SketchUp 3D Challenge #214: Lighthouse II


Monday, 07 July 2015 - Thursday, 16 July 2015


Lighthouses are navigational aids for seagoing vessels that are used to mark dangerous coastlines and safe entries for harbors. Modern advancements like GPS have replaced the need for the lighthouse and most have been decommissioned. Of those remaining in use, the majority of them are now fully automated and have eliminated the need for a lighthouse keeper.

In this challenge, you are to model a manned lighthouse so you must also include living quarters for a lighthouse keeper.

Rule Change: Participants in challenges are now required to vote when the challenge is over. This is to encourage the community aspect of the challenge by giving the other participants feedback on their work.

Standard Participation Rules apply. Thanks to Michael Baudet for suggested the topic for the challenge.

SketchUp 3D Challenge #213: Vacuum Cleaners


Thursday, 25 June 2015 - Monday, 06 July 2015


Vacuum cleaners have become essential cleaning tools since their inception. They were originally invented by Hubert Cecil Booth as a device for his cleaning service and were mounted to horse-drawn carriages and powered by internal combustion engines. Thankfully electricity has made them a lot more convenient to use.
