I’m very new to SU…
I’d like to be able to use aerial images recorded with a drone to draw 2D roof plans.
This seems like it would be easy enough if I just knew how.
Ideally, I could go to a site, fly the drone up and take a straight down shot, measure one length for scaling, then import the image in SU and trace the (usually) simple outline of the roof, rooftop equipment, drains, etc.
In the little bit of experimentation I’ve done, when I trace a roof area it automatically fills in and covers the image. First specific question, how do I remove the fill from boxes and shapes drawn on the image? I just want outlines to show.
Second question, how (or in what order), do I go about scaling the image to match the reference measurement I took?
Should I be using match photo even though this is simple 2D?
