SketchUp Lightsaber Tutorial 1 by Witch-King-42 SketchUp Lightsaber Tutorial 1 by Witch-King-42
My very first tutorial, a how to guide to making a high res lightsaber in Google SketchUp. The idea I came to me when Ariergarda www.ariergarda.deviantart.com asked if I could give him some pointers on using the program to model his lightsaber designs (all of which are fantastic by the way!) so I got a bit excited and began typing a ridiculously long note which even I had difficulty making heads or tails of when I finished, so in the end I settled on a short reply saying that I'd be happy to help, so I'd make a tutorial...and here it is! and it is still ridiculously long! AND IT'S JUST THE POMMEL! ah...well, in the time it has taken me to churn out this image, Ariergarda has already made three of his lightsabers into 3D models and he's done a great job, so even if he no longer needs it, here's my very first SketchUp tutorial for anyone who wants to learn how to use this great program!

download for the full view (or if your going to use it as a reference pic in SketchUp itself [see no.2])

some of those tools would be quite nice if they incorporated them into 3ds max, you can do similar things to that follow me tool, but you have to draw splines and what not

hm, it seems if one Cad program does something, the others go in the opposite direction, and that includes against eachother, so in the end, there is no perfect cad program, just a bunch of drowned corpses from where each Cad program's direction eventually made them run out of land...

fact. Programs don't float...except in cyberspace...
