Mr. Reynold’s CTE classes are using Sketchup this year for modeling. They have been practicing with the tool and are now working on creating houses. Sketchup comes with a robust set of library objects with which to build just about anything. In addition, add-ons make it possible to solve various modeling challenges. Textures and paints can be applied as well as positioning the sun to see how a structure might look in various seasons of the year. A few students are working with Mrs. Lind’s Virtual Reality Club to export their models for import into the software they are using to create virtual environments. Here are a few examples of student work.
