STL files are a common file type that contain information about 3D geometries. In this tutorial we’ll go over how to import and edit STL files in Sketchup! This can be useful if you are trying to use a 3D printer or create a complex and detailed model in Sketchup.
If you haven’t already, be sure to check out our other Sketchup speed model tutorials for a Moon House and a cozy attic bedroom! In this tutorial, we’re going to show you how we took one of Urukki Saki’s creative pieces of video game concept art and turned it into a 3D Sketchup model!
When modeling and rendering objects in Sketchup, it’s important to add details that will create a realistic final product. In this tutorial we’ll take a look at how to soften edges and round corners in Sketchup! This can be useful when trying to make three dimensional objects look more realistic and less computer generated.
Modeling curved objects in Sketchup can be tricky, but in this tutorial we’ll go over a few ways to create domes in Sketchup! Domes are common in architecture because they are efficient in transferring loads. It’s helpful to think about how this works when modeling your own domes.
