      Not Supported Scratch Built Build in Progress

      Hi there!

      I'd desided to give some thoughts here for fabrication of car model pars out of the 3d surfaces that can be transferred to 2d cutting patterns by means of 3d software like Rhinoceros 4 and show some minor personal experiments with "English wheel", but basically something kinda of EW that i made from some junk and small ball bearing.

      Ok, first of all I've got to tell about the plugin for "Rhinoceros" that called "Squish" that perform unroll of the double curved surfaces into 2d patterns that can be lately formed in whatever.

      Rhino itself can be found in torrents....and the plugin to be downloaded here

      The 3d element goes well also too if modeled in another 3d application, let say 3DsMax, and then exported to Rhino and squished there. Like this trunk of Peugeot 403, that is known and become famous after TV series about Lt. Columbo.

      The way the pluings are installed in Rhino is described for example here

      And then goes this:

      Click the surface, type "squish" in the command line, choose the settings for unroll, and that's it, you've got nice 2d cutting pattern, that can be exported to dxf or dwg e.t.c.

      Than hammering, and all the other stuff to make it look the way it should be. The method just like the way real car patterns can be worked out....

      So, Imanaged to get that, out of the scraped air freshener, and a formers, to align the trunk.


      Not the pretty ones, but for those experienced ones, I suppose it can be not a big deal to make everthing look smooth....

      ....and also this. Porsche 911 wing, and kind off motorcycle wing. The last was the first experiment with the material, that was simply hammered on the iron former....

      I understand that conventional methods are maybe simpler and easier, when working on the wooden formers, but if this information can be helpful and bring smth new...that was all about... )

    I have really been amazed with your techniques,keep it going,I am following it! By the way,the videos you made are extremely helpful,I learned a lot of things from them. Maybe can you make a video or an explanation about the design process of a model from pictures like the Mustang Milano you did? That would be great.

    Thanks for the video. Did not hurt that it is in French!

    [B]Roger, [/B]Seems to be the most detailed vid of the car making process. (B.W. Noticed how they raced on the testing area....))

    [B]MargaritisJB[/B] ok yeah, thank you.

    The Mustang is not mine.

    May suggest the following on your request. From the internet.

    Camera match in earlier versions of the Max. Till 2014.

    But this one is way more simple to set up the scene for modeling from photos. Perspective match.

    Just to show the squished parts with cardboard buck layout. But they are without front wings formers, couse just need to find the file with'em.

    And PDF to it

    To sum up an idea on getting data from images for 3d model creation and in order to come to some logical conclusion - this video, and U'd better check the channel of this guy.

    As you can see the build is not all metal parts. The frame is cardboard. I just simply decided to make it a bit of simple way in this field also in order not to mess with all metal chassis, 3d development of it and so on. Just front panels etc.


    But, before that I made also some work in some handmade tools for this approach.
    That's kind off milling mashing, and planishing hammer or I guess a riveting gun technics with simple tools.





    ______________________________


    That's the way I just tested the drill with perforation "on" to pull (hammer) the metal on former. Quite a good result on quick hand testing.

    It seems very interesting; unfortunately, your pictures are so small that it's hard to see details.
