Final submission

Here is the link to the final submission:

The link will redirect you to the groups blog page where yo can gain access to the final Revizto, sketchup, process manual and word document file. You will also be able to find what was edited over the last week post our presentation to the class.

Further progress for final submission (WEEK 13)

More images trying to get all relevant files merged into the one file so we can begin aligning everything up accordingly. I won't be able to continue using my laptop for this, it's lagging for long periods of time, or not responding:

Progress for final submission (WEEK 13)

As part of our submission, we are compiling a document to submit to anyone wanting to use the programs that we used to complete this project who want to recreate their own virtual experience of a museum/building. the document is in three sections, and here is my contribution (Section C):

Progress for the final submission this week (WEEK 12)

Some updates on work I have completed for the group project:

I started to export the model into Revizto from SketchUp to play around with Revizto and to see if it would be successful or a complicated process. First issues were light coming through in areas of the model due to incorrect modelling techniques in SketchUp (walls not meeting each other, gaps in roof structures etc) so I began fixing those up (and as a result I had to redo the entire curved roof structure to ensure it was one solid block, you'll notice it looks a little different). Pictures attached:

After i replaced the roof and fixed any errors in the model, I then exported the file into Revizto and started to import the objects into the file to see how it would come together. I find Revizto to be quite difficult to navigate around, I figured out how to merge files (our sketchup files, with the objects provided) but once I would get the object in the file, it was so difficult to move it into the position you wanted it. I was given three options to select when importing the object, and I have figured out that "center of the screen" is the easiest, and I have also realized (through alot of trial and error) that after you have clicked "OK" after the import, you cannot move that object again until you are merging another object. Here is a picture of what I was working on:

After I had the objects imported into Revizto, I started to import the 123D catch images of the older parts of the museum that weren't required to be modeled in SketchUp - these made my computer lag SO much, and again, were very hard to navigate around the screen - and every move you would make, would make the computer lag longer, here is an image of where I'm up to at the moment. with connecting the 123D catch image with the file:

This weeks progress for Arch1392 (Week ELEVEN)

Over the last week, our group had divided the current work load so that when we meet again in class (today) we can go over the project as a group and list out the next stages of the project and where we will go from here.

The roles for the last week were split into groups of:
- Walls
- Windows and doors
- Structural elements (columns etc)
- Roof

My role was the roof. I have attached a few different  screenshots of the work I completed and how i modeled the roof onto the model after the walls were completed.

The images I have attached are progress shots as i believe the walls were modeled incorrectly on the mezzanine level, affecting my ability to model the entire roof. The images/plans/elevations/sections were helpful, but at the same time there are elements not really covered, so the incorrect walls was some what expected, but an easy fix.

Remuneration (group 5) for Arch1392 (Week ELEVEN)

Remuneration group presentation:

- Great introduction to the presentation, great use of informal YouTube clip to get the point across in a humorous approach.
- Clearly presented, both members of the group were well informed and required minimal use of printed notes
- Good use of statistics relevant for students, comparing UNSW to different universities with the success of students finding jobs relevant to their degree after completing their degree.
- Answered all questions very well, one student related the presentation back to an interview he had last week and the salary he was offered (which was below the minimum wage) and they gave very great advice on how to approach the contract and how to negotiate it.

- The statistics were a little repetitive, could have been summarized much quicker 
- The presentation was very basic, a few slides with just text (few images) and the video was a YouTube clip, this project (in my opinion) was completed in one night - the standard was not on par with all of the other presentations
