I've attached a "build order" photo to show you how the layers go together. The pieces are arranged left to right with proper orientation. Just work left to right and you should be good.
Once together you'll have a nice little sandwich with all of the parts protected. The board itself is sandwiched between the plexiglass layers and it's a nice fit.
All in all a good case. Only reason it's not five stars is due to the fact they didn't include an assembly diagram or photo.
I will say that the first time I put it together, the fit wasn't great. There were bulges where the connections pushed against one of the layers. This is a 5 layer kit. I took it back apart, and tried to be smart about it. I placed the second layer under the board (the hardest one to line up) and slid it around until it fit. I then placed the third layer on top of the board. This is the hardest one on the top, since the pieces get hung up on the USB port slips. Once those two pieces were on, I placed the rest on in order and then inserted the screws to hold it together. It worked just fine this way.
Oh, and remove the paper backing on each piece BEFORE you put it together. Otherwise it takes three tries. One to think there is a better way than following the directions. Two to realize how to really do it. Three to remove the backing.
The only downside is that you need something to push the microSD card into place. You can't use your finger to lock it in, or to remove it. A small screwdriver, collar stay (what I had handy), or anything else like that should work. Since I have no plans to swap out cards often, this is really a non-issue. I am sure some people do swap the cards, so keep this in mind.
One piece of advice: The layers in this enclosure are held together by screws that pass through holes pre-drilled in the acrylic layers and the Raspberry Pi mounting holes, and which also are used for add-on HATs. Spacers provided with the case are intended to allow you to also fasten the HAT in place but in my experience that design doesn't work with every HAT. My Sense Hat, for example, can't be held in place atop the Raspberry Pi 2 using this case and the 20mm long M2.5 screws/spacers that came with the board. I ended up having to order 25mm screws (from another supplier) so I'd have enough length to hold the enclosure layers together and also properly secure the Sense Hat in place. Note also that the board layers are held together by the same screws that hold the HAT in place so you can't easily add/remove HATs without having to deal with reassembling the case. Other enclosure designs that use separate screw holes/fasteners out at the corners of the case to hold everything together and which have other holes for securing HATs might be a better choice depending on your application. I knocked one star off my review because of that limitation, though Eleduino could easily address that by providing longer screws and/or alternative spacer mechanisms and not have to change the case design at all.
Still, I'm quite happy with the case and design otherwise. I like the black color, the excellent openings in the enclosure for all connectors and cables, and the included heat sinks.
When I opened up the box, I was happy to see that the case came with heatsinks, I must have totally missed that part of the description! However this feeling of joy quickly subsided as I read the instructions - which advertise that this case is made for the B+ model. As I'm assembling the case my exceptions were incredibly low, thinking I just got burned on this purchase. However, much to my surprise, the case fit my Raspberry Pi 2 perfectly! My assumption is that Amazon may have initially reflected this as a case for the B+ (which is understandable considering that is how the case is described by it's own instruction manual) which is why so many of the negative reviews mention the case does not fit.
However, I suppose it is possible that they have severe quality control issues and I just got lucky. I'll say this though, as the case comes with heatsinks included, which judging by prices on Amazon go for $4 or $5, you really only stand to lose $5 by gambling on this case - and I'd take that gamble again considering how gorgeous the case is.
One final note, as another reviewer pointed out, you will probably have to assemble this two or three times if you don't pay close attention. Each piece has a paper or plastic backing which you need to remove, one on each side of each layer.... If you aren't careful its easy to miss one or two and you'll have to take it all apart again.
