Hi, just a quick question. Fantastic work by the way. Maybe you can describe your process when it comes to plans? I have always struggled with creating clear plans like the ones above. Do you do them in some program and then import them into Illustrator? Thanks for your help.
Not sure if you got my last post...just wondering if you could shed some light on your plans and your design approach? Would help a lot, thanks.
Hey Max, The process is really simple. I always maintain a working set of plans along side the sketchup models I build. The plans are created in AutoCAD (Revit would probably be more efficient to use). When it comes to the presentation of the plans, I hatch the walls black in CAD, but you could also import into illustrator and hatch there, or paint it in Photoshop similar to what I did for the section tutorial. Then use the Polygonal tool in Photoshop to select the necessary areas and paint with grey. I may do a quick tutorial to better explain in the future. Let me know if you need me to elaborate on anything. Take care
Just wondering if kerkythea is compatible with Mac? Impressive work btw
Daniel,They do make a MacOSX version but I have always had trouble getting it to work. But that was a couple of years ago when I was still in school, they may have fixed the issues since then.
Hey Alex, I just stumbled on your blog. You have really inspired me.
I'm an Architecture student from Singapore. I will be going through your tutorials more in-depth soon :) Thank you for all your effort!!
All the best!
Hi Alex, thanks for replying to the above post. Could you elaborate on the plans more? Do you mean you create plans in Autocad first and import them into Sketchup to build the model? Or do you take some work from Sketchup and import them into Autocad? Redraw them? Workflow wise, I know you go from Sketchup to Kerkythea and Photoshop. But you don't do detailed drawings in Sketchup and Autocad both, do you? Just a little fuzzy on this part. My models look really messy in Sketchup and I have to try to draw them by hand in Illustrator from 2D images of section cuts from there. Pretty horrible approach. I want to be able to create nice plans that are detailed and not just Sketchup objects. To me there is the construction side and the visualization side. Is there a workflow where I can make nice images and actual plans that are accurate? Architecture school is killing me. I can make nice images in Photoshop, but I really struggle with the details and plans.
@ MAX,I tend to work in Sketchup and autoCAD side by side developing both at the same time. I sometimes export basic line work from the Sketchup model into autoCAD. From there, I clean up the plans and add detail. I also sometimes import the CAD plans into Sketchup and model off of that. Its a lot of back and forth really. Having a clean sketchup model really helps with this process, but unless you are using Revit, there is no great way around this workflow.
