Discussion in 'Blueprints: Requests' started by multimediaman, Nov 25, 2004.
I was just wondering, how are you gonna make these blueprints from those pictures?
that's outlined at the beginning of this thread.
I am in need of my truck's blueprints. It's a 1985 Toyota 4Runner. I want to model the truck for a class project. I will try to make the blueprints from the method you are using(and thanks for the idea!) but for good measure would you like to give it a try? I can take the pics as you described, shrink the file size and send them too you. Thanks for all your hard work on making blueprints. Also, any more pointers for creating the print myself?
sure I'd like to give them a shot. but yeah, for creating them yourself, I've just gotta say to focus on one small detail to line up from one picture to the next, and then set the pivot of that picture, and rotate and scale accordingly. Then make sure the vehicle looks to be sensibly sized. I've had some prints appear to grow as they went down the line, which is fairly easy to do
This is what I have after working on the side view. It is made up of about 18 images.
I started working on the front view and... well its much harder than the side.
Wouldn't it be easier if we mailed a request to all of car manufactures on behalf of this community, asking for high res/detailed technical drawings of their models so people can model them up for a project? I've emailed a few manufacturers and the only response i get is "sorry we don't release that sort of information" It sounds like a reply from a stupid bimbo that doesn't even know what a blueprint is! We need to target the people up in the top of these manufactures not the stupid customer support people...
I'm really after some decent Opel Manta A technical drawings so i can plan a restoration plan.
We would probably have to send it via snail mail to the company cos they would just delete email requests... Who is good at writing letters?? We need your help
I have thought of this approach too. I wouldn't know who to go to though. I wonder if anyone else has tried and what they got out of it. Not only would it be easier... it would be soooo much more accurate.
The Ford prints I donated all (well, three or so ) have been sent to me after one single email.. It works, but not every manufactors is this easy
Wow really, where did you find the email address(who did you contact?)
www.ford.nl (www.ford.com, whatever country you live in)
hmm i might contact mitsubishi for the earlier model evo prints. wish me luck. lol
this is a great idea mediaman i will try to tak sum photos of my car ASAP as i wish to model it and it is a rare R33 4door skyline
use a tripod.
hey ive been looking for 3rdgen f-body prints forever i own an 85 z28 but dont have a digital camera do you think you could use pics foun on google to make a print? id really apreciate it as im trying to make a model and its very hard to make from pics that are different angles and distances and just isnt coming out right
Project still going?
Is this still going on?
I have a digital camera and I'll do a picture of my cars.
I'd like to do my 1999 Dodge Caravan if you are interested in it. Are we able to get a copy of the blueprints once completed?
boy, I read all of the pages, instructions are simple, I have a few cars that I can take photos of, Cadillac Seville STS 95', 1975 Lincoln Continental Mark IV, to start, then I can take of 1981 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham, and 1978 mercury Grand Marquis. the condition of the last two are not pristine but are good for the basic shapes. when I get the images I will give them to you. Hope they will be useful.
I have an '81 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. Would you be willing to do this car? I can get all the photos. Thanks!
If you get me the pictures outlined in the front of this thread, I could do that.
'81 Olds Cutlass photos
Here are the photos for the '81 Olds Cutlass. I also included 2 photos of the entire car. Let me know if you need more pictures. Thanks!
Count me in too!. I can take photos of Honda civic/accord 2005, Caprice Classic, and others too
