Thanks for all the help so far but here’s the hard part. With all the help I have gotten to here (OK, a couple of bolts are still to do):
I would like to get a suggestion on how to create the buckler covering over the frame that looks like this:
Here is what the buckler looks like expanded:
I have measured plans for all the pieces of material. However, as this will be shown in a collapsed state, as in the photograph, I suspect I do not need to go that far. I need an approach for creating material draped over the frame.
I need to get something that starts out as a circle then goes to two ellipses (different size) connected by lines, with draping in between.
