I think the hashtag “bestbusever” does not work.

Try it without the #


That work!

hello, great challenge, but have a question, we have to model all the pieces we gonna use on our bus right? but in the background we can use objects of the warehouse.?
thanks #bestbusever

You can use anything you like! Just so long as you model it in SketchUp!

Just a reminder… this is a great opportunity to earn some great SketchUp gear! Get your models uploaded today!


It looks like I got into this challenge a bit late… While I’m not submitting this as an entry, the images below are my opinion on buses in general. :smile:

even if you are a little late, you have 16 days left before the end of the challenge :smile:

One more question. Is the bus allowed to “infringe” on copyrights (like if I wanted to put a logo or album cover on it)?


(For instance, this could be the theme of one of my buses)

Well I dont think there are any copyright on 3dW
or rather I hope not :sweat_smile:
