..you start at the beginning.. with pictures (your ortho photos).. adding profiles and building lofts/boundaries/sweeps/...
There are plenty of 3D scanners out there that can scan this object, create the point-cloud data and then translate that into any number of outputs.
Try one of those...
Surfaces would be my starting point. Will you be manufacturing this chair or is it for modeling purposes only or are you looking for a manufacturer? Here I do furniture every day and I have done a few overstuffed pillow projects.
If you're manufacturing the chair then I would develop the frame first and then build up the cushions, lot of sketches and a lot of work, good luck.
Paul it would be to much to ask if you send me that solidworks file? I'm using the 2014 version. If you could do that It would be great. Thanks in advance! Great answer!
If Paul Salvador does send you the model, don't forget his design commision if and when you sell a thousand
Nuno... I personally think it would be better to work through it or on your own... it's really not that hard to do... I'll post a pic and video showing the loft/boundry/sweep..
That's brilliant. Surfacing is something Id love to learn.
Id love to take a peek at your file if you are willing to share
Nicely done Paul
You are far too kind (or have too much free time ) I would have just explained the process or tools that he could have used to create the model but you actually spent the time to create the model of the entire thing!
I'll be needing to sit down and figure out what I need Paul to do for me as well
Nice work Paul!
Ditto on Paul's approach.
Here is a similar approach - however, instead of a picture I had a physical part to build the supporting assembly around. I mapped several points to drive the sketch curves.
AND, I'm not much of a surfaces guy. So if I can do it...
Along with the seat back and head box...
Daen Hendrickson, what plane is that for? Nicely done!
This goes in our F16 Sim. Knock-off of an ACES II.
