2022-02-10 (F) Weekly Summary

I am nearly finished with the enclosure now that I've installed the second speaker grille and a carrying handle, and I've started working on the back panel. I will hold it in place with four draw latches. The piece is a wood slab that I cut to size and painted white.

I drafted the components I would mount on the inside to make a laser-cut panel instead of manually drilling the holes. I added some features so I could tell them apart quickly.
Drafted components

I had a little trouble cutting the panel because my holes were too close to the edge, but I revised it, and everything aligned. I used standoffs for everything to have room for wires and circulation.
Components mounted on interior panel

I drew the schematics in color, which should have come earlier, but it was still worth doing because I double-checked all my connections and had all my pins declared in a single document.

I wired the panel operators but ignored the internal devices like the MIDI synth and amplifier. I plan to tidy up the wires at the end.
Internal component wiring

I focused on the components mounting to my electronic panel. The MIDI board needed a couple of mods to act as a synth, so I made those changes. I added wires to the SD card reader and jumpered my power there. Lastly, I sketched out a holder for my screen.
