2023-10-24 (Tu) EWC_Cyberdeck Faceplate revisions

I discovered some of the footprints were still inaccurate or outdated. The last prototyping board that fits onto an Arduino Mega had a different footprint, so I created a new drawing for the current model. I added eight mounting holes around the perimeter at intervals and ensured I could access the microcontroller's USB port.

I did not have a plan as to where I would mount this in the unit, but since it will be modular, I can carve out a location later or even make it wireless.

I cut a plywood faceplate with my laser engraver and found a few errors. The toggle switches were too small, the tactile button cap holes were snug enough to bind movement, and the window for the screens had gaps. I made the necessary corrections and cut a second unit. I installed all the hardware to confirm that it fit.
Test fit of all the operators
