|Slicing, Dicing and Tabs|
If you are not familiar with Clever Models I will talk about them a bit. What you get are .pdf files which you print out and make you kit from those prints. The great thing about this process is that you can print as many copies as you wish. If you mess up you lose notihing but time. If you want a series of row-houses then that simply means you create more copies. If you want to modify the struture then .. well .. heck. It’s cardstock .. modifying the kit is as simple as using scissors.
To the left is pg.06 – the windows, doors and wood-work that make up the front of the building. Notice the extra doors and wood shapes. The idea is that you can print them off and then glue on top of the other parts. Creating layers like this moves the model from a flat model to one that is three-dimensional. On a separate page you have the stiles and muntins that make up the windows.
|I cut out the framing. Left the windows black without trying to do anything else .. this is a test run after all. I added tabs at various points .. again .. this was a test run of sorts and some of the locations of the tabs may be modified later.|
