From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia 
An exercise machine is any machine used for physical exercise. These range from simple spring-like devices to computerized electromechanical rides to recirculating-stream swimming pools. Most exercise machines incorporate an ergometer. An ergometer is an apparatus for measuring the work a person exerts while exercising as used in training or cardiac stress tests or other medical tests.
For the purposes of this challenge, you may model any type of exercise equipment or exercise machine that would be used in a workout or training gym.

Challenge Period: Monday, 28 August 2017 - Sunday, 10 September 2017

Carnival game
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A carnival game is a game of chance or skill that can be seen at a traveling carnival, charity fund raiser, amusement arcade and amusement park, or on a state and county fair midway. They are also commonly played on holidays such as Mardi Gras, Saint Patrick's Day, and Oktoberfest.
Carnival games are usually operated on a "pay per play" basis. Prices may range from a small amount, for example 25¢ (cents), to a few dollars per play. Most games offer a small prize to the winner. Prizes may include items like stuffed animals, toys, or posters. Continued play is encouraged as multiple small prizes may traded in for a larger prize. Multiplayer games—the "Watergun" game is one example—may change the size of the prize with the number of players. In a more difficult game, including the "Baseball and Basket" or "Stand the Bottle", a large prize may be awarded to any winner.
For the purposes of this challenge, you are to model a carnival/funfair game including the display of the available prizes. The most important thing is to have fun with this challenge!

SketchUp 3D Challenge #270: Wacky Hot Air Balloons

Challenge Period: Monday, 14 August 2017 - Sunday, 27 August 2017


We've done hot air balloons before so this time we're doing it with a twist. For the purposes of this challenge, you are to model a hot air balloon with humor in mind. Your hot air balloon isn't limited to the traditional shape as long as flight is plausible. Think cartoons, animals, parody, satire, or things you wouldn't expect to see flying. The only requirement is that it stay good, clean fun!

Steamboat

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia 
A steamboat is a boat that is propelled primarily by steam power, typically driving propellers or paddlewheels. Steamboats sometimes use the prefix designation SS, S.S. or S/S (for 'Screw Steamer') or PS (for 'Paddle Steamer'), however these designations are most often used for Steamships.
The term steamboat is used to refer to smaller, insular, steam-powered boats working on lakes and rivers, particularly riverboats. As using steam became more reliable, steam power became applied to larger, ocean-going vessels.
For the purposes of this challenge, you are to model a steamboat designed for lakes and rivers.

READ THIS -- Rule Change: Trimble has made the decision to phase out tags in the 3D Warehouse in favor of hashtags. This change is yet to take effect, however, to get ahead of the change, the SketchUp 3D Challenge will now require the hashtag supplied in the challenge post added to the Description of your model instead of using the soon to be phased-out Tags section in the 3D Warehouse.
- Only models with the given hashtag (including the '#') in the description of their model will count in the challenge. Note that there are no spaces hashtags.
- See this page in the SketchUp User Forums for more information about the switch to hashtags.
