3D Challenge #036 - USB memory stick


Note: Please read the guidelines for participating in the challenge. The purpose of the challenge is to have fun and bring SketchUp users together and help each other learn and get better at using our favorite 3d modeling program. We will remove comments that are objectionable or offensive.

This week's challenge:

USB memory stick

This week we are going to model the present day replacement of the good old floppy disk. The USB memory stick or flash drive is not that old yet as it was introduced in 2000. The main improvements of the memory stick, compared to the floppy disk, are it's size and reliability. Eight years after it's introduction they have almost completely replaced the floppy disks and are a standard besides the CD and DVD. They come in very various types like funny USB sticks, fingerprint USB sticks, creditcard shaped USB sticks and others. This week the object again is very small, so we expect a high level of detail. Textures are not allowed this week, not even for a brand name. This means that all the geometry, including text, has to be created in Sketchup. The design of your memory stick is free to choose.

Good luck ALL!

  12. Why isn't my "USB memory stick" model in the voting list for challenge 036?

  13. a.j.unknow, your memory stick, the "Impossible USB" was not entered because it is more of an Optical Illusion than a usable stick. The Optical Illusion challenge was already done as Open Challenge #7.
    You do have 4 other models submitted so it shouldn't be a problem if it is not in the voting list.
    Good luck with your other models.
