THE 256 LETHARGICDOG GEEK CHALLENGE #003/256


Challenge #003: Your Hometown Skate Park with Sketchup

GOAL:
The goal of this challenge #003 is to use Trimble Sketchup (Used to be Google Sketchup) at www.sketchup.com for designing a Skate Park.

DESCRIPTION:
There’s not much to be said about the skate park itself. Everybody knows what it is. But it has to be made of at least three modules, two at both ends and one in the middle. I expect some street art on each face, based on photos or anything else.
Regarding Sketchup itself, make sure you download the free version (Make), unless you have other projects that require advanced features.

ACHIEVEMENT EXPECTED:
In order to succeed, you have to use the Sketchup App, available at http://www.sketchup.com.
After the Skate Park is finished, you will have to export it into a 2D picture (PNG format), so then you can publish it on any of your favorite social networks.
Should you need any help for getting started, you will find many templates and members achievements on the Sketchup site (check the “Learn” Menu). Hundreds of YouTube tutorials are also available.

If you can get close enough to the picture on my sample above or even better, or if you prefer to user your favorite 3D design app instead, you can consider it a success and choose another LethargicDog 256 Geek Challenge.
Have fun, and good luck !
