Over the last few weeks, had to go through quite a few iterations to find a design solution that I could 'rig up' at home. Finally settled on the one that works. Just about, but still.
This panel was completed a few weeks back, but I wasn't able to break free to update the blog.
|Taking the measurements|
I have decided to work with 2mm MDF board for all my 'fine' detailing work.
|Making the Buttons|
Hacked a keyboard to pull out the buttons. They provide a nice tactile feel
Stuck up the buttons using "M-Seal" plastic sealant
|Rear View of the button framework|
|The tactile micro-switches for each of the seven jettison stations|
|The 'Outer Casing' of the panel|
The holes in the back plate accommodate the LEDs
In the final version, they were hot-glued into place.
For the time being
I broke it up and did it up all again
Wasn't happy with the feel of the button press in the initial iterations
