Using Google Sketchup to Design Grow Rooms

Post by Weedguru Higher » Wed Mar 17, 2010 10:48 am

Using Google Sketchup to Design Grow Rooms

Google Sketchup is an easy to use, FREE, 3D creation software. It is an amazingly easy program to learn, use, and utilize. With it you can create anything you want in 3D. Personally, I use it to make a to scale replica of my future growing projects.

You can set it up so that it measures to scale. This means as long as you measure the stuff you want to implement into 3D, it will be the same size on the program, as it is in real life.

Here is an example of how I use Google Sketchup to plan ahead for future grow operations (to scale):

Here is a link to where you can download the software:

Here is a link to a list of video tutorials showing you how to use Google Sketchup:

And last, here is a link to the Google Sketchup 3D Warehouse:
3D Warehouse

3D Warehouse is a place with a ton of user submitted 3D models made using and compatible with Google Sketchup. Just type what you're looking for and search. Here are examples of premade 3D items that can be found using 3D Warehouse:

I typed hydroponics and got a ton of results, the famous EuroGrower by GH being one of them:

I typed in closet grow and got some cool results also!

Anyways, just thought I'd share with everyone the potential of this software if you are patient and serious!
