M6-C

The M6-C enclosures have arrived, we have everything in stock except for the GRID caps & the M6-C Silicone bases. We expect these to all arrive this month though! Then all units will be shipped out if everything in the order is in stock.

We have approved the latest batch of M6-C bases for production; several improvements were made since the initial design. On the left is the first production sample, but given the density of the material, it would cave in too much, so we made some adjustments so that it sits more flush around the PCB.

GRID Keycaps

Production Ready

Our latest round of samples has arrived from the updated mould. We have made several improvements from the original tooling. This includes:

  • Removing the ejection pins

  • Removing the sprue from the underside of the cap

  • increasing the grit of the underside finish

We will soon receive the colour samples of each variation. Once that's approved we can promptly begin production.

These keycaps are moulded in Polycarbonate and hold exceptional colour. We will be offering custom colours of the GRID keycap in the future.
