You've got the talent to land a top job in 3D, but so do a lot of people. Sometimes the deciding factor in who gets the most exciting jobs isn't how great your 3D art is, but how good you are at telling people about it.
To help you land a dream job in 3D, we grilled the very people who look at your showreel and read your creative resume to find out what you need to do to make a killer application and get the job of your dreams.
Creating a piece of 3D art with a natural-looking landscape might seem like a challenge, but if you use the right tools then it's possible to generate a realistic environment with the minimum of effort.
If a tool or command doesn’t exist in SketchUp, Julia Christina Eneroth builds it. A designer and developer, Christina has published 66 extensions and plugins to Extension Warehouse, virtually creating her very own 3D modeling ecosystem (which she’s graciously shared with the rest of us).
Well, it finally happened: 3D Basecamp 2018 has ended. After nearly a year of scheduling sessions, ordering swag, and swapping emails with the venue staff, the best week of the year has come and gone… and what do we have to show for it? Plenty!
Full disclosure: I am totally biased and I love all things Basecamp. But, I can say that this year’s event in Palm Springs was something very special. Those of you who were there know exactly what I am talking about. For those of you who couldn’t make it, let me fill you in on a few things that made this Basecamp so amazing (and if you want to be in the know about Basecamp 2020, sign up for event updates.)
Ever find yourself exporting static images from SketchUp and post-processing in PhotoShop? With SketchFX Ex for SketchUp, you can achieve the same result directly within the SketchUp viewport.
3D Connexion has to date shipped over 1 million devices to CAD enthusiasts across the globe. Their SpaceMouse, SpaceNavigator and SpacePilot series support over 200 CAD applications. Those are staggering statistics to digest!
3D Browser Light and Full are completely different beasts. The Light Edition is strictly a file viewer. It extends the file viewing abilities of Windows Explorer to make viewing various 3D Formats possible within its own OpenGL viewer. It also allows you to view video, image and audio files. The 3D Browser Full Edition is more than a media manager because of the added options you get as compared to the Light Edition. It is a full fledged 3D asset viewing, conversion and file modification application.
Artisan is the result of over two years hard work and is more than just a refined update of it's predecessor Subdivide and Smooth(SDS). It is a complete re-work with a glut of new features added to turn SketchUp into a true organic modeling application.
