I've been following the grids you mentioned, especially the scale at the side. While the resolution of these photos is good, it isn't great and what is confusing me is that the scale seems to say &quo ...

SDR - As always, you make a fine point. Let's try and explore this further. I started putting the Fir Tree cabin into AutoCAD. Once that's done, it will go into Sketchup. No promises as to how far thi ...

Can we discuss the materiality of this new Fir Tree cabin some? I'm very curious as to what the masonry would be. On the rendering it shows a heavy diagonal line on that huge retaining wall and there ...

My understanding is that the elevation has never been published. These drawings have been in private collections for a very long time. Iannelli had them and then they were sold to a private collector ...

I've never tried 3D printing so I can't say. My goal is to make renderings so it works well.

Sketchup. Not sure what you mean by "more robust" though. I'm able to create a high level of detail pretty easily. Do you use something else?

Oh wow, what a find! Thanks for sharing Rood and PrairieMod! I'd seen black and whites of some of them but it always referred back to the 1920s publication. Fantastic!

SDR, the wonderful David made a model of the E.A. Smith House. Is that what you're referring to?

I've been fantasizing recently about future models for David and I to do and one that is really fascinating me at the moment is the Lake Tahoe Summer Colony. I've got a copy of Frank Lloyd Wright: Des ...

Beautifully done JJM! The model is extremely fine and gives me a better impression of Taliesin I than anything else I think I've seen, particularly the aerial view looking straight down. The whole pre ...
