SketchUp Session for Beginners - Tuesday

SketchUp Session for Beginners - Tuesday


DATE: Tuesday 23rd October and Tuesday 30th October (this session runs over two days, with some home work in between)
TIME: 10am to 4pm

You don’t need to be good at drawing in order to show your clients a clear representation of your awesome design. A few tips and tricks in SketchUp goes a long way.

SketchUp is a free computer software that allows you to communicate in 2D or 3D drawings. Quickly turn your floorplans into three-dimensional rooms, drop in some cool furniture or create a custom kitchen. SketchUp is a valuable tool to ‘wow’ your clients and allow them to see your design vision. When they can see it, they will understand it and want it!

Learn how to navigate in a 3D platform, create walls, insert doors and windows in this beginner session. Examples of how SketchUp is used for interior design are shown and the basics explained. A few useful tips are demonstrated in this session, with the small group of six allowing for each student having hands-on time with Lauren. Ideal for those who have never used a 3D or drafting software before, this is bringing it back to basics.   

What you learn:

  • How to navigate in the 3D space, use the mouse, zoom and orbit.

  • How to turn a bunch of lines into 3D walls, insert doors, windows and furniture.

  • We complete an exercise to create a hotel room complete with furnishings and a bathroom.

  • Import the actual artworks and rugs you have specifed into your sketchup model.

  • Find the furniture, tapware, lighting etc to insert into your model, and learn how to adapt them to suit your design

  • Apply materials to your model and import your own custom materials.

    What’s Included:

  • A live SketchUp file of a kitchen, with useful components such as furniture, decor and hardware that designers love to use for a professional model.

  • One months access to the Sessions Facebook Group where you can ‘ask me anything’

  • A delicious pizza lunch (please advise of dietary requirements), wine (let’s get creative!), and complementary all day tea and refreshments from our apartment kitchen.
