FUN with Google Sketchup

Found a few threads on Sketchup

 

Got something to share? Have a link? Found that missing component in the 3D Warehouse?

 

I've seen plenty of Skecthup drawings here on NR.

 

Post your photo here with a link or search phrase to your model or request for a specific model.

Not saying I make models, but, fellow NR's may know where to find exactly what your after.

 

Here goes:

"125 wide reef tank aquarium with sump and LED T5 lighting"

download and "tweak" as ya wish.

Looking for a ReefKeeper PC4 module and Meanwell Drivers

This is my sketchup of my 45g planted cube.

Here it is, basically exactly as I designed it, except with the LED pendant suspended from the wall. Doors not on it in this pic, but obviously they are now.

i used it to design a cube sump that never went a head because earthquakes destroyed the tank

though i will use it again to design a similar sump for a better tank

You could lay it on a glass top assuming you leave adequate space between the led's and the glass for airflow. If you're handy with acrylic, you could make legs to set it on the tanks rim.

This is my latest build idea drawn in sketchup and then rendered.

Don't lay it directly on the glass, but building an acrylic housing for the fixture is pretty simple.

 

see my build thread.

Here is the sketchup of my stand. Looks nothing like the finished product

Also: Suggs, that render is fantastic!

I've tried google sketchup, but must not be smart enough to figure it out. Your sketchups look good, btw.

Neat.

 

Is it a split level design? Looks interesting.
