Original sketches of the Z1 by Konrad Zuse
The Z1 consisted of about 30000 component parts. For the construction Konrad Zuse drew several schemes to define each component part in its dimensions to have an instruction for the fabrication. In the Konrad Zuse Internet Archive Repository you can find the original sketches of the Z1 and its reconstruction that Konrad Zuse undertook in 1987-1989.

360° object panorama of the Z1 reconstruction
The Z1 was destroyed during WWII and that is why Konrad Zuse reconstructed the computer to be exhibited in the Deutsches Technikmuseum (German Museum of Technology). Here you can get a detailed look at this machine by a 360° object panorama. You can move around the machine, view at it from different heights and zoom in to the see the different elements of each functional unit.
