SketchUp 3D Challenge #277: Cat Condo

Challenge Period: Monday, 20 November 2017 - Sunday, 3 December 2017

Cat tree

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A cat tree (also referred to as a cat tree house, cat condo, kitty condo, cat stand, cat post or cat tower) is an artificial structure for a cat to play, exercise, relax and sleep on. 
Cat trees vary in height and complexity, with most cats preferring features offering height over comfort, particularly if tall enough to allow a clear survey of their territory. While most cats seem to prefer tall cat trees, some prefer options which offer shelter or a secluded escape, which may be at any height of the structure.

SketchUp 3D Challenge #276: Toll Booths

Challenge Period: Monday, 6 November 2017 - Sunday, 19 November 2017


Originating from toll houses (where toll takers once lived), toll booths are used to collect fees for road construction and maintenance. Automation is quickly leading to their obsolescence but for now they live on.

For the purposes of this challenge, you are to model a toll plaza of any size you choose. You may include the modern electronic toll collection or automatic number plate recognition systems, but they must appear in addition to booths.

SketchUp 3D Challenge #275: Heavy Equipment

Challenge Period: Monday, 23 October 2017 - Sunday, 5 November 2017

Heavy equipment
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Heavy equipment refers to heavy-duty vehicles, specially designed for executing construction tasks, most frequently ones involving earthwork operations. They are also known as heavy machines, heavy trucks, construction equipment, engineering equipment, heavy vehicles, or heavy hydraulics. They usually comprise five equipment systems: implement, traction, structure, power train, control and information. Heavy equipment functions through the mechanical advantage of a simple machine, the ratio between input force applied and force exerted is multiplied. Some equipment uses hydraulic drives as a primary source of motion.

Rafting

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Rafting and white water rafting are recreational outdoor activities which use an inflatable raft to navigate a river or other body of water. This is often done on whitewater or different degrees of rough water. Dealing with risk and the need for teamwork is often a part of the experience. This activity as a leisure sport has become popular since the 1950s, if not earlier, evolving from individuals paddling 10 feet (3.0 m) to 14 feet (4.3 m) rafts with double-bladed paddles or oars to multi-person rafts propelled by single-bladed paddles and steered by a person at the stern, or by the use of oars.  Rafting on some sections of rivers is considered an extreme sport, and can be fatal, while other sections are not so extreme or difficult. The International Rafting Federation, often referred to as the IRF, is the worldwide body which oversees all aspects of the sport.
For the purposes of this challenge, you are to model a recreational raft designed for use on a river.
