NOTE: Acrylic is a hard and stiff plastic which is sensitive to stress concentrations and shares a certain level of fragility with glass. Acrylic can scratch easily and should be cleaned with a mild solution of dish detergent and warm water. Never use cleaners unsuitable for acrylic. Never use a dry, abrasive cloth.
Here are the parts from the case kit:
Follow these images checking parts and orientation of the acrylic pieces. You will see a before and after image for each step. Make sure you have all the parts ready, shown in the before picture.
Starting with the back plate, secure four of the 8mm stand offs using the M2.5 x 5mm screws.
Now we need to attach the wall mounting bracket. Secure this in place by passing the M4 screws through the wall mount bracket, then through the little spacer, then finally into the back plate. Secure in place with the nuts. The nuts should be the same side as the 8mm stand offs
Next thing to do is attach our Pi Zero. Place the Pi Zero onto the 8mm stand offs and secure in place using the F/F 11mm stand offs.
Attach the camera module the the Pi.
Now we need to attach the camera module to the front plate.
Start by placing the lens guide onto the front plate (the side that has the circle engraved) and insert the 4 M2 10mm screws.
Flip the front plate over and add 2 M2 washers to each of the screws.
Add the camera module and secure with the 4 M2 nuts.
Next we need to add the side walls of the case. Starting the with the wall that has the HDMI and USB cut outs, work round clockwise.
To finish off the case, secure the top plate in position with the remaining M2.5 screws
If you would like to attach the magentic fisheye lens, continue reading :)
Start by attaching one of the metal rings that came with the lens. Simply peel off the backing, to reveal a sticky pad. Press the ring down firmly onto the case inside the lens guide circle.
Once the magnetic ring has been fixed in place, simply place the lens on top of the ring.
That's it! Assembly complete
