SketchUp 3D Challenge #262: Helmets

Challenge Period: Monday, 24 April 2017 - Sunday, 7 May 2017

Helmet

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia 
A helmet is a form of protective gear worn to protect the head from injuries. More specifically, a helmet aids the skull in protecting the human brain. Ceremonial or symbolic helmets (e.g. UK policeman's helmet) without protective function are sometimes used. The oldest known use of helmets was by Assyrian soldiers in 900 BC, who wore thick leather or bronze helmets to protect the head from blunt object and sword blows and arrow strikes in combat. Soldiers still wear helmets, now often made from lightweight plastic materials
In civilian life, helmets are used for recreational activities and sports (e.g. jockeys in horse racing, American football, ice hockey, cricket, baseball, camogie, hurling and rock climbing); dangerous work activities (e.g. construction, mining, riot police); and transportation (e.g. Motorcycle helmets and bicycle helmets). Since the 1990s, most helmets are made from resin or plastic, which may be reinforced with fibers such as aramids.
For the purposes of this challenge, you may model any known type of helmet from any era you choose.

Challenge Period: Monday, 10 April 2017 - Sunday, 23 April 2017

Chandelier

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia 
A chandelier /ˌʃæn.dəlˈɪər/ is a decorative ceiling-mounted light fixture, a distinct type of pendant light. Chandeliers are often ornate, and normally use incandescent light bulbs, though some modern designs also use fluorescent lamps or even LEDs. Crystal chandeliers have more or less complex arrays of crystal prisms to illuminate a room with refracted light. Chandeliers are often located in hallways, living rooms, dining rooms, and recently in bathrooms and bedrooms.
For the purposes of this challenge, you may model a chandelier of any design and light-source you choose as long as it fits the description above.

SketchUp 3D Challenge #260: Sundials

Challenge Period: Monday, 27 March 2017 - Sunday, 9 April 2017


Sundial
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia 
A sundial is a device that tells the time of day by the apparent position of the Sun in the sky. In the narrowest sense of the word it consists of a flat plate (the dial) and a gnomon which casts a shadow onto the dial. As the sun appears to move across the sky, the shadow aligns with different hour-lines which are marked on the dial to indicate the time of day. The style is the time-telling edge of the gnomon, though a single point or nodus may be used. The gnomon casts a broad shadow; the shadow of the style shows the time. The gnomon may be a rod, a wire or an elaborately decorated metal casting. The style must be parallel to the axis of the Earth's rotation for the sundial to be accurate throughout the year. The style's angle from horizontal is equal to the sundial's geographical latitude.
In a broader sense a sundial is any device that uses the sun's altitude or azimuth (or both) to show the time. In addition to their time-telling function, sundials are valued as decorative objects, as literary metaphors and as objects of mathematical study.
For the purposes of this challenge, you may use the narrowest or broader definition of a sundial as long as the sun casts a shadow to indicate the time.

Challenge Period: Monday, 13 March 2017 - Sunday, 26 March 2017

Traffic light
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Traffic lights, also known as traffic signals, traffic lamps, traffic semaphore, signal lights, stop lights, robots (in South Africa), and traffic control signals (in technical parlance), are signalling devices positioned at road intersections, pedestrian crossings, and other locations to control flows of traffic.
For the purposes of this challenge, you have been given the green light to model any type of electronic or mechanical type of traffic signal from any part of the world you like. What ever you do, make sure it's done before the light turns red.
