Tengel07's wip project: 1970 Porsche 908/03

Lookin’ good! You are sure getting your quads down pat.

Great side by side comparison. The first one was impressive to begin with, and second even better.

Weekly progress:
Rear hood extended with tunnels for the gearbox cooling
Front and rear Stabiliser
Seatbelt
Brake callipers redesign

Render made with not subdivided model.

Are you going to 3D print a model at some point?

Such impressive work!
If you are ever on Facebook, feel free to share with us in the Trimble SketchUp Group. This would definitely raise some eyebrows.

The details you are adding are fantastic. This is similar to the type of mechanical modeling that I do with SketchUp, so I love it! :slight_smile:

I have only reference pictures - that makes it not so easy to find the right dimensions. It’s the 4th version of the engine design - after i got a large set of pictures of a restored engine.

Simply stunning! If you don’t mind my asking , how big is the file and how many hours do you think you have in the model so far?

Indeed, this can be very challenging. For my project (Viking '75 Mars lander) I have been fortunate enough to have personally captured over 1000 detail measurements from actual hardware, I have found some published measurements, plus eight years ago I purchased a nice set of blueprints with dimensions that cover important areas. Even with all of that, I think I spend more time in Photoshop trying to work out “intermediate” measurements from my 3500 detail photographs of the hardware than I do in SketchUp actually working on geometry. My overall subject needs tens of thousands of detail measurements; your subject probably does also. Imagine the shop drawings used to fabricate your car’s engine block. It would probably have hundreds of measurements just there. We have chosen complicated subjects, I guess. :slight_smile:
