Mods, any chance of making this thread a sticky? It took me a while to find it again- even under my bookmarks! :?

How about we have a thread that only mods can add to and post on but everyone could view. We could put up the most impressive models found around here along with a link to each corresponding thread. We could have a separate discussion thread open to everyone so they can nominate people's works etc. It would just be nice to have a real "Gallery" of the greatest SketchUp works. :D

It's kind of elaborate I guess but I don't think it would be too hard to implement, right?

That has been covered before but Mods are a notoriously lazy bunch. I wouldn't bother asking them.

We have recently grown the Gallery forum to add a WIP forum to accomodate the feedback we got on the Gallery becoming cluttered. Adding a Mod only locked topic kind of takes away the community spirit of the place. By having members recommending members it remains a true representation of what SCF thinks of the submissions on show.

Whilst it does seem to have simmered down lately it is a great place to visit to get inspiration/motivation and mostly depression.

But you never know you may get your wish someday......

Anything by this guy;
http://www.giantmonster.tv/giant/
Specifically;
http://www.giantmonster.tv/giant/?page_id=612

These images are produced mostly in sketchup. He used to have a great wealth of info regarding this project on his blog, including tuts, workflows, etc. But as time went on it has moved to the back burner and the amount of info has decreased, but I still find it very inspirational.

He also used to have some videos on youtube showing his sketchup workflow. I forget what they were called but they're a good watch.

He's Justin Chin and a member here:
memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=1565

You can search under the advanced search for his topics in the gallery (search for him as author and the topics he started - i.e. "first post..." in the gallery)

I just took a quick romp through this post, and all I can say is they are all FAKES. Photographs, pure and simple.

SU cannot be that good for such a simple to use app. :mrgreen:

And if there was ever to be a "Photo" contest, there would have to be a few dozen First Prizes. :enlight:

Justin's work is super slick for sure. I had the pleasure of meeting him in Boulder at the last Basecamp, he is a class act all the way.

I am not critiquing the quality of the SU art in any way, but, the mechanical concept of the Heavy Lifter is a somewhat backwards. The large dual wheels under the engine/counterweight should be as close to the lift forks as possible, as that is where the load will be. The 2 smaller tires in front are seemingly way too small for the load the lifter seems designed for. Plus the steering mechanism cannot take such a load, which is one of the main reasons almost all lift trucks have the steerables in the back. The load end is usually a solid axle.
Very nicely done model and render though. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

I wrote an answer and posted a few great model images I found here, but I started thinking...
What if we posted the most impressive SketchUp models we've seen. All in this thread. Could be our own or others.
(With the modelling in focus, not rendering.)

A collection of the best of the best that would impress most on people that are not aware of SketchUps capabilities.

I'll start off with the images I posted in my reply to him:


Axeonalias Beam Trawler "Sea Lady"



Silver shadows HMS Snowberry


Silver shadows The river runs through it.


That second picture is particularly impressive. Whoever made that is incredible talented, I wish my sketches came out like that.

That is the version used in the Macross:Do you remember love? movie from 1984. The movie is considered canon as a movie inside the original Macross universe...so yeah it's not acurate with the TV series but it is an actual version used in Macross. It is probably more popular because it's a more detailed version than the one in the series. The movie is renowned for it's high quality animation and detailing.

I'll post a few of mine. Although they are nothing SPECTACULAR, they are the best I'VE ever made, and I'm hoping my skills will keep improving.

The first is what started off as just a single Pergola segment with a couple benches. But then I added curved corners and a flat roof in the middle and before you knew it I had turned it into a Gazebo as well. A Perzebo maybe?



Then on a whim I took away the central roof and attached all the pergola beams together to make a vine trellised peak in the middle. And added plants to the flower boxes.




The second is is a Gazebo I made to practice structure building. Then I added a swing to it.

Hey, thanks Numbthumb, I feel honored to be included in this fantastic collection!
I'm in the process of making some improvements/changes to the car (opening the doors, etc.), getting it ready for the Warehouse. Will post some pics in my WIP thread soon.
