I love College Football in general, and specifically the CU Buffaloes. So, I used Folsom Field as inspiration. I also used Layout, which comes with SketchUp Pro, and used the style feature to add a more hand drawn look in certain views.

How cool is that. I like the details you’ve picked from the stadium. It works well.

Very, very cool…love the stairs.

Just a note. Styles are available in Sketchup directly as well. Layout is a good tool though.

Thanks all for the feedback. Bob, good clarification. You can use styles in SketchUp from the windows>styles option. Styles, by the way, are non-photo-realistic rendering options in SketchUp http://www.sketchup.com/?title=new%20features. I used Layout to lay out my ortho views with dimension strings. I couldn’t upload those to photobucket though, because it does not support pdf’s (Layout only exports pdf’s at this time). BTW, if I were to edit this project, and I would because it needs it, I would scale it width wise a bit. Oh well, it was fun to do.

Great looking sketchup and inspiration. I’ve been to the stadium. It is a work of art in it self. My wife Peggy grew up in Boulder. Her sister owns the Tiger Herb Company Store and Found Under Ground consigments.
