In beginning our work in Sketch Up (having now finished up with AutoCAD), I find the program is a lot easier to work with (maybe this is due to the lack of button options?); which I thoroughly like and enjoy!
Below are images of the mock up shapes I made within the program (as they were assigned to us to complete):
This week we were asked to do two quick one point perspectives from the CAD assignment/apartment we've been working on for the past few weeks. Perspectives are really an area I need to work on-I really struggle with them. Below are the two quick sketches I did:
In working with AutoCAD last week I stumbled upon a youtuber that I found extremely helpful in the design process of that project. Although I do appreciate and watch the modules Stephanie posts on Canvas, I did find the information provided by this woman very helpful.
In continuing to work with, and completing the AutoCAD work we've been working with these last few weeks, I've come to enjoy the program as a whole.
I did feel this project was a tad bit large in scale for a first time user of the program, and therefor it was grossly time consuming and at times very VERY frustrating. But I do feel confident in the final pieces I've produced for this project. Below are images of my final sheets:
Cover Sheet: (I did not attend the field trip to Chicago like my classmate did, so the image on the cover is not one of my own).
Because my class was traveling to Chicago this week as a unit, we were asked to draw something we saw while walking in and around the city. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend this field trip with my classmates, so I Googled images of "tourist" attractions in the city and due the Ferris wheel at Chicago Navy Pier Park. I did this because I felt like if I were to travel there in the furture I would enjoy riding on it for the views alone. Below is the quick sketch I did for this week:
Coming off of spring break, we are wrapping up our current project with AutoCAD and moving into SketchUp.
I'm a bit behind with this AutoCAD project due to the studio project we were tasked with completing over spring break-and therefor, I'm extremely grateful for the extension Stephanie so graciously granted us on this assignment. I'm still currently watching videos/modules provided by Stephanie regarding the rendering process of this assignment. I'm excited to get started with it-and see how the final project turns out!
Going into Spring break we have "a lot" to complete before our next meeting in class. Although I enjoy working in CAD, I'm grateful that the rendered floor plan that is due will be done the week we come back-because I feel at this point that I will need a bit of help with that. What we do have to work on I am confident that I will enjoy doing.
(I'm also happy that I didn't plan anything during my break like some of my classmates had-because I know I have the time to do the work). :)
This week we were asked to work on our writing capabilities in our sketch book. We were asked to pick three fonts and three quotes and try to re-create them ourselves. Below is my attempt at this assignment:
This week we are continuing on with our CAD work. The more we work within the program-the more I come to appreciate and enjoy it. Below are some images of work I've completed this week within the program:
Having now completed the two sections required for Monday as well as a reflected ceiling plan, I feel that I can happily say that working within autoCAD is something I thoroughly enjoy doing. (Even if it is a tad bit difficult to work with at times).
Although I do enjoy drafting with an immense pleasure, I do have to say I'm getting a bit "burnt" out on sections and plans....
Below are images of the sections and ceiling plans I've done thus far in the program:
