am a newbie  to this community and a beginner  with dimension so be gentle!

I am trying to find a way using dimension to create the 2d cut out shapes that can then be curved to make fuselage panels.

I have found some already made ones  with cut out formers included but they aren’t very accurate  when scaled up

I can make accurate formers and using  the  elevation plans I know the overall dimensions of these pieces.

so is it possible using dimension  to make the 2d  shapes that can then be bent to make the fuselage pieces?

 

Can  anyone help or point me to a thread where someone has done this already 

 

Thanks in advance

Dimension is the wrong tool for this... I would use Photoshop but you prob are better to learn Blender
