Help Group discussion • Modeling a vehicle from 'blueprints' or plans • At least a 3-view drawing of the vehicle is required to start • The three views will establish the x,y,z (red,green,blue) position of vehicle features (such as a wingtip) • The more accurate the 3-view plans (or 3 photos,) the more accurate your SketchUp model will be • When measuring or transferring positions, it's more intuitive if you use 'parallel projection' rather than 'perspective' • NOTE: Photomatch is not really suited to this task • (Photomatch is intended for linear, angular objects such as buildings, cabinetry and furniture • Photomatch depends heavily on perspective and vanishing points) • In this 3D model, detailed features were derived from photographs and NASA technical reports, however, the basic configuration was initially established as depicted • For the completed X-15-1 aircraft model, see: #3view #aircraft #airplane #blueprints #drawings #plane #plans #vehicle #x15
