2016-09-15 (Th) Clockwork Theremin

An enclosure was sketched for the Clockwork Theremin. The dimensions were taken from desired sizes estimated with a tape measure. Several videos of people playing genuine Theremins were viewed to get an idea of how the instrument is typically operated. In order to make the device more rugged the horizontal measuring distance sensor was built into the case rather than putting it on a flimsy extension.

A CAD file was generated based on the sketch. The drawing made it easy to dimension the actual sizes of the pieces to be produced. The components on the face, like meters and switches, were estimated. When the components are assembled the actual dimensions can be used to update the drawing.
