  1. Hello everyone, I am posting for the first time. Please forgive me for my uncertain English. With regard to creating the precise 3D graphics images, I am far from Denis's amazing graphics in Swan class 3D modeling. However, using a similar 3D graphics software, my attempt here is to create line data, i.e. frame drawings, from that 3D curved surface. Many 3D graphics software output formats are raster data, i.e. gathering of the small dots, but drawings such as CAD we use for part machining are consisting of vector data, i.e. line shapes represented by mathematical formulas. They are not compatible because they are completely different data. But looking at the graphics image like below, wouldn't you wish to make each shape of this frame to an accurate drawings? It is the software that I am using that enables it. In other topics such as “JPG to CAD” are also being discussed this kinds of matter, but I think this method introducing here is also one of the way to do it. If such an indefinite shape can be made into an accurate drawings, it is expected that drawings making and parts processing in scratch build will become much easier. I would like to introduce the outline of this method by continuous posting. I wish you will be interested in this approach. Because it is difficult for me to provide instant English sentence according to the situation, I am preparing outline description as a document. To identify the document part and the daily conversation, I use document text with green color so that you can easily pick up only the document part.
  2. We all value the plans we have gotten, from kits or just buying the plans themselves. Navigational charts are really expensive and each time they are folded or rolled there will be tension to them. If not protected, they will fall apart where they have been folded. I remember my father covering his charts with a transparent film, which I have found available through one of many office supplier companies. This one was only 18" wide, hopefully I will be able to find a 28" + for the wider plans. On this film I can use dry-erase sharpies and wipe off the lines later on. This way my plans will be protective from UV-light and mechanical strains. The film is soft enough to be rolled or folded.
