One of my favorite things about working at Trimble SketchUp is that most people in the office have a side project or two… Well, one of my projects came to fruition last month. It’s a real-life escape room game! For those who aren’t familiar with the basic concept, it’s a room full of puzzles; teams have one hour to solve all of the puzzles and unlock a treasure chest.
I used SketchUp for a few parts of the project: I used it to model our available space and to create furniture layouts, and I used it to create mocks of puzzles for my business partner to review before we started construction. Using SketchUp on an actual project was a good experience - it gave me some perspective on how skilled some of the users are on this forum!
Anyways, if anyone is local, or needs to kill some time in the area before going to Basecamp this year, come see it! It’s called “Somewhere Secret”:
