2021-10-21 (Th) EWC_Panel Resin curing buttons

When I assembled my posts and discs through the chassis, I realized that I should have waited to cure the discs. They would have been softer and more pliable to form a better seal with the posts. I processed my four-button arrays with the ultraviolet laser after applying a drop of fresh resin and letting it seep between the gap of the components. I wore protective glasses while handling the 5mW laser, and I saw wisps of smoke or vapor when I shone it on the liquid resin.

I imported my OLED screen footprint to OpenSCAD and created a printable model. I may have made it too shallow, but I can always make another. Like the button chassis model, I didn't add supports to the interior, and some of the layers flaked off, but they're inconsequential.
