you mean simply circular, or with the double curvature?

Id use the same tool as I used for my velodrome roof, then use the intersect tool to cut a hole in the top and the scale tool to fit it over the stadium. Then its just the follow me tool to do the facade.

Nah, its fine. Quite a few places are like that. ANyway, this terrace would only be open for big games, this is for a club with an old ground which is too big for them with failing attendances, a bit like Wrexham :p

I looked at your old post, you used an extrusion tool plugin right? Where did you get that?

CADartet Sports Hall - end of week 5 updates

VIP chairs


View from Media/TV/Press stand


Telescopic stands chairs overview


Telescopic stands unfolded overview




Telescopic stands folded overview


I´m only using very basic materials to speed up things, but the colors are close to my ideas.
The telescopic stands are animated. They initially included all the metal structure (all the beams and wheels and stuff) but since they would be hidden by curtains, I decided to delete them.

Metal barriers, here is a closer picture. Is this what you mean, the material?

Beautiful <3
I went to the ExCel today for the paralympics and those seats in the third picture are almost identical :L I really want to build a detailed seat like that in sketchup, it is just so difficult to do. Anyway, ill try it soon.

Yeah, I think they were the ones at the excel. Thanks for this, although modelling the complex geomtary of a modern plastic seat like this wont be too easy :p

In 3ds max its simple. I just do a low poly version of the seat and apply a mesh subdivision tool, in my case I used turbosmooth modifier.

If you have any kind of subdivision tool in sketchup you can do the same.

I tried doing a curvy roof based on yours without plugins, didn't take too long and seems to have worked out well Obviously only the top of it is done, but the rest is pretty basic stuff

The roof on my velodrome was probably a smoother curve because the sections are tiny, there it has lots of bigger sections. download it take a look.
Not taking anything away from you, stress's stadium is still really good.

Edit: My detailed seats are really slowing down sketchup :/ Might switch back to semi detailed seats.

it also depends on the structure of the roof, leedsrule's one is a different structural system to mine hence different method of making it in sketchup, each method of making it in sketchup should lend itself to a particular structural system or vice versa. try looking up pictures of stadiums in construction, that should give you the perfect idea of how to build it in what ever 3d modeling software you are using

^ Looks good, I was ngoing to do something like this to go alongside the olympic park but I had no time.

Use both seats and bnches. No idea where the 'best seats in the house' are in baseball but put big comfy chairs there and benches everywhere else.

If you're going for another tier above, maybe use benches in the lower and seats in the upper?
