    He mentioned boatbuilders in this clip but made a 2D shape. It was impressive how it worked, but I'd like to see how 3D objects can be plotted with this method, if at all.
    How to 3D this concept?

    I reckon you would have to make all sides this way and build the model then measure and or use a sliding bevel to get the 3D angles.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Looks great for straight lines, thinking it will not be great if you got some curves in your shape

    That's where you just get as many datums as you think would be required along the curved edges

    I was thinking about this, and came up with a solution for 3D. If you could get an old transistor radio extendable antenna, you could mount it on the tick stick. When you make the base outline, swivel and extend the antenna to the 3D point. Measure the angle and length and write it in that traced outline. Simples.

    I get that, I really do. But how do you then cut it from virgin material? You can't just get around with vertival cuts, it will be all wrong. It needs to be cut at respective angles through the material. I can get no further than that though. Plenty of better brains around than mine!

    It would be pretty easy mate. Using the tick stick and just ploy the curve . Yes you would have to join the dots but with 6 or 8 plots you'd be done. Infact use the full tick stick for the important corners and just the head only along the curve line. This would make very light work of it.
