Ever since 2004, Sketch-up is one of the fastest and most advanced 3D modeling softwares available. It’s quick to model anything from a cup of tea to complete interiors and buildings. Therefore it is widely used by industrial designers, architects, urban planners and game- developers. The 3D course will initially start with an intro of the use and the easiness of the program. Slowly together with the tutors you will dive in the world of Sketch-up, starting with 2D drawing and transforming it to 3D models. In the course the tutors will give a large number of examples ranging from window frames to staircases but is of course not limited to (interior) architecture only. After the 3 day course, Sketch-up will be part of your design process.
