    A 3gee... in 3D??

    So, not sure what finally spurred it, but I finally got clicking over this past week's afternoons in Sketchup and started making my car(s)! I know Gran Turismo 4 is the only known title with a 3rd Gen Accord in it, but I've never had luck finding somewhere that has it as a download. So, I figured I'd do it myself! At the moment, it's a coupe. I'm considering later on making the hatch and sedan, but I can't make any promises, between swinging wrenches on my actual 3gees, lots of social events, work and all, I've found that I do most of my work here around midnight, so I don't get that much done! But that said, it's a ton of fun playing in Sketchup again, it used to be favorite past-time before cars came in a soaked up all my free time and I'll happily flaunt what I've done here: https://www.artstation.com/pixel-pencil But that's probably more exposition than necessary, so anyways, here we go!

    Here's day one, I found a blueprint of a hatch in the shop manual (and sedan!) but their wasn't one for the coupe, so I just merged a photo I took of the rear and side from a coupe and made it work!

    Re: A 3gee... in 3D??

    And this week brings us here, I'm not sure how much I want to build, I think I'll block in an interior and trunk, but I'm debating about the engine bay. I'm ultimately hoping to 3D print this as a shell, so full inside details arent important unless I REALLY dive into this project. HMMM But anyways, lots of bits changed, lots to go!

    And then I got to do what I really intended with this model; make it LOW.

    And model the details I intend to have my finished 3gee look like, Manaray Wheels, 3D printed spoiler, a lip. The sort!

    And that's where it's at for now! Stay tuned!

    This is great. Will this be available in the 3D library in SketchUp for anyone to import?

    I envision stuff like this in 10-15 years to have a public 3D drawings of the entire car and every part where any part including some gaskets can be 3D printed at home.

    ...although I am going to the yard tomorrow, if you want me to grab you an actual hood emblem for the cost of shipping it'd be no problem.

    Thanks, but I'm suuuuper picky about such things. I'll probably spend the next 2 years looking for one that's just perfect.

    ...Then I'll break it on the way home.
