on my part for missing an option or an error on Zfrontier's part?  Can it be fixed at all?  I definitely wanted weight in MAO white!


edit: this is what my order looked like

Isn't what I ordered the smaller text under each item?  "Yellow / MAO (white)" - I take that to mean "yellow case / MAO plate/weight"  IIRC there was no individual option for plate and weight, it was under one option together.  The extra item I got was an extra PCB.

Lol you should stop posting in threads you have no clue about. There were 2 options, one for case colour and one for plate/weight colour.

Gainsborough, you should send an email to zfrontier support, they should be able to help you out.

board came in. looks fantastic! weight fits a little loose but some tape will fix that. e-white feels kind of like a super smooth cerakoted board. love it

ordered fixed plates, didn't know universal would also be included, so now i have 4 plates and 2 pcbs lol.  anyone know the size of the rubber bumpon feet? i didn't receive any.







can't wait to get it built.

Bumpons measure 10mm. They are black anyway so you'll wanna get some clear ones on that white board.

My board came in today too, it's flawless really, CNC and anodising is amazing. Only issue is a small scratch on the brass bottom leaf. That and the weight is mounted with pan head screws when the weight itself is countersunk.

Yeah I see now, the CNC on the alu weight is not as nice as the brass (aside from the mark).

Have to admit I'm a little disappointed in the "green" it's definitely cyan or seafoam green at best in the daylight.. was definitely hoping for a bit more green in there vs bright blue...

Did you get Mao or electro? I got the same config and noticed that too but I don't think it's that bad since most of it isn't visable

Senter speaks fluent English and I suspect fluent Chinese too, I doubt it. Just seems like an unfortunate case of mismatched colours in production or just a photo that didn't represent what he had in his head.

there's no word for teal in chinese as far as i know, i've seen it written with the same word as green a few times

then again my chinese isn't super great so i could be totally wrong

I must admit the green plates have a little color difference compared with the other green parts. Light colors except silver are always difficult to be accurate, especially on the thin plates.

Here are some comparisons between the green plate and other green parts. Apparently, the plate is a little lighter but not terribly imo. The color of other green parts should be pretty much the same as the prototype I showed before.

Thanks Blue, I always thought my English is terrible. The language barrier does exist but I think it's not the case. It's more like a culture difference. In Chinese, there's a lack of formal color names. I'm learning all kinds of stuff in English but I'm not sure if I can make it right everytime.

Hi Puddsy. The teal color can be called Tiffany color in Chinese because Tiffany used it a lot. Some people know it, some don't. Your point stands I think. The green color provided in this GB was called "Green". My understanding is that it means all possible shades of green. I provided color samples in OP and that's the shade of green provided.  Unfortunately, the green plates are little lighter as I said. I'm sorry about that.

Got my board in today. E-black with MAO plate/leaf looks incredible.

Any possibility of selling extra parts? I think I want an extra PCB + ALPs plate, and I'm dumb for not ordering them before.

Would definitely love a chance at some extra parts (PCB, plates, etc)!

List of leftovers:
  • e-white WKL kit * 3
  • e-black WKL kit * 1
  • e-white WK kit * 1
  • Aluminum plates and weight in all colors. number is limited.
  • Several brass APLS plates

All parts are FCFS. PM me if you're interested.

Edit: I'm on a travel and will be available to reply PMs tomorrow.
