Tree Sketch

Post by SectionAA » Sat Aug 25, 2012 10:21 am

An App for iPad allows creation of 3D trees and bushes.
It is brilliant and great fun. Be as conventional or quirky as you want.
An intro video is here http://vimeo.com/27366282

Files can be exported (via iTunes) only in FBX format, but can be converted using Autocad FBX Converter (free download) to OBJ or dae formats. (The documentation also states .3DS is possible, but that was not an option when I tried it).
There are some ready-made trees (see picture) but when exported these are such big files as to be un-usable. But it is possible to make smaller, more usable, foliage.

Good growing.

I heard about that app. Glad to see someone take it all the way thru to SU/Twilight.
It looks surprisingly good, if not a little lonely. Needs some accompanying scenery.

There is now a Sketchup plugin from 3dArcStudio, called Tree Maker. Makes a variety of 3D trees.
