Since I am heading towards the finish line on this project, I figured I had better start tying up all of the loose ends, before it’s too late. And by too late, I mean before the project comes to a standstill from any one of this tasks. One of the last things I needed to do was perfect the cosmetic / structural face plate that will hold the KAOSS Pad KP-2 in the guitar body.
From the myriad of pictures I’ve posted in the past, you may recall that I have nothing but a big ugly cavity in the guitar body, cut to fit the KAOSS Pad.
Now you may remember, from this previous post, that I created a CAD drawing of a face plate that will not only serve as a cosmetic trim piece, but will hold the actual unit in the body of the guitar. Well the original design didn’t go so well. When the original face plate arrived, the dimensions were WAY off. So I decided to put this on the back burner, until I was forced to revisit it. Well, that time is now.
Using a website called Ponoko.com, I am able to upload a simple design file, and fabricate a polished and professional looking product. Time to remeasure, and actually get the CAD design correct this time.
