OK, I got some parts ordered to try and start this. I also ordered parts to get the isolation motion tracker off the ground as well.

I have plenty of bits and pieces but some 1/8" lexan and 1/6" lexan were used for protectors.

#6 screws were used though m3 (3mm) screws can be used to attach things.

jumper leads were also used.

placement is key on things. I tap holes with a 1/8" drillbit.

The pla was sealed using smoothon's xtc-3d resin compound.
paint is a latex acrylic cast off from lowes that was a mistint on sale.
