      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... )

    Just randomly taken car's wheel. With just simple photocamera. And no tripod mounting

    Then if working on 3Ds Max you can use plugin Wrapit. It creates conventional surface form weather the point cloud or very high poly from photoscans. Ofcourse you have got to build it like any other model. It does not do all the job for your.

    Also. There is Autodesk Remake. Creates scans form photos very quick if in online mode on it's server. Just log in. Pure beauty.

    Applied colors. Mixed based on the color code taken from photo. Almost the right one)

    The restoration of Police Detective Lt. Columbo is coming along nicely! I got to see the real car at the lot at Universal Studios in Burbank, CA parked with other cars from recent productions (at that time 1982) including the hero car Camaro Z-28 along with 2 wrecked Z-28's from the filming of "Fast Times At Ridgemont High."
