Even though we're sitting under about 2 feet of snow here in DC, I'm still hard at work putting together the February Projects of the Month. If you haven't signed up, why not? It's just $36, which comes out to just $1 per project, three projects per month for 12 months. A no-brainer!
Here's what subscribers will be getting this month:
Model an iPod
Everyone loves to model the gadgets they have lying around their house, and an iPod is really fun to build in SketchUp. It's got it all: curves, text, shapes, and colors. But there are some tricks you can use to make this project even easier than you'd think!
In honor of Valentines Day next week, this project shows you how to make a broken heart!
Or for another way to phrase this: you model half a heart, and mirror-copy the half-heart to end up with a complete heart.
SketchUp comes with a few types of bricks, various tiles, several translucent window materials, etc. But wouldn't you like a bigger selection of materials and textures?
This project shows you where to find many more materials you can use, and how to set up your own collections in SketchUp.
To get these fun projects, and 11 more sets just like this throughout the year, sign up here!
