This is an OpenLOCK E (2x2) floor tile that can supply battery power to any or all of it's OpenLOCK ports. Use it with the powered OpenLOCK clips to power other tiles like the torch wall.
For instructions on how to get started with OpenForge, we have a set of tutorials. Want to sell OpenForge prints? Want to use OpenForge designs in your product, check out the license FAQ.
OpenForge is now a patron supported project. I use the resources that my patrons give me in order to get the resources to let me create more sophisticated tiles with a greater level of detail. Please, support me, and I’ll deliver an ongoing stream of awesome gaming terrain. You can find more about OpenForge and Masterwork Tools at our:
- All 3 printed parts
- Aluminum foil strip, 3 inches wide
- Hobby knife and or wire cutters to clip the aluminum foil to length
- CR2032 battery (see the torch wall for a recommendation of where to get one)
Important Note: At every step you can, test with an LED to make sure all the connections are still working fine. You are going to be super unhappy if you glue the top on and then it stops working because you didn't test.
Take the aluminum foil and fold it along the length until you get the width of the foil down to under 5mm wide
This aluminum strip will be somewhat ridgid (at least compared to the foil). Cut some lengths from this about 2 inches long.
Fold the aluminum to create a contact, and fold it around part 3 in one of the divets. Glue part 3 into part 1
Put the battery in, writing side (larger side) up
Fold the top contact roughly like this
Glue the top down (yes, this means that the battery is glued in, so try not to waste it. They should get ~ 20-30 hours). Prime and paint.
