As this competition was so popular maybe a similar theme for the next should be adopted ..... Mmmmmm ........ now I wonder what would work with a 'chair'???? Any ideas


OK I agree with Mike about having a new challenge that (loosely) relates to the old one.

How about "Sculpture"

It would be nice for it to be a figurative challenge allowing for lots of expressive interpretation.

I have also arranged with a 3D printing company for the next winner to have their model produced. I will advise Remus about the details.


I think a sculpture modeling challenge would suit the 3D printing perfectly....you could have your own little desk top sculpture!!

Great idea, so a subject that could be used as a trophy, memento would be ideal.

GOOD NEWS FOR WINNERS!

Hi Guys,

I just got an email from Duane Moraes of http://www.packtpub.com/ and he has kindly agreed to cover BOTH winners with a hardback copy of SketchUp 7.1 for Architectural Visualization: Beginner's Guide https://www.packtpub.com/sketchup-7-1-f ... guide/book I have also asked him to email the coloured PDF version to each winner. I trust this will also be done.

Hi Mike and all,

This link seems to work better:
https://www.packtpub.com/sketchup-7-1-f ... guide/book


Also, is this "sculpture" the new theme? I should soon announce the new challenge as Remus is not here.

Great news.
Much better having a real book in your hands than looking at a pdf on screen.

Yeah, it seemed that only a part of your original link was pasted and I did not know you were coming back to correct immediately.

THE NEXT SMC PRIZE AGREED!

Hi Guys,

Just got word back from Martijn Joris of Materialise http://i.materialise.com/Tool/CreateYou ... turalModel that he will put up a prize of a 3D Print for the winner. Martijin has also said 'We can make a kind of trophy with his design on', so it can be anything any subject you like.

I see Oli has suggested a Sculpture, so maybe we could move along with this idea? How about a SketchUp Sculpture to PEACE! It could take any form the designer wishes, abstract or organic! What do you think?

If all agreed I think we might be able to talk Csaba into setting up the next Challenge :thumb:

Yeah that's true.

For the next Challenge I also think sculpture is a very good challenge, what do you think if one of us could design a simple town square with a kind of sculpture base in the middle for the challenge.

Each of the member would use the SU square to add on its own sculpture on??? That would be funny to see how each of the participant will make the square looks like? :idea: :?: :?:

I could try, but I think there are some great architect on this forum, I also need to get my hands on SU again, from this chair challenge I have been learning Blender heavily and I am totally lost when using SU again, doing wrong shortcuts and all the times :o Anyway I will try to post something on this thread tomorrow.
Cheers.

things is....sculpture may not be relevant in an open external square. the impact on an interior may be completely different for example. How about just a simple studio setup with a podium/stand?

just a thought....

I'd say just a sculpture.
Sculpture is already difficult to model with narrowing it down. We didn't say model a chair with 4 legs!
I'm more for seeing various sculptures, forms, sizes, settings etc.
We can always have the fun afterwards with outdoor and studio settings.

yeah i agree. as soon as you give the sculpture context it completely changes its impact. Even the stand on which it sits (if there is one ;) )

Let's just keep it simple: "Sculpture"

If I may add my 2 cents....


Thinking about the prize of having what you model made into a real world object, one needs to know what the parameters and restrictions are in 3D printing (I have no idea), use these guidelines to assist in you ideas and modeling.

I'd suggest a sculpture/trophy/gizmo that you can display on a shelf, keep on your desk.

I do not know how intricate 3D printing can go, so until clarity I'd keep the geometry as simple as possible.

How about (just a quick thought) a Sketchup trophy, that way if you win you get a physical trophy of your achievements designed by you...pretty unique idea.

Nice work on the chairs Alex and Oli. I like both of them.

And thanks to the 3 people who voted for mine. Since it wasn't an original design I really didn't expect any votes.

Yeah no problems, it is true that I was in the mood of narrow down a bit the sculpture theme which is quite wide actually, :lol: as we can model absolutely whatever we want and say it is a scuplture, but why not?

The nice thing about sculpture is it does cover a broad range, in fact a very broad range, but that should increase participants hopefully like the last challenge.

We could just do with getting more people in here voting.
The amount of people posting here, surely we could get more voters involved.

I've no idea Karina.
Seems this one is dragging on. With Remus not here to drive things, no one is really taking command.

SOLO: yeah i think some advice on the size of the printed object would be nice as well.

3D printing can produce very intricate models and impossible shapes....shapes you would never achieve by hand such as complex mathematical geometry. so I imagine complexity will not be an issue.

SCULPTURE!

OK, next competition announced (see global announcements) thanks to Rich who practically prepared it.

I only changed the closing time to 6 am UTC as many from over the pond generally complains that they only have time for this during the very last night of the comp.
:D

Cheers and happy sculpting!
