The three projects this month range from the practical to the whimsical and rather impractical. All of them are fun, naturally! If you're not a subscriber, it's just $36 for a year's worth of projects: 3 per month for 12 months. Sign up here.
Spaceship to Mars
Based on a SketchUp model and animation by math teacher Guzman Tierno, this project shows how to "fake" an animation of a spaceship orbiting a planet, by adding in a background image and setting up a few scenes.
Here's the animation I made:
Furnishing a House
A question I hear all the time is "how do I get furniture inside this house?"
It's pretty easy when you know how to use section planes.
This geometry project looks like 3D string art - one of those projects where you run string between pegs. But it's just a big set of SketchUp edges.
Once again, here's where you can get the Projects of the Month. Enjoy!
Anyone can design anything in 3D! http://www.3dvinci.net/
