Is there a crowdcast link already?
Did you ever use Fusion 360? Do you think Sketchup has the same possibilities as fusion 360 for designing product?
Liam, Great job today, awesome work and thank you. You did a fantastic job with all the questions too!. Have a great day.
Liam, I am a fan of your illustration style, thank for sharing it with us.
All products need to (generally speaking) have an engineering file that needs to be CAD so no you cant make that file in SketchUp. However you can design it in SketchUp no problem and make the surfaces elsewhere later.
Generally designers don’t worry about these things we leave it to the surface modellers and engineers. Industrial designers are generally proficient in both areas, so it depends on what you want to do. I have never worked with NURBS.
thanks for the the reply and presentation. You are doing amazing art work.
I’ve used SU for years to do the “front-end” modeling for museum, entertainment, live events, exhibits, and theme park venues. I have yet to get the industry to move over to SU for the construction documents (even though SU is totally capable of it). For that most clients prefer AutoCAD. I love seeing the things SU can do and being able to point to them when I’m making SU’s case. Thanks to the current apocalypse I’m currently freelancing as well. Thanks Liam.
#1 think I didn’t expect to learn from today: I didn’t know Ron Cobb passed away, just this September, apparently.
Yes sorry man, I know that you had ties with him through the family
I knew him through my sister and brother in law in the late '80’s and early '90’s. I hadn’t seen him in years though. I asked my sister about him in 2018 while out for 3D Basecamp. She said he lived in Australia now and she hadn’t seen him recently either.
So, how do you go from SketchUp on a computer to Procreate on the iPad? I.e., export format, import format file transfer etc.
I generally use SketchUp > Photoshop on PC, then Open in Photoshop on the iPad and save locally, then open in Procreate.
Or just save the two PNG images from SketchUp to GoogleDrive and open on the iPad, save locally and open in Procreate.
If I don’t need Photoshop I tend to avoid it and go straight to Procreate.
And you export multiple versions to build up in layers, yes? So, it’s like many files combined?
Just two, one for shadows and one for linework.
Howdy Liam, Thanks for the presentation! Your work is great! I have been wanting make my presentation drawings look better and you way looks really good. Do you use the Apple Pencil for sketching and do you ever use a spacemouse? All the best, Steve
Yes I do use the apple pencil only on the iPad and although I do have a space mouse I tend to use my Wacom (the screen in front of me today was an upright Cintiq).
SInce using a tablet/stylus I rarely use the spacemouse.Just for manual camera work in Blende (or whatever else is useful for a more organic camera movement).
Did you ever break the cintiq? My sister has her third!
