Hi folks. I was planning this topic since the beginning and here we are. I wanted to express my immense gratitude towards every single person from SketchUp, everyone from the development department, tech support, administrative department, everyone!
Yesterday was my diploma/thesis defense day. I’ve finally graduated from my university and I got high marks from the jury and examination team! Without SketchUp I wouldn’t be who I am today, so thank you all for your hard work and support. Thank you for building this amazing software, thank you for developing it day by day and perfecting it!
I got 17/20, in other terms 85% out of 100. My project was marked the highest among other students yesterday. Here are some pictures from my project. The area was 22.500 square meters (sorry, I got weird numbers when trying to convert it to imperial, so I’m not entirely sure how much it is in feet). I didn’t render the 3D unfortunately, because of my slow notebook. There are 5.000.000 polygons. (Maybe one day in the future, hehe!)
The park is the Grand Avenue Park in Yerevan, Armenia. It is deserted at the moment so I took this opportunity and chose it as my final project. It’s a renovation suggestion of the entire park. I was later told that the juries liked this project the most and the only reason I didn’t get 20 was because of the presentation boards. The computer (and LayOut) was lagging so badly, that I couldn’t make them as I originally intended, but that’s ok.
Thank you again for SketchUp! Keep up the good work! Cheers to all. See you around!
And also, a small, Harry Potter - related pun regarding the students getting a degree: “Master has given Dobby a diploma. Master has presented Dobby with a degree. Dobby is FREE!”
