You can use background images in the Modeller to help with modelling.

Custom background image with a blueprint of the car

Load a background image

  1. 1 Save a square PNG image (probably 1024x1024 or 2048x2048) in your data\bkg folder
  2. 2 Go into a 2D view (R/F/V etc.)
  3. 3 At the bottom right, click load bkg.
  4. 4 Select the image from the list in the dialog and click OK.

Adjust background image size and position

  1. 1 Click adjust then use the mouse to adjust the position and size.
  2. 2 After clicking adjust you can also click bkg scale to type in the scale.
  3. 3 Repeat the steps above for any of the other main 2D views.
  4. 4 Click save scm which saves the whole scheme of adjusted backgrounds so you can easily load it next time.

The "use opposite" option: for example on the left side it will use the right side image and position, automatically flipped.
