Flow Illustrator car templates!

If you don't have Flow Illustrator download it here. PC only at this point. Be sure to set Incoming Velocity to 120 and Viscosity to 45.



Let's start here.

*I have made every effort to make these accurate, including the underbody. Though I have traced them over blueprints, they will not be exact.

1988-1994
Suzuki Cultus/Swift
Geo Metro 3dr hatchback


1988-1991
Honda CRX


1969-1978
Nissan Fairlady S30
Datsun 240Z/260Z/280Z


1964-1966
Ford F100 styleside shortbed


1988-1992
Ford Probe, modified with grille blocks, air dam and partial belly pans


TO USE THESE:
Save them to your computer. Open that file in a program like MS Paint (it will be a JPEG-unusable in Flow Illustrator). Make your modifications. Save as 24 bit Bitmap (BMP).


If you'd like a side view of your car, let me know the year, make and model, number of doors etc. and I can whip it up for you.


.

.

For help with the shape of kammbacks and boattails, scale this aero template so the ground is at the ground plane and the top of the template is at the highest point of your car.

I downloaded it, have to read how to use it, might never use it at the rate I adapt to new things though.

New thread - good idea.

I'm looking forward to downloading the standalone version soon. For now I'm on dialup low-band so that's have to wait. But, once I get a round tuit I'd love to run Phil's template and a cylinder as baseline geometries for reference. In the real world first simulations validate the modeling tools; then experiment with different geometries. Anyone else game for this? (wink)

It's super easy.

Hit enter, 0, enter. Type in the full location of the file, for instance, c:\users\john\desktop\carpicture.bmp. Make sure to use backslashes.

(If you open the folder in Explorer/My Computer you can see the file location at the top)

Press enter. Set the top (or left) slider to 120, and the other to 45.

Done!

To exit or open a different file, close out of the window you typed in.

You can use a free program called GIMP to overlay things, but it takes a little getting used to. I have Photoshop though so that works even better.

Toyota Corolla 1991-1995 sedan

Oof, I feel sorry for you using dialup!

Feel free to run whatever you want and report back with results!

By the way if anyone wants to make their own, I get most of my blueprints from The-Blueprints.com - The largest free blueprint collection on the Internet but also get a few from Flickr when people scan in old spec sheets. Blueprints for things like the F100 are hard to find.

Any chance you could do the 2000-2006 Honda Insight? It is similar to the CRX but smoother. You can find an outline drawing at this location:

InsightCentral.net - Encyclopedia - Honda Insight Scale Drawings

I'd love to give it a try!
