Let’s start the assembly with the PCB. pcb

The first step is to solder in the header pins for the controller. Instructions can be found here. On the PCB you will see text, indicating on which side which component is supposed to go. text

Now solder in the reset button. Again, please pay attention on which side of the PCB you have to solder it on. button

Now is also a good time to solder in Mill-Max sockets if you want to. Instructions on how to do that can be found here. switchmillmax

Next solder in the OLED. This goes on the opposite side of the controller. The OLED should sit straight in the cutout in the switch plate afterwards, so solder only one pin at first. oled1soldered

Align the OLED before soldering the rest. Heat up the one pin and make the OLED straight. oledstraight

Now you can solder in the other 3 pins. oled4soldered

Clip off the pins of the OLED on the other side. Otherwise the controller will not fit. oledclipped

You have to flash the controller. You can find the firmware here. And instructions on how to flash a controller here.

It is good practice to confirm the PCB working after you flashed the controller. So plug it in the computer and see if you can get it to show up in VIAL. VIAL

If your controller is working, you can solder it in. Instructions on how to do that can be found here. When you have the PCB in front of you so that you can read the text on it, the USB port should go to the top of the PCB. You should not see the components of the micro controller, when it is sitting in the PCB. controller

Insert the Switches into the switch plate. You can use the switch plate both ways around either with or without the TUTEL writing. switchplate

And put the PCB onto the switches. plateandpcb

When you are not using Mill-Max sockets you will have to solder in the switches now. switschessoldered

Screw in the 4 standoffs into the switch plate. standoffscrew

Then place the bottom plate on them and screw them in from the bottom. You can reverse the bottom plate so you can use it with or without the TUTEL writing on there. bottomscrew

Now add the rubber feet. bottomfeet

The only thing left to do is to add Keycaps to your MacroPad. keycaps

And you are done with your TutelPad! cover
