As you may have noticed, there is no blueprint available for this car. So if you want to model it, you have to deal with refpics only. So many thanks to Thomas 'AMV12' Durand, who posted his own pictures of it herer (http://www.smcars.net/forums/picture...-elemento.html) and congratulations to mcaa666 which already started the car (http://www.smcars.net/forums/work-pr...o-concept.html)
I just love this car. So it's worth the pain to learn a new software, let me introduce you to insight3d. Short story, for the elder ones : insight3d is like Canoma, but free and damn powerful.
Long story : insight3d is free and damn powerful software, allowing you to do photogrammetry (Photogrammetry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) That means it helps you building an accurate 3D model from pictures. You give it pictures from a digital camera, you put some markers on pictures to identify the common points, and insight3d will 1/ compute the position of camera for each picture and 2/ put the points you marked in 3D space.
I attached a picture for a better explanation. You can see on it about 40 points created and displayed on one picture. I use 9 different pictures to create the model.
The workflow is to export from insight3d the cameras location and the vertices cloud, into my usual 3D software. Then, I can use it as an accurate basis to create a spline cage.
That's quite harder than doing LEGO, isn't it ?
