Need helps creating a camp layout

Post by westsideburns » Mon Aug 20, 2012 1:11 pm

I am creating a camp layout along with all the preparation this week. Omnigraffle seems like an easy digital tool for creating my layout. Due to my time constraints, I am hoping that somebody has vector images of carports, cars, RV, shower tents, tents, fire pits; and trailers. I have already google searched and no obvious results popped up; if I spent several hours searching, then I know something would appear. I would like to have a simple 2D top view; yet better the rectangle boxes. Omnigraffle could import simple AI vectors into its Stencil Library. Please let me know if you have any resources for vector graphics related to Burning man.

I've tried doing that, but by the time I get out there and try to follow my plans, I give up and just wing it. Angle of sun - check. Back generally to the south for wind - check. Neighbors I don't want to see - check. Neighbors I do want to see - check. Done.

Google Sketchup and if you search you will find someone already has models of tents/popups/generators/cars, etc. Due a search on "burning man" in the Sketchup library.
