How to use push/pull tool in sketchup to generate new faces

This is another useful video presentation by Justin Geis. The video briefly highlights how to use push pull tool of sketchup to produce new faces.
The Push/Pull tool is applied to generate a 3D shape out of a flat face or slice a 3D shape out of any model. The push/pull tool can be used for any type of face along with circular, rectangular, and abstract faces.
Just click on a face one time to initiate pushing/pulling it, shift your cursor unless you prefer what you see, and then click for a second time to discontinue pushing/pulling.
Push/Pull is well matched with flat faces. In order to apply it for a curved face, apply something else.
Given below, some useful tips for using push/pull tool :-
If it is required to push/pull a face that’s is very hard to choose, use select tool to preselect the face and then push/pulling the face. If you require to make a fresh start, press Esc.
If you require to pull a face with the intention that it’s parallel with another face, get help from the SketchUp inference engine. Prior to pull the face, hover the Push/Pull cursor over the other face, and the inference engine will notify you when the two faces are parallel.
As soon as you push/pull to add volume to your model, it is possible to double the size of the extrusion or generate a individual but equivalent extrusion:
• To replicate the extrusion on a diverse face, double-click another face.
• To stack an equivalent extrusion on top of the current one, Ctrl+double-click (Microsoft Windows) or Option+double-click (Mac OS X)

3D Animation Ecole George Mélies Partners with E-on Software Enabling Students to Enhance Their Creativity

E-on software, a leading global developer of software for the creation, animation, rendering, and integration of natural 3D environments in the computer graphics, VFX, architecture, and gaming industries, today announced that Ecole George Mélies has deployed VUE and PlantFactory software to advance the computer graphics (CG) skills of students and accelerate creativity in developing stunning 3D environments. Ecole George Mélies is a leading college in the field of 3D animation and has been ranked as one of Europe's top colleges for film making and animation for the past two decades. Graduates have included many of the world's most well-known digital artists such as Audrey Ferrara at MPC, Nims Bun at ILM, and Vincent Caudeville at Iloura.

"Today, 3D animation schools must offer a wide range of skill sets and competencies to make sure students can meet the high level and variety of creative demands that will be placed upon them across the movie, VFX, and gaming industries. At Ecole Georges Mélies, we are dedicated to leveraging creative and artistic techniques, technology, and software to enhance and expand our creative learning model," said Franck Petitta, directeur général, Ecole George Mélies.

"E-on software's VUE and PlantFactory software will enable us to teach our students new skills in environment and vegetation design, and the software is easier to use and less expensive than other software solutions. VUE and PlantFactory will be used along with additional software such as 3dsMax, Maya, Unreal, Unity 3d, and others," continued Petitta. "Students and professors have already found VUE and PlantFactory to be highly useful tools in their projects and education."

"One of our alumni who recently used VUE for a movie project was honored by several festival awards," commented Patrice David, communications director, Ecole George Mélies. The student, Ersan Musa, said, "Advised by an environmental software artist, I tested VUE. It was so powerful yet easy to use that I decided to use it in my graduation movie, with great success!" Ersan Musa's team, which also included Hélène Guillem and Colin Huard, used VUE mainly for creating the ecosystems along with Maya and Nuke software.

Other projects by this year's students include developing ways to collaborate in creating stunning CG 3D environments in short films and getting students' inputs about the functionalities and benefits of VUE and PlantFactory for business development in the future.
More information on VUE 2016 and PlantFactory 2016 is available at:
