This extension adds a toolbar (and some menu items) that lets you easily place several common 3D shapes (geometric primitives).
You can find many of my projects here (with the most recent on top). These tend to be larger projects. I usually post smaller projects (and news) in my blog under the respective categories.
Following is an index of my Projects pages on this site.
This plugin allows the user to lay arbitrarily-oriented faces flat on the ground. This helps in producing cutouts, as CNC-prep etc. Use on any single face or multiple, coplanar faces. Works well in combination with an unfold tool to flatten shapes.
This small plugin adds a news browser to the SketchUp Help menu. Now you can follow news and tutorial blog posts but also Twitter and Facebook postings as well as forum discussions all in one place – without even leaving SketchUp. Clicking the link will get you to the original article (on the source website).
SketchUp extension that allows you to share a SketchUp model to the online 3D viewing, rendering, and sharing website Sketchfab.
A university of 27,000 students and several thousand more faculty and employees is a very complex environment whose spaces and places are experienced differently by different audiences.
This project sought to request feedback from students, faculty, employees and visitors to UMass about their favorite places on campus. This was done by providing a website that allowed to crowdsource feedback by letting users place a pin at their favorite locations and submit a comment.
The best way nowadays to set up information displays like these is to have them simply consist of an LCD screen and a Raspberry Pi, with the mini-computer connected to the internet and set to only display a single webpage. This project shows some of my implementations.
This is an overview of my graphic design work at UMass. These are mostly conference announcements, program flyers, postcards or posters.
With all my digital work, it is always fun to create something that you can hold in your hands afterwards.
This code editor offers an easy and visually appealing way to create and modify Ruby scripts directly within SketchUp, Google’s free 3D modeling software.
These scripts can be used to create geometry, add functionality or add data within the SketchUp 3D modeling environment.
This project explored the application of the visualization capabilities of Infrared Thermography in conjunction with three-dimensional models of buildings. Three-dimensional modeling is a powerful tool for visualizing and representing building conditions that is used by architects, builders, and contractors. Also, a three-dimensional model is better understandable than a more abstract two-dimensional representation (like a floor plan or an image).
This SketchUp extension was created out of a need for having extensions available in a “locked down” computer lab setting (similar to my solution for AutoCAD). It also provides an easy way to use extensions in SketchUp without having to install them – therefore making SketchUp start (and possibly run) faster. In addition, you can use this tool to run any external ruby code (e.g. for development purposes).
I conceptualize, design, implement and am maintaining a fair number of websites for myself, UMass and other entities. Most of these are WordPress-based CMS-type sites.
To keep track I figured I should keep a list of all of them. You can find it here.
