Deleting My Sketchup Designs

Ok so I’m going to be deleting all of my Sketchup designs off here since I really want to focus on putting up my actual project photos instead. I think it will make me feel like I’m not just dreaming of my projects anymore. I’ve come to realize that no matter how great my designs look in 3D animation they never look the same or STAY the same after I build them for real. Keep your eyes open for my actual wood projects and let me know what you think of my work! I’ll also be posting the original Sketchup designs with my finished projects so you can see how my project evolved from the computer to the work shop.

I don’t think ‘deleting’ would add any value – it can only…well… delete it.

instead of deleting designs- why not just ADD completed projects? I personally like seeing both the original design, and how it came out at the end, comparing and seeing the progression from theoretical design to the piece in realty.

I usually post both the SU design and the completed project if I have those as sometimes the SU render can show certain aspects of a project that are otherwise hard/impossible to view.

Anyways – go build something! :)

Yeah I completely agree, but I just change, update, resize, manipulate or even trash my sketch up projects 100 times before I even think of starting them so all the designs I’ve posted here have already been changed or scratched completely.

I’ll post my sketchup designs for the projects I finish so everyone can see how my projects evolved from the computer to the real world!

maybe it’s time to create a section on here called “designs”. similar to projects, it would allow people to post their sketches/sketchups/drawings/mockups for others to “critique” (for lack of a term)

might be a nice idea.

I agree completely I just don’t like to muddy up all my blogs with designs that I might not create. That would be a great idea since projects is for actual projects and not designs.

As far as I know you can’t draw sawdust in sketchup. Not yet anyway. Only one way to create it.

Hey Scott! Been a while. Glad to see you are back on LJ’s. I my humble opinion, I would just start building. Use sketchup as a starting point only and build from there. I think very few if any build to EXACT plan. We change, we add, we move, we screw-up, we BUILD. Just kick some sawdust brotha. Looking forward to your work.
