Hey everyone, I’m back with another update on the MT3 Susuwatari Keycap set. Since my last update, we’ve created a few more rounds of samples and ran into a couple problems which made our goal of fulfillment in 2019 impossible. I’d like to share some details of the various problems and solutions we’ve been working on the past month. Legend Material We ran into an issue where the second shot of outer shell ABS caused some heat deformation to the first shot (the legends). Since both the legend and outer shell are the same material, the temperature needed for the outer shell to flow will also cause the inner shot soften and deform. With some additional testing, we were able to address this issue by adding polycarbonate into the legend mix. This allowed the inner legend to retain its shape in the double-shot process.

Here is an example of a keycap with the initial issue - notice the legend is uneven in density. Legend Color After fixing the first problem, the polycarbonate mixed into the resin caused the earlier issue of washed out looking legend colors to resurface in an even more pronounced way. This was a bit more difficult to overcome, but the samples we received this week seem very promising. Here are a few photos below of the new green and blue legends and I will be reviewing these with @matt3o as soon as they arrive in the office.

Our next contingency plan is to fly out to China with @matt3o so we can work on the colors in person if this latest sample run is not approved. We will update everyone on this endeavor once we have a chance to review the latest samples. What’s Next? Like I mentioned above, worst case, @Matt3o and I will head out to China to finalize the legend colors, but I am hopeful this latest set of samples will be it. Once we’ve had a chance to review we will update the community again on next steps and timelines. My apologies for not hitting our goal of getting these fulfilled before the end of the year, but I do think everyone will be very happy with the final product we are putting together.

Is it common for ABS keycaps to have other materials (like polycarb) mixed in? I worried about how it may affect the quality of the plastic compared to other ABS sets I have, but I don't know if they are 100% ABS either.

There is an update on Matt3o's website. Good read. TLDR: Most likely finished in March or April. Maybe later. https://matt3o.com/happy-new-year-susuwatari/

I don't fault @matt3o in this, but, damn. That new ETA is a tough one to swallow. Thanks for the update!

What email address did you use? I also need to update them as I moved and realized I have no idea what's the best way to get hold of them!

With all the cancellations due to the, frankly incredible, delay I am pretty sure there will be some sort of re-offering in the future for all the extra sets produced.

Yup. They will mysteriously have *leftover* sets. Surprise!! At this point, if they go through, there will be plenty of leftovers. Man I have been waiting and come to this thread at about once a month.

I bailed on this when it was delayed, but now I kinda regret it. This is looking like it will turn out good.

At this point, it'd be nice to produce a few (50?100?) extra BASE sets if possible. What a simple, elegant keyset. Thanks for working to make this right!

I also hope so. It must be really painful to wait for nearly a year.

More than nearly a year, this drop ran in October 2018, IIRC.

Hey everyone, Wanted to share another update on the status of MT3 Susuwatari. We are currently still working with @matt3o on the final colors for the set. The same issue we’ve noted in our previous update is still something we are working on solving. Currently, we are looking for one more round of color matching on the off-white legends and dark modifiers. In addition, we are fine-tuning the different color modifiers in order to ensure legibility with the various legends. Our goal is still to these fulfilled before the end of the year. We will share some photos of the next round of color samples when they are available as well. We want to apologize for the delays and can’t wait to bring this one over the finish line.

The attitude is what's wrong @bandreadygoband : no one is acting like a baby. There's frustration, there's a bit of comedy and too much radio silence from Drop. Projects like this do take time and delays do happen. Drop should learn from each delay and buffer their deliverables better. They should also consider adding a calendar / timeline / list of milestones to each project right under Description. This would frame the conversation in a positive manner... my two cents! Happy Holidays everyone!
