Bring Your Own SketchUp Project
The concept is simple. In this day workshop, attendees will bring their own project to work on and get advanced tips and tricks throughout the workshop. Class size is limited to assure all attendees receive guidance and direction. Plugins and Extensions will also be covered to streamline your workflow.

Prior to class, attendees are to email Dan the file or project he/she would like to work on. Dan will then setup an outline for the best approach/workflow. Dan will also provide examples or referenced workflows to best fit your needs. The class is intended to be informal and more of open studio setting where attendees can learn from each other and ask more technical questions.

Students should bring their own laptop, power cord, and mouse.

Students that purchase a class will receive:

Daniel is very patient and his knowledge of sketch up is amazing, from every bug in the program and the ways to overcome them to all the amazing things it can do.
I highly recommend taking his class, the time goes by so fast, you don’t even realize you have been studying for hours.
Cannot say enough good things about this experience.

Dan is incredibly patient, knowledgeable, and a great teacher. There is a tremendous amount to learn and Dan did a great job trying to impart that on us. Now it will be our turn to build muscle memory and improve our work flow with SketchUp.

This was the best program instruction I have been a part of. The pace was perfect and so well explained I never needed to asks questions. It started from the bottom up. I have and will continue to recommend this class to others in my industry.

Daniel Brown  has been a pleasure to work with from day one. The level of service Dan provides was evident even before I to signed up for his class, when he took the time to review my work and help me determine which training would be right for me. In the training, Daniel’s mastery of the subject matter was clear and he did a great job of keeping the training on track, while answering all participants questions throughout the day. He has even made himself available to answer follow up questions in days and weeks since taking the class. I highly recommend Daniel. I will definitely be reaching out to him again for my future training needs.

The class was fun, enjoyable, relaxed and interesting. Dan Brown is an excellent instructor and is a true master of the material.
I only wish we could stretch the course out over a week so we could practice more and work on a sample project.

The Plugins and render tools were extremely helpful as well as the tips Dan gave on how to build more efficiently. Dan is a great teacher and is very patient. He does not continue to the next step unless the whole group is caught up.Dan was available for any questions via email or phone and responds very quickly. Overall I really enjoyed my training and would recommend to my fellow architect friends!

Dan is a fantastic instructor. The class is a great beginner course & intro to the basics of SketchUp. The pace of the course was great, and gave me the confidence to navigate and use SketchUp for basic design purposes.
