Help on a specific curvature

Postby sketchartist023 » Thu Jul 04, 2019 4:53 pm

Hello, I am working on a 3D vehcile model, and I am trying to get the base of the model to work with the windows.
honda2.skp

Since the windows are flat, I noticed while putting them in "place", the curvature of my front edging is pretty ugly due to projection.

I don't currently know of a working plugin for sketchup 8 (wont change version btw ;) ), that can project the window curve well or even so, how do you think I can fix this to make it work?

Hi there,
throughout the forum, I am not aware much about car modeling so perhaps there is the reason for not making a lot of support here.
I think you are using tools which will you get not far when car modeling is what you are after for.
Here are some YT vids on that subject:

Artisan plugin or SubD plugin is, in my opinion, the best tools for this kind of modeling.
You will need a few more but if you watch the video you will see additional plugins he uses.

Here is his 3dwarehouse collection:

This is Patreon page he has so maybe here you could get some more info on how to model a car:

Here is his Artstation page:

And last I think is Deviantart page:

Here also is Chipp Walters tutorial series on using Artisan for Lightcycle:

Hope this helps.

I think we use many different methods for what we make and I do not have experience of your method from what I see here.

Trial and error to mix and match aspects of different methods may work.

Thank you for the answers and the video!. It is amazing how people come up with ways to model now days and it is very helpful to see visuals. Yeah, everyone is different for sure :) I think I will do some trial and error for a long time lol. But will help a lot! Hope you all have a great day :) Awesome links too btw TY! I've heard of Deviantart before but never browsed what it was until now!
