    How are the Phidgets mounted? Are they just glued?

    Very cool, but whoa! These pics are tearing apart the forums. Can you embed them instead of using IMG tags?

    Metaform3D: They are just temporary there at this stage, They will be bolted on to the Acrlyic sheet.
    Matt: Sorry, I would probably have to remove them from here and redo them, I now have M/S picture it so can reduce them to the sizes that I have previously posted. These shots were taken 6 months ago. So I need to take them over and reduce them.

    I see.

    I've found that short lengths of 1/8" acrylic tubing can be welded (acetone) to the sheet for ultra-cheap standoffs.

    Metaform3D: Yep, That would also work ok, but remember that acetone or any substance that melts perspex or acrylic sheet will make the surrounding area go a milky color as the fumes bite into the sheet.

    Where did you get that gripper? Did you make it?

    If you use "Manage Attachments" here in the forum, it will resize them on the fly for you into thumbnails that can be clicked on and "drilled down" to larger resolution twice over. No effort at all!
