Step 1: Create the screen

Go to Auto shapes menu. Select the ‘rectangle’ tool to draw two rectangles- one bigger than the other. Place the smaller rectangle slightly towards the bottom edge of the bigger rectangle. Fill the bigger rectangle with black color and the smaller one with white. Write your text inside the smaller rectangle. This forms our projector screen.

Step 2: Draw the upper beam

Draw a long horizontal rectangle that forms the top beam. We need a ‘D’ shape on either sides of the rectangle to serve as holders for the beam. You can use ‘Delay’ tool in auto shapes menu to create the shape. Go to Auto shapes menu -> Flow chart -> Delay tool

Delay Autoshape
Leave a small space between the beam and the holders. The result should be as follows:

We use a similar chrome gradient when creating balance diagram as well.

Step 3: Draw the pipe at the bottom edge of the screen

Copy the top beam. Reduce the width of the beam to create a narrow pipe.

Go to Auto shapes menu -> Basic shapes->select ‘Block arc’ tool.

Block Arc Menu
Create a small arc and fill it with black color and remove outline. Invert the shape and stick it to the bottom edge of the narrow pipe you just created:


When you place this along the bottom edge of the screen your Projector Screen Image should be complete. You can also add drop shadow to the shapes to give your diagram a more realistic look.
