Google is really incredible.
I decided to mock up one of the towers in SketchUp this morning to get some spacing I needed for the spring supports. Easy enough with a little reading.
But I thought, why not use the model to see what it would look like in Nevada? I geolocated the model to the Black Rock desert to get the right ground texture. Then I duplicated the towers to get a sample arrangement. Then I found a model of burningman someone built a few years ago. Then I animated a fly through. Then I published it to YouTube.
In total about an hour’s worth of work. All with free software and very little training. Geez.
So it’s a starting place for the fundraising video…
