SketchUp 3D Challenge #235: Travel Trailer


Challenge Period: Monday, 11 April 2016 - Sunday, 24 April 2016

Travel Trailer
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia 
A travel trailer, camper trailer or caravan is towed behind a road vehicle to provide a place to sleep which is more comfortable and protected than a tent (although there are fold-down trailer tents). It provides the means for people to have their own home on a journey or a vacation, without relying on a motel or hotel, and enables them to stay in places where none is available.
For the purposes of this challenge, you may design and model a tow-able travel trailer (including fifth-wheels) of either an existing model or one from your imagination.

SketchUp 3D Challenge #234: Home Office/Computer Room


Challenge Period: Monday, 28 March 2016 - Sunday, 10 April 2016


The concept of a home office is increasingly becoming more common as time goes on. The personal computer and the ability for people to telecommute to work has made a separate place in the home almost an absolute necessity. These rooms are also a place to take care of the finances and even a quiet place to read (or just to escape!)

For the purposes of this challenge, you are to model a room for a private residence to be used as a home office and must feature a personal computer as the focal point of the room. The room can be modeled after your own home office or something from your imagination.

SketchUp 3D Challenge #233: Umbrella


Challenge Period: Monday, 14 March 2016 - Sunday, 27 March 2016


An umbrella or parasol is a folding protective canopy supported by a framework and attached to a pole. They are meant to shield the user from rain or sunlight or for both. When paired with a handle resembling the head of a parrot, they may be used as a transportation device for magical nannies. They are primarily hand-held and portable for personal use but larger versions may be freestanding and stationary.

For the purposes of this challenge, you are to model an... umbrella.
