These boards alone are a proof-of-concept but still not reliable for much testing since the components are exposed, so I need to make an enclosure. Adafruit does a remarkable job documenting their products, and I had no trouble downloading the dimensioned images of their IMU board and microcontroller board. I had to measure the battery and vibrator by hand. I mocked up the devices in QCAD and arranged the rectangles. When I examined my configuration, I saw that I would have trouble with the power wires which stick out from the controller board and battery. I added dimensions to my drawing, so I should have fewer headaches when I model the enclosure.
