Google Sketchup Showcase!
« on: December 30, 2007, 11:48:55 am »
Who doesn't love Google Sketchup? It's such an awesome tool, and free at that!  :) Here are some of my creations, show me yours!


House Block - the idea is to cram the houses as tight as possible together whilst giving each one a garden or an out-doors space.



My dream house, I've planned the interior.  :)

I've never seen Google Sketchup before.  Will have to check it out.

I could never figure out how to use it so I'm impressed with your pictures. Well done.

Those look great! How long did it take you to make?

The House Block one was made through the course of many media classes, and the two other ones probably took a couple hours each.

I've been playing around with it a bit, with this as result:


It's a rather simple house, I know, but it wasn't that difficult to make, save for the camera getting annoying sometimes and the program carving blocks away when I didn't want it to.

ah yes, sketchup
one of the few programs i can fiddle around with without getting anywhere
I think I never saved a file in sketchup, i just created stuff, looked at it, thought: "cool stuff" and quit the program

The controls are too unprecise and long-winded though.
I'd be way faster creating something specific with Unigraphics NX4 than with SketchUp (except the texturing maybe)

anyway, nice work on those buildings

Very cool indeed :)

I use Revit Architecture at work, we briefly toyed with the idea of what program to use for 3D presentations etc, Sketch-up was one of the programs on the list.
Good Grief!
