Free Bugatti Veyron Model

MichaƂ, a member of Konradus forum just shared his free Bugatti Veyron model. The first link in his post is a pdf file with parts, second - instructions.

Bugatti Veyron

Enjoy!

Yeah this was shared a few days ago at PM too.

It would be nice (meaning I would build it) if it didn't have all those fold lines all over it!
This model could easily be smoothed out with nice curves,
and all the visible fold lines removed.

The PDF file is locked so I can't edit it myself.
Oh well...I keep looking for another Veyron model.

I've found a way around locked pdf files. Just print it as another pdf, and the resulting file will be unlocked. I just tried printing the Veryon file with a trial copy of Pdf Factory, and it worked well. You may need to play with the settings, I lost a bit of resolution in the page I extracted as a test. Still, if you have to edit the fold lines out anyway...

It shows that I'm not following closely PM developments  ::)

Scott, you are not unlocking the file.
You are not removing the Editing Security that has been added.

You might aswell just export the thing as a bitmap or jpeg image.
You are flattening and rastering the file.
Thats also why you will lose image quality.

...

To all
The designer has put in place an editing lock, meaning that the file can not be imported
into a graphics editing program for modifications and the layers of artwork can not be altered.
This is a fair security option and should be respected.

For personal use, I see no problem with someone editing a file for their own build purposes
but there are many out there that will take advantage by redistributing the file or producing
a new model using this artist's work as a basis.

My comments about "why the fold lines?" are directed to the original artist and I think its he who
should fix the file.  This looks like a great model. But I don't personally want to see all the fold lines
and I personally don't think the model needs to be assembled with angular folds.

I would like to build this model, but I don't know that I have the time to edit the file for my own use.
If the file was not security protected and it would import into Corel
and the fold lines were on a separate layer that I could remove
then I might think about building the model.
As it stands, its not...
but thats okay.
I'm sure many others will enjoy building this model!

Ok, I understand, Dave, I never considered that. I don't have any programs that can import the contents of a pdf into their native format, so everything I've worked with extracted from one has been single layer anyway.

I did wonder myself why the designer built hs copy with all those hard folds, rather than curving the surfaces. I hadn't looked at the file or pictures closely enough to notice all those lines until you mentioned them.
