My Architectural Draftings, Renderings and Animations

Hello Forum,

Originally I only wanted to model a small house to test out 3d-modeled roof tiles instead of using roof tile textures. I found some tiles in the warehouse and build a little Roof. But to test out the performance with a lot of tiles, I made the whole thing bigger and bigger. Then I decided to design and model the whole house, add furniture and the landscape around it. Because of using the roof-tiles I designed a traditional looking building with a saddle roof. Then I exported it to Lumion and made some Renderings and an Animation. I also patched together some SketchUp-Scences with Photoshop.
It was a lot of work, but I also had a lot of fun.

Link to the Animation on my YT-Channel, including Draftings, Exterior and Interior Animations made with Lumion:

I uploaded the model to the warehouse. Unfortunately without furniture, because of the file size limit. Here is the link to the warehouse:

Some furniture I modeled by myself (kitchen, dining tables and chairs), but most furniture is from the SketchUp-warehouse and Lumion.

The Tiles are from the warehouse. The Tiles for the verge and the roof ridge are completed by me.

Btw, the performance with the Tiles is ok (with a color-set-style), even with my macbook I7-2,9Ghz connected to two 4k-monitors.

Some Renders with SketchUp and Lumion:



Wow bet all that detail put a load on your computer but the roof looks great! IThe angled furnished sections look really good. Nice work.


Thanks a lot Rightangler.
Yes, the project file is 200 MB. But now I removed the furniture and uploaded it to the 3d-warehouse:


Hello Forum,
I don´t want to open a new Topic for every project I´m working on. So I renamed this Topic.

Here is a project I´m working on right now just for practice.
This is a building containing 6 apartments + 1 penthouse. At my daily job I do all the draftings for building permission and construction. (With a CAD called Allplan in 2D/3D)
With SketchUp and Lumion I am practicing to illustrate Renderings for commercial marketing. Here are some images. Still working on this.
Most Furniture is from the warehouse. Kitchen by me. Rendered in Lumion 8.5.
Groundplan was brought in by dxf.

Flashback - in spring last year the SketchUp-team started the winterblues-beachhouse-contest. The Team voted my Design into the Top5, which I appreciated very much.

Later i made an Animation with Sketchup:

and with Lumion:


Great talent! Great renders.


Hello Forum!
First Image shows a section cut, drafted in 2d with Allplan. For fun I drafted this in 3d with SketchUp and Layout.



I like the blue arrows for ventilation.

Thanks Guys!

I have one problem with Layout: It is possible, to do dimensioning in isometric view, but not in 2 point perspective. Hope this feature will come soon.

Hi Peter,

Very nice job. I working on building a custom home in Utah. Can I hire you?
