Shaping problems / measuring tools
By quickly massing out my bodywork i began to take more measurements to ensure placement of smaller grooves and curves were falling in the correct place. I used a rig over the top of the Sculpt made by a former graduate of this course along with a set of large calipers i made to take measurements where necessary. Because i could use the CNC to cut my blue foam maquette there are areas of the model that are unseen by the latter method used. areas such as the bonnet, windscreen, and rear curvatures of the car to name a few have been uncaptured by the use of 3 dimensions when cutting the blue foam and have had to be altered by stripping the clay back and amending the blue foam basis.
