GoSimulate - The basic principle

No longer let your CAE software merely verify the flaws of your finished design, but let it instead guide you all the way, even from the earliest conceptual stages. Handle Complex Geometries Enmesh GoSimulate skips the tedious, time consuming, and inherently complex process of creating simplifications of the CAD geometry and automatically generates appropriate and adaptive meshes without the need of user interaction.

Time Saving Another significant time saving factor is that, the simulation cases are carried from the conceptual stage to final product by keeping track of face identities in your CAD model, and are therefore only needed to be defined once. The New SketchUp Viewer App Lets Architects Step Inside Their Models via the Magic of HoloLens. “The biggest problem an architect has is getting from the screen into physical space,” says architect Greg Lynn.

The New SketchUp Viewer App Lets Architects Step Inside Their Models via the Magic of HoloLens

Enter SketchUp Viewer, a brand-new mixed-reality app for Microsoft HoloLens, developed by SketchUp developer Trimble. With this new app, architects now have the means to fully immerse themselves and experience their ideas in 1:1 holographic scale models, jump-starting decision-making from inception all the way through to implementation. ‘Immersion Mode’ is the feature that gives users the abilities to inhabit their holographic models and move freely through them at any development stage. SketchUp Viewer, Lynn states, ‘’brings designs to life by bridging the gap between 2D, 3D and physical space.” Possessing a remote collaboration capability, the mixed-reality technology is set to transform the design process, empowering architects to more effectively visualize, present ideas and manage complex projects in real time.

Ropefall - a SketchUp plugin for ropes, wires, cables. Modern Canopies in SketchUp: Part 1- Sail Canopy Surface - Daniel Tal. As a landscape architect, I work and design in the urban environment, focusing on the 3 P’s: Parks, Plazas, Pedestrians.

Modern Canopies in SketchUp: Part 1- Sail Canopy Surface - Daniel Tal

My goal is to provide ergonomic and aesthetic design elements, encouraging the use of open spaces. Shaded gathering areas are growing quite popular, and tensile structures such as sail canopies are a beautiful way to provide shade. For designers, these structures are fun to model in SketchUp. A quick 3D Warehouse search provides some excellent examples. In Part 1 of this series, I’ll show how to create this sail canopy surface: In Part 2, you’ll see how I created the supports. Even if these types of structures aren’t in your wheelhouse, the techniques and extensions I’ll show are still worth learning – they can serve as a springboard for other creative designs.

SketchUp. SketchUp (formerly Google Sketchup) is a 3D modeling computer program for a wide range of drawing applications such as architectural, interior design, civil and mechanical engineering, film, and video game design—and available in a freeware version, SketchUp Make, and a paid version with additional functionality, SketchUp Pro.

SketchUp

SketchUp is currently owned by Trimble Navigation,[1][4] a mapping, surveying, and navigation equipment company.[5] The program's authors describe it as easy to use.[6] There is an online open source library of free model assemblies (e.g. windows, doors, automobiles), 3D Warehouse, to which users may contribute models. The program includes drawing layout functionality, allows surface rendering in variable "styles", supports third-party "plug-in" programs hosted on a site called Extension Warehouse to provide other capabilities (e.g. near photo-realistic rendering), and enables placement of its models within Google Earth.[7] History[edit] @Last Software[edit]

SketchUp Plugin Index. Rating: 5.0/5 (1 vote cast) This Plugin allows to optimize all textures in the model or selection.

This can be useful if you want to quickly share a file that is too big because of extensive textures, or you used photos directly from the camera and want to batch-downsample them to an optimal resolution. With nothing selected, it resizes all materials; with selection you can choose whether you want only the selected faces to be affected (only in selection) or whether the selected materials should be resized (in the whole model). SketchUp Plugin Index. Smooth Step Animation Google SketchUp Plugin Review. Reviewer | May 05, 2010 | Comments 0 Rating: 4.0/5 (1 vote cast) The Smooth Step Animation plugin created by user Whaat on SketchUcation.com is a simple plugin allowing you to create smooth scene transitions from one scene to another.

Smooth Step Animation Google SketchUp Plugin Review

It is quick and easy to use and works very well. You will need a program to stitch the images together in an animation. The Smooth Step Animation gives you the option of image size, frame rate, image format (jpeg and png) and the compression settings. Overall, the Smooth Step Animation plugin is a great plugin and definitely saves you time from creating your own scenes one scene at a time. Projection Toolbar Google SketchUp Plugin Review. The Projection Toolbar created by Didier Bur on SketchUcation.com is a simple toolbar that allows you to create projections from points, lines, or faces.

Projection Toolbar Google SketchUp Plugin Review

Some of the tools from the toolbar are more useful than others. A very useful tool from these sets is the 4th tool, “Project lines perpendicularly to a face” and the 5th tool “Project lines perpendicularly to a faces”, it projects a line segment down to a face. Normally to do this you would have to copy the line segment down and then connect all the edges to create the faces. Another one is the 8th tool, “Create lines at intersections of selected faces”, this creates construction lines at all points of intersection of a selected object.

Brainstorm Technology LLC: PhotoSketch Plugin. Brainstorm Technology LLC is the developer of PhotoSketch, a SketchUp plugin that enables the user to build 3D urban structures directly from photographs.

Brainstorm Technology LLC: PhotoSketch Plugin

Architects, designers, and entertainment content creators can now employ a new approach to create lightweight 3D models of existing buildings. These models, which typically consist of a few hundred phototextured polygons, are well-suited for use in online gaming and web-based applications such as Google Earth. The PhotoSketch plugin runs with the free or Pro versions of SketchUp 2015 for Windows and Mac OS. Overview PhotoSketch offers an intuitive three-step workflow: camera calibration, camera pose recovery, and photo-guided modeling, which enables the user to quickly build 3D models of existing urban structures from 2D photographs.

V-Ray for SketchUp Tutorial

V-Ray for SketchUp stands for a rendering engine that contains Global Illumination (GI) to facilitate the users arranging the lighting for whole scene easily. The tutorial highlights the process for illuminating the exterior in sketchup and vray hdri maps easily. V-Ray for SketchUp supports High Dynamic Range values, also called HDRI (High Dynamic Range Image). The VRayHDRI map is applied to deliver high dynamic range images (HDRI) and map them onto the background. Your browser is deprecated. Please upgrade.

Creating Realistic Lawns in SketchUp with Skatter.

Getting started with Skatter For any Skatter to occur we only need a surface and objects to skatter on that surface. Below you can see I have 2 components with an assortment of grasses in each component. I also have some lose indidividual objects to introduce to the surface to add more variation later. First we pick our surface as the host and then our Grass Assortments as the scattering objects this tells Skatter where we want to our objects to appear. So far so good but the distribution of the objects is not giving us the result we need. We can fix this in the Distribution panel in Skatter. There's a downside to using Random and Collision on larger surfaces, as it can become really slow as the number of objects increases.

Logarithmic spiral has fascinated scientists and mathematicians for a long time. Jacob Bernoulli, a great mathematician of the 17th century named it ‘spira mirabilis’, because of its extraordinary properties. Spirals are everywhere, they show up in plants, sea shells, water pumps, horns, jewelry, tree cones, vegetable, art, human ears, ancient artifacts and even galaxies. Spiral is probably the most important shape after straight line and circle. SpiraMirabilis tool allows you to create spirals in the most natural way – by drawing. No need to know the math or type in numbers, just grab the mouse and draw it, in the same way you would draw a line or a circle. You can also stretch it along the normal, making it a 3D curve instead of a planar one.
