Hey everyone, I recently received my sample of the 3Run keycap sets and can confirm the 6u spacebar will not fit with the Infinity 60% hacker kit. We are now working with GMK to get this issue addressed so we can get everyone the correct spacebars. This is going to be a very involved process and there will be a wait while we work to build and develop spacebars with correct stems. While we are working on this I will keep everyone updated throughout the process!
It should be much practical that to replace the switch plate with stabs hole cut out for both the SP and GMK stem width plus additional stabs spring for GMK spacebar, instead of inquiring GMK to develop a new mold set.
I have raised this issue before, it is sad that neither MD or IC aware what I mentioned.
The stem is off centre, no amount of plate change is going to fix that. What you are suggesting is not a fix.
The picture on the IC website is not of the "hacker" layout. That's what the "Standard" layout plate looks like.
Leave it to Massdrop and IC to solve instead of ranting about people "not knowing about your post", you've waited nearly 6 months for this to arrive, you can wait a bit more, just be patient .
So, 3Run would then be the only GMK keyset that could use with Infinity 60% Hacker.
No. In fact, hacker set requires center stem spacebar. Where's it's off-center now. So I think having center stem makes hacker layout more flexible. Just nor working with GMK set. Further, your solution would not only require a new plate but also a new board. Which seems not only way more expensive, but also huge desoldering job for those who's already assembled. So not sure how it's easier than just getting a different spacebar.
I have realized that no off centre switch mount on PCB, thus concluding that no GMK set other than 3Run could be used on Infinity Hacker, unless we order centre stem spacebar from GMK each for Classic Retro, Carbon, Dolch, 9009, Skidata+, Olivetti, Triumph Adler, Hyperfuse, Skeletor, blablabla...
It's more than just the space bar you've got to worry about. The whole bottom row is custom, plus the short shift on the right isn't what most sets include.
" After we designed the keyboard and made a prototype, we decided to offer an additional keyboard design- named the Standard layout- featuring a US standard bottom row that includes the commonly found 6.25 unit spacebar. While unique keycap sets would be incompatible with the bottom row of the Hacker layout, the Standard layout works well with existing keycap sets and offers a larger range of customization options. " - Copy-paste from the drop description.
Should we plan on waiting for this? I posted a help ticked and was told to return it for a full refund. There was also an issue with the hacker keyboard caps lock key not lining up on the left edge.
It will definitely be some wait. Tooling will have to be made and tested before we can get updated space bars to everyone affected.
I also feel (and told MD support) and having two Fn keys in lower right and left corner is essential, in addition to a proper spacebar. Without it, we cannot have a default hacker layout as defined by Infinity.
Hey there, and thanks for working on getting the kit fixed. Is there anything I (someone who purchased the "hacker" layout) needs to do to get a 6u centered spacebar? Or will it all get done based on orders?
Will be automated. We will send it out to everyone affected by this!
Any news or ETA on this? Will we get the blue 6U spacebar with center stem aswell?
Any ETA update on this? I wonder how many people are affected by this and cant use their keyboard. I got the hacker kit too - and am almost finished assembling after a long wait.
Hey an update for everyone. We expect the initial molds to be completed at the end of July. It will take some testing to make sure everything is working 100%. After that, we can get the replacement ordered and sent out to everyone.
Is this just for the spacebar or for the misaligned left Fn key too?
I would like to know this as well. I really hope you make it right by providing right keys for reference hacker layout, not just a space bar.
As I posted on some other thread on this page - I contacted MD and they are willing to RMA the keyboard instead of offering a solution. Bummer!
Is there an update on how the new space bars are progressing?
Hey there, the tooling came out well so we have replacement spacebars on order.
We are expecting them to come in at the end of October. I'll keep everyone updated as soon as they arrive!
It's good to hear that they turned out well.
Thanks for all your hard work on this, I look forward to seeing a beautiful blue space bar on this keyboard. :)
