Going out next Monday to those who subscribe to our Projects of the Month (still on sale for $24.95 for a year!) are these three fun projects:
Giant Mutant Killer Ants
In this project, you use SketchUp to pick a spot on Earth and import some huge ants that will be taking over a city. Then you get too see what the creatures look like on the actual Earth (well, Google Earth, the next best thing).
This project shows how to use SketchUp's Walkthrough tools: Position Camera, Walk, and Look Around, to create an animated tour of a house's interior. (My animation from this project can be found in the next blog post - scroll down or go to http://3dvinci.blogspot.com/2013/04/walk-through.html.)
This project is better seen as an animation - by creating sets of stripes of various sizes, you can create a model that shows a Moire pattern, in which your eye fills in wavy black curves where no curves actually exist. (See my animation father down on this blog: http://3dvinci.blogspot.com/2013/04/sketchup-moire-pattern.html.)
