Hy  Tyro
Fantastic this Ivy generator!
But I´m having a problem.
How can I import back de file ".obj" to sketch up so I can do the podium render.
Thanks

SU doesn't import .obj files. Open the file in an app that does, and save as a .3ds file.

There are a couple of free Ruby obj importers, but the problem with the ivy generator is the size of the output files which get unmanageable for SU very quickly because of the amount of geometry.

I haven't made this work successfully, but if you have more luck, please post your results!

Hi RIcserza,
as bigstick and Stinkie said before, I managed to import the ivy with an obj.-ruby, but without textures and the poly-count is enormous ...

Better way would be to use a 3rd party program to convert the obj. into 3ds ...

I think Solo did an impressive render of the sponza model with this ivy ... must be around here in the forum somewhere.

Thanks Tyro, bigstick and Stinkie.

since solo's Herman Miller link seems outdated:

http://www.hermanmiller.com/CDA/SSA/Category/0,,a4-c996,00.html
(Herman Miller furniture, e.g. Eames, Nelson, ...)

For outdoor benches tables etc.  They have it in sketchup and in different formats.  Just click on "design tools"

skp formats

free section of a great site, it has all the best designers, known and lesser known

including a free Zaha hadid bench

(models are a tad on the heavy side)

also great inspirations for modeling your own

B&B Italia furniture - lots of 3d models free to download. Down side is that models are high poly count. Use polyreduce from here to make it lighter.

official furniture manufacturers have free or; register then free, 3d models available for download in 3ds format.

Some have been mentioned in posts above, some are not. I'll post a few links here to companies of which I think have  good 3d models (because there are also alot of lesser ones out there)

these are actually worth your time importing them into sketchup, cleaning them up a little (smoothing, tidy up unneeded geometry etc.) and then save them as .skp

http://www.meridiani.it/

http://www.poltronafrau.it/ (one portal that gives you acces over: http://www.cappellini.it/and  http://www.cassina.com/( they have license over  Le corbusier, macintosh and rietveld, classics)

http://www.zanotta.it/
http://www.arketipo.com/
http://www.minotti.com/
http://www.moooi.com  (when in, do not click on '3d files' but choose 'selected product by designer' thats where the goods are)

http://www.poliform.it/

http://www.aliasdesign.it/

http://www.fritzhansen.com/ (home of the arne jacobsen swan and egg chair)

http://www.mdfitalia.it

Lighting: http://www.artemide.com http://www.foscarini.com/ (alot is already in podiums browser, more decorative ones can be found here)


I pressume most of you know how to import 3ds to sketchup, these are all european brands, so when going to import, choose cm. then you will get the geometry in the properscale


enjoy

Thanks Bedo, do you know some free 3D software for simplifying geometry or some plugins for SU. I tried polyreduce with B&B models but it doesn't work that good.
