2021-12-25 (Sa) EWC_Panel Instrument panel starting

There are only minor issues with the drum machine, so I am moving to the instrument panels. I plan to make several because each will control exactly one instrument and work independently of other units. I'll put them in lunch boxes, like the drum machine, but they'll all have different artwork, so they'll be easy to tell apart. I started with the potentiometer, which I elevated in the drum machine, which created clearance issues, so I'll recess them.

I already had the drawing for a 75mm potentiometer with M2 holes. I opened by drawing for the previous one and entered a zero for the height, and now it is a plate which I can suspend the potentiometer below. I made the platform thicker to account for my printer smooshing the first few layers. I considered adding a spacer to the bottom, but I can't predict how much space I'll need after printer distortion. After printing and curing, I added aluminum spacers, but I had to stack a nut and washer under each machine screw to get the exact height.
