Provide final aesthetics, distances, and notes.
- [Instructor] Okay, we are at the stage now where we had already presented these designs to our team, and they had made some revisions and selected what they wanted to work on. The design that they had picked was this third on here. It had the best feel, best design concept, and they want to push forward with this. So the next step is to establish the notes and dimensions and buttons for this screwdriver. So what we need to do now is get rid of the other images on our screen, okay? So what I want to do is find out which one is our design we're keeping.
Okay, so these two are not it, so let's go ahead and shift select these two and delete 'em. So this one can go too. That one needs to stay. This one can go. I'm not sure what this one was. Okay, let's go ahead and get rid of this handle right here. It looks like I have painted on a different layer by accident, so let's go ahead and paint it back out. Believe it's layer one, copy three.
That's correct, so with this I'm just going to go to the eraser button, that's the letter e. Just go ahead and go to bigger brush size using the right bracket, and just simply paint over it. Then from here, we can go ahead and let's see what this layer is attached to. It's nothing, so go ahead and delete it. We can now shift select the layer one and layer three copy together. Hit control + e to merge. And I want to make sure I turn on the grid once again.
Make sure it's still maintained on a symmetrical line. Go ahead and go to snap to grid. So yep, the snap is on. Go ahead and let's move it up. Make sure it's still on the symmetrical line, there you go. I'm going to move it to the right. We're going to scale it up a bit because we want it to have as much coverage over the canvas as possible.
Then from here, we're going to go now and turn off our grid. And we can just start adding some notes now, so we can proceed to the CAD project. We can go to the brushes here. We can draw some lines that look like this. And we go into our typing tool. I usually go with a text that is pretty big. We don't need anything that is, yeah, Myriad Pro is fine.
And make sure you have a black color. And we could just say we call it rounded, because right now the tip is flat. So we're going to say it's rounded tip. Back to the typing tool. We're going to go down here to the bottom. Then I'm going to say bigger oval opening. These are some of the revisions you will get from a director or your team, but this is just some of the small things I'm going to put in there.
Alright, now with that being said, we can now save this as our document that will go into Rhino. The first thing I'm going to need to do is save this file. We're going to go now to this little button here and pull up the menu and look for flatten image. This will take every layer and merge it into one single layer. We can go to file, save as. And in your Chapter 1 exercise folders, we're going to call this Ref Image.
And under the dropdown as the type, you want to select JPEG. Going to hit save. And for your options, just make sure it is at least a high or a maximum resolution. And there we have it. And we will continue by taking this into Rhino and creating our vector lines.
