Google SketchUp 1: Beginner

March 9, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm | $20.00

Google SketchUp is a FREE 3D modeling program fully supported by Google with updates and PRO versions to complement the basic version. Plugins, 3D library, and Google Maps integration are just a few of the impressive features of the program.

SketchUp is a excellent tool to allow users to build 3D models in scale, see how parts interact, embed Google Maps data, and play with lighting and textures.

A must for anyone looking to expand their modeling and building skills. This course will cover basic building techniques, navigation of the software, shortcuts and my own personal “cheats” to be more effective at building models.

Skills Covered:

  • Understanding different program options
  • Basic terms
  • Basic file format setup
  • Fundamental building techniques
  • Colors, texture, & lighting, & some advanced building processes

Students are required to bring a computer, a mouse, and have the program installed BEFORE class.
