To build the case as shown here, first 3D print the base and top models:

Feather + Wing

Solder header pins under the Feather board as shown so that you can plug it into the TFT FeatherWing.

See this guide section on "Soldering Plain Headers" for more info.

The FeatherWing has an ENABLE switch which will disable both Feather and Wing - so make sure it is turned ON while you're using it

Case Top

The TFT fits into the case top snugly. Note that the bezel has one slightly wider side which should be on the right side of the display to cover the blank area of the screen assembly.

Top Screws

Insert the four M2.5 x 16mm long screws from the top of the case, going through the mounting holes of the TFT. Thread the four nuts onto the screws, getting them finger tight.

Standoffs

Assemble four sets of standoffs and screws into two different lengths as shown. These will be screwed onto the long screws from underneath the base.

Insert the two longer standoffs into the deeper holes, and the two shorter standoffs into the shallower holes.

Assemble

Push the case top and screen/Feather into the base and then screw the standoffs onto the screws.

You can see here some suggested placements for the four rubber bumper feet. These help prevent sliding.

USB Plug

You can plug your Touch Deck into your computer directly with a USB-C cable, or get a snazzy right angle adapter!

Use the Touch Deck

The Touch Deck launches with your default layer of icons. Use any of them now, or pick a different layer with the Layer Next or Layer Back buttons.

Press the Layer Home button to return to your default layer at any time.

Customize

The Touch Deck download from the previous page includes the icons and layer file for three different pages: YouTube Controller, Discord Adafruit Emoji, and Greek/Math Symbols.

You can create your own custom icons and layers, such as this Wirecast streaming setup that includes eight camera switching controls plus four app launcher/switcher buttons.
