Openflexure Microscope V7.0.0-beta1 released

Known bugs and bug fixes:

We have identified a couple of bugs in the V7.0.0-beta1:

Pi Camera lens spacer:
V7.0.0-Alpha3 introduced a bug that was not noticed, the lens holder is incorrect and will not hold the Pi camera lens in the right place. This can cause strange problems in the image quality as the lens is not held firmly flat to the mount, or may make it impossible to focus because the lens is recessed too far into the spacer.
(Gitlab issue #287 for details)
SOLUTION: use the PiCamera lens spacer from version V7.0.0-Alpha1

Condenser 5mm LED work-around:
The illumination module was substantially changed for V7.0.0-Alpha3, to accommodate a custom PCB. It was designed to allow a 5MM LED to be used as an alternative, but a bug causes the 5mm LED to be in slightly the wrong position so that a diffuser cannot be fitted.
(Gitlab issue #286 for details)
SOLUTION: Use PTFE tape as a diffuser, as the optional suggestion in the LED workaround instructions
added 18/01/2023: (There is also a hidden explanation that is not linked in the instructions, but may be useful here)
added 27/09/2023: Gitlab merge request !321 addressed this. The new lid STL is condenser_lid (MR321).stl (350.0 KB) which allows the 5mm LED to fit with a diffuser as in the v7.0.0-beta1 instructions.

Condenser for Upright version
The condenser module for the upright microscope has no access for putting the nut into the nut-trap.
(Discussed in Gitlab merge requests !315 and !316)
SOLUTION: There is no static solution at present. !316 is close to completion to address the issue. There is a ‘View App’ button on that page that will take you to the latest build of this modification with the new parts and instructions this will change whenever we try something new and may may become broken
Edit 27/09/2023: The new parts and instructions are now merged, which makes it harder to link to the solution. The image below of the new upright optics assembly should show how it is now basically the same assembly as the normal illumination using the illumination PCB or 5mm LED work-around. There is a new condenser upright_condenser(MR316).stl (500.0 KB), and a platform upright_condenser_platform (MR316).stl (91.8 KB). The platform takes the place of the lid in the standard illumination assembly.
