The K1 also comes with Windows keys as well, and they're easy swaps.

VERSION: Choose what kind of back-light you want on your keyboard.

  1. White Backlight means your key fonts will shine with just white light.
  2. RGB Backlight means that your key fonts can shine multiple color combinations. It looks like the color combinations have several fixed settings at the moment, but word is they will release software later that will allow complete customization.
  3. RGB Backlight with Aluminum Frame: Same thing as above, but you also have the frame made out of aluminum instead of (I believe) the default plastic. People like aluminum because it feels sturdier and sounds "better."

SWITCH OPTION: Choose what type of mechanical switch you want in your keyboard. Switches house the mechanism that actuates your keystrokes and define how it feels when you press down on a key. This is probably the most important part of the mechanical keyboard experience. Switch preference is 100% personal preference, and is too deep of a subject for me to review here - you'll have to do some of your own research and go through that journey on your own.

Need help with Arisu pcb upload by blessedsodiepop in MechanicalKeyboards

The v1.1 Gerber.zip is only for the PCB.

The BOM 1.1 Mouser.xlsx is a spreadsheet of what to get for the PCB.

If you want to have JLCPCB to assemble the PCB for you, then you can check out this thread for more specific information on it. U/num- did a great job in sharing files for his SMT assembly here.

Also, if you want JLCPCB to do the SMT assembly for you, it may not cover all parts. And you’d have to stick with a green soldermask for PCB
