Adding art to already built panel
« on: May 15, 2022, 11:27:36 am »
I have an older control panel and this cp never had graphics/artwork. Id like to add an overlay to this panel, but I dont have a photoshop template of the button placements.  Do I need that?  Whats the best way to accomplish?

If you had a photoshop template you could use it to design the art you want and then send to a vendor to have an overlay UV printed on either acrylic or aluminum.  Then once you get it from them drill holes in it for the buttons/sticks.   Since you don't have one you'd have to do all the measurements manually.  If you need help with it let me know.
