Overview

SketchUp is an all-purpose 3D modeling tool. The program is primarily developed around architectural design, but it can be used to model just about anything. It is an easy way to quickly communicate your design ideas to clients or prospective employers. Not only can you create great still images, SketchUp also is able to produce walk-thru videos!

This book has been written with the assumption that you have no prior experience using Google SketchUp. With this book, you will be able to describe and apply many of the fundamental principles needed to develop compelling SketchUp models.

The book uses a series of tutorial style exercises in order to introduce you to SketchUp. Several pieces of furniture are molded throughout the book. The process is broken down into the fundamental concepts of 2D line work, 3D extraction, applying materials, and printing.

Although the book is primarily written with a classroom setting in mind, most individuals will be able to work through it on their own and benefit from the tips and tricks presented.
