How to start it

modeling

#1

Welcome users,

I need advice to create an object with an intricate cubature. As part of my studies, I wanted to create a restaurant model with a very characteristic appearance. Only I do not have much idea how to follow her to make my work as effective as possible. As for the building, I have top view. Anyone could advise something?

I am not sure what you are after but ‘Quad Face Tools’ may prove useful?

My recommendations would be to ditch SketchUp for Schools, pick up either SketchUp Make or Pro (the full desktop version), use ThomThom’s QuadFace Tools and SUbD to generate the shape and then possibly my own Eneroth Pipe to turn a triangle mesh into a space frame.

Take the plan and lateral views from: http://sztuka-architektury.pl/article/10764/genesis-kosmiczna-restauracja
Use Curviloft plugin to generate the 3D model:
