This home was recently finished by my company. We design and build majority of our homes using SU. The homes we don’t draw but build are generally completed by architects using a variety of tools to complete their drawings.
The thing of it is I was not expecting the periscope to actually work, and still can’t quite believe that it actually does. What I mean is I didn’t expect to see real life mirror glass reflection properties in the model! Because I’m a n00b, and a pretty dumb one at that.
True. The mirrors are only reflective when rendered, but I’m still pleasantly surprised to see it, and not at all wasting time playing around with various mirror configurations like a toddler who has found some car keys. Nyuh-uh.
I did some sequences for work of the methodology of a complex pile installation and then some safety processes. It started out fairly low key then they decided to roll them out nationally across the business…
Thanks for sharing your work. Sharing is another challenge for me. May I ask what kind of computer you use? Is it 16 Gigs of RAM? SSD hard drive? 7th or 8th generation? I’m ‘battling’ with my own conviction to do detail in SketchUp.
Not sure what scale he is modelling in, buy looking at his model I would say his is a larger scale.
I model in 1/76 ish, which is OO/HO scale.
If you look on the loading dock there is a matchstick to give a better sense of scale.
I build sets and props for live theatre and use SU extensively in design and planning. We recently staged “The Addams Family Musicial” for which I used SU to design the set and several key props including the crossbow that Wednesday Addams shoots on stage. Safety is obviously critical on stage so I designed the crossbow to “shoot” but hide the bolt internally instead of sending it flying. The effect is completed by staging the effect of the shot separately across the stage; the audience accepts that they just couldn’t see it fly so fast.
