Using Imported Files in Trimble Creator

Using Imported Files in Trimble Creator

https://youtu.be/pOpmThy1KA8 In this tutorial I show yuou how you can import geometry that was created in SketchUp (and an image) into Trimble Creator so that we can add parametric behavior to it. I cover the basic import workflow, model cleanup, texturing, and parametric sizing here. Trimble Creator is a tool/service that allows you to create parametric "Live Components" for SketchUp and lets you come up with some cool designs (or product configurators). You can try it for yourself at creator.trimble.com. If you like, you can modify and download the Live Component that I created in this tutorial here. Have you tried Trimble’s Creator yet? Let me know below in the comments what you think about it. ...

Patterned Panels from Images and Formulas

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gu-8x8Y1dnw In this tutorial I show how you can use my Scale By Tools SketchUp extension to create various designs for patterned panels. We start with sine and power equations and then use images to form intricate screen designs. This video extends what I had covered in an earlier video, included here for reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmvTROcPETY I hope you are enjoying this tool.

Modeling a Log House

Modeling a Log House

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rokkx7EmZXM In this video tutorial I show how useful SketchUp's Solid Tools (especially the Trim tool) are when modeling a log house. The process as shown here makes it easy to create clean log overlaps and door/window cutouts. Note: I am not showing the entire modeling process here, just the principles based on two walls. You can easily expand this to other walls and windows, etc. Did you design your own log house this way? Let me know below in the comments. ...
