    Default Military Aircraft

    Hi guys. New to this site. A little background..I am a surveyor working for a company over in Iraq and I have been tasked with coming up with a plan for an emergency heli-pad. On this pad I have to show an accurate representation of a couple of aircraft (helicopters). I have found 1 block but I am having trouble locating another one. The one that I am looking for is the Boeing CH 47 Chinook. I am only looking for a plan view of this aircraft. Thank you in advanced for your input, help and guidance.

    Welcome to the CADTutor forum combatvet69.

    2D or 3D?

    You might try the CAD Block Exchange Network (cben), the CAD Forum or www.draftsperson.net for free blocks.

    My next recommendation would be to go to TurboSquid and find the helicopter in 3D. This is going to cost you though. Pricing varies. Once you have the 3D version you can extract all the 2D views you need.

    Another option would be to find a plan view image, bring it into AutoCAD, and trace over it.

    Mostly do drafting related to manufacturing. From doing site layouts with proposed updates, additions and renovations to be budgeted and submitted for bid, to updating and changing existing drawings to reflect maintenance and repair/revision work done on site.

    SLW210: Very interesting site. Have you ever purchased vector drawings from it?

    Things have come a long way. Back in my day, they'd just blow off the top of a hill or use a Dasiy Cutter in the jungle, , there's yer helipad.
    Here's a FREE download of the Chinook http://aircraftdrawingsdownload.com/...k_drawings.php

    You need to know what to google for.

    We who digs airplanes have been calling them 3 view drawings since they were made of stone. Almost every (Unclassified) plane ever built is available in a 3 view drawing, some even in CAD.

    EDIT: If ya use my construction method, wear your safety glasses.
