3D modelling fun
I've been toying with the idea of building a little office in the garden so I can free up the spare room in the house. Having looked around at the exhorbitantly priced commercial offerings, (£8000 for an insulated shed anyone ?), I decided that I'd be much better off just buidling one myself.
With this in mind, the opportunity to be geeky presented itself and I sought out some 3d rendering software that I could use to play with some mock-ups. After trying a couple I stumbled across Sweethome 3D.
It's a free design application which runs on Windows, Mac and Linux (yay !) It's really simple to use, and even let's you do fly-through video.
My first bash was fun, and only took about 20 minutes to do.
I even did a (very) rough and ready fly-through video, just for fun. I'm running a much more complex one with better quality now, but the rendering takes a while !
