Sketchup Tutorial - How to Make a Room in SketchUp

This article will give you clear instructions on how to use your room space in SketchUp when designing your beloved room.

1. Floor Plan

Your closet is in the cutout space. Imagine you could create your design. It is not advisable to break down the roof if you avoid having the roof cave in. This segment of the model only handles with the rectangle tool.

A floor plan of your room had already been created after you had measured its dimensions. Your measurements were exact because you had typed them in the little box at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.

2. Depth Creation

This step required the use of three tools; a push and pull tool, a line tool, and a selection tool. You initially raised all the sides by pushing and pulling the hotkey P. The hotkey L uses to activate the line tool. The door features a solid space above the push-pull.

The ceiling should form and then erase. By pressing space on your keyboard, left-clicking an object you wish to erase, then pressing the delete key, you activate the select tool in SketchUp.

3. Window

Windows are essential to every room. Making the hole for the window was as simple as marking out where you wanted it.

Frame

This hole looks pretty nasty at this point. The best option for staying within the theme would be simple metallic trim. Trimming is a very simple process to make a beautiful frame.

Glass

It was as simple as making a block and painting it to look like glass. You should be able to find translucent under the materials tab.

4. Door

As a way of tying the room together, this door uses the same frame as the window. You can use a folding door instead of a traditional doorway. This door creates a triangle of ties with the lamps. Both are quite simple to build.

5. Wall Sockets

You decided it would be appropriate to add wall sockets to your design since you use electricity a lot to charge batteries and power computers.

Three rectangles can be used to create the main body of the document. Wall sockets consist of two parallel plugs. Compared with the other two rectangles, the third one is smaller. By connecting the corners of the small rectangle to the nearest corners of the larger rectangle, you can create a pattern. For the screw to install, a small circle with a valley near the surface, marked by two lines, is appropriate. Plugs are made using the same method. Each line slices in plugs.

6. Book Shelf

While this is pretty straightforward, it takes a while to complete. Each side of the cube has four circles. You then stretched the circles out. Within the circles you just made, create smaller circles. In addition, the top was overhung. All the pieces are attached like logos to construct the frame.

7. Work Table

Create a counter using a rectangular prism that colors like glass. If it were a single block, you would place it in the corner of your room. Once you had drawn the rectangle, you could extend it out of the sides of the counter. Your next step was to push it out as far as you desired.

Your 2-d graphic of the brace creates with arcs and lines. A copy then makes for future use. When you were satisfied with the original brace thickness, you pushed out the original brace. Then you moved the previously copied sections to the braced model and colored each section accordingly. After copying and pasting everything, you moved and rotated it to place it correctly.

9. Bed

A number of different tools are used during this long and complicated process. An ideal bed should be streamlined.

Legs of Bed

The follow me tool, circle, arc, and push-pull tool are necessary for this step. You started by hitting C for the circle tool. You then pulled the circle up a bit after you had created it. A tangent line drew on the circle. Follow me cannot be activated with a hotkey, so you must select it by clicking tools at the top of the screen. You held the top of the cylinder, left clicked, and dragged the cylinder along the arc. You'll need patience with the follow me feature as it can be a bit finicky. You used the space key to select the entire structure, press G for the group, and then used the arrow keys to scroll back. All items don't group in this way. You can copy and paste it next by pressing CTRL C and CTRL V.

However, the technique for the other leg differs. You are creating another cylinder using the move tool, hotkey M after you extruded the circle around the curve. It positions inside each leg. You can use the tape tool hotkey T to measure the distances between each leg to ensure the bed is level.

Coloring

A paint bucket can access by clicking B. Wood, matte black, and charcoal black were the materials you used for the boards. Corrugated metal makes up the legs.

10. Wardrobe

Having a wardrobe was necessary. So you could store your clothes. You had to put it in the closet since you did not have much space left in your room. You had to make your closet industrial since it was very heavy.

It was time to use something fresh since you had already used a lot of the metal beams. You used the same wood your bookshelves used for your closet to tie the space together.

There is a bottom-most part used for shoes and a middle part for all your normal apparel. The bottom-most part uses for shoes, and the middle part has holes to prevent muddy or wet shoes from draining into the floor. For hanging dress shirts, there's a beam at the top.
