    BAUER LITE *

    DEVELOPMENT PHASE

    We have received our professional SLA 3D Printed prototype and it is looking fantastic! There will need to be some adjustments before final tooling can be made, but we are very close. 

    Known Info
    - Injection-molded
    - Bauer Lite PCB will be the same form factor as (and compatible with) Bauer 2
    - Bauer Lite plates will be the same as (and compatible with) Bauer 2
    - Bauer Lite top/bottom case is not the same as Bauer 2 metal versions (i.e. not compatible) because the injection molding process requires a different design for production
    - Bauer Lite mounting system will be the same style as the Bauer 2, with neoprene pads and taco bumpers
    - Will be consistently available and may launch it with an unlimited preorder
    - There will be a hotswap PCB

    GMK BURGUNDY R3

    FORM SUBMISSIONS SUBMITTED TO GMK

    + We will update when GMK gets back to us on the submissions.


    GMK 9009 ROUND 3 *

    REPLACEMENTS BEING ORGANIZED

    + Since it has been so long since this form was submitted, we are going to be sending $0 "invoices" to everyone for your replacement spacebars. This will allow you to enter the correct address if it has changed since you submitted the form. This will be much faster than individually reaching out to each customer to check on the address. If you do not push the invoice through, we will not ship your replacement out. So please be checking your email in the coming week or two. We will update here once we have sent them all. This applies to Omnitype orders only. We are not handling the other proxies replacements.


    GMK DRACULA

    IN COLOR MATCHING PHASE

    We have unfortunate news that we dread to have to give. The round 5 modifier sample was not right. The sample was just as bad as the round 4 sample that we clearly stated was unacceptably wrong, but somehow round 5 was just as wrong. We submitted our thoughts on Tuesday for an unprecedented round 6 sample. Round 5 only took a little over 2 weeks to receive, so hopefully this one will be quick as well. 

    Below you can see a photo of the 5 rounds of samples in order. We are showing you this so you can understand how far off the round 4 and 5 samples were and how they were simply not acceptable to use in the final product. No matter how difficult the decision was. The photo is only the show the comparison between the modifier samples and not to perfectly represent how they look in real-life. Some of these samples may seem like they are right, but we are matching each color to be part of the overall palette and not independently. The relationship and contrast between the alphas and modifiers is very important, which is why we are going to such great lengths to get it right. 

    We submitted our thoughts and reiterated for a 3rd time now, the changes that needed to be made from the ROUND 3 sample. Round 3 was very close to being correct, but was just a little bit too dark. We provided in depth measurements and adjustments to do everything we could to help them make the changes, however, the samples following round 3 were incredibly over lightened to the point that they could possibly be mistaken for the alphas, which is forcing us to have to get another round.

    We are committed to getting these colors as perfect as we can to live up to the design that all of you expect to get.
