Hi all,

I spent a whole vacation day on making a library of (pot) plant models.
The individual models were originally obtained from the 3d Warehouse. I tried to improve their textures and colors (mostly desaturating them) so they can be used in Sketchup + Podium

Here are the links to the models:
PLANT COLLECTION PART 1
PLANT COLLECTION PART 2

I hope you like them,

Regards,
Kwistenbiebel

Enjoy the models!

Biebel

Hi all,
I would like to add a tree that I created - its very high poly count and maybe not worthwhile, but maybe the masters can figure something out to make it better.
Not sure if this is the right place for this, please excuse any intrusions on the thread.
Thanks.

I am moving on to TREES now

This one is for our friends that live in tropical areas:

PALMTREE (.skp file attached))


I found this model on 3Dwarehouse (credits to  'anonymous'). The original was untextured so texturing and rendering it using Podium was just one step away.
Here is the Skippy file. Feel free to use and abuse .

cheers,
Biebel

For the interested people,

The 'TREE FACTORY' works like a Tree Generator.
 It is actually a sketchup file that holds the different parts of 'a' tree. I will also include the original manual.
You can  easily make new custom trees. You can  substitute the 'leaf component' if needed with any kind of leaf to create different species and texture the bark.

Screenshot: 'Tree Factory' parts:



I hope some creative people will use it to make their own tree models/species to render with Podium.. PLEASE SHARE THEM   (no doodles but good usable trees to render with Podium).

TREEFACTORY:  .SKP ATTACHED  + TUTORIAL

BROADLEAF TREE 2 (.skp file attached))



This tree took me about half an hour 'to model' using the 'tree factory'. It's not perfect yet but it does the job...

hey dude this is so cool. Ive used your plants in one of my models and it turned out pretty awesome. Ive been looking SO long for stuff to put at the base of the model, like bushes and vegetation but could never find any nice stuff. Those grasses you had was really nice and made a boundary wall look pretty believable when i had put those on. If you find any more of those too, bushes and vegetation you can put at the base of your model, im all ears lol. Hey, still this is great stuff!!

Thanks Silver,
I also found the grass to work really well. Glad people can benefit from it.

Cheers,

WILLOW  TREE (.skp file attached))
This one is based on the tree above...I changed the leaf component and scaled some branches....
It's a bit messy, and chaotic though. ... I  should be doing the assemby of parts more pragmatically for cleaner results with less polygon count...perhaps next time
