I spent the weekend working on modeling some ideas for an interactive lighting sculpture and in the process, realized the upper limits of my computer with this 4,000+ led array.  

I like how easy Sketchup is, though compared to Rhino (which I kind of started understanding) it seems like I'm drawing cartoons as opposed to realistic, neatly rendered models.  

At some point soon I'll make the switch over to Rhino. For now though, I don't have the time to invest in the steeper learning curve.
