Thats Maya, where I’m a bit more ‘at home’ as it gives much more fine control over everything. This was rendered using Maya’s default rendering engine.

it was part of an animation project I made some 8 years ago. CG that was imposed onto a live scene.

I like sketchup for what it is (and being free is a major bonus) but sometimes I just wish I had my set of Maya tools at hand.

I’m still working on my chess pieces, but here is a little chess set I put together from some woodworking models Delta blue vs Powermatic gold!

You guys are really amazing. I’m afraid even if I could learn to use Sketchup or any other program as well as you guys do, I would just wind up sitting in my easy chair creating stuff on my laptop. Frankly I would rather be in the shop (like I have a choice) and I don’t think I have enough years left to reach your skill levels. Maybe you guys should start a business. We submit a rough sketch of our design and a description of construction specifications to you and then you create a set of detailed drawings with a cut list that we can download from the net. You can call the business Lazy Mike. (sorry Larry if you’re reading this).

Mike, like Dave said – there are some of us that actually do that already. they are called ‘designers’ / ‘product designers’ etc. and produce high resolution high detail production plans for furniture and other designs.

Yes, but do you do it cheap enough to make it affordable by us poor hobby woodworkers? LOL.
