SketchUp 3D Challenge #238: Da Vinci Inventions

Challenge Period: Monday, 23 May 2016 - Sunday, 5 June 2016


Leonardo da Vinci was not only a painter, a sculptor, an architect, a writer, a poet and a scientist, but, also an inventor. His wide variety of interests and knowledge made him a polymath; a person who draws from complex bodies of knowledge to solve specific problems.

For the purposes of this challenge, you are to pick one of Leonardo da Vinci's inventions and bring them to life as a 3D model in SketchUp. Have fun and unleash your inner Renaissance man (or woman)!

SketchUp 3D Challenge #237: Transportation Tunnel


Challenge Period: Monday, 9 May 2016 - Sunday, 22 May 2016


Transportation tunnels are often made for rail lines and roadways where above ground alternatives are not feasible or simply unwanted.

While it may sound daunting for a 3D Challenge, SketchUp has all the tools you need for such a project. And while you don't need to model an entire tunnel, it is important that you model at least one entrance into the tunnel and a sizable length of tunnel. You may model an existing tunnel or one of your own design.

SketchUp 3D Challenge #236 - Bus Shelter


Challenge Period: Monday, 25 April 2016 - Sunday, 08 May 2016


A bus shelter is a structure at a bus stop that is designed to give riders a dry place to sit while they wait for their bus.

For this challenge you are to model a shelter for a bus stop. Remember, we are not looking for a bus station or terminal with ticketing facilities, just a shelter.

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.
