Chapter Three - Casing up
In this chapter, we'll explain how to assemble the casings.
All the casing layers
Peel off the protective layer on both sides of the acrylic casing!
All the casings should be transparent once you remove the protective layer
This is a good time to remove the protective layer on the screen as well.
Step 1 - Assembling the front casing layer
You need these components
Place the casing panel on the board
The bolt is securely tightened with a screwdriver
Step 2 - Button caps
- The main board
- 2 small plastic button caps
- 3 plastic slider caps
- 7 plastic rotary encoder caps
All the button caps you'll need are here!
This is where the two small button cap components should go
Place the first slider cap
Plastic slider caps - all set!
Align the cap to fit the rotary encoder component on the board
All of the plastic caps for the rotary encoders are adjusted
In case you haven't removed the protective layer from the screen, now would be a good time to do that!
Step 3 - Preparing the side casing
- The acrylic side casing layer
- 3 black nylon spacers (2 long and 1 short)
- One medium metal bolt (not the biggest, not the smallest)
The components you need for this step
Tighten the black nylon spacer
Add the long nylon space
Ta-da! You tightened the nylon spacers
Place the medium metal bolt in the middle
In the end, you should get something like this
Step 4 - Assembling and connecting the speakers
- The acrylic back casing layer
- Two speakers
- 8 medium metal bolts
- 8 metal spacers
The components you'll need in this step
Place the speaker from the bottom of the casing layer and insert the metal bolt from the upper side.
Add the metal spacer
Tighten the metal bolt with a screwdriver
The first speaker is tightened to the casing layer
Both speakers are tightened to the casing layer
The board + the speakers
Insert the cable into the port
The speakers are assembled
Step 5 - Connecting the casing together
The back side of the casing + rubber feet
This is where you should stick the rubber feet
- The main board + speakers that are connected
- Both of the side casing layers (one of them has the nylon spacers connected)
- The bottom side of the casing layer where you just put the rubber feet
- One medium metal bolt
Components you need for this step
Place the side casing layer on the table
Connecting the bottom and the side casing part
Make sure it fits vertically
Add the front casing layer
Connect the speakers to the main board if you still haven't!
Add the speakers
Does it fit the puzzle?
Tighten the bolt
Your Jay-D is assembled!
... just like this!
Make sure you turned off your soldering iron! Unplug it from the power source, place it on the soldering iron stand and let it cool off for at least 5 minutes before you put it away in your tools box.
