Extra Add-on Parts
Please check out this page for extra parts
- Typing angle: 5° same as S7 elephant
- Case material: PC, Aluminum, Brass (limited)
- Plate material: PC, Aluminum, E-clear or PVD Brass (upgrade)
- Inner frame material: Aluminum, PVD Brass (upgrade)
- Weight material: Aluminum, E-clear or PVD Brass (upgrade)
- Reduced the overall height, and changed the corner radius design
- Added inner frame for the gasket mount. The inner frame will be screwed to the top case, with poron foam gaskets evenly distributed positioned on the inner frame and the top case. This would provide a more consistent typing feeling.
- Center USB-C port with daughterboard to avoid PCB vibration (generated by typing) putting pressure on it.
- The top case has side pockets for poron foam gaskets to avoid the plate from moving horizontally. The poron foam gaskets will have removable adhesive strips, which will be convenient for you to replace and clean up.
- Screws in the bottom case will be hidden behind the bump-on feet.
- We would potentially provide plate foam, case foam after we have the prototype to test.
- The inner frame won’t be seen from the outside if you choose an aluminum case, but you will see it in a polycarbonate case. The default material for the inner frame will be aluminum.
