The following assembly instructions are for the easy remove power supply design, but also currently serve as the general documentation for all other less complex builds.
For general builds, please alter instructions by skipping unnecessary steps.
The actual design shown is the MTMACR8-72 Easy Remove.
WARNING: DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN BOLTS AGAINST ACRYLIC - YOU CAN CRACK ACRYLIC. Nice and “screwdriver snug” is all you need.
Remove plastic or paper film from both sides of acrylic or wood. Its much easier to do this now than after assembly.
NOTE: Occasionally the fabrication process will remove one or both sides. If you can see through the acrylic clearly then the film is gone.
Attach the power supply brackets using 4mm screws and either horizontal or vertical mounting bracket.
Attach bolts. The MTMACR8-72 has both 4” inch and 3” bolts, but not all designs have both. These should be inserted in the largest holes on the plate.
See diagram below for bolt / washer / nut ordering. NOTE: Refer to your online design to find appropriate holes.
WARNING: DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN
Attach 4/40 standoffs and k-nuts to smallest holes. No washer is needed.
WARNING: DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN
Attach components to the standoff. No washer is needed.
Use self tapping screws to attach mounting plate to the enclosure. Holes should be medium size and in each corner of the mounting plate.
Insert power supplies. See diagram below for spacer / nut ordering. You control the distance between the power supplies through how long you make your spacer.
The spacers are held in place with a K-Nut. No washers needed.
Design Specific Instructions for: BudBox 32026 Double Decker w/ Full Top
The power supplies for BudBox share a single mounting bolt in the center.
To make the higher power supply level place small spacers on ONE of the power supplies only.
Insert upper shelf. Upper shelf sits directly on spacer and is attached with a K-Nut from the top. No washer is needed.
Wire it up and make it fancy.
- Don’t tin your wires if inserting them into a screw down clamp. Solder will expand slightly and loosen the clamp.
- Use fuse between power supplies and controllers. A lose connection could cause an arc and if unfused could damage your power supply or your controller and potentially cause a fire.
- Make sure you use appropriate guage wire for the amperage you plan on needing. Small guage wire on high loads can cause greater voltage loss and in extreme cases start a fire.
