2023-09-20 (W) EWC_Cyberdeck Headphone socket install

I forgot to add room for the TRRS headphone connector on the left side. The 4-conductor cable will carry power and data between the central unit and this keyboard half. I had some TRRS breakout boards, which would be easier to install than chassis-mount units. I redesigned the left side pieces to include a cavity for the component, holding it steady and providing a wireway to the onboard microcontroller. I labeled each layer according to where it should be in the stack. I eliminated the gap layers to support the hitch pins holding this in the cyberdeck.
Room for running wires

The first revision felt flimsy, so I added another M3 hole between the hitch pin holes. I manually drilled the top and bottom layers to include this feature but added it to the drawing for future builds. I assembled and disassembled the unit several times, which was tedious because I had to install the bolts from the bottom without letting them slip back through. In the future, I would like to install coupler nuts in the middle layers to add short screws from the top and bottom.
Secure and accessible
