Construction drawings from Subdivision

Recommended Posts

I have finally gained enough control with the subdivision tool to create the forms I want. Now I am trying to think about how best to 'deconstruct' that object into a drawing set to allow them to be constructed. Obviously I could just take a bunch of sections through it, but I'm wondering if there is something I'm missing.

- Does anyone have a process they have found successful?

It really depends on how it will be built.


2d section Contours are ideal if you're going to 2d CNC.

Jigsaw it and Export as STL for 3d Print
