Here's a quick simple one.
You can use more blocks with different materials to get a mixture of stones.

... a great example and thank you for this short making of demo which suggests so many possible uses!
(and it's a shame that I have never tried MSPhysics so far ;) )

@HornOxx:
Don't try MSPhysics as it can be addictive.... Using gravity is the beginning of the end... Devil's work! You will neglect your job and your family, ultimately become lonely, impoverished and physically stunted. And yet you can't stop and you will always want to achieve more... And you will get it... :fro:
@Box:
Thank you for the playful application and convincing demonstration of some powerful plugins for creating a seemingly simple heap of stones! The hard part, which is now easy to do... :thumb:

Here's a chess piece I've made using SUbD and Vertex Tools.

A Music inspired Work

This work is not what it looks like at first sight but a scene taken from the musical film from Pink Floyd`s "The Wall".

The Pink Floyd album “The Wall” (1979) is one of my all-time favorite albums ever. I’m not necessarily a Pink Floyd fan though, but this album hit me directly and I still like to hear it over and over again. Especially I love the “Live in Berlin” version from 1990 where also many guest stars from this time were performing this album.

Certainly it is unnecessary to explain that the scene shown below is inspired by the “Hammers March” scene from the “The Wall” musical movie from 1982 - some of the “older ones” among us will surely remember ;-) and the album I recommend to all younger people here who might not know it ...

a personal note: Too bad that the theme “Wall” has returned so strongly in these times again in an often unreasonable manner…

My wife and her family were some of the last "citizens" allowed to leave with no papers and no money as undesirables, so I know full well your reference. So strange that we moved back decades later and lived in Dresden for so long.

Thank you Box!! my wife suggested me not to post this work as it could be misunderstood.
But now I'm sure it's right to post this picture, even and also especially because of it´s negative real context-association.

There's several scenes and a couple of styles involved. I'll try to share the file next week (I'm off until monday)

Hi HornOxx, your hammers would be a good example for an animation of the march with animator (Fredo6). The threatening effect comes across quite well in your renderings. At that time I recorded the concert of Pink Floyd in Berlin from the TV to a videotape.
Those were the days...

since SubD user Ted Vitale has already started the winter- or even x-mas season(?) with a so nice contribution on SubD´s facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/SUbD4SketchUp/)
I would like to add this reindeer couple (anyway, they look like this a little bit) here as well because maybe these two will soon have to pull a sledge :)

Did a quick print this morning.
One thing to note, very gentle slopes, when it is almost horizontal but isn't, are hard to print. You can see it's quite rough on the back and the top of the head. But in this case it works as it seems to have created a face.

Hi Box :thumb: great to see the reindeer thing to get real - even more on the other side of the earth - somehow I'm still wondering about these digital possibilities today ;)
thanks for doing this at all and thank you for the interesting remarks - so it is better for a 3d printing process to avoid horizontal edges and faces?

I notice that the promotional material for SketchUp came with a picture of a model that is obviously NOT created using the tools provided in SketchUp. I guess this is common for SW promotions....

Oh really? Was that part of an email?
I want to find out who made that model so I can repost it on SUbD's page.

Horizontal is ok because the printer just make one layer, it's when it is just off horizontal that it causes problems. It has to print a face with many different layers and the steps between the edges of each layer can mess things up.

Needed some more table lamps for the parts file. The lamp base is a take off from a lamp I own. Base has 12 flutes around, easy doings with Vertex Tools and SubD. Just changed the taper between the two with Vertex Tools.

Monochrome image of lamps with proxies, quickie render of finished lamps.

That's a great model! Looks like the owner of the hands is plotting something devious :D

Classic (Red) Cars #2
It’s been about a year since I posted Donald Duck’s red classic 313 here.
http://sketchucation.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=397&t=63826&start=660#p608437

Today I´ll post a second again somehow childishly classic car - it’s the “Bobby Car” from the BIG toy company.
Sometimes it feels to me like the kids here (at least in Germany) get this car right before their parents decide on any children’s name :D
Anyway - I’ve been playing around with this model for a long time (already from the Prae-SubD Era) and now I retrieved it and finally found the time to complete it ;)

[The proxy model is attached - it is more a sketch than an exact 3D-image, as I only found photos as templates and it´s scale is pure coincidence :D ]

Regards and enjoy
