[Updated] Guys, to keep it fair for both our members and those who buy bundles we’ve changed our sign up terms ever so slightly. We’re now introducing a minimum 3 month sign up period, still at the rate of £5.99 per month charged at the amount of 3 months initially. After the 3rd month you’ll then be charged for every 3 months there after, with no contract allowing you to cancel at anytime in that 3 month period. There are no changes to our annual membership or bundles.


As part of our project set up series we show you how to arrange your sheets, element keys and tips for good drawing practice for both planning & construction purposes. This series will be going live very soon, as a bundle and to our members!

There are a lot of factors that make for a good quality visualisation, but if we had to pick one that made the most impact it would be good quality textures. What do you think?

If anyone ever tells you that you’re not good enough, don’t listen, hang in there and keep working hard at being the best you can be! I was asked to leave university at the end of second year because the tutors said I didn’t have what it takes to be an architect - I ignored them worked hard over the summer between 2nd & 3rd year and went on to get a first class with honours. What do they know!!?? Today I’m lead architect on the above project and living the dream @studiorba If you guys are ever struggling, need any help or advice remember to email us at info @studiorba we’ll point you in the right direction.

Our latest tutorial is now live! How to accurately model a topo surface in SketchUp. We’re aware there are quicker ways to achieve this, but you must always be sure that your site information is correct to prevent future headaches on a project, so although this technique isn’t quick it’s the most accurate way of utilising a topographic survey. It’s not always about hacks with us 😇 find the lesson in the SketchUp category of our tutorials area.
