Notes on mechanical design
PCB frame was constructed from Openbeam:
- Horizontal members 167mm long
- Vertical members 1 x 140mm and 2 x 40mm long
Brackets and feet were laser-cut from 3mm blue-tinted acrylic, supplied by Ponoko.
2 x 197mm long, 12mm dia. stainless steel rod was used to brace the feet and give the unit some 'heft' to prevent it skittering around the bench once cables are attached.
Fasteners used are M3 nuts, M3x8 (frame) and M3x12 (card guides) cap screws.
