Q&A
Where is the LED indicators?
A: I have changed it to invisible micro holes, details: https://imgur.com/a/J7XYOFg

What Gasket we can use?
A: We will provide a set of gaskets for you, but you also can buy whatever gasket, silicon, rubber stripes with the same size we provided. It is not hard to find from the market. (Considered the gasket aging problem in, we have chosen the popular types of gasket instead of customized gasket)

How can I get the PC or brass during the google form GB?
Updates:edit on 7th March
A:many ppl are confusing about the previous solution. I have discussed with many users in my discord server, and here is the new solution: GB will be 2 different timing, same day(9th March)but 1 hour difference. First one will be PC/brass version, second one will be alum version). I will announce the PC/Brass winner few minutes after PC/Brass GB has finished, so all the participants will know whether you get in or out. Good Luck for everyone!

More
(Here is my solution: FSFC is the baseline, 75+10+5 is 90 pieces, if you are in first 90 orders, you can get the ticket(at least a set of alum kit, because I have alum MOQ and I can't give all of your PC or Brass, if I don't hit Alum MOQ, I am in trouble and I can't answer to factory, hope you can understand). So after choosing your first alum set, you can move to section 2 which is  PC or Brass or None.
At here, at least, you get an alum set.
Second, you can pick PC/Brass/None. It will be a multiple choice.
if you are fast enough(at first 10 PC picker or 5 Brass picker), You can buy (alum + PC, 2 sets) or (alum + brass,  2 sets) or give up your alum kit(Kit will give to No.91 buyer) and just take PC/brass.)





Working hard during this half a year for a project, now I am ready! Are you?
Thanks

More about weight design
one-off weight design render: https://imgur.com/66Ezg4D
(The reason why I canceled this convex design/craft, it is toooo time-consuming and CNC fee is sky high, and the main reason is: it is very very very very hard to polish, maintain and etc, you can check this link for my one-off prototype: https://imgur.com/a/ia93PvO)

Personal, I want the thing to be unique, creative and perfect. But from this half a year project, it taught me that things cannot be THAT perfect. I just did my best!
So there is my solution for the weight:
https://imgur.com/a/iDDthrW

I have made a hard decision, same design but from convex type to concave type.

that poycarb with minimal looks amazing

also the video ano samples is a fantastic idea. i think that presentation should be adopted more often since it gives a much clearer idea of the color👍

Is the PCB a custom by Clueboard or the same/similar to the one sold on their site? It would be nice to know if something happens down the road and I needed a new PCB, it would be more readily available than waiting for an R2 or being SOL.

OP is from Singapore but it may still ship from China where the factory is. It is a legit question I think.

hi, this is a good question and let me explain:
The Volcano PCB is customized by clueboard team, we did some adjustments for USB port, added 3 led slots and etc. But I have talked with skully from clueboard. They will change their 660 PCB design to V660's type in the future. (Confirmed with skully few mins ago)
