Pedal Drier – 3D Graphics


Year 1 – Introduction to computer Graphics (IGRAP)

Project Brief

You have been approached to construct a 3D model of this pedal drier (drawn by Lephillou as inspired by W. Heath-Robinson).

Use Google SketchUp to draw a scale model of the invention (N.B. it does not have to be identical to the cartoon but it does need to clearly illustrate how the device works; you do not need to draw the man or the background, except a wall and floor).

The deliverable is the final image in SketchUp which will be judged in terms of its:


  • professional and technical merit
  • accuracy / realism
