Read this instruction guide completely before beginning assembly. If you have any questions, write us at the gmail address listed on the Contact section to the right of this post.
Spare cases can be purchased at our Ponoko store:
Extra materials needed, not supplied in kit:
-Gorilla Glue to assemble the case
-Elmer's Glue-All to glue the Merkblatt to the upper lid
-Hair bands or twine (to keep the case together while the glue cures
-Post-it (as a shim to raise the rear part of the arduino inside the case)
-Houseworks 1131 hinge (1 pack) (miniatures.com)
-Small chain from hobby shop to hold the upper lid partially open.
already assembled case. To do so, the left and right joints in the front panel were cut with the saw attachment in a Leatherman Multi Tool. The whole corner does not need to be destroyed, see the left corner for the amount of material to be removed. Once the corner is cut at a 45 degree angle, the front panel will pull off.
This step is optional and can be skipped.
For the bottom half of the case, use the big piece without the laser engraved logo.
The two big pieces are identical. If you use the laser engraved one here, the logo will be hidden under the arduino and the inside of the top half of the case will be plain.
Notice the folded post-it. This is used to raise the rear part of the arduino so it sits level inside the case.
The post-it was folded in half so that the adhesive strip was on the outside and then folded in half in the other direction two times.
The adhesive will keep it in place once the case is assembled.
No way to avoid the camera reflection in the glass. Can you identify the camera model?
One at a time, moist all the fingers in all the pieces. Keep the fingers submerged for about 30 seconds.
Tip: by scraping the wood piece against the plate while it is submerged, the laser burn marks are removed.
At this point, a chain will be nailed down into the left piece. The other end will be nailed later into the upper piece and it will hold it partially open.
The nail needs to be above the touchscreen PCB. Test fit the case around the pcb to determine the depth of the pocket. The pocket has been measured to be 3.2mm deep. The nail can be driven 2mm to the right of the edge.
The nail will go where the red star is shown on the left piece.
Do not apply glue to the bottom piece. The four side pieces will glue to it.
The front panel is shown after glue is applied. The other three side pieces will look the same. As each piece is glued, put them back in their position.
Do not get glue on the LCD screen. If the protector film is still applied, you are in good shape. If not, clean it immediately.
After a minimum of two hours, the hair bands are removed. The case joints are tight and the arduino powers up.
The floor plate on the lower case will have an engraved enigma logo that will be hidden from view.
The hinges shown are Houseworks 1131
At this point, the other end of the chain can be nailed to the inside of the left side of the upper lid. See the bottom picture for details.
This one shows the Merkblatt (Instruction sheet) glued to the inside of the upper lid.
A serialized Merkblatt ships out with all simulators.
