A slide show of a house I'm working on and couple of photos of the gate I made in Shetchup with twisted iron and a twisted cage. If you hover over the 3d view with your curser click and hold you can rotate the 3d view.





Unfortunately after I completed the gate and closed SU the next time I opened it the file caused my computer to crash so this the only chance to see the gate finished.

Spiral staircase plugin

So I got some new plugins for SketchUp and just wanted to do a short video to show one of the many tools included in these toolbars. This one is for drawing spiral staircases in three easy moves. It from the folks at Quarr IT and on the website you will see the link for ruby scripts they call them SCF toolbars so I wanted to give credit where credit is due especially since they offer them for free.

Well hope you enjoyed that

Completed house in SketchUp

This is a house plan I have been working on for a while now. It was drawn using SketchUp and a few plug- ins I have one of which is house builder (credit goes to D. Bur). It actually builds walls, floors and a gable roof. There are several different layers to see the floor plan, walls,an roof. It was done for a friend that supplied the plans and will some day be built. Hopefully. you can click on the link to go to my 3D Warehouse and download it in to SketchUp if you have it on your PC. If not your missing out.
If you do and your unfamiliar with SU you can simply go to View and animation to go threw the different scenes.
Link is here Thanks for Looking.

SketchUp 1

I've been recently learning SU a program to do 3D modeling I've used it before without much success. Until I ran across a video tutorial. This fellow taught me more than basics of modeling but more importantly how to organize the model in such a way that it becomes easier to do some actions and developing into more complex modeling. Some of my models are at the Google 3D Warehouse .. you can clink on either on to go to the link.

This a little video i recorded as a test for some new software i downloaded for free.
I'll be posting new stuff I learn here. So if you know how to subscribe to a RSS feed then you can do so.
To see what progress I'm making. Thanks
