I got to play around with a borrowed BeagleBone board to get some kernel stuff working for a friend. While playing around with it I decided to throw together an
First off, peel the masking off all your laser cut parts.
Next, you'll mount the BeagleBone to the bottom using 14mm M3 bolts, M3 nuts, and 1/4" OD 1/4" high nylon standoffs. Make sure to mind the resistors on the back side of the board around the power connect (labeled R150 and R189).
Next, you need to partially thread all the remaining M3x14 bolts into the T-slots of the spanning pieces and the end caps. This is physically possible without assistance, but it's hard. You'll want to save yourself some time by using some scotch tape and securing the nuts in place before inserting the bolts.
Once this is done, you can slide in the bottom, sides, and top before finally tightening down the bolts. Don't overtighten the blots, the enclosure is all acrylic and it will crack under extreme stress.
You can simply leave the top off if you want easy access to the expansion headers. The
Here are some additional pictures of the enclosure with the USB host and peripheral interfaces plugged in (notice that you can see the status LEDs above the peripheral connection):
