I've been looking forward to getting this in the mail for months! Just got in the mail today. :) Sad to say that the build quality is less than desirable - my red unit is covered in scratches and the mounting plate's drill holes were poorly made and consistently rattle. Little to no instructions on how to build or setup. On top of that, how is this not hot-swappable? My advice is to not buy this kit!

Is there a way to secure the grid plate thingy. Mine floats around and rattles when i move it.

Has anyone programed this yet? Can someone point me in the right direction?

The default layout doesn't work with the keycaps I got for it.

I got them of the Marketplace at https://deskthority.net/. the only info the seller had was that they where NOS double shots from German. I fell in love with the 'divide', 'times' and the 1u '+'

Just got the mini pad and the 16th key doesn't register on keyboard tester, is this an fn key?. [4]x[4] Anyone experience the same thing?

Yep it's the Fn key. 16th key + 1st key gets the pad into bootloader mode to flash with QMK.

Thanks for the reply! Soldered it up and sure enough it's Fn. Thanks again!

For people who want QMK on the BM16-A, here's a very rough port I did: https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/ay2dlf/ported_bm16a_macropad_to_qmk/

Woah. Why is it showing ASASTek Computer Inc? That's really odd.

Hey MD, I'd buy this, and you know, spend money on your site if you would answer my question about how this can be programmed with QMK.

Yeah I saw it is in the repository, but like I said, the underside of the PCB looks different between the two so the keymapping and other items in the firmware may be different. "QMK compatible" could just mean that the chip on the PCB is capable of running QMK but not that anyone has actually written firmware for it. Doing so is beyond my ability and I'm not going to buy it hoping that someone else has the desire and gets around to it eventually.

"QMK but not that anyone has actually written firmware" These seems likely - sorry! Edit: The boards and the features seem nearly identical, it looks like the only difference is USB Mini vs USB C

Why doesn't this include an option to get switches and keycaps? Seems like it would be far more compelling if it was a complete kit.

Caps would be worthwhile as acquiring 16 keycaps is a pain and/or expensive since you usually have to buy a lot more. Switches on the other hand are are easy to come by and a lot of the people who are interested in this probably have 16 of their favorite switches laying around.

Any tips on where to buy switches? If I can find cherry browns cheap I might join this drop. I think I have some spare caps.
