Ellipse Rev1 Extras (Read Description)


SKU: N/A Category:



To manage inventory, I had to split parts of the kit into different items.  YOU MUST ADD TO CART ONE OF EACH OF THE FOLLOWING ITEMS:

ENCODERS (click here, only order one per kit, will include 3 encoders)

KNOBS (click here, only order one per kit, will include 3 knobs)

The Ellipse macropad, a macropad with 3 rotary encoders and 3 mx style keyswitches.  If you didn’t see it, you may ask, why would anyone want that?  Here are some ideas:  controlling settings in photoshop, pan tilt zoom for 3d controls, scrolling sideways and zooming, and many other possibilities.  Basically any setting that comes in sets of 3 (or less, or more using layers) can be controlled using this macropad.

Quick summary if you don’t want to read the wall of text below:  The macropad has 3 encoders and knobs included, an acrylic plate case, rgb underglow, backlighting compatible, and QMK.  These are now extras from the group buy and would ship within 1 week of your order.

Pricing, Shipping, Logistics:

  • Base price is $50 including paypal fee
  • Depending on which encoder and/or knob option you select, there may be a small extra charge (up to $5) because some parts are more expensive and harder to source than others. This is strictly optional.  There are encoders/knobs available within the base price.
  • Priority flat rate USPS shipping within the US is a flat fee of $8
  • Shipping outside the US is expensive, up to $40 even for a small box. If you choose to purchase from outside the US, option your shipping on the purchase website will appear to be free, but I will have to talk to you and manually calculate your shipping cost. (You may want to message me in advance and tell me what country if you care about the price)
