A little something for all of the DIYers I made for the holiday season 2010:


The Pedal Builder's Vector Art Pack


Over the past two months, I've been illustrating all of the most common pedal parts: Knobs, Enclosures, Switches, Pots, LEDs, etc. Each illustration is drawn to exact size, sometimes from several angles, as vector art. Most of my project time was spent measuring parts with a caliper to make the dimensions as accurate as possible.


 

You can use these illustrations with your favorite graphics program to create drilling templates, pedal artwork, preview different knob types, even planning & dry-fitting your inside hardware without those pesky 'mistake holes'!


 

 

Here are a few examples to give you an idea of what's inside:



 

 

 

 


I've assembled one complete PDF file, plus a zipped collection of EPS files. This should cover most graphics programs- Photoshop, Illustrator, Fireworks, Gimp, Publisher, Corel can all import PDF and/or EPS.


You may download the collection HERE



If there are any errors or major omissions, I may make a revision to the collection after the holidays.


Hope you enjoy!


UPDATE 9/2011: I have made a short tutorial video demonstrating how to use my vector pack in Adobe Illustrator, head on over and check it out.. :)
