Some Sketchup models

Some Sketchup models

Postby charly2008 » Tue May 05, 2009 11:17 pm

Hello to everyone.

I am new in this forum. Ketchup have I got to know about two years ago and was immediately enthusiastic about the possibilities of ketchup. With the rendering work am not yet so experienced. For rendering i use Kerkythea.
I would like to introduce some of my work here and would like to know your opinion on it.

Best Regards

Thats good work Karl.

I would however try to not use 2d components if you are going to render in Kerky. or you could use a program like Photoshop (there are cheap programs out there that do similar stuff) to add photo-realistic trees etc after the render.

Hi Karlheinz,

Please, please, more of this stuff! I'm totally fond of these reconstructions (in fact,I use SU - or at least started to use it - for exactly the same).

Hallo Gaius,

i read your occupation. I'm also activ with our city archeologists here in Frankfurt as a honorary helper.
within the last 12 months we had to work on a whole quantity of Franconian and bronze temporal graves but the reconstruction is a much harder business.

Hello Pilou,

it is a very simple technic but it takes some time . I imported a drawing of the cross an made contours from all elements to get faces. After finishing all faces i used only the push pull tools. I hope this will be helpfull for you.

I'm all interested in those projects - even if they are just "work in progress" (which I also have a lot and only very few that I have actually finished, too ;) )

Here are two videos from about two years ago (sorry for the "YouTube Quality" - I have it at a higher resolution, too, if you are interested)





And an interior only for a quick render test in IDX Renditioner:

_______

But sorry for the OT post - I don't want to hijack your topic so please (again), some more projects/images :thumb:

Hello Gaius,

this model is really fantastic, particularly the surroundings are looking realistic. How did you create these surroundings. With the rendering techniques I am not so much experienced yet.

I have many models not yet finished too. Sometimes i loose the motivation . Then i have to motivate myself newly again and again . But the Models i saw in this Forum will give me new energy to continue.

The Problem at the reconstruction is to find Data which helps you to calculate or estimate tha size of the objects.

Below again some stuff made with Sketchup.

That was Max but it wasn't me who rendered it. :oops: I wish I could do that so well (and also keep that part of the money :D )

Well, everything is modelled. Even from inside. The last video is the same church as the exterior in the first one - and so on, with 6 churches/monasteries/cathedral, dummy houses, town wal... everything (and now tell me about poly count ;) )

You can actually see the edge of the terrain around the town; only good thing is that it's not very distracting.

That plugin is indeed great. I also found it not too long ago.

I see you have a Roman fort, too. I have a friend who's modelled one with awesome details (all interiors, vaulting, even furniture, shields, arms everything).

This Roman fort is an reconstructed existing one close to Frankfurt I'm shure as an archelogist you have heard the name "Saalburg"

Is there a possibility to see this Model from your friend? This is also my dream to make such a detailed Model

I can ask him to post a couple of shots. He's also a member here but has only posted (very few posts) in the Hungarian forum so far (he speaks German though and also finishes archaeology soon).

This is fascinating! this is an insight into Roman urbanism I've not seen. Where were the forts generally located relative to Roman cities?

Well, mostly along the frontiers (at least these "late Roman" forts).

Karlheinz (the original poster of this topic) is from Germany - say the ancient "Germania (or neighbouring) Province" and myself from "Pannonia Province" - both highly militarised frontier zones of the Roman Empire.

Thanks Gábor for (finally) sharing these here, in the gallery, too.

For others' information, this is an extremely detailed model - there are even furniture and weaponry "ready to use" inside the barracks. Gábor is mainly developing it for educational purposes as in July we are going to a "Roman re-enactment camp" (to an ancient site of a Roman fort actually) for kids where they are going to be able to walk about in the model "real time" like in a FPS game and different "tasks" will be hidden inside.

Wow! How does that work when the kids can walk around in the model? Is there a website you can point me to that explains?

There are a couple of programs you can turn your SU model into something like that. Walkabout 3D or Simmetry 3D for instance but there are even ones that will make a flash website if you wish.

Hi Gabor,

how many time did you spent on this model?. Which documents were at your disposal (Plans, Drawings, Images)?
