 SketchUp Essentials¬†
SketchUp is a powerful tool for communicating 3D design concepts in professional workflows.
This course is intended for students with basic experience in SketchUp who want to investigate intermediate topics, including working with groups and components to isolate and organize geometry, creating, editing, organizing and combining components, and employing enhanced
presentation techniques for SketchUp models.

 Use Groups and Components to Isolate Geometry
Review and evaluate the difference between a group and a component
Create a component
Demonstrate component behavior and how to edit a component

 Use the Outliner for Efficient Modeling
Edit and organize components from the Outliner
Demonstrate the effect of scaling on similar components

 Review and Evaluate Organizational Techniques for Components
Review in model collections
Review collections within SketchUp
Add a model to a component collection outside of SketchUp

 Combine Components to Create a Model
Add location satellite imagery
Insert a component from a file
Swap (reload) components in a model

 Create an Animation
Apply shadow studies
Create scenes

 Identify Modeling Techniques to Enhance Speed and Accuracy¬†
Interconnect forms using the pencil (line) tool
Draw parallel edges
Demonstrate the Follow me tool
Intersect complex forms
Draw on a sloping surface
