computer Drawings for body mods, painting, dent locations, etc.

Recommended Posts

I scanned these from a book and spent hours cleaning them up.

1) Put them in "paint" or some other (programming) and make a master piece.

2) Print them out and use then in the shop for....

dent locations, body modifications, see your car with tinted windows etc, etc.

Do what you want with them, Have the kids color them in while deviously planning their future in the Z-car era.:cheeky:

Hi guys,

There have been some discussion and some progress on CAD drawings for the early Z series. 26th-Z has actually done some work on it (and some others as well). Check out these threads:

Figured I'd refresh this to see if any one was interested.

Your more likely to remember you need something if you see it every once in a while.

I have a copy of the .DWG file (attached) -- Credit: 26th-Z created this one. But, it's only the top view. I'd like to see the front and sides done as well. Even better -- a whole wireframe done in 3D.

I don't have anything in my arsenal to open a "DWG" file

What do I use to open it??

Does it have to be DWG or can it be converted to JPG OR BMP?

I believe you need AutoCAD to open a .DWG file.

i printed the CAD file to a pdf file so you can see what it looks like (assuming you have Acrobat reader). I'm not skilled enough in AutoCAD to figure out how to convert the DWG into a JPG or BMP. I could however, print the CAD file and scan it as a jpg if you want.

I see it now, But I don't think it needs any help or cleanup.

Looks good, and the reason I mentioned the conversion thing is, I may not be the only one who could'nt see it.

I can use it though, Thanks

Dave

Yep AutoCAD does .dwg files but that PDF looks very cool.

Keep up the good work :)

Thanks!

I know this is old, but this might be helpful...

click on this link for a free downloadable autocad viewer....

http://www.edrawingsviewer.com/pages/programs/download/index.html

there are options, but if you just click the 'view autocad' about half way down on the selections, then click the button on the bottom...

Enjoy.
