Week Eleven: Post Two

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):


Cube with a hole cut through


A rectangle with rounded edges


Weekly Sketch 10

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:

Week Eleven: Post One

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.

Week Ten: Post Two

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).

Weekly Sketch 9

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:

Week Ten: Post One

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!

Week Eight: Post Two

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). :)

Weekly Sketch 8

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:

Week Eight: Post One

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:

Week Seven: Post Two

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:
