CAD Assembly

The GEMMA M0, 5V MiniBoost, switch and NeoPixel Jewel are mounted to both sides of the 5V fan using M3 x 30mm long screws. The GEMMA M0 is press fitted into a PCB mount which is secured to the bottom of the torch cage. The fan is mounted over the GEMMA PCB mount. The NeoPixel Jewel is secured to a separate PCB mount using 2x M2.5 x 6mm long screws and nuts. The NeoPixel Jewel PCB mount is secured on top of the 5V fan. The 2200mAh battery is hidden inside the handle.

 

Slicing Parts

No supports are required. Slice with setting for PLA material. 

The parts were sliced using CURA using the slice settings below.

  • PLA filament 220c extruder
  • 0.2 layer height
  • 10% gyroid infill
  • 60mm/s print speed
  • 60c heated bed

Design Source Files

The project assembly was designed in Fusion 360. This can be downloaded in different formats like STEP, STL and more. Electronic components like Adafruit's board, displays, connectors and more can be downloaded from the Adafruit CAD parts GitHub Repo.

Installing Top and Bottom Cage

Insert the fingers from the bottom half into the slots on the top half.

Secure Top and Bottom Cage

Carefully press the fingers inward and lightly apply pressure. Slowly fit the fingers into the slots. With the nubs fitted through, firmly press together to snap fit.

Cage Disassembly

The cage halves are designed to be removable. Squeeze all of the fingers inward on the bottom half and gently push the top up and pull them part.
