Custom Res Rear Cross Sec Upper Gable 1-18 by Built4ever Custom Res Rear Cross Sec Upper Gable 1-18 by Built4ever
Another 3D model in progress for a home I'm designing. This type of 3D cross section uses real framing measurements to build a 3D model of rafters, 2x6 walls, etc., to check the interior clearance for a second floor room with a contoured ceiling. Very powerful software indeed. I can pull out the measurements of any component, such as exact rafter dimensions, and put them on a final plan. Now, the carpenter won't have to think any more, just assemble.

I like that you've created a vaulted dormer design, but if the builder doesn't have to think about what he's doing you might run into a measure once, cut 4 times, aw crap we gotta buy more lumber scenario.

This is actually a rearward facing gable, I just showed limited framing to get the point across. Hopefully, builders actually study the plans and build them as I draw them. Many don't.

Wow!  An actual human!  Is this a first for you?

HE HE HE I tried a cute lady but she looked like she belonged in a kitchen. If I start drawing people into my sketches I'll add too much time to the drawings. Now, I DO enjoy drawing a pin-up girl from time to time.

Oh, that's RIGHT!  I'd forgotten your pin-ups.  Still, I don't think I've seen any humans in your architectural sketches ...

I would have to draw them about 2 millimeters high on some of these.

Yup. Getting faster and better at it quickly. I was a little clunky at first. Just wait til I build up an entire frame for a custom home I'm designing for a client! Then the young guys won't laugh at me!!!! He he...

I have been using it for some time to design furniture for my woodworking.  Some of the complex curves and radii still confuse me with Sketchup, but the more you goof with it, the better you get.  :-D  I work on an oil rig and I've been recruited to draw up technical stuff several times to send to our Houston office to the engineers for evaluation and so far it's been an invaluable tool for seeing how something will REALLY fit together.  Forget Autocad!
