Anyone Up For Some Friendly Competition?

Anyone Up For Some Friendly Competition?

Postby GreenToaster » Mon Dec 17, 2007 4:06 am

Would anyone like to compete - sort of - and use SketchUp to create something?

As an Industrial Designer, and someone who loves to use SketchUp, I'd like to propose some "ground rules" for the first competition:

1 - It's all in fun
2 - Don't forget rule number 1

So, does anyone have a topic or product or thing we could start this with? Perhaps this could be a weekly event? I know virtually all of you here are architects or you do something that's related, so we could do that, or a shampoo bottle, a tricycle, a chair, lamp, or a kitchen - doesn't matter as long as rules are applied.

If we don't have any input or can't reach a general agreement for the first project, I'll propose designing one of the following:

* toaster
* lawn mower
* bed

Competition ends and new project begins one week from now, 10:00 p.m. Eastern, 23-Dec-07.

Anyone else wanna participate? Moderators, hope this is okay?

Thanks,

Brad

Brad,

Certainly anything is OK... :P
We always welcome any initiatives that generates intuitiveness (intuition?), productivity and first of all "rule number 1"
:D

This was just a quick, maybe 6 or 7 minute model - very simple, but, at least the gallery has begun. Now, it certainly won't be difficult to "better" this model, eh, so, bring it on! :)

And a super-quick, no details idea for a lawn mower . . .

Thanks for the reminder but I tried to do gingerbread and got very frustrated. It wasn't the gingerbread, it was the icing.

Boofredlay,

Thanks, I wasn't aware of that thread.

I'll work on a ginger bread hause. With my skills, or lack thereof, I can see many challenges including the globular icing.

Here's a quickie I did today during class . . . sorry to get off topic . . .

I keep thinking that if I keep doing this that someday, maybe I'll improve. Not happening so far, but it sure is fun. I discovered a new tool today which is always great.

Actually, GreenToaster refers to my car, a kiwi green Honda Element - looks like I'm driving a toaster.

Toaster,
I'm afraid I might have misunderstood your request for a toasterbed mower. Actually I think it would be a killer concept. I guarantee you would be the first one out of the garage on Saturday morning and would be done mowing before the neighbors even knew what hit them.......and all from the comfort of your own bed.No wasted time going to Kwicky Mart for your coffee and muffin.

I took the liberty of adding a coffee machine to this rig.......it just seemed like there was something missing.Someone else can add the bed linens. I suggest a Kevlar/Nomex blend with plenty of restraint straps.

Sure, I have some details to flesh out with controls and propulsion issues, but that's minor.............
Thanks for looking

Here is my quick version, took me about 15 mins or so...

I was quite surprised how quick I did it considering I don't normally do stuff like this "I mainly do straight line stuff :D " and I'm still learning...

Very cool stuff - I like all three of them - thank you for contributing.

For next week's contest I thought it would be nice if the folks at Google would provide a prize - like, maybe a BMW Z4 Coupe. I'd like red, please.

Happy Sketching,

Brad

Wait for me....

Been busy ending my current projects, doing a tutorial for another app and screwing up the forum transfer, so I threw a toaster together quickly in order to contribute.

I will give a better effort next time.
