I took training for the laser engraver at the hackspace, so it became time to look at some free drafting programs. In the past, I was able to borrow a few minutes on my work computer with AutoCAD. I tried QCAD, and it was easy to switch skills over, plus it ran on all my computers.
Draft of faceplate

I did not look online for dimensions of my components and chose to rely on measurements, so I was prepared to make multiple iterations of the faceplate. In the first version, I planned to drill holes for mounting the Arduino or redesign the plate with those holes later.

I was not sure which material I would use for my faceplate. The hardboard on the left side of the picture was from dry-erase board scraps, and the blue plastic was from the giveaway bin at the hackspace. It was clear acrylic under the blue covering.
