Modern Plywood Chair complexity level – intermediate

A&AÂŽ 2012


BUILDING A 3D MODEL OF PLYWOOD CHAIR WITH GOOGLE SKETCHUP! Many people are endowed with great talent. Simple design solutions brings a great success. I found a few products on the Internet. What is said, that the chair must be with four legs? I looked at it from another angle and I tried to prepare these ideas for SketchUp users. So I prepare for you modeling instructions and the same models - Modern Chair Plywood Design Ideas by Marco Santos and Modern Chair Plywood Design Ideas by Cody Stonerock. I am a furniture manufacturer and have a tendency towards modeling furniture. Everything I do is my interpretation of what I see. Of course, Google SketchUp has made the process relatively easy now that I have learned to master the 3D modeling process of SketchUp and you can also if you follow my instructions. 'How did you make it?' is a question I am often asked about my 3D moddeling work. My answer is always, 'It's never been as simple as it is now with Google SketchUp!'


EXTRA TOOLS REQUIRES (PLUGINS) Remember, there are always several ways and methods to overcome your modeling challenge! Important tools from

As always, i create a cage by dimension for the model. Very accurately draw a contour of frame. I have four main segments.

With plugin ArcCenterPointFinder I find the central point. It will rotate about its the frame of skeleton. Red, yellow and green segments I move to the border by dimension.
