IR Remote Enclosure

While the PCB is getting made, I've done some work on the enclosure.

It is being made from five layers of 5 mm transparent acrylic from Ponoko.The layers are held together by M3 countersunk machine screws. While the front and middle layers have 3 mm holes for the screws, the rearmost layer has 4 mm holes for fixing the screws by using threaded insets. The rearmost layer also has three holes for mounting the PCB. The PCB will also be mounted with M3 screws into threaded instets and lifted a bit off the back using nylon spacers (which I need since there are a couple of through-hole parts).

The opening in the bottom of the middle layers are for the DC power plug.
