Extensions: 1
Containerhouse has been doing the impossible with steel ISO shipping containers for over forty years. We repurpose existing containers and also fabricate buildings and structures from the ground up. In 2015 we took an interest in software containers and machine learning techniques. We were already utilizing SketchUp exclusively for the design of our steel containers, and quickly became interested in writing extensions. Our first offering is Containerhouse.AI™ 1.0, which uses random placements and rotations to offer potential layouts for container (and any other) floor plans. Version 2.0 is already in development, and will integrate a learning algorithm that will move away from pure randomness to a process that offers artificially-intelligent suggestions based on what you, the user, teach the algorithm. Stay tuned, and thank you for your interest!
This extension imports components and automates their arrangement within shipping container interiors and other spaces.
