3D Warehouse tag : 3d challenge 096

Challenge Runs - (11/16/2009 to 11/27/2009)


  1. 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 creator 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.

    Please refrain from using background images in your models as it is the model itself that is being judged.

    You'll notice a new link on the main page that directs you to the First Place Certificate area to which winners are able to print a certificate with a picture of their model detailing their excellence. You can access the page through the main page of the blog.

    Good Luck!!!!

  2. You said "ass" when you should have said "as many".

  3. Started yesterday with collecting info for modelling a Penny Farthing. Worked this evening and finished it. Hope you will like it!



  4. ok ive been lookin at the Sketchup warehouse and been finding alot of Sketchy Physics things, how do i get that to work on my computer??

  5. download the right version ( assuming you have sketchup 7, you would need sketchyphysics 3... which is kinda diffucult to find) install it under sketchup 7, plugins. should start up as soon as you open sketchup after the install. hope that helps, it worked for me anyhow :)

    1 pt: I would like to give a point for LowriderKing and Bicycle-concept by Dalexd, but I can't give both, so I've chosen to give a point to Dalexd. Both very good, but I like the conceptual design more.

  20. This time it's 'heavy to decide on'. There are more than three good models.
    cathy.tritschler some parts are flawless some aren't
    CK you made your task very well
    DALEXD I like your concept bike
    HenkieTenk your spokes commit a murder

    3 points: CK - Boy's bike
    2 points: cathy.tritschler - Vélo d'enfant
    1 points: Penny Farthing - HenkieTenk

    sorry DALEXD, HenkieTenk's model was uploaded earlier

  21. 3 Points / Penny Farthing / Henky Tenk : Good model, realistic & stylish.
    2 Points / Chopper-Bicycle / DALEXD / : Good technic& style.
    1 Point / Vélo d'enfant / cathy.tritschler : cute model & texture.

  22. 3 points : Penny Farthing/Henkie Tenk - It's very stylish and I love old things
    2 points : Boy's bike/CK - Very detailed model
    1 point : Bicycle concept/DALEXD - Very original
    (I wish we'd have 4 points to give because I like
    LowriderKing too)

  23. very tide ... hard to decide...

    3 points / Boy's bike by CK – for the high level of details and accuracy
    2 points / Penny Farthing by HenkieTenk – clean model and nice presentation
    1 point / LowriderKing by Sketchmaster Tóth – good details, good skills…overall good model

    No more point allowed, but … Vélo d'enfant by cathy.tritschler and Radio Flyer Classic Red Tricycle by Taylor are also very very good
