SketchUp 3D Challenge #266: Tea Set

Challenge Period: Monday, 19 June 2017 - Sunday, 2 July 2017


The history of tea sets date back to the Chinese Han Dynasty and have been a part of many cultures around the world. The teaware design and style varies upon the culture in which they are used and ornamentation may vary based on the setting in which they are used.

For the purposes of this challenge, you may model a tea set from any period or culture you choose or create a completely new design from your imagination. Your set should include, at a minimum, a serving vessel (a kettle) for the tea, two tea cups, and a serving tray.

Challenge Period: Monday, 5 June 2017 - Sunday, 18 June 2017

Windsurfing

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia 
Windsurfing is a surface water sport that combines elements of surfing and sailing. It consists of a board usually 2.5 to 3 meters long, with displacements typically between 60 and 250 litres, powered by wind on a sail. The rig is connected to the board by a free-rotating universal joint and consists of a mast, boom and sail. The sail area generally ranges from 2.5 m² to 12 m² depending on the conditions, the skill of the sailor, the type of windsurfing being undertaken and the weight of the person windsurfing.
For the purposes of this challenge, you are to model a complete windsurfing board and sail of any class and the display it is a pleasing manner. Surf's up!

Shed

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A shed is typically a simple, single-storey roofed structure in a back garden or on an allotment that is used for storage, hobbies, or as a workshop. Sheds vary considerably in the complexity of their construction and their size, from small open-sided tin-roofed structures to large wood-framed sheds with shingled roofs, windows, and electrical outlets. Sheds used on farms or in industry can be large structures. The main types of shed construction are metal sheathing over a metal frame, plastic sheathing and frame, all-wood construction (the roof may be asphalt shingled or sheathed in tin), and vinyl-sided sheds built over a wooden frame.
For the purposes of this challenge, you may design and model a structure that fit the definition above.

SketchUp 3D Challenge #263: Armchairs

Challenge Period: Monday, 8 May 2017 - Sunday, 21 May 2017

Chair: Armrests

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia 
A chair may or may not have armrests; chairs with armrests are termed "armchairs". In French, a distinction is made between fauteuil and chaise, the terms for chairs with and without armrests, respectively. If present, armrests will support part of the body weight through the arms if the arms are resting on the armrests. Armrests further have the function of making entry and exit from the chair easier (but from the side it becomes more difficult). Armrests should support the forearm and not the sensitive elbow area. Hence in some chair designs, the armrest is not continuous to the chair back, but is missing in the elbow area.
For this challenge, you are to model an armchair, but not one meant for dining. You may model an existing design or one of your own and you may use any materials you choose if it is practical for human usage.

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.

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.

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.

Rock Climbing Centers are a great place to learn to climb or tp perfect your climbing skills in a safe and, at many times, indoor environment. Instead of the rock formations found in nature, climbers are challenged to ascend man-made walls with grips for hands and feet and simulated obstacles to overcome.

For the purposes of this challenge, you may design a rock climbing center to be indoors or outdoors (or even in combination) with the materials of your choice as long as the structure appears man-made.

SketchUp 3D Challenge #255: Spiral Staircase

Challenge Period: Monday, 16 January 2017 - Sunday, 29 January 2017


Spiral staircases are not spirals in the mathematical sense, rather, they are helical in shape and designed to be very space efficient. They can be made of any variety of materials capable of supporting the weight of the staircase and those climbing them.

You can use a variety of built in tools and extensions in SketchUp to accomplish modeling of a spiral staircase but the design is completely up to you. Just be careful not to let it spiral out of control!
