Final Assembly

Mounting Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi is mounted to the piboy-bottom.stl part with 2 #6-32 x 1/2' Phillips screws. Position the Pi into the bottom enclosure and hold it in place while you fasten the two screws.

The Last Two Wires

Solder wire #2 to the Positive+ pin and #6 to Negative- pin on the PowerBoost 500.

Solder Negative

Solder wire #6 to the negative- pin on the PowerBoost 500.

Mounting LiPoly Charger

The MiniLipo charger is mounted to the piboy-bottom.stl part with 2 #4 x 3/8' flat Phillips screws. Position the charger near the bottom right of the enclosure with the USB port facing the hole.

Mounting PowerBoost 500

PowerBoost 500 is mounted to the piboy-bottom.stl part with 2 #4 x 3/8' flat phillips screws. Lay the PCB in the center of the part, just below the Pi with the JST facing towards the bottom. Hold it place while you fasten the screws.

Mounting Battery

Position the 2200mAh lithium battery to the bottom of piboy-bottom.stl with the wires facing up. Press it into the clips to snap it into place.

Installing Gamepad PCBs

Grab a chunk of fun-tac or putty and separate it into three pieces. Roll these pieces into strands and carefully tac them to the surface of the three pillars in the center of the piboy-bottom.stl part.

Position the three PCB over the corresponding platform and press it down to hold it into place. Lay the piboy-top.stl part over and check to see if the traces line up with the button cut outs. Keep adjusting and checking the position of the races to get consistent alignment.

Once you have good alignment, hold the piboy-top.stl part with the inside face up. Place the buttons and elastomer gaskets into the enclosure. Still holding the top part, grab the piboy-bottom.stl (containing all ze electronics) and place it top of piboy-top.stl and snap them together.

Closing Enclosure

Use 4 #6-32 x 1/2' flat Phillips screws to secure the piboy-bottom to the piboy-top.stl
