Digitalizing material pattern

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I need and info. We need to make a template for a special car (one off). We need to know which material we can use in order to create a pattern. Off corse we cannot use regular PPF to create the pattern.  (too expensive). I saw some video on youtube, do you know which material is that (pic) ? Looks like PPF but lighter

Thanks

Go to walmart and buy some drop cloth in the paint section, it's like a clear garbage bag material.  Use it to trace out your patter and take that template and put it over the PPF and cut it out. Should cost you all of $3 dollars.

I would like to know, too

That is a digitising tablet made by GTCO CalComp.

And it is ppf they are using, do as @XPEL Jeff says. 

Or if it is, as you say, a one off and you don't anticipate making any more templates, the much cheaper way would be to use application paper over the panel to be templated then transfer to the ppf and trim from there, much like a dressmaking pattern.
