1933 Chevy 5 window coupe

video



This is the current place on the work on the 33 Chevy. As you might see there is still several areas that need finishing. The intersection of the compound curve areas need to be solved as well as other intersections of the model. Again I am looking for input on how these problems might be solved. I have solved similar problems on the Airstream work. In the Airstream projects I solved these problems by drawing in 3D a single point and line at a time. Similar to what one might do if they were working in Maya or other 3d software. My challenge here is to find ways to solve these type of drawing problems in SketchUp using SketchUp tools. All suggestions and or examples would be appreciated.

Compound Curves 33 Chevy

video
This video shows my current work in SketchUp on a 1933 Chevy Master 5 window coupe. This car has several compound curves through out it's design. The top of the car show in this video is a simple compound curve created from two curve surfaces. However this car has compound curves created by the intersection of three simple curves. This has presented a challenge for SketchUp design. I will be sharing my attempts to solve this problem. There will be more demos showing my attempts and possible solutions. I would like input for any of my followers or anyone else.

Sculpture Stand

This is a Sculpture stand I just designed after looking at other examples. It's been a while since I've done some clay sculpture work. So I thought I'd get started again. Hopefully I'll have something to display in my Art Blog before too many months.
