Here’s a technique I’ve been using lately in designing and sharing some of my projects. I received a few comments about how I made the diagram in my Passive Victrola iPhone Amp Instructable
With this technique, technical labels and dimensions can added to a 3D image of your product or project. But with a couple of slick tricks we can make the text itself 3D and appear to be in the 3D space and not slapped on the surface afterwards. This can help to explain some tricky parts of your design or just make it look cool. The example above shows what I mean; I borrowed the designs from two cool Instructables that can be found here
. I use Blender and Adobe Illustrator for this.
This is just a basic outline of this technique. I’ve gone into more detail in a blog post here
for those looking for more.
