Hello guys, it's been long since I gave an update to this thread. As some of you may know, I am facing some major changes in my life and don't have quite enough room for running group buys on my on.
So I've been talking with mykeyboard.eu for a while for them being the vendor of upcoming UD projects, and now the UD_40 seems to be ready to proceed! Further details will be announced by a separate thread created by mykeyboard, and I will link it here as soon as it is posted.
+ UD_70's timeline should be decided as soon as things are scheduled with mykeyboard, so please wait for the update on that as well. Thank you everyone for the support, have a good one!


---------------------------------------
Hi, I am Goldworms from Korea.
I'd like to show you the board that I designed and start an IC thread for it.
Let me introduce you to UD_40, a 40% layout keyboard.
GB has already begun and it's accepting forms in Korea.

Looks nice, but too mucho for my wallet. I would especially have a hard time to stomach that shipping is 25% of base cost...

The Planck pcb is not compatible.
The reason is that the standard PCB (19.05mm) and Planck pcb (19mm) have different switch distances.

It is right that the shipping fee is expensive. I have not yet verified the correct shipping cost at the post office.
UD_40 is light in weight and small in packaging volume, Much will change in my proposed shipping cost.

one of the better 40% designs i've seen actually

this is nice

mechmini pcb I can not check the information, but it seems to be compatible with the bolt hole location of the published PCB picture. But I can not say that it is an exact match.

Well PCB-wise, if you have a spare or want to desolder:
  • Mechmini 2 - yes. It's identical to the NIU mini PCB this is designed for.
  • Mechmini RGB - possibly not. This is the same thing but with USB-C, which it looks like the port on this case is too narrow for.
  • OG Mechmini - no, obviously.

I am going to visit the post office for accurate weighing tomorrow, and the case weighs 455grams with all polycarbonate.
On Friday you will be able to update the shipping cost.

I really like this board. If only there were an all black case with black plate option. With the current silver case I can get it cerakoted, but that would add onto the already high cost. Very nice design! I'll have to think about it.

It is already manufactured PCB, usb-c connector can not be applied. I'm sorry.

What is the measurements of the port hole? If it is wide enough, it might be able to fit the new type-C mechmini pcb

The connector port size is wide enough.

I will definitely be keeping my eye on this one. And hearing that there will be more color options come GB time is very exciting as well. Having USB-C would also be cool but if not then it isn't a deal breaker for me.

What is the measurement for the actual hole? Type C is a few mm wider than b-mini and judging by the image, the b-mini fits very snugly

What do you mean? The numbers on the image are the measurements for the hole. The width of the mini-b connector you've put in red should be 6.8mm (vs 8.25mm for type c).

There would only be potential issues if the port is too recessed into the hole - an 11mm gap is pretty tight for the overmoulding around the connectors on type c cables. I just measured the two I had on my desk and it's 50:50 on whether they would fit.

Ah. my bad. I mistook the diagram for something like this where the port hole was recessed into another hole

There is enough free space where the usb connector is attached.

Dreaming about purchasing this UD_40, putting GMK 9009 keycaps on it, adding the GMK Korean Beige Add-On Kit, then having a perfect ode to Koreans & their amazing culture.

To do USB-C, does the UD_40 pcb need to come with it already installed? From what I understand, USB-C is not a straightforward swap.

Based on the first post in this thread, I was assuming a Korean group buy would happen first, then the International group buy would open up later, which would let US people purchase as well. But I might have it wrong.

Korean GB took place before, the international group buy is now ready to happen as updated. Stay tuned!

Hi! So I came up upon this thread a while after this original post was made, and I was wondering if this kit was still being made? If so where?

I also wanted to ask if you would be selling any of the products separately ?

Thank you for consideration of my question

PS. I found this post through insta and what drew me in was the Apple Pencil in the space. Can that little space charge the pencil too?
