Schöne renderings, wie immer @Cotty. Did you use the RoundCorner for the beveled edges or is it from the render engine?
In the model, they are 80mm wide
Yes, all edges are beveled with that great plugin. Other used plugins: SketchUV, Mirror, TrimAndKeep (Yes, Dave, I’ve used it )
Hi there may I ask how to combine su lines to the rendered image, what process do you make for that ? BTW Amazing work you have here.
Hey there. The general idea is to export a normal Hidden Line style from SketchUp (same ratio as the render). And then in a photo editing software (Photoshop for example), combine the 2 together and put the Hidden Line photo into “Multiply” mode.
Thanks man, really appreciate the help. I’ll try that later…thanks again.
I downloaded the model but think it needs to be glued together?

Nice. You just need some end grain material.
Thanks. The wood is from a mega mammoth tree so the age rings of the tree are nearly straight
Nice piece of art, and so is your model. But I seriously doubt that there is/will be much practical use for this approach. Way too much work/difficult to make. But even more important is the lack of strenght compared to the more traditional dovetail forms there are.
@Wo3Dan the skill involved and the delightful impracticality of it gives it purpose. What is the joy of craftsmanship without the miraculously impractical?
Makes me think,
Pessimist = half empty
Optimist = half full
Wo3dan = glass is the wrong size
jimhami42 = FREE GLASS!
I just blew coffee onto my keyboard!
I’ve seen that joint written up as a puzzle: “How did he make this? Is it a trick? How do you put it together?” with a photo of the real thing. But I don’t think it has any functional value as a joint, it’s an intellectual/artistic effort!
Oh come on, this is strolling into the realm of a ‘No new features’ thread.
If we as a group can’t enjoy complex simplicity, who can.
Was that directed at me? If so, oh come on yourself! Since when does saying the value of something is as an intellectual/artistic effort imply it has no value, can’t be enjoyed for its “complex simplicity”, or shouldn’t be pursued (as the reference to the “no new features” thread implies)? If I choose not to put elegant art glass (at $250/sq ft) into my windows, does that mean I don’t appreciate or value it for its beauty? Besides, my main point was that I’ve actually seen photos of that joint in the flesh, not just as a SketchUp model.
I wish to refere to the first sentence of my post and i would also like to refere to @slbaumgartner’s second post as a reply to you. I didn’t nor do disapprove of @Cotty’s art and/or the original art.
Don’t make this into another ‘No new features’ thread.
Sorry guys, without the “But it’s not Practical” bit, your posts would have been spot on, so why throw in the negative bit, that’s all I was getting at.
