How do complex 3D models (like cars) originate?


Recommended Posts

I have a lot of experience in surface modeling architectural type shapes, and I have played a bit with solids, nurbs, Rhino, Sketchup etc. But I am blown away by the accuracy of some models I have seen, especially cars. I can understand how they are built, but where do the model builders get the info about the shape and dimensions? Do they laser scan an actual car or do they get the points from the original manufacturer's designs?
