Hyperloop Book built with SketchUp

Hyperloop Book built with SketchUp

Postby chippwalters » Tue Jun 16, 2015 2:14 am

Hi all,

Just to let you know we finished our concept design for Elon Musk's Hyperloop. All the models are SketchUp. The line drawing overlays are done with SketchUp. Photographic renders created in KeyShot. It will be formally released tomorrow, so you all get a sneak preview. I'll put the book link up tomorrow when we go live.

Here's a sample:

Hyperloop Coach Cabin with underwater Tripscene display:


Terminal Level three of Capsule Jukebox:


Business Work Capsule with ground based Tripscene:


Hyperloop Terminal:




Executive Meeting Capsule:


The project was a fun one...on and off for a couple months. SketchUp is just so fast at creating these sorts of models. Thanks to ALL the plugin authors-- couldn't have done it without you!!

Sick! Didn't knew Keyshot can do such wonderful interiors! Amazing work and concept, too. The sketches are wonderous. I hope they won't be just concepts ;) GG

Thanks all for the comments.
Frenchy, I agree the original roller coaster version was just too small.
Here's a link to the PDF a book.

Really fantastic worth — in both conception and presentation. I downloaded the pdf from your website and was really impressed with the quality of your design work, and the thinking behind it.

I've been following the Hyperloop story every since Musk open-sourced it. This seems a considerable contribution to the conceptual elaboration of the project. Well done.

Thanks for all the kind comments.

It's catching fire:
NBC News picked it up with a video:
http://www.nbcnews.com/video/concept-de ... 7612740001

So did Business Insider, Fast Company, hypeBeast, Austin Business Journal, and PSFK

http://www.bizjournals.com/austin/blog/ ... ustin.html
http://www.psfk.com/2015/06/elok-musk-h ... ition.html

Interviewed with Discovery and CNBC today so I suspect they will be going forward with something too. Nice to see the response from the press-- I have to say none of this could've been accomplished without SketchUp's ability to handle massive instances for objects, like seats, capsules, rails, etc..
