[sdiy] Wooden side panels for synth

The best way I found to replicate PCB with precision on where all parts are placed
is to use a free ‘transparency’ program called Glass2k. This program permits the user
to adjust the transparency level of a PCB design software placed just over a PCB picture to replicate.
You just have to make sure the size of parts pin spacing are the same on both views
then just redraw the traces and place parts in the PCB design soft.

I just used Glass2k to redraw an old PCB I made in the past but did not keep the original Gerber..

I've tried scanning PCBs to determine placement of pots for DIY panels, and I find that, at least on my flatbed, I still have parallax problems that shift things around a bit.

Can you put the old damaged ones on a flatbed scanner (with some object of a known size for scale adjustment and get the hole centres and maybe an outline that way?

I’ve been experimenting with Super Vectoriser Pro on the Mac to automatically convert raster images (TIFF etc) to vector (DXF) seems to work well with a bit of parameter experimentation
