CAD drawings/models?

I'm an architect that constantly has to put pictures of cars in 2D & 3D drawings. I want to put my car in these (an '02 147). Anyone ever made a 2D or 3D CAD model of a 147? It would be another way of saying 'up yours' to my colleagues who keep asking which bits of my car fell off on the way to work.

Re: CAD drawings/models?

A friend who I used to work with traced a picture of his Audi TT after inserting a raster image into AutoCAD then altered the scale to some real life dimensions he took.

The results were pretty good.

Awesome site - love the tanks. If only I could think of a way to incorporate them into lighting designs!

Cheers Barry for giving me the best laugh I've had all day!

I'd love to use that in one of my drawings but there's not much call for a naked dancing lady in a civil/structural CAD drawing!

i do the exact same thing haha, its quite easy to trace if you cant find anything, i always use a 159 and a fiat 500 for smaller spaces. the best blocks have all three angles. this has some good ones...

I had a go at modelling my own house using Sketchup. Still some work to do on it but I found a nice model of a GTV to use!
