At our last workshop one of our attendees really fell in love with our workshop door signs. He asked me for the file. Sadly it is long since gone but I offered to create another and post it here on the blog. The original sign was obviously sponsored by the movie ‘Robots’ which was a little more current at the time.
I created the danger lettering vectors in Illustrator as I am used to the way it handles lettering. This file was imported into EnRoute.
The rectangles were built using the rounded corners mode. To create the teeth of the gear I used the multiplier took checking the appropriate boxes to get the gears to wrap around the circle and align correctly.
The teeth were then merged with the circle.
I then used the chamfer vector tool to round off both the inside and outside of the gear teeth.
Lastly I added the rivets to the inside of the rectangular frame.
Next time I’ll be building the custom tool and gear letters. Stay tuned…
