Introduction

Most projects require at least one part which doesn't conform easily to the grids. This part is often central to the purpose of the project.

Challenges

Unique parts may not have easy mounting points or compatible hole patterns. Adapting them to the grids can be a challenge.

Approaches

  • offset a frame with stacked washers to match an existing hole pattern
  • drill holes matching your unique mounting requirements in plates to create an adapter plate.
  • cage the part
