MachineCollective Enclosure, version 2
Xndr brought over new pieces for the enclosure with modified measurements and new screw holes, here are some more pictures of the enclosure in stages of assembly.
But I had some problems with the plastic spacers. Because I needed to take the box apart and put it together several times, the threads inside three of the spacers wore out. Perhaps it'll be necessary to use metal ones instead.
Meanwhile it's great to hear that the more people are busy working on the 'Arduinome' software. As well as a new version of the firmware, a custom app is being developed that will replace MonomeSerial. This app is specifically designed for use with Arduino powered monomes, and we are assured that it will bring important stability and performance improvements. Check the announcement on the Bricktable blog.
Also: a big thanks to Thomas Margolf, again I summoned his huge electronics expertise to solve a problem that turned out to have been caused by my forgetting to connect some wires [foreheadslap].
