Event Details

This is a hands on training course and computer work stations will be provided.

The first section of the course is designed for participants that are new to SketchUp.

In the morning, a walk through of the User Interface and the basic functions and tools will be covered, such as Outliner Tool, Lines and Shapes, Inputting Dimensions, Push/Pulls, Measuring, Guides, Colors and Materials, Move/Rotate/Scale, Panning and Orbiting, Layers, Scenes and Styles. Attendees will learn how to create a SketchUp Model and start to build a custom Component Library specifically geared towards Set Design useful in any future project or drawing. 

In the afternoon, attendees will focus on applying these basic techniques to create more intricate design objects. Additional tools such as Components, Groups, 3D Warehouse, and Explosion Tool will be covered, as well as Importing .DWG to SketchUP (from AutoCAD, Vectorworks, etc.), Pre-visualization (Advanced Camera Tools & Techniques), and Organization & Workflow.
