Install stabilizers first! (and OLED/rotary encoders)

  1. Install stabilizers, rotary encoders, or OLED panels.

    1. OLED panels must be soldered flush with the pcb or as close as possible. Trim the header pins and do a fit check before moving forward.

    2. If you're using the 3d-printed OLED mounts, use the included wire to connect the panel to the board.

    3. Trim the rotary encoder pins as short as possible.

  2. Install standoffs into the plate.

    1. For gasket-mount, follow the guide image below. Tighten the screws so the bottom of the screw head is flush with the top of the plate.

  3. Assemble the switches and PCB onto the plate, without soldering any switches.

    1. Install some keycaps to make sure your layout works (specifically the areas with multiple layout options).

  4. Remove the yellow tape from the DIP switches.

  5. Configure the DIP switches according to the guide on the LED PCB, shown below. The default firmware has left as the master and right as the slave.

    1. Optional: Test the PCB!

  6. Solder your switches into the PCB. There are many guides online for this, Adafruit has a good reference guide.

  7. If you're using a regular case/ no case, solder the JA pads together on the LED PCB. If you're using a Full hand frame, solder the 3 JB pads.

  8. Attach rubber feet and/or tenting feet to LED PCB.

  9. Screw the LED PCB onto the standoffs installed earlier.

  10. Optional: Install the frame onto the LED PCB using included screws.

  11. Optional: For the Full hand frames, solder the included jumpers to connect each of the two PCBs. Then install the frame.
