What's Coming in our November Projects?

The three projects for this month are inspired by the awesome classroom model produced in the Design Charette from SketchUp Basecamp last month. If you are a subscriber to our Projects of the Month (still on sale for $24.95 for the year), here's what you'll get next week:


The charette model featured a "human sundial," which I didn't reproduce with an actual human, but instead modeled a more traditional, working sundial which tells the hour based on shadows.  You need to tell SketchUp where on Earth the sundial is located, then let SketchUp figure out the shadows.

Sundial Animation

Once you have your sundial, this project shows how to save scenes you can use to see its shadow based on the hour and season.

Translucent People

The people and trees in the classroom model from the charette are translucent silhouettes - a nice, artistic way to show entourage in a model. This project shows how to populate a model with silhouettes of poeple, and how to make them translucent.

To get these cool projects, and 33 more over the next 12 months, subscribe to our Projects of the Month.
