Sketch-Up: Renderings.

In addition to the animated walk-through, we were asked to create rendered perspectives for printing as a deliverable for our final. Here are a few looks at the two apartments I rendered for this project.

SketchUp / Catch-Up.

This is my animated walk-through created with SketchUp, Podium and Podium Walker. I would like to do it again (it takes a long time to download) trying different view angles as I find the scenes I created to be limited. It feels so good to have this project behind me and I feel like I made tremendous strides in 3D modeling the past few weeks.

Weekly Sketch: Wyndham.

We don't have a weekly sketch assignment this week for 212, so I thought I would share my sketch for studio. This week we had to present on our ideation for ways to transform the Wyndham lobby.  I would like to create feature dividing walls made of translucent 3Form materials and brass to coordinate with existing brass details. My concept for this proejct is "qualities of the moon"

Sketchup: Tufting.

So much excitement here in Sketchup world! I found a plugin called "Soap Skin" that lets you "inflate" or "deflate" shapes! It is AMAZING. I am working on tufted headboards and realistic bedding at the moment and can't wait to pop this into my floor plan!

I had to create this logo for the plans in a couple classes, and I am so happy to have a little "stamp" to throw everywhere now!

SketchUp-Catch Up.

I think I am getting the hang of things! Maybe? The layers and components are still getting mixed up a little somehow but this is beginning to resemble the space. I am making changes as I go along to make it look more like what I want in the end.

Weekly Sketch: One Point I'd Like to Make.

I might feel behind in everything, defeated by my schedule, and tired from being in school as long as I have...but gosh if I am glad that I at least know what a one-point perspective is (even if the one above is pretty crappy). Knowing that I have learned how to do perspectives is helping me sleep better at night. Or something.
