Starting a Model Right
This beginner SketchUp Pro course is created to have you learning proper techniques from the get-go! Follow along as we build a simple interior living room space and develop the model until a document. Learn how to start from scratch, create groups and components properly, add materials and textures, include details like trim and baseboards. You will also learn how to organize and work with tags, scenes, styles, shadows, and export your rendering as an image or animation in SketchUp. Lastly, we send the file to LayOut, SketchUp’s paper space tool, where we will add pages, add a title block, labels, and dimensions to our design intent document.
