 +Here lies an inventory of all parts included in the **Official CrowBox 2.0 Kit**. While the [[CrowBox20_bom|Bill of Materials]] is our document for sourcing and pricing kit parts, this document is the **user-facing** portion of the instructions which lists and describes each part.
 +
 +This section will eventually contain diagrams of each part.
 +
 +====== Structural Parts ======
 +This section lists all kit parts which are used to construct the external housing and internal framework of the CrowBox.
 +
 +===== Wood Parts =====
 +Structural parts laser cut from 1/8" plywood (baltic birch)
 +
 +==== Front Panel ====
 +Forms the front '​face'​ of the CrowBox. ​
 +==== Rear Panel ====
 +==== Baseplate ====
 +The baseplate consists of two identical parts which are laminated together to form a thicker, stronger baseplate.
 +==== Perch Arm ====
 +Consists of three identical parts which are laminated together to form a strong, straight perch arm.
 +
 +==== Side Panels ====
 +  * Upper left panel
 +  * Lower left panel
 +  * Upper right panel
 +  * Lower right panel
 +
 +==== Perch Pivot ====
 +These parts serve as a structural gusset to reinforce the connection between the **baseplate** and **front panel**. Critically, these parts also support the pin upon which the **perch arm** pivots.
 +
 +The Perch Pivot is assembled from two pieces- One for the //left// side and one for the //right// side. These are not interchangeable,​ as the //left// part contains a cutout into which an optical sensor will be installed.
 +
 +
 +===== Clear Acrylic Parts =====
 +Structural parts laser cut from 1/8" clear cast acrylic
 +
 +==== Deposit face panel ====
 +A large, clear triangle which caps off the **Deposit Box**
 +
 +==== Deposit side panels ====
 +Clear parts that form the sloping walls of the **Deposit Box**, giving it its triangle shape. ​
 +  * 2 pieces- left and right, identical
 +
 +==== Sorting Plate ====
 +A clear platform to which food and coins are delivered. This is where the bird roots around through food and coins. This is also where birds deposit coins that they bring to the CrowBox.
 +
 +==== Sorting Plate Shoulders ====
 +Smaller platforms situated to the left and right of the **Sorting Plate**
 +  * 2 pieces- left and right, identical
 +
 +==== Deposit Ramp ====
 +This thin piece of acrylic is the bottom-most component of the **Deposit Box**. Coins deposited by birds are delivered to the inside of the CrowBox by rolling along this ramp.
 +
 +==== Deposit Ramp Rails ====
 +These thin, sharp triangle-shaped parts support the **Deposit Ramp** by holding it captive between them.
 +  *2 pieces- left and right, identical
 +
 +==== Coin Tube Walls ====
 +These four pieces assemble into a tall, narrow box which holds a stack of coins to feed the **Training Coin Dispenser**
 +
 +  * Coin tube, rear
 +  * Coin tube, left
 +  * Coin tube, right
 +  * Coin tube, front
 +
 +
 +===== Colored Acrylic Parts =====
 +Structural parts laser cut from 1/8" colored, opaque cast acrylic
 +
 +==== Machine Deck ====
 +The **Machine Deck** supports the critical components of the Reward and Coin systems.
 +
 +==== Reward Rotor ====
 +A 3.5 inch rotor with five large holes for dispensing reward treats.
