    Corner

    Long Edge - $1.50ea
    Short Edge - $1.50ea
    Middle - $2.50ea
    Corner -$1.20ea

    for a 2x2 matrix you would need 1x center, 2x long edge, 2x short edge and depending on how you want to mount it 2-4x corners.

    They look good. I might end up with some similar ones out of plasma cut steel as I don't have access to a laser cutter but do have a plasma cutter over the road.

    Hi Coz,

    You should throw a price together, I have a few people wanting the 3D printed ones but if these are fast to cut out then it may be sensible to do them as laser cut to the community, the 3D printed ones being still good for people with their own printers.

    One current difference is I did design in captive nut holders to allow things to be attached to the brackets themselves if needed.

    Hi Coz,

    Would definitely be interested - I pinged Phil about the cost of doing some on his 3D printer too and am sure that there are others considering these panels because Daryl said that all his 100 octoscroller chips got taken at the Sydney mini.

    (Mind you - I took more than required as was not sure how many were required to drive what)

    the bolts actually came with the panels, they have magnets in the end, i just havent got replacements for them as they arent my panels.

    Be careful if you source your own screws. If too long, they will contact the underlying circuit board and ruin it.

    Hello Cozbert,

    Thanks for doing this.

    Are these 4 different types of 3 different types. Perhaps if you can update the pictures with a number /letter for each diff one , so that orders are clear

    What was your config of panels and how many of each did you need ?

    Do All Panels have the screws in the same spot? Is it a Standard?
