Extensions: 10
I am a licensed architect in Hawaii and California. Most of my work experience is in the hospitality industry, resorts and hotels. I enjoy modeling in SketchUp and writing ruby scripts. I have written a few SketchUp extensions for the purpose of automating some of my architectural modeling. I refer to my extensions as Instant Scripts -- Instant roof, Instant Wall, Instant Road, instant Terrain, Instant Site Grader, Instant Fence & Railing, Instant Window & Door, Instant Stair and Instant Cladding.
