SketchUp All-In-One


SketchUp All-in-One allows the student to visualize spaces 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, explore and iterate more times in the time design time available to you. On day 2 and 3 the course goes beyond the basics to explore the complex features and tools that design professionals use. You'll get numerous step-by-step tutorials for solving common (and not so common) design problems, with detailed colour graphics to guide your way, and discussions that explain additional ways to complete a task.
