Hey everyone, pretty excited to bring this one back again with the improvements the community asked for.
In the words of XMIT - "I've spent the past month looking through eleven pages of notes and about 450 (printed) pages of Massdrop comments, as well as many threads on this forum and the other keyboard forums. All of this has resulted in a roughly 80 page design document that I will share with a few beta testers and my design, manufacturing, and distribution partners."
XMIT is currently traveling but will be jumping in the discussion later tonight - he is pretty excited for round 2.

If you guys made a metal case version, I would be all over it

With the layouts you can get your own case.

Someone would have to confirm of the pcb's fit standard case. For example, the 60% won't fit standard 60% case because the usb connector is on the wrong side

That's why you check the layout against whatever case you get.

Could this be solved by drilling a hole?

If you have the correct drill yes. Wood would be pretty easy. Aluminum is possible with the right drill and stuff, but I doubt most people have them.

I mean, you would still have to use the keyboards plateless or have to modify the plate, its not as simple as dropping it in.

Aluminium is very soft for a metal, I've used normal drill bits on it with no problems.

Well no shit, I think the point is that not everyone has a drill, and this keyboard will require modification if you wanna use it in a different case.
