    It's like dropping a coin in a well and never hearing the splash.

    Guess we'll skip the SketchUp challenges.

    Don't be discouraged Dave. I honestly wish I had more time to devote to learning new software. SU is on my laptop and I 'plan' to spend some time with it in June. The LOML and I are renting a fire tower for 3 days. Peace, quiet, and no people. Who knows, I might just learn something about SU!

    Actually, I've found them rather interesting, especially the solutions.

    I would try to do that as follows, though I'm not even sure it would work.

    The squared off portions are relatively straight forward, the turned portions I believe I would extrude a pattern of the profiles around a cylinder. Don't really know how that transition from turned to squared would be done.

    NO!!!!!! keep 'em comin!

    I'm just picky about the ones I do because they might take more time than I have at the moment. This one looked a little more time-hungry than the last one (i whipped that lattice up in like 15 minutes). It's really a matter of timing for me. I fully intend to sift back through these challenges when I have the time to focus on some of them.

    This one might have been a little hard for some folks - My follow-me around a cylinder isn't the greatest yet and I knew it'd take me a little while fiddlin' around to figure it out.

    Been fiddlin with it a bit here and found that you can extrude a half pattern around a circle centered on the top or bottom of the half pattern at the patterns center line. I'm thinkin on some way to intersect the turned portion to a block to get the transitions.

    Yeah Dave, these are great for learning. Just gettin to gettin to em is sometimes hard. I had five days worth of chores and stuff around the house over the 3 day weekend (San Jacinto Day is a State Holiday) and was in the shop till nearly 9:00 PM turning some pens for some folks at Church.

    Ditto here. Even when I don't have time (or SketchUp chops) enough to do them, I always learn from - and appreciate - these challenges.

    Did a very trivial version - no smooth curves, only one squared off face!

    So do I type something witty here?

    Well, I gave it a shot. Not the same design for the turned portion, but that was the easy part. Ended up intersecting the transitions (don't know if that even necessary) then connect a corner to the endpoints of the curve segments.



    Tedious doing the lines manually, there's likely a better quicker way that I am sure Dave will tell us about.
