Learn to make several complicated shapes with sketchup

This sketchup video tutorial demonstrates how to produce various complex shapes with the use of sketchup, the powerful 3d modeling software for designers and architects.

In this tutorial, two intuitive plugin called round corner and curviloft are used to make some of these complex shapes.

RoundCorner performs the rounding of the edges and corners of 3D shapes along a 2D profile, in 3 modes: Round corners, Sharp corners and Bevel. RoundCorner also supports concave corners (always rendered as Round) and non-orthogonal edge faces. Corners can have 2, 3, or more edges.

Curviloft belongs to a script that is developed to Loft and Skinning useful for creating surfaces from contours. Curviloft comprises of various different tools to facilitate you making more advanced shapes.

• Loft by Spline attaches individual contours, open or closed, with smooth splines
• Loft along Path attaches contours, along a specified rail curve.
• Skinning generate surfaces surrounded with 4 or 3 contiguous contours
