I’ve never been able to get match photo to work properly and finally I have a project that should work since all I need to do is match up a construction trailer – it’s a fricken CUBE!! easy right…
So this is it, we need to build a platform connecting the 2 doors and a couple of steps up. Don’t even need a plan really for this but I thought I would finally get to show a model against a real life photo. However when I use the trailer to set the vanishing points I can never get the dimensions in ketchup to line up with the photo, to get the walls the proper length I need to change the vanishing points and then everything looks a little off.
I notice the photo I have the trailer vertical edge is not mathematically straight up, so I am wondering is there a way to rotate a match photo or align the blue axis? Or do I need to rotate photos prior to importing? Or is this not the problem at all, wth am I doing wrong?
I will attach a photo that shows the dimensions and my sketchup file for any body interested in poking at this. (Its important to note that the vertical measurement on the photo is from the level of the roof down to the level of the white insulation on the ground–not the actual trailer
