My printer is too small for this enclosure

A project log for Bar LCD Music Player

Building a standalone music player using the Majoca Iris bar LCD Display

After the breadboard-level mockup of this music player was working, I wanted to see how well this would fit into the roughly half-1u form-factor I was aiming for. To do this, I needed to get the display and buttons onto some sort of chassis. I decided to try out JLCPCBs board fabrication and assembly service, which I've been meaning to do. It worked out quite well. 

I've been using a Lulzbot Mini 2 for a couple years, which works great but is too small for a lot of my uses. I end up having to bolt parts together from smaller pieces, which I did here as well. 

Once I've settled on the button layout and overall dimensions then I will either send this out to print in fewer pieces, or possibly try to use FrontPanelExpress to make a partially aluminum enclosure or something like that.
