Finally had time to put it together. I really like the looks of it. I put some extra Nautilus keycaps on it where I could. There are a few people asking if this works with macOS. The default keymapping works OOTB. I have used Karabiner Elements in the past, but that isn't mapping the keys for this like it has for my dasKeyboard.

Update: I was mistaken. Karabiner Elements works fine for mapping this keypad. User error.

Anyway, it looks really nice and I'm happy with it. It didn't take much time to put together either.

That's good to hear. I have the smaller Falcon-8 and did a similar thing when assembling, seems like it might be easier without the single colour diodes to solder on.
What are your plans for it since you're on MAC? Programme on windows or to keep it as is? Given it's wired and mechanical it might make a decent MAC gaming pad? Either way the default look really complements your other peripherals.
Cheers for the info : )

Right now I'm just having fun with it. I've got a few artisan keycaps on order that might look good on it.
It shipped!!!!
Can anyone tell me the difference between between mx speeds and silents?
So, I can save a whole $1.75?!?
Golly. Now I can finally afford that newspaper I've been saving up for.

Oh, wait. Assembled, that's $2.50 off! That's over 3%.

I guess I can save $8 if I didn't get the keycaps, but really ... why bother?

I'm not harassing you, you're the one acting like a complete ass. Massdrop works with the first party seller to negotiate a discounted price, so when I say "they" it doesn't matter how ambiguous I'm being because I'm clearly talking about the price that is represented on the website that we are currently posting on you unimaginable idiot.

I use this for game and work together.

Where did you get those awesome action key caps?!
logos really ruin products
I would be looking for something just like this, but the fact that the plate is open on the sides and on the bottom really throws me off. Are there similar alternatives out there that anyone here would reccomend?
I've been wanted a nice numpad DIY kit. I never used my nautilus numpad keycaps for anything yet. Now they will have a home!
Can I set only specific keys as backlit in specific colours, or is it like in the Falcon-8 where keys aren't actually "individually" backlit and only part of a predefined pattern?

You can use the software to assign individual LED color in the customize lighting mode
I would buy this if there's an option with no switches cause I have my sweet sweet Zealios switches
Does this work on mac and bsd? The eight key one I have from MAX does not, just windows and linux.

Is it possible to create and update a new map without their software? (Are the map files are text based and you can upload them to the keyboard using only Mac?)
Eliad
Unfortunately no. You have to use their software to assign the map. However, I think you can run their software in Windows with bootcamp to build the map, and then it will work on Mac as the map is stored on the pad.
For gaming?

What games do you play and can you map all the keys required?
Vengeance
World of Warships. You can map any key to any key in their app. (There are 3 button at the bottom of the PCB for you to switch layers and light effects if you dont map any key to the layer switch key)
