I have really enjoyed the recent video collection showing how to draw an electric motor. Several of the techniques have improved the way I work no end. Inspired I decided to draw the hot end on my new backup 3D printer which is currently waiting for assembly.
The work flow was easy:-
1 Pick the part up and measure it
2 Draw it on the iPad
3 Have a coffee
4 Repeat the cycle
Unlike my other projects there was no creative thought needed because it was just an exercise in drawing. However, I gained a much better knowledge of the way the parts worked together, and in the process developed ideas to improve the cable management on the machine. I now have a very accurate model which I will use to design my own attachments.
