Each section from the 3dmodel is made of small straight lines that have to be manually redone with Bezier curves for a cleaned up result. The sections are temporarily extruded and a 3d buck is submitted to the client in Autodesk Viewer for a general appraisal. Each section is ID'd by a number or brief description cut in it.
Examples of 3dmodels and their bucks i have made can be found here.

Hi Dan,

I would be interested in full size buck drawings you have for a Maserati 300S. Should I email you, or you can contact me at

Nice work,

Thanks, Bill

One thing which may be overlooked is to make sure your model is accurate. If you are talking about a model car etc it is my understanding that in some cases the proportions are changed during the scaling down process allowing the model look proportional in its scaled down version. If it is then scaled up you might find the proportion are off. Ie a roof that is 6"too high or a buck that is 1 ft longer than the original.
