DIY Music controller designs

Peter writes – “Eoin Phillips used SketchUp (now available in a free version from Google) to create accurate 3D mock-ups of a DIY live performance music controller he’s designing and building. I pointed him to SketchUp because he was looking for a tool he could use easily as a non-illustrator. With just his first sketching attempts — and no previous experience in 3D illustration — he came up with a workable drawing. It’s proof that you don’t have to spend a lot of money or fear 3D drawing.

But more importantly, Eoin notices the general lack of DIY components in Google’s free, user-uploaded 3D Warehouse. Perhaps Makers can download the free SketchUp and start contributing some helpful parts to share for DIY hardware designs?”Link.
