Fun challenge: The Cube

I am having a bit of fun with this tool… Give this a try: Add only a single cube to your modeling space and then try to create something from that using only the prompts and the styles in SketchUp Diffusion. This is a great way to explore prompt design. (And admittedly I based this on something that the Blender community has been doing for a while.)

I started with this:

And got these:


Prompt: “A floating, death star spacecraft over a desolate landscape”
No style used


Prompt: “A display box over a stadium”
No style used


Prompt: “A stone sculpture in a lush, tropical forest”
No style used

Add yours below…

That stadium with 3 event fields is quite interesting.

I know, right? And that sky hook for the cube must be MASSIVE!

Prompt: Generate a highly detailed, ultra-high-resolution image that artistically reimagines the iconic Monolith from the movie ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’. The Monolith should be visualized as a perfect, smooth, black cube, reflecting its mysterious and enigmatic qualities. The scene should be set in a surreal, otherworldly landscape that pays homage to the movie’s aesthetic, with a focus on sharp contrasts, deep shadows, and striking lighting effects to highlight the Monolith’s imposing presence. The image should be rendered in 8K quality to capture the intricate details and textures, ensuring a photorealistic and immersive visual experience. Emphasize the Monolith’s smooth, reflective surface, and its profound impact on the surrounding.

"On a dark desert highway
Cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas
Rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance
I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night

There she stood in the doorway
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinkin’ to myself
“This could be heaven or this could be hell”
Then she lit up a candle
And she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor
I thought I heard them say

“Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year (any time of year)
You can find it here”

Welcome to the jungle
We got fun and games
We got everything you want
Honey, we know the names

We are the people that can find
Whatever you may need
If you got no money, honey
We got your disease

In the jungle, welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your knees, knees
Ooh-ah, I wanna watch you bleed

Welcome to the jungle
We take it day by day
If you want it, you’re gonna bleed
But that’s the price you pay

Standing there alone, the ship is waiting
All systems are go, are you sure?
Control is not convinced, but the computer
Has the evidence, no need to abort
The countdown starts

Watching in a trance, the crew is certain
Nothing left to chance, all is working
Trying to relax up in the capsule
"Send me up a drink, " jokes Major Tom
The count goes on

Four, three, two, one

Earth below us, drifting, falling
Floating weightless, calling, calling home

Second stage is cut, we’re now in orbit
Stabilizers up, running perfect
Starting to collect requested data
“What will it affect when all is done?”
Thinks Major Tom

Back at ground control, there is a problem
Go to rockets full, not responding
“Hello Major Tom, are you receiving?
Turn the thrusters on, we’re standing by”
There’s no reply

Prompt:
Generate a highly detailed, photorealistic image of a sleek, futuristic batmobile and a figure in a modern, tactical costume, situated in an expansive, cavernous cave setting. The vehicle should resemble a high-end supercar with a unique, non-branded design, featuring cutting-edge technology and a striking, aerodynamic shape. It should exude a sense of speed and power, even while stationary. The figure beside it should be dressed in a tactical outfit that suggests a vigilante persona, with a design that is distinct and original, avoiding any direct resemblance to known superheroes. The cave environment should be expansive and naturally rugged, with elements of advanced technology seamlessly integrated, such as high-tech computer consoles and sophisticated equipment scattered around. The lighting should be dramatic and atmospheric, casting focused beams on the vehicle and figure, creating a sharp contrast with the shadowy cave surroundings. The overall scene should capture a sense of mystery and readiness for action, blending the themes of nature’s raw power with human-made technology. Aim for high-resolution, 8K quality to ensure every detail, from the texture of the vehicle’s surface to the intricate layout of the cave, is vividly captured for a visually stunning and immersive experience.

This whole thread is hilarious!

The diffusion I’ve gotten with a cube and song lyrics are far more convincing than any of the tests I have run on ‘real’ projects.

Maybe I just need to convince my clients that they want to hire me for weird ass sci-fi like stream of consciousness building design…

Well she’s walking through the clouds, with a circus mind that’s running wild. Butterflies and zebras and moonbeams and fairy tales, that’s all she ever thinks about. Riding with the wind.

Bang on the drum all day

I don’t want to work
I want to bang on the drum all day
I don’t want to play
I just want to bang on the drum all day

Ever since I was a tiny boy
I don’t want no candy, I don’t need no toy
I took a stick and an old coffee can
I bang on that thing 'til I got blisters on my hand
Because

I want to bang on the drum all day (yes, I do)
I don’t want to play
I just want to bang on the drum all day (that’s right)

When I get older they think I’m a fool
The teacher told me I should stay after school
She caught me pounding on the desk with my hands
But my licks was so hot
I made the teacher wanna dance
And that’s why

I want to bang on the drum all day (hey, why not?)
I don’t want to play
I just want to bang on the drum all day

I don’t want to play
I just want to bang on the drum all day (listen to this)

Every day when I get home from work
I feel so frustrated, the boss is a jerk
And I get my sticks and go out to the shed
And I pound on that drum like it was the boss’s head, because I…

I don’t want to work
