Install NeoPixel to Panel

Use two M2.25 x 8mm flat head machine screws to secure the NeoPixel stick PCB to the standoffs on the top panel. Tap the mounting holes on the PCB for a better fitting. Insert and fasten the screws into the mounting holes. Place the PCB over the standoffs with the holes lined up with the standoffs. Hold PCBin place while fastening the screws.

Install Panels to Cube

Get the cube and the panels ready! The side panels are printed in a different color to distinguish which side will trigger the timer.

Bottom Panel

Starting with the bottom cover panel, orient the piece so the micro USB port on the Feather is lined up with the square cut out on the cube. Insert the cover through the opening and click the edges into the nubs to secure it closed.

Top Panel

The panel with the NeoPixel stick is installed in the opening directly above the Feather HUZZAH PCB. Insert the lip of the panel into the opening at an angle and press the rest of the edges through until they click into place.

Connect JST

Grab the JST cable from the NeoPixel and plug it into the Prop-Maker FeatherWing.

Back Panel

Orient the back panel with the micro USB port and press fit the lip into the opening.

Front Panel

Repeat the same snap fitting procedure to the front facing panel. Use both hands to slightly flex the opening and firmly press fit edges through.  

Task Panels

Now it's time to install the special task panels for time tracking. Use stickers, vinyl decals, or different colored parts to tell the tasks apart. Sticky note or label for something with more legibility.  

Assembled Cube

Take a moment to inspect the panels and make any necessary adjustments. If everything is as expected, congrats! The time tracking poly cube is fully assembled and ready to log your data!
