This a new and improved version of the UT47, one of the best 40% layouts out there.
Group buy will run for 2 weeks (until Feb 28th) and will ship approx. 2 months after.

The group buy comes with:

  • Pre-soldered Hotswap PCB
  • Top and bottom plates
  • Screws and standoffs
  • 2u stabiliser

All you’ll need is switches, caps, & a USB C cable

Comes in two colours options: Purple or Matte Black.

Here are some of its awesome features:

  • Pre-soldered: Everything will be pre-soldered! No soldering required!
  • On board MCU: this makes it way more low profile as well as less likely to run into problems
  • Kailh hotswap – change out switches as you like
  • USB C – a more reliable usb port
  • RGB Underglow – add some awesome animations and color to your keyboard

This is such an awesome board at a great price! I definitely will have to pick one up. I have a couple questions if you don’t mind.

What colors can the case come in?
Will you release the files for the case so that we can print our own?
Will you release the files for the plate so that we can get one custom cut?
Does anyone know how well 3d printed plastic would hold up to hotswapping?
PLA? ABS? Other?

Thanks!

What colors can the case come in? Any color! If you want a premium filament I might charge a couple dollars more.
Will you release the files for the case so that we can print our own? I’m going to release a simple version for people to print and modify
Will you release the files for the plate so that we can get one custom cut? yes
Does anyone know how well 3d printed plastic would hold up to hotswapping? based on my testing, it’s going well so far. I pack the board in my backpack and I’ve swapped the switches out twice already.
PLA? ABS? Other? PLA

Hmm, I really like the layout & price. I’ve also wanted to get a smaller (60% or below) hotswap board for switch testing for some time now. As long as I get paid on time for the last I job I just did I’m down for one of these! :metal:
