Models on this site are samples of work I attempted with an old free version of Strata 3D. I later found Blender, and learned some more. Lately I've discovered Google's Sketchup application, and I've made some good progress. I've done more thorough research on the lighthouse.
Motivation to model this particular light comes
from the fact that I was born and raised in Biloxi, and the structure is a part of all my
Biloxi lighthouse modeling with Strata 3D
|And now.. a new addition: Biloxi Light as
modeled in Google Sketchup!
(Maybe never will be finished)
|Unlike the Strata models, Sketchup has no
rendering machine, so what we see is the model
with simple materials applied.
There is no post-modeling work, such as enhancements
via PhotoShop or other editors.
For those who have the Sketchup application installed, this model can be downloaded and examined by way of Google's 3D Warehouse
Comments and advice can be left at my warehouse page. Please let me know if you use any of my models for your own purposes.
