A warm welcome to all.

Niels: Are you saying you used SU in creating some of those images on your site?

In any case, incredible work! You have a beautiful style.

pbacot: No Su involved, but it will be in the near future all of this is pure drawing by hand rendered in Photoshop using a wacom board.
Thanks for the compliment tho

Hi Everyone. This is SnowTiger ... although I have had to re-register because this site no longer recognizes that Username for some unknown reason(unfortunately). I had a heck of a time registering because I kept getting a message saying my user name or email were already registered. Ya... I know.. but the Login wouldn't let me in OR wasn't recognized to resend username/password info. SO, I am now seen as "3D Modeler".
I love this site because it has a ton of excellent information and resources. The most important resource is the many skilled and talented SketchUp users that frequent this site.
Anyway, I'm glad to be back, regardless who I'm listed as. However, I'd gladly delete this registration if my original registration could be figured out !!

To 3dmodeler: Welcome again. Perhaps Gaieus will see your post, or you could PM him to explain the problem. I believe that he has a way to sort this out. Best wishes.

:enlight: Hi all, just arrived - often had questions about what I'm doing on Sketchup, usually more pleased I figured it out for myself, probably still a bit of a noob though.

My 3Dwarehouse is on http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/ ... &scoring=m

Hoping to get projects off the ground using Sketchup - would like to move up in the world and upgrade my product, it's made a massive difference to the way I think and plan, possibly the easiest program I have ever used - yup, like, even compared to Notepad.exe! [pro rata you understand of course - what Sketchup dishes up for just the basic level of comprehending it is almost incomparable].

Hi Chris, indeed, please, send me an email (you even know my email address). The system should recognize you unless you completely forgot your password which I can manually reset.

(Unfortunately I have fallen behind with answering all the help emails I get daily due to lack of time in 3D BaseCamp) :roll:

Hello,

I am bran new to this webpage. For a little background, I use Sketchup to render furniture and cabinets I am designing. I am a hobbyist so there are long stretches between projects allowing my poor memory to force me to relearn sketchup every time I use it!

Anyway, my current project is to render table legs for a dining room table that so far only exist as an image in my head. These legs will require a bezier spline to render in Sketchup and I cannot figure out how to download Fredo6 Bezier spline plugin.

Could you give me some guidance?

Thanks,

David

David,
Where are you having problems? It won't download? go to viewtopic.php?t=13563 and download the zip file below the "Download" heading. Click on the name of the zip file and download as you would any file in windows. Unzip the file if necessary and there should be a folder with three items. Put the three items in your plugin folder.

Hello I'm Mark,

I'd like to think I've reached the advanced levels of SU8 Pro. But I keep learning more every time I play with the plugins.

I am beginning to learn ruby as it relates to Sketchup and need lots of coaching. I hope that this is the correct place to maximize my understanding of SU and grow my abilities as a ruby developer.

Am I in the right place?

Hey everyone I am new to this forum..I have just began exploring sketchup for my projects at architecture school..I came across sketchucation when i youtubed how to make a curved sloped road/ ramp. I have downloaded the shapebender plugin but i am finding it difficult to use. I made a group of object to be bent, a line along the red axis and the curve of the road. The line and the curve did get selected..However nothing seems to happen after the curve is selected..Am I doing something wrong? Could someone guide me? I have to actually make the road on a contoured site (carve the road). So i thought i could make the road by shapebender n then use intersect model to carve it in the contours. Is there any other way of doing it?

Hi all!

I´m a design student and just joined the forum!
I just started an internship and never before used SU haha
So I´m learning slowly but faster than I expected (at least i hope so haha)

Therefore, I already got a lot of doubts about some stuff HAHA

My goal is to elaborate an library of components, but I need to edit them more freely, for example, if I make a box composed of 4 separated pieces, i wanted to edit the measures as the software Armarius... not scaling, but like opening an box to change the lateral measures, only the thickness and such.
I´ve tried searching for an plugin that does that, but haven´t been sucessfull yet... anyone knows if there is such plugin that does something similar to that? (don´t know if I was clear enough... maybe even I don´t know what I want exactly HAHA)


Thanks :)

Aetria,

Welcome to the Sketchucation forums! You might take your plugin idea to the "Plugins" Subforum (under the "Resources" Forum). You probably have to restate it (maybe pictures would help) unless someone knows about the other software and that specific feature. People usually post ideas like that as "[REQ]", for "request"--- then someone directs them to a plugin or someone might even create a plugin, if they like your idea Good luck.

Is this for "parametric" manipulation, or do you just want to stretch an object without changing edge dimensions (like making a window wider without widening the frame)?

Hi Remy,

In the French forum, there is an announcement:

A tous

Après la mise à jour des 16,17 voire 18 Août,(cf le courriel de Coen), les forums en langues étrangères ne seront plus directement accessibles à partir de l'Index Board lors de la connexion (Log). Pour cette raison, nous allons créer des "User Group" spécifiques.

J'ai déjà rajouté tous ceux qui avaient une extension fr dans leur adresse e-mail ainsi que ceux qui ont déjà posté des courriers dans ce sous-forum.

Pour tous les autres qui ont une adresse e-mail différente (de type gmail.com par exemple, ou bien les futurs inscrits ), ou bien ceux qui n'ont jamais posté de courrier dans la section française, il sera nécessaire de se réinscrire dans chacun des sous-forums en utilisant le UCP ou User Control Panel.

I have added you now so you should see that forum. Welcome to SketchUcation!

Hi everyone!
Was a long time since I came here, but this time I've registered an account. My name is Kevin Girard, french, 22 years old, and I create models with SketchUp since 2006. I create architectural models optimised for Google Earth.

In 2010, I've been selected as a Google SketchUp Super Modeler. I attended a conference ( 2010 Google Mapper/Modeler Summit in Zurich ) and I have been part of some projects.

I'm working with :
- SketchUp 8 free version
- Google Earth 7
- Photoshop CS4
- Maxwell renders

Some uses of my work :


My links :


I'm glad to be part of the community!
