AC3D – beginner tutorial – creating, moving, resizing. by acorvale. Ac3D Aircraft Modeling Tutorials: Cabin Window Frame. by Narendran. I just got AC3D, hoping to expand my ability of 3D modeling. I was wondering if some one could point out a few good tutorials to start learning. Hi guys, I got several questions about the airport design in AC3D. Here is my first video tutorial aerial image background in AC3D Hope you.

ac3 If it’s hard to see the pink lines, go the the settings menu, to the graphics tab, and then change “Size of display normals” to a higher value, e. Clayton, if you can get your files to me somehow your.

Rodeo – You’re a legend, thanks for tutoriall Here is the folder you sent me, with the corrected files inside: Those are the coordinates you then need to place in your. Hi Clayton, That looks good so far. We will improve the ‘video tutorials’ section over time but I wanted to get it up there as a start.

Here’s a picture of my mesh which may help explain the above. I must have had it confused with something I read in a different tutorial. There may be a better way to do this–I’m not sure. The x-axis in ac3d points to the north in aerofly, therefore you must rotate it before exporting.

Here is my first video tutorial aerial image background in AC3D. This was definitely the most difficult thing I encountered with the runway I modeled.

The pink lines those are the normals should come ‘up’ from your runway, not point below it. The following tutorials are under preparation.

There are a lot of ways this can happen: However, it can also create issues with selecting what you intend to select in the 3D view, as you’ll see at the end of my video when I was trying to correct the surface normals Actually his video explains exactly what I said here quite clearly, sorry about that! That looks good so far. I’m not sure what you mean by innermost vertices though? Note that I made a mistake at the very beginning — I still had “select through” enabled, and when I intended to select the surface under my mouse cursor, it for some reason selected a surface off-screen and I didn’t notice.


I take it there is rotational misalignment, not just a shift due to centre point differences? I hope that wasn’t too confusing. I hope that helps! As you can see the runway is as per the background image, image sourced from fset but when i put it in the sim it is not overlaid under the original runway, see pictures a few posts up.

You’ll see me hunting around for it at the end and finally finding it and fixing it. It doesn’t matter if your decals overlap, just make sure the runway object surfaces do not. Here is my first video tutorial aerial image background in AC3D Hope you find it clear and useful. In Rodeo’s video tutorial he explained a great way to do all of this so you don’t actually have to understand exactly what the reference point’s meaning really is, and that works well if you’re careful not to move your objects away from that original reference point.

I figured out the reference point and placed the reference point into the airport tsc file, i ran fset and got the texture file into ac3d and also obtain the sq metres area from fset, i converted the nautical miles from fset to metres that gave me 1.

I re-read and saw you said you were also stuck on rotation.

But, the coordinates in your. I think this is all of them. Hi Clayton, I got it working for you. Either add completely new objects or merge the existing kdwh airport into it and then modify it. I think showing examples of this rather than trying to type it out will make it a lot clearer! Again, it seems confusing but tutorixl actually very simple. In the model your reference point was here I circled it in red av3d make it clearer, it’s the small white crosshairs: Maybe I’ll make a video to describe this too.


Hi, I finished another version of the background tutorial.

It does get a bit tricky, but I think I have tried just about every possible way of doing this now and this seemed to be best unless your runway geometry is very simple: And here are the already-converted files that you can load directly into Aerofly if you want: Another thing to be careful of is make sure that all your surface normal point the correct tutoiral — you can check this by turning on “Normals” in the 2D and 3D menus, and then looking at the different viewports.

Can i now add 3d objects to this and export tgi files as explained in the A3CD download on making your own airport? Can you do another video tutorial showing a more advanced form of runway mesh cutout? It’s not as good as the stuff Rodeo makes and there’s no audio, but hopefully it helps: I also tried yutorial the Boolean operations and the knife command after extruding the cutting surfaces, as well as the fill holes command, and none of them could quite make this work without other issues.

I know the sunken ground problem. You have a major orientation problem at some point. They have also been added to our wiki to make things easier. Is it 90 degrees out, or is it out by the approximate tutoriaal you rotated for mesh alignment?

So if you have several contiguous areas like I did, you’ll have to repeat this operation on all of them. Also re-mapped your runway texture so it repeats and keeps the resolution of the texture crisp.
