Course overview

Always wanted to learn the tools which allow you to easily draw out your design ideas? Wondering what software could help you communicate your design intentions directly to a contractor? Join this SketchUp Bootcamp! Over the course of 3 days, we’ll deep dive into 3D modelling, applying materials and extracting and editing 2D drawings - all with the same software.

Curriculum will cover:

Day 1 – VISUALISE YOUR PROJECT WITH SKETCHUP 
In day 1 you will get introduced to Sketch Up, a free and easy-to-use software, to help you visualize your design ideas. You will start building a space from 2D in which you will develop a kitchen project as a theoretical exercise.

  • Creating 3D objects with editing tools
  • Outcome: 3D Modeling starting from a simple floorplan

 

Day 2 – BRING YOUR VISUALIZATION TO LIFE
In day 2, you will visualize your design by learning further drawing tools and get to know how to make a 3D model just look like real. This will help you communicate your design visions to your family and later to your contractor.

  • Advanced editing tools
  • Applying colours and library materials
  • Moving, copying, and grouping
  • Outcome: Modeling a piece of furniture from a plan

 

Day 3 – GET READY TO KICK OFF CONSTRUCTION 
Last but not least we will teach you the important last step in how to create a comprehensive documentation of your design in order to kick off a renovation hand in hand with your chosen contractor!
