any reason why the badge would not be flush with the right-most keys like the original design? I don't think I can get over the badge or where it is unfortunately. GLWGB

Hmmm... that's actually a good question.  I see no reason why it wouldn't be right aligned to the edge of the keycaps. Weird

BTW, that new render looks awesome.  Would that be a silver or gray base?

Thanks. I'm not good at rendering. Credit goes to Trianglelab. It's a gray base in the render.

Yeah, the position of the sticker can be a problem. Originally that should be a sticker so there are no such problems. I tried to add the sticker to different positions and finally put it there.
I won't persist if someone believes it's better the badge is aligned to the right edge of the keycaps. What do you think?

I vote for the alignment. And I think the badge could go in the middle(or a bit higher) between the top edge of top case and keycaps, similar but not exactly like the vintage keyboard:

Thanks for the suggestions. The original idea of this case was to match Dasher/Dancer keyset. I'm also curious what color people will choose and what keysets they will match. There are infinite possibilities as I'm offering fully custom colors.

I gotta tell you, now that I've seen MiTo's Ares Godspeed MT3 keyset that is in the works, I'm seriously thinking about a White and Orange Modern Dasher to go with it...

Is it too much trouble to move the sticker on your prototype?  If we could see side by side it would be a better way to judge.









Which position is better?

Good idea.

Yellow top and white bottom might also be cool.

Alright, the badge will be right aligned with the edge of the keycaps if there's no opposition.

Hi all. Most of the boards have been finished, QCed, and packaged.
Please pay your shipping invoice asap so we can ship the boards to your hands.

Just got my shipping invoice received and paid.  I was surprised to get it, I wasn't expecting this board finished so soon! 
Can't wait to get my hands on it and see it in person! 

Those boxes look similar in style to the ones that the S7 Elephant came in, which I'm happy to see.  It held up nicely in shipping. 
The ALF X3 Renova had a neat box design, but for some reason it didn't hold up well through international shipping. 
I've found I've gotten a little paranoid about the safety of these babies as they make their long journey...

Received mine, very, very beautiful. The white is awesome.

BUT for all of you, who plan to use the stand-offs. They are of very poor quality. Material is way too soft. The thread is filled with paint and/or are too small. Sheared off 3 stand-offs so far. Even after using another screw to redo the threading. Sad to see such a nice case ruined by cheap stand-offs. :-(

"Stand-offs":


Update: They are also very short, at least none of my screws from other cases fit without washers.

Well, that is unfortunate, but you can buy more standoffs easily.  Are they m2 or m3? 

Your comment about the holes being filled with gunk reminds me of the problem with xondat's 268 board.  It was a huge issue.  The anodization manuf. sandblasted and didn't clean out the holes before anodizing.  It left sand in the screw holes.  You can soak it in water and try to clean it out with a small wire tip brush.  If that won't work, and you have sheered off screws (as you do here) you can retap the hole.  If it's a m2 thread, you can buy an m3 tap and just use m3 standoffs.  Of course, I'm not sure if m3 go through standard pcbs :(   I guess they make m3 male to m2 female, they are just harder to find.

i'm guessing that the standoffs are used for top mounted plates--i.e. not the included plate?  if someone figures out the right threading could they share, then we can get the right tap to chase the threads before trying to mount the standoffs.

just got mine and only have a few minutes to look at it.  i have mixed feelings, overall its pretty solid, but there are a few details that are different or were unknown during the GB:

-my logo is metal and engraved, but its only a single color white, its not colored at all, i think the sticker actually looked better!
-the finish on the brass weight looks very different to me than the samples, its more of a matte brushed, i was not expecting polished but this has more texture to it
-the daughter board thing always confused me but i understand now that i have it, the PCB does have a usb-c port on it, but since there is such a large bezel, the port on the PCB (either included or GH60) requires you to have a pigtail from the daughterboard to the PCB of your choice.  i don't mind this, but it wouldve been nice to have additional daughterboards available, since it only comes with one i'm locked in based on which PCB i want to use

i'll hold off final judgement until i have more time to look at it and get it built, would appreciate other peoples thoughts as they receive theirs.

would also appreciate if someone takes pictures or provide diagram for soldering the breakout board, the board is labeled but i'm always not sure when soldering the connecters....

I just got mine aswell and Overall the quality is pretty good. The only thing that threw me off was the weight. It was advertised as being around 4kg but mine comes out to just over 3kg ish. Im guessing the extra kilo comes from the plate made for the board. Wish that was better explained.

Here are some pics of my board. The stand offs are not pre inserted for the breakout board. I also had a small scratch around the edge of the bottom near the foot. There is also some visible banding around the corners when in certain light. As I've stated before my board doesn't weigh around 4kg and more around 3kg. I'm guessing this is because I didn't opt for the plates.

The quality of the product is very low.
It is too fragile and easily breakable.
Stand-bolts break even I didn't put much strength on them to screw.
I don't know what to do with them any more...
I wonder if there is a discord for D60.
If anyone knows the address, please please let me know!!!!
