This is an exclusive video tutorial for sketchup users for learning how to create the design of a curved ramp in sketchup.
To create the model of curved ramp the following types of sketchup plugins are used :-
Fredo6 Tools (CurviShear)
FredoTools group a series of individual plugins. By providing them as a single package, it is possible to lessen the footprint on Sketchup and get rid of setting up each plugin separately.
CurviShear is a small independent script that facilitates to deform a curve or a set of curves by shearing them vertically along their contour. It is generally what is required to approximate CURVED RAMPS.
Curviloft – Curviloft produces surfaces from curves by Lofting and Skinning
Loft by Spline unites individual contours, open or closed with smooth splines
Loft along Path combines contours, along a given rail curve.
Skinning makes surfaces bounded by 4 or 3 contiguous contours
JHS Powerbar – This tool is actually a compilation of robust extensions from other developers, like TIG, Thom Thom, Rick Wilson, Christina Eneroth, and more.
