Hi @blackizzz. I'll have to do your line idea next time. Generally the same as what I was trying to do but your way makes it a lot easier to find the points. I like your models and if I ever use those items, I will probably want to use them (giving you full credit of course). I have some other models to post but I am literally walking out the door in two minutes to go on vacation. I'll post when I return.

Yea, I really dig chalices, so I dedicated a section to them. I have 4 now, a bubblegum monster, pink *******, and 2 no names. But the no names are struggling and don't look great due to what I think was a combo of bleaching/dinos, resulting from starving when my rank was to clean.

And I'm definitely leaving a spot open for when I find a deal on a rainbow or stained glass type.
Yeah, chalices always seem to come back, they are hardy when it comes to colony revival, had one go completely to skeleton on me and dots of it are already growing back after two months of full dead

Thank you blackizz. I've got several other models to upload to the warehouse. I'll post them as I go along. (Just don't get me started on all my PVC components models.;Jawdrop;Yawn)
@OllieNZ, Yep, that's how we've all started out. The planning stage is what got me started with it also. The good thing is that there is all kinds of free help and training tutorials on line. It just gets easier over time.

I've only used it for planning, unfortunately my drawing skills barely extend beyond doing boxes :rolleyes:
This is a great start! And precisely how I started as well, getting to know the push/pull tool is essential. I think I use the push/pull + Follow me 90+% of the time in Sketchup!

I'm not sure how much more effort I'll put into SketchUp, I'm trying to learn Fusion360 at the moment as I can use it for CAM for my CNC router.

PVC components are a ***** sometimes, I created a "library" of 12-63mm 90°/45°/T-couplings a while back.

But I've never had the will to sit down and do ball/gate valves :p They're just sooo much work!

This is the closet I've come to doing that...

:p
I'm with you! I see the folks who have 3D plans of their builds with every detail down to hose clamps depicted, and I can't even get to the crayon stage of what my tank will sit on.

For those of you that can do it, good on you. I'm really impressed, and wish I was at that level.
