    Drawing a Waterwheel?



    I doodled this out this evening for a fellow who is learning SketchUp and is trying to figure out how to make one. He suggested a tutorial using this wheel as the subject. I'm curious if there'd be broader interest in something like that or if I should just do it for him. What do you think?

    Why do I think you used a lot of special techniques to do that? I can't imagine placing all of those paddles manually...

    Bent, you know, it really wasn't anything really special and most of it was the same couple of procedures over and over.

    Hmmm, I'd say I agreed with him, but I'm not really sure what he said?

    I know I'd find value in the tutorial...

    and you guys thought i spoke in a different language i would like to see it as well dave, not sure i could replicate it but it would be interesting to see how you do the step and repeat on a circle.
    and i am betting you done it in sections rather than just around the circle.. make one complete section and then just copy and paste and woolah

    Dave, I've not done any sketchup work at all however I need a waterwheel just like that. I have a koi pond in my back yard and I have (had) a waterwheel feature that got torn up a couple years ago in a bad storm that went through. I need too remake a waterwheel. I would be very interested in how this is made.
