SketchUp 3D Challenge #197 - Snowflakes

Monday, 23 December 2013 - Thursday, 02 January 2014


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A snowflake is either a single ice crystal or an aggregation of ice crystals which falls through the Earth's atmosphere. They begin as snow crystals which develop when microscopic supercooled cloud droplets freeze. Snowflakes come in a variety of sizes and shapes. Complex shapes emerge as the flake moves through differing temperature and humidity regimes, such that individual snowflakes are nearly unique in structure. Snowflakes encapsulated in rime form balls known as graupel. Snowflakes appear white in color despite being made of clear ice. This is due to diffuse reflection of the whole spectrum of light by the small crystal facets.
Your challenge is to design and model a snowflake or snowflakes and then display them in a way that showcases them. An additional requirement is that the featured snowflakes must be three-dimensional and not simple 2D faces. Enjoy the challenge and Happy Holidays!

Standard Participation Rules apply.
