During lockdown, one of the ways I've been passing the time is watching videos concerning the repair/maintenance of arcade games, and pinball machines.
A common occurrence in said videos, is referencing the schematics, sometimes on the printed page, sometimes via a scan of the original schematic.
The vast majority of these schematics were hand drawn, and hand lettered, and then copied/printed over and over, and later PDF scanned.
My question is this; Has anyone considered/Would anyone consider recreating these schematics in a modern 2D CAD system to make them more uniform/readable/scaleable, and potentially easier to archive?
I'm painfully aware of the scope of such an undertaking - I personally spent three years converting several book series from PDF scans to e-Books (about 800 books in all), so I'm not suggesting this would be an easy task, but I am wondering if this idea warrants consideration.
