Plugins make it too easy.

Chris Fulmers Component Stringer and Spherical Helix by Regular Polygon are simply wonderful.

About 10 minutes.

Hmmm. I see a lot of people aren't adding their 3D models. If you attach them, it will save Pete the trouble of hunting down each person and requesting their models when he creates the rendering scene. Just thought I'd remind everyone. ;)

My first two attempts failed. :lol: I might try a couple of simple ones before the competition is over to give the tree some fullness. :D

Good reminder, and I had to remember to scale mine as it would have dwarfed the tree.

Thanks man. Pretty easy actually, that is with Curviloft. Just 6 arcs and skin them.
Then copy, scale & rotate, add a little freehand lines on surface with Tools On Surface and paint the snow.

You right, it's gonna get heavy.

I didn't think this out very well in the beginning. :?

And I was just about to suggest we place a couple copies of each ornament to "fill out" the tree. :lol: :roll:

Hmmmm. Maybe only the top 10 or so ornaments, as voted by the people, could make it on the tree. But then, that's not very nice for newbies like me. Especially for the season of giving. :cry:

If only someone had a nice poly reducing tool ;)

Maybe only those who get a certain number of votes will make it onto the SCF Tree? The winner adorns the top?

I love those pines!
I tried to do one but the result was lame.
It sounds easy when you explain it, but... would you do a tuto of it? :D

I've got a model of this tree (themodernchristmastree.co.uk) if it would be of any use:

xl-treeX.jpg


It's very low poly and might showcase the decorations better than a complex realistic tree.

I remember trying to do the icing, which in the days before plugins was impossible

While my family is decorating a tree, we like to have a little bit of holiday treats with the tinsel and christmas music. So I thought I would add this to share.

Bon Appetit and Merry Christmas to all of my SU forum friends.

Hello People! I made this cute lil snowman based on a reference image I found on Google. And I was so bored that I decided to help the english speaking SketchUp community, (I'm brazilian btw), so I recorded the entire process explaining the procedures (talking in english ofc) I had to to in order to model it. The video will probably be up tomorrow on my youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/andretbms . Modeling time was about 29~30 minutes. (could be less if I weren't talking that much :P)

-----------------------------------------------------
Video Finally Uploaded! Available in 1080p :)
The entire modelling process in real time and ENGLISH. hehe. Hope you like it :p

This is my first submission to a speed model challenge and my third try on this one. The two before proved to be too complex for the short time so I tried something simpler... Still had some problems, though.

It's a glass star similar to some my parents have.
