There's a new Challenge for you Sci-fi creative types over on our affiliate group sketchup-overdrive.deviantart.…

You can find more details about it in the write-up here.…

The ultra short version of it is: Mars is starting to feel the effects of the terraforming process and humanity lives in domed cities. Between them an ultra high speed race takes place with vehicles that are  a cross between jet fighters, formula one cars and spaceships.

If that has got you're creative juices flowing please feel free to submit your WIP in the FCAI folder on sketchup-overdrive group.

Have fun.

Group Info

This group is to show that the 3d program Trimble SketchUp and a rendering program really is all we need to make good 3D Models! True artists don't need bulky and/or expensive programs.

Join now!
But only if SketchUp is a program you use and/or support!

OUR RULES! (Newcomers read this please)

Trimble SketchUp is a free simple-to-use 3D modelling and sketching program for both Mac and PC it can be found here:
If you then want to render the models (make them look more realistic) the program called Kerkythea is recommended, but that is up to you as an artist.

1. The entries in this group MUST be made in SketchUp! but can be rendered in different rendering programs such as Kerkythea etc.

2. Quality submissions will be allowed to get featured, meaning that if you don't have so much experience, you can still submit, but won't be able to get the submission featured

3. No pornographic, racist, ideological or religious models!

4. Use nice language, so if you don't have anything nice to say about a submission, don't say anything.

5. Constructive criticism is always welcome, as long as it doesn't violate rule no. 4.

6. All entries will be submitted to vote unless you're an admin, then they'll be automatically accepted

7. To ensure not to have TOO many of the same artwork the maximum amount of duplicates is 2, a duplicate is the same model but in a different angle, progressive WorkIn Progress is not concidered as a duplicate, since the model changes. Changing the scenery does NOT make it a new model.


Due to the fact that this group isn't super I can't rename the member types, but here they are:

Member: The regular member, is allowed to submit deviations, to any folder but the featured one, and the closed contest ones, all submissions are up for vote. Anyone can become a member at will

Contributor: is the regular administrator (admin for short) are able to accept or decline pending submissions, thereby having more of an influence on what content comes in, and what doesn't, and any of their submissions are automatically approved. Only those invited can be promoted to Contributor

Co-Founder: the most misleading, is the Super-Admin, and have been entrusted to be able to do most of the things in the group, they are able to change the page, manage deviations etc. Most of the stuff they do is automatically approved.

Founder: Is the one who founded the group (obviously) and is able to do whatever, whenever. Even change the rules at odd times. Though most of the major changes have to go through the Co-Founders to get fully decided.

Also, don't forget to check out or join our "sister" group: :iconkerkythea:

Anyone have any ideas for how to make a puddle of liquid on a flat surface? like a spilled drink on a flat floor?

I tried subdivide and smooth, but it creases the edges of the puddle.

Well bummer...…

Seems that Trimble really meant it when they said they would no longer honor file formats upto SketchUp 2013...

I do not have a screen shot to bolster these claims, but it's real... I tried to look up a known old model of mine that I am certain was SketchUp-8 format, and it was not available for download, which means a sheer metric tonne of legacy and old model files have effectively been made extinct and unavailable for folks with older Windows or systems that cannot support Su2016 and Su2017.

Good enough reason for me to consider making dA my distribution site for Su8 format files.
scifilicious Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2017  Professional Artist
Bit late :D To my knowledge DA doesnt accept Sketchup 3D files of any format
& u can still upload models made with previous SU formats,
& all WH models are still available for download only converted to SU2016 & up
.... But bummer indeed, Trimble sux ballzzz

Eh well... Trimble needs to make their funds with sales, so we can't blame them for pushing updated versions of sketchup so hard, however it is a bit difficult for folks whom do not have newer hardware or systems to handle the newer versions... such as myself.

I did find however that we can share skp files through deviantArt by way of zip folders.

Make your model, place it within a zip folder, or RAR folder, and upload that compressed file to devArt as a 3D Model under the Stock and Resources category. Alternately you could submit the RAR or ZIP under the Applications Resource category directly if you choose to.

That means folks like me with old sketchup versions which Trimble considers obsolete... can still share models with the rest of the community. And I hope others will follow this example and make use of devArt as well as Trimble's Warehouse, because again, folks with obsolete stuff can still make great things to share with others! :D
