3D Challenge #038 - Sci-fi power plant

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:

Sci-fi power plant

Another week, another challenge. This week we will have to use our imagination to create our models. The challenge is to create an imaginary power source and to design a power station around it. As with all the power plants, the goal is to produce electricity on an industrial scale. The size, shape, location and other design principles are free to adapt to your power source. Maybe your power plant has to be positioned on the surface of mars or maybe on the bottom of the sea, depending on the power source you created. As the challenge is highly imaginary there are no restrictions this week. Jump in and start modeling!

Good luck ALL!

  1. General notes:

    From this challenge and in the future, there will no obligation for a blog entry anymore. It is still allowed to post a link to your model or additional images, but it is not required anymore to submit a model to the challenges. The 3D Warehouse tag is still required though and should be added when uploading a model to the Warehouse.

    You can use the hyperlink code creater on the frontpage of the blog to create the code for a hyperlink in your message. Copy this code and paste it in the comment box on the place where your want the hyperlink to be.

    Challenge suggestions are welcome to be placed on the blog. Items will be noted and compiled on the moderator’s list. At that point, the initial comment for the suggestion may be deleted so as to maintain a streamline challenge thread for use of posting entries for the challenge and comments to models. Challenge suggestions have always been welcomed and taken under consideration.

    Good luck with the challenge...
