How to use Medeek Foundations to create the design of detailed building foundations

In this sketchup video, Justin Geis has presented an exclusive tutorial where he briefly shows how to create the design of a concrete foundation of a building with sketchup.

Here, a sketchup plugin known as Medek Foundations is used that is developed by Nathaniel Wilkerson. The plugin costs $15. A free trial version is also available. The plugin can be downloaded from SketchupUcation extension warehouse.

The plugin contains a simple interface for generating perfect 3D foundation and footing geometry inside SketchUp. This plugin employs the SketchUp Ruby API programming interface and supports SketchUp 2013, SketchUp 2014, SketchUp 2015, SketchUp 2016, SketchUp 2017.

The plugin facilitates the formation of the foundation types given below (Metric and US/Imperial):

  • Slab on Grade (Rectangle,Polygon) [containing garage curb and internal footing options]
    • Stemwall (Rectangle) [containing brick ledge and internal footing/floor beam options]

 Footing types:

  • (Under Construction)
    Engineering (US/Imperial):
    • (Under Construction) [ACI 318-14 Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete]

 With the use of industry standard practices, all foundation types are drawn and designed.

With this plugin, the users can produce either a rectangular or irregular (polygon) shaped foundation plan. Once the rectangular foundation is chosen, the outline is demarcated by just choosing three points which create the bounding rectangle (bldg. width x bldg. length) of the foundation.

The Medeek Foundation Plugin facilitates the users to perfectly illustrate the standard concrete foundations, footings and flatwork inside SketchUp and substantiate their architectural models in an efficient manner.

How to create 3D walkthrough animation of a building in real time virtual environment with sketchup & Kubity

The concept of virtual Reality is gaining popularity among the architects & real estate developers worldwide. The most challenging part in design-headed industries, is to satisfy clients concerning an idea, that mostly gets presented in 2D plans and 3D impressions.

Virtual Reality can obtain the full gamut where clients acquire a real-time view of scale and scope of a proposal. Any prospective errors can also be detected at an initial phase for rectification. The clients can evidently observe the portions of the design liked or disliked by them.

This sketchup video tutorial briefly demonstrates how a 2D floor plan is transformed into a 3D model with the use of Sketchup. The video also presents a walkthrough animation along with a preview of the building in a real time virtual environment through Kubity app.

Kubity is a powerful app to distribute 3D models in Augmented and Virtual reality. Kubity can easily convert .skp files and after that models are viewed with additional features like AR/VR and cinematic fly-through tour or distributed through a mobile to any person and any location.

Visualize, explore and show your 3D models on desktop, web, and on-the-go with iPhone, iPad and Android gadgets.

Rapidly allocate with anyone over text, social media, or device-to-device by scanning the QR code with your mobile or tablet. The models can be available anywhere devoid of a network connection.
