chip updates: a fun technical drawing [updates]
So I thought while I was home I could learn a fun and slightly useful skill as well: engineering drawings. Drawings and blueprints are really fun to do and if done carefully can also be great tools for design just like CAD. I've always preferred pen and paper. So here is the first one. Sharpie and paper.
This one was hand-sketched with a protractor, a pencil, a sharpie marker (ultra-fine tip), a sharpie marker (fine tip), and a ruler. It shows chip from a side view and from a 50% front view (meaning a front view where only half of the platform is drawn). The drawing is made at a 1 cm = 1 inch scale. There are no electronics shown, just the overall structure more like a design sketch. Except the NEO motors, those are shown attached to the 100:1 gearboxes.
The drawing was made on a 18x24in sketch pad using thick canvas paper. I'll probably hang it up in my room but I plan to continue learning to make these kind of drawings so I can not only get better at them but faster at them so they're useful in design.
I found this: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=17&ved=2ahUKEwis_6mx-vroAhVAlXIEHexnDB8QFjAQegQIAxAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Feveryspec.com%2FNASA%2FNASA-GSFC%2FGSFC-General%2Fdownload.php%3Fspec%3DGSFC_X-673-64-1F_AUG1994.024768.pdf&usg=AOvVaw2yxgBWtcoCQBR0_9EKg4N_ which is the 1994 NASA engineering standards for drawing manual. I'll be looking through that more.
