Hi every body. I would like to say thank you very much in advance for reading this tutorial and sorry for my bad English. This is first part of my tutorial series on how to set up reference image in catia v5 Then you can take reference easily inside Catia environment. I have divided this tutorial in to three phases. So let us start the first phase.

Phase 1. Finding Reference image:

First of all we need a orthographic image. There are few sites from where you can download the orthographic images in free. Some links I have given bellow
www.the-blueprints.com
www.suurland.com
The image should contain four orthographic views (top view, front view, rare view and side view).The more input you will get the more accurate 3d model you can make. After spending a lot of time in searching reference images finally I decided that I will start the model of my favorite BMW-concept x6.
We also need some reference isometric images because these needs for exact visualization and Which will gives us more clear ideas.  you can download these images from www.netcarshow.com/.
