Commissions


Quick Info

  • Cases have a floating PCB design, which means soldered builds are recommended. Hotswappable PCBs will work with the case, but might have issues if the switch holes in the PCB become stretched if you constantly change switches. If you press your keys hard, it also might cause the switch to pop out of the hot swap socket.
  • Lead time is 4-8 weeks, starting the day the invoice is paid 
  • There are NO refunds for custom commissions due to the customization of orders

Case

See here for design updates

The case is made up from 7 acrylic layers (with acrylic layers used for the stand) stacked on top of each other using a combination of screws and standoffs.

The current design features a 1-step design from the top most layer to the next.

This design also accounted for a 'flare layer' which is intended to be an accent color to your case.
