ever made anything neat on google sketchup ?
>>517681no, cad or nothing
I just wanna know why the hell your second toolbar has a ton of the same shit on the first toolbar.
I use it every day for work. Ask me anything.
>>517681What the fuck is google sketchup?CAD is free dude
>>517681I've used to to make quick greebles. It's useless for everything else. Literally any modelling software is better.
made this in sketchfab and imported to blenderprobably my first model ever
>>517760CAD is free? Which CAD would actually be usable? I thought the free CADs are mostly crap.
>>517773CAD is for industrial design, do you really need it
>>517774Well I just modeled and 3D printed a broken piece for the fridge door and it works just fine. Plus learning CAD could open doors. You never know when that skillset is going to get useful.Also modeling guns, buildings and mechanical objects could be fun in CAD.
>>517776freecad is usable, but if you want to get serious about it get student version of solidworksi heard freecad is much improved but i can't really make the comparison
>>517681Im using sketchup.For just personal fun.
>>517805Dude that's bad assHow do you make stuff like this in sketchup
>>517807Starting with the basic shape.Constant refining until desired results. But good sensibility to affect final image.
I made this once, never did anything more with it. I had to make the bodywork of a car as part of a group project in college using a model car as reference. We had to make it in PTC Creo, but I made it first in SketchUp since I had a few years of experience in that. I got it looking right in SketchUp and then used it as a reference for Creo.
>>517681Most that i made was an entire city in version 6 but the program became unstable and wasn't worth building anymore of it.
>>517681>8Months until 2017>Still using sketchup for architectural designDie in flames
>>517681Made this workspace / sleep van 6 years ago in sketchup.
>>518081I like it. the fenders in particular are pretty good
and this too
>>519243>>519244It looks unpractical as fuck, put some sort of cabin and windows to hide the driver from the outside, otherwise he'll have dust, grass and sticks up his ass all the way to his mouth.
>>519258>unpracticalmost off road buggies don't have any kind of window/guard.
>>519243>>519244>All those segments on the circles
>>519258There's Dust googles or helmets you know. I also wonder how you imagine it'd be to ride a bike into the backcountry.
>>519291it looks better when you smooth components in sketchuphe didnt do that and just hid the lines and kept profiles on instead
Been trying to make original giant robots off and on with this shit for years and I only just managed to "complete" this one. Really trying to move on to Blender but I just haven't been motivated to get comfortable with it.
I don't have any work to show but I used to use sketchup all the time some years back. Mostly designing 'dream homes' and shit, which ended up becoming a whole neighborhood after a while. It was pretty fun.
Help needed ASAP. THANKS Could some please create a google sketch up/CAD version of this product I have designed.I'm hopeless at CAD. Any help greatly appreciated. Will pay back in the dankest memes. Thanks again. :)
>>519332so sick. definitely move to a real modelling program. i recommend zbrush
>>519332not bad at all
>>519464You're not fooling me zbrushfag
>>518081>PTC CreoBeen using it for 4 years. Never again will I use PTC Creo
>>519453i found you you fucking fag, nice copy/paste-gd
>>519500you said you twice :)
>>519494I fucking hate it, I will never willingly use it again either.
>>517770Where the fuck is the barrel
>>517805Nice work, reminds me of a master grade gundam model the one with the inner frames
>>517681i did this over the yearshttp://www.estereovisual.com/
>>521797how did u render this stuff?far as i remember sketchup don't have an internal render engine
>>521809Through the power of my ass alone!
How the fuck do you guys do this shit? do you use plugins? what the fuck. Im an architect and I only have experience in sketchup, should I jump to other 3d progams or just keep practicing on sketchup till I stop being shitty at it?
>>521826finish your schooling son
>>521839Wow thanks for the great tip, now I see why people prefer leddit
>>517681Let's face it. SketchUp is a pile of shit that went downhill right from version 8. If I could tell my 14 year old self who wanted a modelling program, I would tell him to trash SU as soon as possible after learning the basics from it. Full of functions that noone needs, but lack of simple but major functions even in the payed version.I was using it in middle school from like version 6 and I had to realize that even adding 40 plugins couldn't bring it up to the level of blender. Which is also fucking free. If I would have spent all that time learning Blender and After Effects, now I could make a living off making $2 presets for slideshows and intros/animations for youtubers for a few bucks...Now if I could send in animations to Ted-ED and similar places, I would be well off.
>>518444I use sketchup daily for architectual design. What is your first alternative? Been in the industry for 12 years now and there is nothing I can't do in sketchup. CAD plebs always bringing me their files asking me to make it look nice in 3d, then when I open the file up they have hundreds of thousands of lines ontop of lines cos they never learn how to manage their files for a 3d space.CAD users are cancer holding the industry back.
