Sketching up the place


I modeled a house in virtual reality. My notes on the survey of existing conditions and benefits of software drafting. Enjoy!

Starting with a pencil, notepad, and several different length tape measures, I took dimensions. Sketched the exterior dimensions of the building, foundation, and carport. Next I measured the interior dimensions of the rooms and windows. Estimating the pitch of the roof I derived its dimensions. Finished up my notes with the front porch and back deck.

I turned to the SketchUp environment for three-dimensional modeling on my Mac. The 'push-pull' tool to transform two dimensional objects into the three dimensions is great. I used the 3D inferencing feature to make sure my input was correctly aligned. I learned to create components, groups, and layers to manage the objects in my model.



looks nice! good work :)

Great Job!

Thanks for sharing. Happy Birthday.
