• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Blender 2.70, Blender2FSX Tools (Video Tutorials)

I have been in CAD for years, mainly drawing 2D houses. I have TurboCAD Pro Platinum. I had never grasped how I would create an actual rounded fuselage of a say 777 nose section in CAD. I watched the video's hoping to get a handle on how I would go about doing that with Blender, but drawing a square tubed plane never hit on how I would get that shaped. All I need really is the nose section for the cockpit area.
I have been working on doing a Boeing 777 cockpit so I can add a cockpit that is more to my liking to the 777-9X. I have some scale drawings of the nose section from the outside of a 777-300. They are saved from CAD in PNG format. From tip of nose to back wall of cockpit is 13.619117 feet. thanks for any help in showing me even where I would start on this in Blender

Thanks

So far this is my progress with the cockpit. After I get this down and get more information on the 777-9X cockpit I want to attempt to get a true cockpit for it. Would also like to move on to doing a 767 cockpit for the freeware 767 to give it a cockpit it deserves. I threw in a picture of it imported into Blender.

I am starting to get this now, if I'll stop forgetting to limit my scale to the axis I want to scale. I might already be done if it were not for forgetting that one thing. I get it looking good from the left view and move to top, get the top looking good and go to have a look at it in 3D....every other 2 I guess I forget. Fix it and move on.
