Sketch-up is a 3D modeling application used to create, share and present 3D models and visualizations. This course starts with fundamentals and provides a thorough grounding in 3D modeling principles for starters.

This Course on SketchUp covers navigating the interface, manipulating objects, drawing, organizing drawing elements, and working with materials and textures on both Windows and Mac computers. The participants will learn how to apply simple styles and animation to make your 3D projects more polished and presentable.

The course is designed to provide participants with hands-on and practical learning demonstrating techniques step-by-step, learn application of drawing and design tools in interior design, architecture, landscaping and many more

Course Objectives

Sketch Up training at Quadraplus will enable the participants to

  • Get acquainted with Sketch up user interface and customize it.
  • Create 2D and 3D geometry with use of various Drawing Tools, inference reference points, the Select Tool, and the Follow Me Tool etc.,
  • Visualize  models in 3D space using the Orbit, Pan, and Zoom tools.
  • Understand techniques to avoid common pitfalls for new SketchUp users.
  • Modify Objects using various options and functions like move and copy, rotate, offset, scale etc.,
  • Annotate objects , create guidelines for reference , adding text in sketch up models.
  • Work with groups, components, layers to organize a sketch up model and control the visibility of items.
  • Apply materials, edit existing materials, map textures on the models.
  • Work with camera tool and section tool to see cross sectional perspectives.
  • Develop a model that includes interior and exterior spaces
  • Create custom furniture and fixture components, styles, and walk-throughs
  • Organize a heavier model using scenes and layers
  • Understand how to create compelling sketches, renderings and construction documents from a finished SketchUp model.
  • Synchronize sketch up model with other modeling tools.

Interior Designer
I came to Quadra Plus in search of training on architecture programs such as Autocad, Revit, 3DsMax and SketchUp, and this has been the best decision made for my education. Just over 8 weeks I have now completed Autocad 2D, Revit, 3Ds Max V-Ray rendering and Sketchup! Definitely recommend coming here for any training!
