I'm really disappointed. I cannot directly order from MD so I had to ask my friend to help me. He doesn't know anything about mechanical keyboard or anything else related. I must wait him to send me the package. I received my package this morning, and guess what, there are 2 (TWO) RIGHT HAND CASES inside the box. Unbelievable!!!

Per https://www.massdrop.com/buy/infinity-ergodox/talk/1607719 and my own experience building today, there is no difference in parts between the cases of the individual halves. Unwrap them and reverse the order of the acrylic layers and it'll all fit together.

Thank you and @PlzPuddngPlz ! Yes, I'll just do it. I flipped the case order and it works. It's just the feeling of disappointment when you realize that it's not the way it should be. And there's still no official comment from the one who is in charges of this group buy. Maybe, we – customers of this group buy, satisfy ourselves about MD mistake, then it will happen again with the next group buy. Sorry for my English :)

they are reversible, you just swap them around. Design "feature".

To be clear, that wasn't a mistake. It's designed with the intent that they are reversible, and each hand can be either hand.
It probably saves us money, since it means they have to tool up and print/cut/build half the parts that would be needed if they had separate designs for both hands.

That's how it supposed to be, you just flip all the plates over and it's a left side.

@jbma @jceaser Yeah, it's okay to flip all layers to have the left one. But it's not my point here, guys. For the acrylic layers, it's totally fine if you want to flip them. But for the aluminum plate, with the laser die-cut (my guess) it's suppose to be either left or right hand. The edge of upper surface is much more smoother than the edge of below surface. If it's reversible, they should finish both surfaces with the same way. I have to say it again: "Maybe, we – customers of this group buy, satisfy ourselves about MD mistake, then it will happen again with the next group buy." It will be just "fine" for me. But no comfortable at all. Btw, thanks guys :)

I'd have to open up my keyboard to know the difference. My guess is it saves a bunch of time in manufacturing because they can produce 5000 right hand plates in one setup vs having two set ups and having to produce 2500 left hands. If there's a fixed cost in place for tooling, that shaves money off the price.

If so, they should tell us about it. We have paid for 1 left hand and 1 right hand, not 2 left/ right hands. @jceaser Awaiting your reply, man ^^ After assembled, we cannot see any different. But in fact, it's not. And I feel really, really uncomfortable.

so Im looking at mine now, both sides seam to have the same polish and treatment, in fact there is a bit of a grove around the edge of the plate where it looks like they hand sanded the top and the bottom but not so much the edge. Both sides of the plate have the same matted finish and the holes for the keys look the same on both ends. What caught my eye at once was the key holes. I have a plank that was quite rough in the corners, this plate was very nice, but there is a slight notch out in each corner that looks a bit rough to me. Both sides of the plate have the same "feature". Putting keys in were smother on both sides then the Planck I got in the fall.
