Floor Plan – now in 3D!

Floor Plan - now in 3D!

(click through for larger version)


Now that I’m a full-fledged three-dimensional modeling pro (har, har), I took some time this week to update the floor plan we all started together. This (obviously) is just the bare beginnings. For one thing, I’m not pleased with the textures – they’re far too large! Makes the whole thing look like a tabletop model, even though I actually sketched it out to what I approximated as human-sized rooms. I may be able to find some way to improve on that.

Look forward to a future post, when I’m hoping to do a video fly-over, looking into rooms from different angles! Just dont, y’know, hold your breath.

  1. Hey Dave, that’s way cool. (1) You can post here (I wasn’t sure if that was enabled). (2) It’s more fun than just a plan. (3) A video fly-over is something I’ll look forward to before I die!! 🙂

  2. This is extremely useful Dave, as it helps compare the rooms for size. I’m going to be a pain and suggest a few possible changes:

    The bunk room looks too small compared to the cabin. It had about 5 beds in it, some double bunks, compared to only 3 in the cabin, and they were closer together I reckon. I think maybe the wall between the cabin and the front bedroom should move upwards, but I don’t know how to make the bunk room a little larger.

    The right side WC looks a little small (perhaps move its right side wall a fraction into the kitchen), as does the front right bedroom, while the right kitchen may be a little large.

    I’m inclined to think the left side lounge room should be more square.

    I’ll have a go at emailing some slight suggested changes. Ask Kathryn what she thinks too.

    This is fun!

      Not being a pain at all, Eric! This is what we’re doing this for, right? I’m quite happy to make some changes.

      Moving the ‘east-west’ wall between the cabin and front-right bedroom is quite easy. As is moving the WC wall toward the kitchen some.

      As far as enlargening the bunk room: were all those beds in one row? Would it make sense to widen the room (i.e., some were against the other wall), or should I just lengthen it?
