Hey everyone - the Livid wiki has all sorts of hardware and software information for how to get your projects working with a bunch of wires/boards laying around, but I can't seem to find any good examples of structural design. Where are brains usually placed within one's enclosure? How are they attached (along with push boards)? I understand that the beauty of this is that its different every time, so is there a good resource I can be pointed to that is a collection of individual experiences with this sort of thing?
I can so far only figure out the mounting of a board on a thin surface that can be accessed from the bottom. For example - with my pushbuttons, I have a machine screw going into the top of a keypad spacer, then through the silicon keypad itself, then through the mounting hole in the circuit board, then through a hex standoff. This would be easy to mount to a piece of sheet metal - place rest of screw through a hole in the sheet and close it off on the other side with a nut. But how would one permanently mount a circuit board to something that could not be accessed from the bottom (to secure the nut on the end of the screw)? For example, embedding a circuit in a deep, solid wood box.
basically - how do you guys end up putting all your shit together?
