Are there CAD files available for the acrylic layers? I'd like the 3rd plate layer be metal, with those files I could probably have shapeways make me something to that spec..

They'll be made available as soon as the keyboard ships. Don't want you to build something, then we discover a problem during manufacturing, rev the case/pcb and the case you just built is now useless...

Sounds good to me, thanks.
BTW any guidelines to be aware of when using a metal layer 3 (the plate that the switches/pcb get attached to)? I think a metal layer would give a more solid feel (similar to the metal backplate in my CODE keyboard) but I'm unsure if there any extra precautions needed on my end.

Check out the photos right above the "Specifications" section. It looks like they are already planning on using a metal plate for the switches to snap into.

Yeah good catch, looks like your right, that's perfect then, looks like this kit has everything I need.
