I am attempting to measure the distance from the elephants head to the mirror. I know sketch up can be used to make models of buildings or rooms when some of the measurements are known by matching the photo and then making a model out of it.
I know the size of the mirror and the exact sizes of the elephants head.
I will be able to make a model of the elephants head which can then be fitted to the sketch up model once I have aligned it to the body. The problem for me is knowing if the perspective is correct. If I can get the right perspective I can then make a model of the elephant head and the mirror and then measure the distance between the two in sketch up.
When I upload this image I can match the horizontal red lines to the top and bottom of the mirror. The problem is the photo does not have a lot of depth that can be measured so I cannot place the green lines. But I can place the vertical blue lines to the vertical lines of the mirror. When I do this the green lines seem to fall into the correct place but I don’t know if this is actually correct.
To the sketch up community- Does this sound like a viable method? Is it possible to set the perspective correctly using the horizontal red and vertical blue guidelines and not the green?
