This webinar series is a live online training. I will share my screen while attendees following along side/side.

Webinar Tips:

  • Download the Zoom app.
  • Use headphones. The audio quality is much better for everyone else.
  • Use a second screen/display. You can sign into mulitple times. Many users have success streaming my screen onto a tablet or second monitor to keep your primary display available to model in SketchUp. This prevents having to switch back and forth from the screenshare.
  • Stuck? You can share your screen and I can also request mouse control to assist.
  • Recording Afterwards. Should you need to leave the session early, I will provide a screen recording link to the session.

Session 1 starts with the basics and builds up to Session 4 where you’ll learn how to create presentations and photorealistic renderings. The webinar setting allows you to follow along with the presentation on screen. A recorded stream of the session will be available in the event you need to go back and freshen up on a technique for one month. Working files are also included. Individual sessions are available as well.
