I received my infinity with hacker layout
search
yesterday, and started building it today and realized once I had everything put together that my space bar wont fit. I was prepared to bend my own stabilizer wire after hearing of that problem, but if you look nothing on the 6u space bar even lines up. Anyone else have this issue, or am I trying to assemble it wrong?

You're not. The space key doesn't fit the hacker layout. I have the same issue. I've been pushing Massdrop for an answer for weeks.

My keyboard just showed up, same issue.
@troy.dai Any word if they're going to fix our space bars?
I'd really like to keep the keyboard, and I'm quite partial to the GMK set, but even if I lost just the GMK set, I'm not sure where I'd even start replacing the set from to get something unified with all the custom sizes.

No. Not a word. For replacing, you can order 6U DSA spacebar from http://pimpmykeyboard.com. For the white ones, the color matches fine. It's not ideal though.
Massdrop, can you give us an answer?

I wouldn't even mind if they offered to replace my hacker plate with a standard plate, but as of right now what they shipped is an unusable product...

Speaking of the 6u stab. I got my KB yesterday, and a 6u stab landed in my mailbox today.

Take a look at these cherry profile middle stem PBT 6u spacebars: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=520956720785&_u=t2dmg8j26111

This is horrible. Even if spacebar did fit, I can't seem to find a working layout even IF 6u spacebar fit. Unless you want 6 control keys and space between keys.

Did you get a replacement spacebar? I am having similar issues with the spacebar and the Fn keys not lining up. I assumed that the keycaps as a set would have the keys as shown in the Hacker layout - but that is not so. I feel bummed at having (for example )- to use a Control keycap instead of a Fn one.

Massdrop said they are working with GMK to get a new dye made to get the correct format spacebars made but its going to take a bit.

So all the Hacker keyboard buyers have to wait with a $220 non-functioning keyboard for want of a $0.25 part!

You can still assemble a slightly different layout. Not a reference hacker layout they have on the site but since it's programmable, it's not such a big deal. The only issue is - you have to use 1u key to fit it instead of 1.25 so there's some spacing. I have a picture in another thread.

I have the hacker layout and they did send me a separate spacebar stabilizer, so I could at least assemble it using the wider spacebar. But afaiu the idea was to use the smaller space bar and then be able to have equally sized mod-keys. Didn't quite work as the bigger spacebar will not allow you to put these modkeys in, you have to live with two very awkward gaps in the bottom row.
