How to Assemble the Pibow

The Pibow is made to be fairly easy to assemble, with helpful colours and numbers to assist you along the way.

For children it is also a simple learning experience, but make sure younger children are supervised,as the kit does have some small parts.

First, make sure you have all the bits:

Getting Started

Remove the protective film from the layers of acrylic, to reveal a nice, shiny surface.

Separate the screws and nuts if necessary and put them somewhere safe where they won't roll away or be eaten by curious, hungry pets.

Layer up

The first seven layers have a number on them on their top. This number should always be in the same place as you build the case. We will call this location the top-left for reference.

The Tricky Bit

The Easy Bits

The Last Bit

All Done!

Well done! Your Pibow is now complete. The case should feel robust and solid, with no layers moving, and nothing rattling. Your Pi may be able to move, but only a small amount.

If you have had any problems, or there is anything you think could be explained better, please get in touch with us atsupport@pimoroni.com

We'll have a PDF of these instructions that you can download and print at some point.
