It may be summer, and maybe computer work is the last thing on your mind. But what better way to beat the heat than to sit in the comfy air conditioning working on some fun design projects? (Of course, when you're done, get outside and play in the fresh air!)
On July 15, here's what our Project of the Month subscribers will be getting:
Styles from SketchUp Artists
Displaying your models in the default SketchUp style looks decent enough:
But you can make things much more interesting by changing the style. SketchUp provides a few good ones, and you can download awesome styles for free from SketchUp Artists. This projects shows you how.
Whether or not you think crop circles are man-made or alien creations, they all have very interesting geometry. This project shows how to use SketchUp to create the famous South Field Crop Circle from 2000.
The 3D Text tool is quite fun, but it only creates text in a straight line. To get letters to curve, you need to project them, and a free plugin can help you make the letters 3D.
Sign up and have some fun! It's still just $36 for 12 months: that's $1 per project. Cheap thrills!
Anyone can design anything in 3D! http://www.3dvinci.net/
