The SketchUp Level 1 - Essentials course is a 3-day class provides an overview of all of the core SketchUp skills needed for general modeling, layout, and architecture.
Topics covered in the course include:
This is for individuals who need to get a complete overview of SketchUp's essential skills. This course is intended for participants with little or no 3-dimensional drawing or SketchUp experience, but who want to start to create 3-dimensional models using SketchUp.
We strongly encourage that you have spent time looking at the SketchUp prior to class either by either downloading the free trial or by seeing it used in a work setting. No formal 3D modeling background is required.
All of our SketchUp courses are taught on the Windows platform. However, because SketchUp on the Mac is very similar to the PC implementation, we welcome Mac users. Mac users have been able to take our SketchUp training without issues. Note: we recommend that individuals taking our class from their home or office connect to the "student" computer using a PC. A Mac can be used to connect to the "meeting" component of the class.
