Included in the kit:

-Case (Left to right, top to bottom) 2x 3mm Top plates 1x 1.5mm Switch plate 1x Super 16 V2 PCB 3x 3mm Middle plates 1x 1.5mm Bottom plate

2x Rotary encoder supports

-Hardware 4x M2 x 5mm screws 4x M2 x 12mm screws 4x M2 x 8mm standoffs 4x Rubber Bumpons

Tools required: M2 driver or allen key

First step is to test the PCB. Check that all LEDs light up in the front and in the back.

Test each key to confirm that they are sending inputs. The lower left key is used for layer switching and will not register an input.

OPTIONAL: If you opted to use rotary encoders, install and solder rotary encoders.

OPTIONAL: One or Two encoders can be installed in the top corners of the PCB.

Remove protective cover from both sides of all your acrylic layers.

Protective backing can be White, Brown, or Blue depending on the acrylic.

Time to install the switches.

With the PCB on a flat surface, install your switches one by one. Installing switches starting with the top row makes it easier to keep the plate from sliding. You can use one of the top acrylic layers as a support to keep the plate from sliding down when trying to clip in the switches.

Another picture showing using a top layer as a support between the PCB and the switch plate. This can help prevent cracking the switch plate.

PCB and switch assembly completed.

Time to assemble the bottom section of the case. There is one thin bottom layer and 3 middle layers. 2 with a USB cutout, one without a cutout. Use the shorter 5mm screws and the standoffs.

The middle layers can be recognized by their larger corner openings to accommodate the standoffs.

Attach all 4 standoffs to the 1.5mm bottom layer using the shorter 5mm screws.

Make sure not to overtighten to prevent cracking the acrylic.

Next place the 2 middle layers with the USB cutouts on top of the bottom layer by having the standoffs go through the corner openings.

OPTIONAL: If you installed Rotary Encoders, then at this time you will want to insert the acrylic supports into the slots at the sides of the 2 middle layers.

OPTIONAL: Make sure the supports are all the way down

OPTIONAL: Here you can see the support positions going vertically on the left and right sides of the case. NOTE: The supports may require sanding to properly fit if the PCB and switch plate unable to sit flush in the case.

Now place the closed middle layer on top of the USB cutout layers

Take the PCB and switch assembly and place it on top of your middle layers by sliding the USB port section under the layer at an angle.

Slide the switch assembly forward until it is lined up.

The middle acrylic layer will sit between the USB port and the switch plate.

Next place the 2 top layers on top of the switch plate.

Making sure not to overtighten, screw in the remaining 4x 12mm screws through the top layers and into the standoffs below.

Stick the four rubber bumpons onto the bottom plate.

Recommended position shown.

Your Super 16 V2 is now fully assembled.

Add some keycaps, and you're good to go!
