SketchUp Pro is a 3D modelling computer BIM program used in the construction industry by a wide range of disciplines working on architectural, interior design, civil and mechanical engineering and urban design projects.
Chumleys Illustration initially builds digital 3D models in SketchUp Pro from PDFs, AutoCAD or straight from scratch models for modelling buildings and urban street scenes for many clients. Architects, engineers, urban designers and a vast array of clients designs have been visually communicated to a wide audience on projects.
The 3D SketchUp model is then imported into Lumion Pro which allows the final model to be presented as high quality visual images, impressive animated video presentations and live walkthroughs bringing the project to life.
2D illustrations and drawings are then produced from the model to promote the project ideas across to the viewer.

Running your own business nowadays in a competitive market is always a challenge. It demands continuously thinking up new ways of convincing potential clients to choose your ideas and designs over those of your competitors.
Many architects have made the jump from 2D drawings to 3D design, either using SketchUp, Revit or another similar 3D CAD package in combination with Lumion. Lumion takes these 3D designs and enables high quality still image renders and animated fly-through's.
Now there's something better than videos pictures. There is an easy, accessible way to let your clients take a look inside your models. By simply sending them a link through email they instantly see your models on phones, tablets and computers.
It works by me first picking several locations in my model in Lumion and uploading the finished model to MyLumion. Am email link to view your model on-line is then sent to your client straight away. He can the preset his projects with ease.
This technology allows for full control in several 360 degree scenes by the client. They can look around at will and get an excellent impression of what the designs are or projects look like with prospective clients and customers.
