Mismatched hole on Base 1 and Top 1 for 10" screen


#1

I’m working through building a 10" picade with my son, but when we attempt to construct the screen assembly, the “Top 1” and “Base 1” plexiglass pieces have holes that do not line up with the primary plexiglass 4:3 screen covering. No permutation of rotating and flipping seems to make things line up. They’re close, but far enough off that you’d have to really really force the screws and likely crack the plastic.

Am I missing something or is this just badly made?

I don’t have a picade of any sort but this thread may help Picade (new) 10" screen upgrade kit concerns if not I’m sure someone else will be along with the correct info!

Can’t quite visualise what you describe but the top two screw holes are not used in the 10” version. The top is secured by the notches in the side panels only. Hope that helps?

I had this problem as well. And it has nothing to do with the 10" screen not using the top holes. The two holes on one side of the screen acrylic are not drilled in the same position as the parts that are meant to attach to it using the M3 bolts and nuts (the BOTTOM 1, BOTTOM 2, TOP 1 pieces). The 10" screen prevents the use of any bolts through the top holes (which eliminates the issue with the TOP 1 piece), but the two bottom holes are still supposed to have bolts through them.

Because of the incorrectly drilled holes, only one bottom side bolt can be inserted through all required pieces.

I just received my Picade and have the same issue! So you guys just assembled it ok with this misaligned hole (and not putting bolts through?)
