Case Installation Guide (with Pictures)

INTRODUCTION

Arducam designed this acrylic case to use with several camera modules for Raspberry Pi from Arducam and the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

The following instructions show you how to assemble the acrylic pieces with the Arducam B0033 for Raspberry Pi Camera. The time required to build this is about 10 minutes.

GET READY

You can:

  • Sit in front of a desk,
  • Remove the film protector on the acrylic,
  • Get a screwdriver

and you are good to go.

STEP 1 OF 8

Pick up the first piece as the picture shows (the larger one wit the most cut-through) and align its circular holes with the mounting holes on the camera board.

The orientation of the acrylic matters and the gap should lie between the left two holes while the ribbon cable is on the bottom side

STEP 2 OF 8

After the 4 holes of the acrylic and the camera board is aligned, put the screws through while holding the camera board and the acrylic together, until all four screws are in the right place.

STEP 3 OF 8

Flip the camera board over and put it on the desk (so you don’t have to hold the 4 screws in place), then get the smallest piece of acrylic and let the screws go through all the four holes.

The notch is to the right side as the picture shows.

STEP 4 OF 8

Take the 2 “L” shaped piece out, and mount them on the base as the picture shows.

The base has three holes for you to mount the whole case on somewhere else.

STEP 5 OF 8

Hold the base like the picture shows, and then insert the two “limbs” to the left and right sides of the camera board.

You can find how it looks like after inserted in step 6.

STEP 6 OF 8

Hold the base in place (inside the slot beside the camera board), and mount the last piece of the acrylic on the 4 screws.

STEP 7 OF 8

Put and fasten all the 4 nuts on the screws

STEP 8 OF 8

Use the screwdriver to tighten the screws in the front while holding the nut still .

Now we’ve finished installing the case and you can put it anywhere you want.
