SketchUp Arcade Machine

Hey all, I thought I’d share this here:

Last year I made an arcade machine for the SketchUp team:

Every part of this was designed in SketchUp. Each part was fabricated off of a SketchUp model. I even used MS Physics to create a SketchUp driving game that you could play right on it. Oh yeah, it shoots smoke too! Check out the video of it in action here:

I figured all of the SketchUp geeks here would appreciate it. We’ll bring it out for the next trade show, and maybe even Basecamp!


Impressive project!

But the screen is not curved, and it has colours! :smile:
(remembering the “ping pong” machines from the 1970s).

Thanks @Cotty @Anssi It is a bit of a modern take on an old arcade machine, so no curved screen. However I did make SketchUp look very “8 Bit” by way of a custom style!

Nice job!

Thanks @liamk887 That was probably my favorite project of 2017.

Nice, I would love to do a physical project this year I have not done one in a while.

Do it! Making stuff is awesome!
