I'm a bit confused ,

The GB is over but on your site it's still possible to order the Acrylic Aluminum kit ? (https://www.luminakb.com/product-page/acrylic-aluminum)

It even states (when checking out) delivery to belgium is free?

Thank you for your reply

Well I'm speaking on his behalf, you can still purchase a board.

He has extra material to order/make more.

I ordered an extra plate and base several weeks ago. Can they be shipped together with my original order to save on shipping?

Absolutely. If you could send me an email with your order numbers, I can check to see if I need to reimburse you for extra shipping paid. By Default, orders going to the same address will be shipped together.

Hey @GreenwaldDesigns, is the luminakb@gmail.com email valid?

Just now realized that I got no response for an email I sent at September 19 asking for an important shipping address change in my order

Your address change has been recorded. That email was used for the website, so I had not seen it, but I checked it now, and have recorded the address change.

This is pretty standard practice for group buys. If you want to keep your finger on the pulse of the GB, then instead of being salty, join all the proper outlets and pay attention. There's almost always info in discord on GBs which isn't shared elsewhere.

Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I think it only professional to keep communication announcements flowing in all places where the group buy ran.   Not everyone accesses all forms of social media, hence the reason why for announcing the group buy in multiple locations in the first place. 
I know I certainly don't want to go to 2 or 3 different places just to keep up one one single project.

Holidays have pushed some things back a little but, but as far as January shipping, it is still accurate. Currently doing QC on all the PCBs and taking the necessary steps to get them into the Via Configurator. Additionally, the Lumina plates will be shipped to me shortly.


Acrylic plates and bases are also in production now as well, and will be done fairly soon.

Seems like another GB where updates need to be yanked out of the organizers. Looking at the M60 thread with envy. Hope this isn’t representative of the final product.

My apologies for the lack of updates the last couple of weeks. Turns out working with manufacturers sometimes can be infuriatingly slow, and I have been pushing various places for orders.

However, I can give you an update on plates, all of which have been ordered and are being made. This includes the brass, aluminum, and acrylic plates, as well as the acrylic bases for the Lumina.



In addition, the Waldo PCB code is being reviewed right now, and updated in accordance to the QMK Config Guidelines, and simultaneously being prepped for VIA Configurator integration. There will be also Extra stock available of the Waldo pcbs, if anyone needs/wants them, at a later date.

Machining of the Corian pieces and Metal bases is underway as well, and I hope I can push the  manu to set up a time for me to go and get progress photos for everyone. Machining is taking quite a bit longer than I had hope, as the number of orders we have gotten for this group buy far exceeded what we were anticipating would happen(future group buys will be run differently/potentially limited for my sanities sake), as we hit just over 120 orders total.


Again apologies for the lack of communication the last couple weeks, and thank you for being patient.


Here is a photo of the Acrylic Plates, the rest of the batch will be arriving shortly, and I will post a picture of the entire order of acrylic plates when they arrive: https://imgur.com/j44MjC1

In addition, as soon as possible, I will post high res photos of the Lumina in other material color choices.

no, they are just old renders, all bases are 7 degrees
