2D Drawing

Digital Fabrication

This week I created a 2D rendering of a pocket operator that I have.

Using a ruler I measured the device and rendered it in VectorWorks, mostly by inputting the dimensions for the different components.

I created symbols for the buttons and potentiometers and used the duplicate array function to lay them out in the grid.

The two exports show the rendering with and without dimensions.

A couple things that are missing from the rendering are the twisted wire stand that folds out, and more detail on the structure holding the batteries in place.
