Google SketchUp 8 Essential Training

Lynda – Google SketchUp 8 Essential Training
In this course, author George Maestri explains how to model and render 3D objects and scenes using Google SketchUp 8. The course covers the fundamentals of the application, from navigating the user interface, manipulating objects, and building basic shapes to importing objects from Google Earth, animating a scene, and modeling organic terrain using the Sandbox tools. The course also explores SketchUp Pro features, which are available as an upgrade. These include tools for creating dynamic components and adding interactivity, as well as sophisticated importing and exporting options for working with outside applications.

 Topics include:

  • Setting preferences
  • Building scenes
  • Pushing and pulling faces into 3D
  • Creating 3D text
  • Measuring and labeling models
  • Creating, editing, and adjusting materials
  • Projecting maps onto curved objects
  • Modeling with floor plans
  • Rendering a scene
  • Geolocating models with Google Maps
  • Modeling in Photo Match
  • Hiding objects dynamically
  • Creating solids
  • Exporting objects for rendering
