Hello
I’m an amateur user of sketch up. I have been using it since 2015. I’m high school student at Seville (SPAIN).
I have done many models of architecture. I have improved all my skills in a short period of time at doing this type of models.
I have been focused in the mainly skycrapers of my country. I have done the model of the highest tower in Spain (Torre Cristal) by Cesar Pelli and finally a Norman Foster’s building situated in the bussiness center of Madrid between others
Now I’m focused at new projects that I will share in a short period of time.
I hope and want to get a good placement and popularity of all my projects ,a location on an blog or a webpage would be perfect.

Hi I’m Paul
I work at Numatic International ( we make the Henry Vacuum ) as a Graphic Designer. I also design and create Exhibitions for Numatic which is how I got into Sketchup. More recently I use SU to create and render products.

Who are you, who, who? Friends call me Meow (no kidding)

What is your industry and profession? I am originally a portrait artist/painter

Where do you use SketchUp? I just been trying out sketchup for fun. It has become a hobby

Why do you use SketchUp and what is your favorite thing about it? My father is an architect and I have always been a fan of his work. I been having fun modeling his houses just to test my limits and the software itself.

How proficient are you in SketchUp? Not so sure yet, I just started last year, but have rarely had the time to practice. Being an OCD perfectionist, I tend to be very strict with my models.

What is your current set up? Asus: 8GB; Intel CORE i7; SketchUp Pro 2015.

Do you have a 3DW page with your models, Extensions, or a website you would like to link to or show off to us? here is a sample image of what I have done on sketchup…


Anything else you would like to tell us? I am originally a portrait artist/painter and a sculptor, but haven’t done much of that lately for years I have been sickly… I am very new to 3D modeling and I find it addictive.

What is your favorite Emoji? :smile_cat: I guess? LOL

Do you enjoy long walks on the beach…? No, I am a very lazy person (well, technically I am physically weak and probably dying soon LOL). I use sketchup like a game. I use it as a stress reliever/therapy.

Hi!

I’ve been using Sketchup for years – It serves sometimes as my basic relaxation tool!

This summer, I’ve been having fun taking pictures of things I see in my travels, and then making a model of them. My long-term project is creating a model of a hotel my 2nd great-grandfather ran in the 1870’s. Unfortunately, it burned down in February, 1910 – so, needless to say, I never saw it.

I have about four or five photos to go on. I’m not looking for exactness, but more interested in getting a good sense of what it looked and felt like. There are a couple things I’d like help with, but first I’ll see if this reaches anyone.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Bruce

Hello! I’m excited to be joining the forum. Looks like an awesome group of folks in here, and it’s an honor to be a part.

Just a bit to get acquainted:

  • What is your industry and profession? I am the Principle Consultant in my own business.

  • Where do you use SketchUp? Personally/professionally? I currently use Make for personal projects, but hope to begin using Pro for professional purposes soon!

  • Why do you use SketchUp and what is your favorite thing about it? **The simplicity is brilliant, and yet the plugin architecture makes it robust and flexible.

  • My favorite thing about SketchUp is the rapid workflow. I can go from blank to a helpful visual in just minutes, making iterative improvements a real possibility.**

  • How proficient are you in SketchUp? Beginner, intermediate, advanced? Intermediate

  • What is your current set up? Computer type, SketchUp version…etc. Windows 10 with lots of processing and ram. SketchUp Make for now.

  • Do you have a 3DW page with your models, or a website you would like to link to or show off to us? A small amount of my work can be previewed at haemer.co, but I don’t have a proper gallery page yet.

  • Anything else you would like to tell us? I’m excited to get in here and learn from other people. And hopefully, I’ll be able to help someone else along the way.

Hi all,
Alan Fraser here…finally getting around to joining the forum. I’ve been using SketchUp for more years than I care to think about…sttarting withV2…around 2002 or 3, I think.
I use SketchUp…for SketchUp. I’m the Art Editor and chief modeller at FormFonts, so I spend my time doing little else other than making SU-friendly, low-poly components.


Model quality control for 3d warehouse

Thanks Anssi; that’s very kind of you. I don’t seem to have had much time to be involved in forums lately. Too busy making stuff…in SketchUp. :wink:
