Artisan for SketchUp: Creating an Armchair

Open SketchUp and add Artisan, an add-on that allows you to create, edit, and optimize organic shapes without a problem. We can both reduce and increase the number of polygons in the mesh by using this tool.

In artisan, low poly rough modeling is crucial to the creation of an armchair. For greater control, use the line tool for manual triangulation. Next, subdivide and smooth the test.

Download Artisan Organic Toolset for SketchUp

Then, you can undo the changes and refine the low poly model again. It is possible to refine the model further.

A second test of the model is using the Subdivide & Smooth Tool. This internal face was causing unwanted effects and can be deleted.

Several unwanted holes were found and will be fixed using the Crease tool. Vertices & Edges can be locked in place using the Crease Tool so they won’t move when the model is divided. If you would like, you subdivide and smooth again after the crease.

If there are any gaps, you can check. Afterwards, you undo the changes and refine the model. If the armrest needs to be checked, you subdivide & smooth it again.

An adjustment of vertices is made to adjust curvature and add details. With the line and move tools, you can add more details.

It’s time for the final details to be added to the base model. The base model is complete & now for the final details. You can be texturing the model using SketchUV and Road-kill. Now you can successfully create an armchair using Artisan in SketchUp.

Ways to view SketchUp Model in ArcGIS Urban

Three-dimensional models are vital as it helps to envision what new changes and development could look like in the future. It has become a prerequisite to using the models to get a better picture of what changes and development are there to come in the distant future.

By using ArcGIS Urban, we are able to upload 3D models to view various project use cases for a better understanding of the natural world impacts of the potential developments. The requirement of a scene of a project will show as a closer to reality image and not just abstract drawings.

In this article, the steps for exporting the SketchUp models and then importing the model into ArcGIS Pro, sharing the work into ArcGIS online, and lastly publishing the model as a Framework to an ArcGIS Urban Project.

Exporting from SketchUp

The first step will be to export the SketchUp model into a format that can be imported into ArcGIS Pro.

1. Opening up the SketchUp Model.
2. Select the full model (by dragging a box from right to left), and Right Click the model.
3. Choose Make Component and Name it.
4. Select Replace selection with component and click Create.

Once we have a model that has one feature, let’s add the geolocation, which will be helpful later when we place the model in Pro.

“He knew SketchUp was from Trimble however didn’t know about the equipment and programming arrangements Trimble, and BuildingPoint as Trimble’s authentic merchant, advertised.

“When he was, he was quick to converse with us about how Trimble innovation could function in with what he was at that point doing and the favorable circumstances it would bring. It didn’t take long for him to see that the appropriation of the RTS and programming would be a jump forward.
