    This evening when I got home from work I could'nt waith to start assembling my giant jigsaw puzzle. Spent about 45 minutes glueing some bits together.
    So far so good, fitting perfectly together.

    Here is a photo showing a little more progress. Hopefully I can make some serious headway with the buck by the end of the weekend.

    Just curious. How did you make the buck sections and What cad program did you use? if you don't mind sharing for the people who want to learn more about making bucks.

    thanks

    I draw the car and design the buck in Rhino 3Dand then make the tool paths that the machine uses in Artcam.

    Here is a little more progress this evening. Decided to assemble the nose as it needs to be done seperately.

    Hi Petrolheadsa,

    How do you get the jigsaw-pattern out of Rhino ( first i thought you used sketchup ) ???
    Nice work. I do the same in 3ds max but only slicing the model to get out the pattern for a positive fibreglass mold ?

    regards, Bryan

    Hi Bryan. Once I have created the surface I draw each individual piece. The tricky bit is making sure it can actually be assembled in reality and will stay together and be rigid. Cheers Kevin
