From Kangal on smcars.net a car made almost entirely with soap skin and bubble. It's completely crazy.

I recently started to use Sketchup over VectorWorks for 3D models and slowly am getting the hang of it.
Due to the aid of the sketchup community and the discovery of some file plugin's.
As a designer I would like the plugin's to be a bit more consistent what the GUI (graphic user interface) concernce.
But anyway they work and that's also important.

Here is an example of my latest work

I think Im going to make a page on my blog for the best of the best sketchup models feel free to link people to that page as it will be just images thet everybody can view!

And of course ill credit each image with the creator etc

I just came upon Liam's note way at the beginning of this thread so I thought I'd bump it because many people have probably missed his link-- worth a look.

Thanks, Liam!

Very well done. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

My only criticism is considering the high quality of the work in general, I would have used a much higher segment count for the wheels and fenders, to smooth out those curves. It looks like the default 24.
I would have used at least 48 or even 60+ just for those large circles.

Wow, I'll bet this guy sleeps in a spacesuit with a phaser under his pillow :lol: I'm not really into spacecraft that much but these are some of the best I've seen. He doesn't go overboard with the details like some I've seen, they are clean and very well thought out.

The video tutorial on post processing is excellent, I've only watched about 6 minutes of it and already I've learned a lot.

Thanks for posting this Marian :thumb:

I'm not into post-process rendering, but that was impressive. I watched about 50% (fast fwd through repetitive stuff) and that was an education in itself. I'm a big fan of layers in SU, but using layers like he did in post was an eye opener, and for what little of that I do in my photoeditor, I will be using layers to edit. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

OK, this isn't SU modeling. :bounce:

I was on the net researching Planetary Gear Drives and computing their ratios, when I found this link.

It gave me the calcs I needed, but then later I started to explore some of the links on the page, and a few hours later, I'm here.

Go to this page, go 1/2 way down and click on "Planetary Gear Drive" or any of the links on page bottom, go watch some videos and be amazed. :o

http://woodgears.ca/gear/planetary.html

===================================================================
And my SU model in part....... (resulting from that research)

Attached are 4 pics of the gearbox for an actuator I'm working on on my big airplane project.
(Straight from SU, no post rendering)

That stuff from Scifiwarships is really awesome -- highly render-able too, this a is try out of Maxwell and you can see his stuff really is ready to go.

Thank-you for the heads up, I'll be keeping an eye on him.

Best,
Jason.

Hi all...
Just wondering...are there any amazing designs that created just by using pure google sketchup (without additional plugins).

I am a newbie here, so my question might look stupid. :geek:

There is no such thing as a stupid question, especially when from a novice.

The object behind nearly all pluggins is either to correct a deficiency or to enhance a feature, or most usually, make a tedious task easier, faster or more accurately.

The rendering you see in preceding posts are all after the fact of drawing the model. There is very little "rendering" capability in SU, so 3rd party apps or pluggins are needed to "put the lipstick and eye shadow" on. You still need the skills in SU to make a realistic model before you dress it up.

So, yes, you can make a model in SU without any pluggins, but it will take a lot more effort.

As an example, I design airplanes, and not just the exterior views, I put in components and assemblies, such as structure, mechanics, etc. It used to take me a week to make a fairing (the curved skin where 2 parts of the structure meet, such as wing to fuselage) in native SU.

Then Curviloft came along and that reduced to about 2 days. I need to draw both the outer skin or moldline and the inner surface of composite panels that were usually 1/2 to 1 inch thick. I could not simply copy the outer skin 1/2 inch away, then join the edges, as the inner curve changes with the thickness.

Then Joint-Push-Pull came along and the construction time for a fairing is now a few hours.
