day 2175 – render glitches

sketchup glitches getting in the way of updating hampton prototypes. what’s modeled isn’t what comes out in the interactive rendering. it’s not something that can’t be fixed, usually simply closing and reopening the file or removing the item and replacing it will do the job. most updates for the casual scheme are complete queued and waiting to be rendered. part of a renderer’s life cycle is clicking the render button and waiting for the crop to appear

day 2160 – hawaii tradeshow

back to work the day after a long weekend didn’t have me jumping out of bed for joy. i almost overslept because i had forgotten to turn on the recurring the alarm clock. good thing my fitbit alarm woke me up quarter past six. the day could have been even worse; at least i’m doing something fun like rendering for the hawaii tradeshow. no olympic lifting today like my regular tuesday because i had gone yesterday

day 2149 – new spot old spot

funny after swapping desks several times within the last year, i’ve come a full circle back to my old spot. the only difference is i’m not sitting here as part of the marketing team as opposed to the design team. there’ll be more traffic and noise where i am now, but i like that i get some additional meeting space and round table behind me. wherever i am situated, my workstation setup doesn’t really change much

day 2148 – first renderings

a look back at my first marketing rendering i did for the kits collection brochure. a lot of new learnings happened during my first crack at sketchup and vray plugins. i like that i’ll have a lot more freedom to explore sketchup and vray as a whole while creating branding for my own work. i see this also as an opportunity to improve the many skills i’ve longed for

2093 – bored

the journey has been quite rough the last little while, mainly referring to the work aspect. sometimes i just feel so unfulfilled at work these days because the waiting game continues. my kits collection rendering is delayed because the sketchup vray license is having issues. as a result, i’m killing time just doing floor plan conversions until the korean brothers can get it working again. i’m just trying to get through the week in one piece

day 2092 – second cup

most days i get by with one cup, but today i went for seconds. i’m feeling antsy and not at the same time because i have a deadline i know i won’t be able to make. there’s nothing i can do if all the remote computers are having sketchup vray license is having issues. i’m ticked off at home because my dad is throwing a hissy fit over something that sounds so minor. i’m just going to do my part and support my mom when necessary

day 2033 – lumber

cut some lumber with my dad to get ready for my next do it yourself project. my dad has the basic tools but not a woodworking workshop at home. it made cutting wood slightly more tedious and difficult, but still got the job done nonetheless. i still need to gather more material and go through this same process again. i’m hope this will all turn out as well as i drew it up on sketchup and cad
