SketchUp is 3D modeling software for professionals. SketchUp is easy and intuitive, allowing anyone to model in 3D quickly and accurately. Using 3D models, designers can make more informed decisions, communicate project details, and share ideas with colleagues and customers to reach a common goal.
This sketchup video tutorial demonstrates how to produce various
complex shapes with the use of sketchup, the powerful 3d modeling software for
designers and architects.
In this tutorial, two intuitive plugin called round corner and
curviloft are used to make some of these complex shapes.
performs the rounding of the edges and corners of 3D shapes along a 2D profile,
in 3 modes: Round corners, Sharp corners and Bevel. RoundCorner also supports
concave corners (always rendered as Round) and non-orthogonal edge faces.
Corners can have 2, 3, or more edges.
belongs to a script that is developed to Loft and Skinning useful for creating
surfaces from contours. Curviloft comprises of various different tools to
facilitate you making more advanced shapes.
• Loft by Spline attaches
individual contours, open or closed, with smooth splines
• Loft along Path attaches contours, along a specified rail curve.
• Skinning generate surfaces surrounded with 4 or 3 contiguous contours
