Another day, another render. This is exercise 9 of the planed 12 for the Bus Pirate Edu kit. In Huaqiangbei we tested out some part sourcing services for our parts kits.

    I’ve been noticing it with other similar renders that you posted, in my opinion the perspective on your renders looks wrong. I know it’s probably correct (if I’m not mistaken you’ve set up the camera very far from the subject with a very small view angle), but unless you did it on purpose, I’d suggest you either do a real orthographic projection (with no perspective at all, ie. camera at infinity, if your software allows it), or you move the eye/camera at arm’s length from your subject to get a more realistic perspective.

    From my point of view, it looks perfectly fine. A close-up perspective (and focal depth blurring, and random dents, stains and texture) would all add realism, but also be distractions from the goal of a technical illustration.

    I’m assuming your jumper leads all follow the SOIC color version:
    The reversal of colors from the original can be confusing:

    Would you consider adding a small “chart” or label to the view, indicating which pins are in use?
    GND [Black][White] +3.3V
    +5V [Gray][Magenta] ADC
    Vpu [Blue][Green] AUX
    CLK [Yellow][Orange] MOSI
    CS [Red][Brown] MISO
