I will seek out the thread with rajaa. Any idea where it is ? panelling…sounds like rivet territory
Its to provide dimensions to panel lines and rivets for creation of a full size aircraft replica.
Establish the usual plan type placement, always drawn in aviation world on an imaginary line down aircraft item centre, in our case we call it Cplane, with Cplane on aircraft datum.
Then the rivets are projected to port and stbd skins, giving the pattern and showing any non symetrical patterns of rivets and panels etc., so dims can be taken on skin and plotted on the replications skin, as its far easier working on skin with a tape measure !
Is Grasshopper better at working with engineering drawings and circles etc and drawing up aircraft ?
I google grasshopper rhino and see nothing that says cars ships aircraft etc. Wierd shapes and numbers with lines between.
Having declared I need to build aircraft from ancient engineering drawings as well as modelling items and been told Rhino would suit me, what would grasshopper enable me to do I cant do in Rhino. Google images grasshopper is stuff miles removed from my subject matter, some very wierd stuff there.
