SketchUp Essentials

Visualising in three dimensions is critical to the success of the design of architectural spaces. The interplay of light, colour, space, and form make exciting spaces function successfully. Traditional methods for exploring these issues are very labour intensive. Use of computer software has enabled quicker (and sometimes more accurate) study models to be generated, explored, and iterated more times in the design time available. This 1 day SketchUp training course provides SketchUp users, without prior experience, with a grounding in the use of the software.
