The racks that we produce are scribed to suit the particular model of van to follow the contours of the sides of the van, we then transfer Cartesian style coordinates manually into SketchUp.
We are exploring the possibility of scanning the internal surfaces of various vans in order to create models in 3-D. From these scans we want to import into SketchUp then take section slices at various points along the model, normally front middle and back.
Whilst we haven’t spent much time exploring this yet, our first attempts haven’t been very successful as the scanning and export seems to create a very complex mesh which is difficult to load and manipulate inside sketchup.
If anyone has experience or suggestions on a way o o this reasonably economically that would be great.
Thanks in anticipation