>>519453hereit looks nothing like your drawing because i followed your measurementsyou forgot to include measurements for your gaps in the second one and i dont know what those lines on the first one are meant to be. did you want it open with shelf looking things in it?
>>521826so what doesnt get brought up in here is one of the biggest fucking bonuses of sketchup is the pluginsthe google extension store has alright ones, but i suggest you go to Sketchucation and look at some of theirsmaking shit with sketchup is such a breeze with good plugins for what you want and with some decent experience
>>521854You would use blender over sketchup in a professional setting for architectural jobs? Sorry but I don't believe it, you will literally get laughed out of the room.
>>521854>SketchUp is a pile of shit that went downhill right from version 8I don't know what you mean by this. I've been using sketchup for years, each release has only been improved upon the last. "a bad workman always blames his tools"
>>521938No this is really fucked, just fuck off mate i will do this myself
>>522744It's fucked because your dimensions are retarded.This guy is the third person to model your design following your dimensions and they all look like that. The only model that looked anything like your drawing was the guy who ignored the given dimensions.Don't get pissy with that anon, he's not the retarded one.
>>523040>plsdontstealwho the hell would want to steal such a piece of shit
>>523045I put that on it to make fun of the guy when he made his original thread.
>>517681I have a render of the master bedroom and a two point perspective which looked a bit spooky so I decided to post this elevation instead.
What was the Sketchup guy's name again? Doug or something? The one that people like to hide in their renders.
>>522744you gave me shit to work with
>>521826>>521848>le git gud
>>521940He never mentioned architectural jobs.Anyway, they're not going to laugh at you if they are happy with your work.
>>524935sketchup is waste of time if you are doing architectureit might work if you are a student and are willing to put into this shit much more work than other students but in working environment it's useless
>>525037I am a student, I'm going to be learning 3DS Max this summer and I am still debating with my self if I should learn revit. I went to an architectural firm last week and the draftsmen were telling they prefered autocad for technical drawings and max for the renderings. One of them told me revit still hasn't "matured" enough for them to completely switch over.What do you guys suggest I learn? I'm currently using autocad + sketchup and photoshop
>>524994But they will because blender cannot house all the details and sections sketchup can, let alone be accurate.Sure you may have something pretty but then they will go tell you to turn the file into something they can use... then you will bumble out muh blender then they will laugh
>>525037Simply incorrect. I'm an architect and have used sketchup professionally for years. It's the preference of most clients and competitors because of its versatility.
>>525048They are right about revit, it's not ready and sketchup just keeps getting further and further ahead.The thing is, you can do your tech stuff in sketchup plus have something ready you can import straight into max, rather than remake it from blue prints. That's a pretty common workflow for people who use sketchup, although a lot of people I know are looking for alternatives to max now. Stuff like unreal and twinmotion seeming to be the most popular choices.
This was my first attempt at 3D modelling. I started with an iconic building because it would be easy. I haven't really bothered making anything else since.
>>518081Sketchup has surfacing tools?
i've been doing my future city design competition using skp. pic related
>>519332how the fuck do people make stuff like this in sketchup
>>527551certainly takes a lot of talent, but a gundam really is a great thing to make in sketchup, its mostly blocks with no serious organic curves/meshes so its very doable.sketchup starts to become a nightmare when you want to do more complex curved things
>>527551>implying some shitty looking generic mecha is hard to make
about 10mins in sketchup
I began to build 3D rooms for VR recently. I used CATIA a bit as a student, but I mostly have no idea what I'm doing. Blender is a bit... overwhelming and for the moment I mostly need to build blocky stuff, so I'm using sketchup.
>>527601That's cool but Jesus Christ I would never try vr with that lolWould have a heart attack
>>524969>>519244>>519243The two things I miss about Sketchup is the ability to make Components(?) where you can make a change to one and it's reflected everywhere, and to arbitrarily group things so you can hide/move a whole group at one time.
>>525637>future city design competitionShit, that's still around? Link? I participated in 2007, forgot about it until now.
>>527557It honestly helps when you have a complete disregard for topology and just worry about softening edges when you need to. You're absolutely correct though that sketchup quickly becomes a tedious nightmare even with helpful plugins when doing complex curved objects.I'd seriously advise anybody that REALLY wants to make this stuff in sketchup to download and pirate any plugin they can to build upon the scaling tools and manipulation of edges.
>>527870oh for surei use sketchup daily for work and have 25+ plugins, i would say i use at least 10 a day for very simple stuff i suggest sketchucation.com if you cant find what you want on the google plugin store they usually have more advanced stuff there
