SketchUp Visualisations - 14th September

SketchUp Visualisations - 14th September


SketchUp Visualisations for PC | How to bring your sketchup model to life! 

So you’ve spent hours and hours creating a detailed sketchup model of your clients project. It looks great, but you think it could be better and a lot more realistic. That’s where a rendering program comes in. Rendering is a separate software to sketchup alone but they are still connected. Let your hard work in sketchup really shine and impress your clients. When clients can clearly visualise the design and even managing the project is a lot easier when they know what the end result will look like. 


No need to outsource this anymore and waste time going back and forth, it’s surprisingly easy and you’ll have fun doing this yourself. Join us to learn how. 


There are three parts to this session; 

1. Setting up a simple model that is provided with materials that will render well.

2. Learning how to use the rendering program.

3. Adding the finishing touches in photoshop.

What’s included: 

  • You will learn how to enhance the materials in the model and create realistic bumpy, reflective or ceramic textures. 

  • How to adjust lighting to create some gorgeous natural lighting effects. 

  • How to export animations 

  • How to use photoshop to enhance lighting effects and add realism. 

  • You receive a file full of useful materials and components that render beautifully that you can use in your own projects. 

  • 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. 


This session is perfect for: 

  • Interior designers that have a good knowledge of sketchup but want to create realistic views. 

  • Those that have already attended our ‘sketchup intermediate’ session (although not a requirement) 

  • Busy designers that want hands-on tutorials and enjoy learning with a small group of other like-minded designers. 

  • You should already know how to use sketchup and navigate in the 3D interface, how to group, scale, rotate, copy and move. You’ll already be able to build rooms, insert windows and doors and use the 3D Warehouse. You’ll know how to import custom materials and adapt components from the 3D Warehouse. 

  • You’ll have a basic knowledge of photoshop, know how to open a file, use the move and transform tool and save the image.
