How2’s sketchup model to revit

decided to ditch the translucent for the corners and halves concept (remembered studs are pink too)

modelled a mattress in 3DS Max according to this very nice tutorial and tried to put it in but it just won’t import! did a SketchUp dxf too but is black! the tutorial trawl continues…

half wall translucent? :(

week 7 studio presentation :|

- Jen: what’s missing is the inhabit corners, edges, then leave it, like a shell empty.

like retail stacking? obvious and clear and there.
and arranged logically for assurance.

can’t believe how pain-free it was to topo in Revit! :) redo-ing cos pretty sure previous scale wuz wrong :( tutorial by the as always awesome nicadman

playing around with sketchup cos forgot pencil today, trying to figure out the walls being filled with stuff, yet not thru like a slot? like with the coreflute, it’s kinda inaccessible, this is grab-bable from both sides. haha easy to smash through too! doubles to allow light? coreflute over? what about the bathroom? hmmmmmmm.

ext walls - walls,

interior walls - framing (thot might as well, it’s pretty and wood)

red things - cans :P

week 6 Friday

Jen brought us some luscious butter paper today! 

it’s amazing this, love it :D such a happy and yummy colour and great to draw on, takes lotsa materials. I think this is the one I’ve been looking for, got non-yellow pieces in a first year VCD paper, and I swear the tutor had it in a box roll that said ‘Baking Paper’. So I went and got some and IT’S NOT IT nope! that don’t take ink =_= she probably just had it in the box for the cutting bit. but yes I think this is it, very lovely.

Anyway! we arm cut these and I had no idea how to plot my rooms (or even how to cut/switch up the house as many people have asked me about) so just drew a ‘shadow signature’ of the rooms as is, with the central, low light ‘camp-fire’ idea. some strip lighting running along floor-wall?

Then thought about the different heights people are (standing, sitting, lying) when doing the actions of the rooms required - bathe, eat, sleep etc. and put some sleeping bags (toes) down. thought back to the close proximity yet hidden rabbit at Makara and felt maybe it’d be safer to sleep under the windows as opposed to concealed areas like the passage way, or further from windows (darker shadows)

Jen said it’s great (yay!), suggested having a soft corner to burrow and sleep into, and not to design the functions like a normal kitchen island etc. e.g. do they shower on the light like a shower tray? or look at it whilst?

"all rooms are a lantern" :)

also that it’s okay to not stipulate rooms, cos the brief says programme ZONES not areas so if it’s built from the centre out, then all walls/corners are for sleeping maybe!

- last 2 images I just thought looked funky while comping in PS :P
