Getting Started with SketchUp and Layout
What You'll Learn
Whether you are a graphic designer, videographer, hobbyist, inventor, builder, or architect, Sketchup and Layout are powerful, affordable 3D modeling tools that push projects forward.
This workshop will teach you how to use the software for building a model of your house, designing furniture, 3D modeling your next great invention, rendering photorealistic 3D images, creating custom 3D logos and icons, staging your next film shoot, and with Layout, turning your model into a blueprint.
You'll leave with a fundamental understanding of Sketchup and Layout, including tips and tricks on how to quickly present, print, or build your 3D ideas to move your projects forward. We will also touch on advanced methods to build more complex models for those bigger projects.
This workshop will cover:
- Sketchup and Layout workflow
- Components and group nesting
- Layer management
- Adding textures
- Keyboard shortcuts and tricks
- Linking models and components
- Printing blueprints
- Forming complex shapes
- Creating walk-throughs and presentations
- Exporting 2D and 3D files
Note: Please download free copies of Sketchup and Layout prior to class to familiarize yourself with the programs.
