Can camera obscura be demonstrated in SketchUp?



I am helping my son do a presentation for school on the history of the camera. We were looking for a way to illustrate it strictly from the computer rather than real life. Does anyone know camera obscura has been tried on sketchup and if not, if it could possibly work in theory.


You could make a model that looks like one and shows how they work but there’s no way for it to really project an image through a pin hole.

Could you not make a real one? They aren’t at all difficult to make and it could be passed around the room.


You could make an illustration as @DaveRmentioned, but as there are no rays of light in SketchUp, the actual phenomenon would not happen.


thanks, I appreciate your responses. However, he did end up making an illustration for his report.
