    Sketchup School Assignment

    5/26/2020

    Overview

    You should be well on your way to designing the basic floorplan of your school.  You should 

    continue through the list on the assignment sheet for this week.  I would like for you

    to have another 3-6 sections completed by the next time we meet. If you would like to start using the 

    3D warehouse to fill in some details, that is fine. Just remember the more you download, the slower

    your computer will run.

    Things to know

    1. Your floorplan should have multiple sections designed.

    2. You can design and create anything your would like on your own.

    3. To use the 3D warehouse you must first create a Trimble account to do so.

    If you have problems setting up an account, you can find step by step instructions

    here. Trimble account help

    4. You will need to use your student email address to create the account on Trimble.

    5. You do not need to submit your school yet.

    Please do not hesitate to email me with any questions.

    Period 4 & 5 

    Sketchup School Assignment

    5/12/2020

    Overview

    You will now be taking your Sketchup skills and applying them to design your own school. I am not looking for a 

    traditional school. I am looking for you to be creative. Design a school into a star, flower, snowman, or even your favorite logo.

    The idea is to design the school to be something like you have never seen as a school all while still being drawn in a functioning size/scale.

    We would normally be measuring our school to double check our scale and design features. You will now need to measure your home

    for the size of doors and windows. You might have to do some research when it comes to other measurements.  Do your best, I completely

    understand this might be more difficult. I have attached a powerpoint of a standard classroom at Tohickon. You can base your design off of

    that powerpoint.

    Things to know

    1. You will be working on a rough sketch first. Make a plan on where you want to go with your design.

    2. Use your rough sketch and start drawing one room, just to try and see how to do it. 

    3. You do not need to add anything in your rooms. We will add amenties last.

    4. As you go you can add color and other textures.

    5. In one week, I would be happy to see you have at least three areas of your school designed.

    6. Use the handout to check what you need in your designs.

    7. Please realize this is an ongoing project. It is not due in one week.  You are to design the school to your liking. 

    It just needs to be designed with believeable dimensions.  For instance, I gave you an example of a classroom of 25’x25’ 

    that is the exact size of some rooms at Tohickon. If you make a room that is only 5’x5’ it will not function well for a class of 30.

    It is up to you to determine the size and shape of your rooms. You are only working on the layout; overall shape, room size and shape,

    colors, door and window openings of your school. You do not need to put anything in your schools like desks, chairs or other amenities at this time.

    Please do not hesitate to email me with any questions.

    Things to know

    1. You will need to dimension each shape on Sketchup.
