Avatars of SketchUp personel

After seeing all the Trimble/ SketchUp personel’s avatars at BaseCamp I’m looking for tips for a tutorial on how to create one of my own… any help would be greatly appreciated!

These ?

Some are the default letters (generated by the Discourse forum engine,) some are headshot (selfie) images, some are something else, and some are those cartoon-like people with no faces (that creep me out.)

Tyson Kartchner explains how to make 2D Face Me Components in this 2008 3D Basecamp session…

And here’s another 2D Face Me Component video tutorial.

Geo,
Yup, that’s exactly what I’m looking for! Thanks for the quick reply. BTW
We met briefly just the other day after Sarah Pirila’s presentation on
Wednesday morning of Basecamp… and now here you are answering my
question. How cool is THAT?!

Thank you again,
Regards,

Matt Jackson

Hi Dan,

I’m new to this forum and wanted to thank you for your reply to my question too. The 2D avatars you cite are just what I was asking about. I want to generate one of the faceless cartoons of myself… I hope it doesn’t creep you out too much when it ‘comes alive’ :anguished:

:scream_cat: AHhhhHHhhhh!.. (runs away…)
