Creating a Model from Technical Drawings

  • Hopefully this may help someone looking to create models in MC from technical drawings.

    If you are wanting create an item from technical drawings you can start with an object such as a cube.

    In this case I knew the length of the object to create was 288mm. Depth of 1.6mm. Height of 44mm. So that became my cube's dimensions.

    I then imported a png of the particular technical drawing I was working with.

    I set the cube to be transparent. (By setting the cube as a support.)

    I then scaled the drawing to match that of my cube.

    Then added the objects of the correct sizes and shapes to duplicate
