Next-Level SketchUp: Advanced Skills

In this special Advanced session of the monthly BSA SketchUp Bootcamp, you’ll learn how to take your SketchUp skills to the next level. All users are welcome; for novices, this is a great way to stretch your SketchUp mind, and as always we’ll cover best practices for efficient modeling.

Create custom Materials that match your specifications. Learn how to quickly add Terrain to ground your buildings, and how to use the Add Location tool to import satellite imagery. Add animated Shadow studies and Sections to your bag of tricks. Fix slow models by using Layers and dummy objects. We’ll also cover MatchPhoto, a great tool for modeling right inside a photograph, both interior and exterior.

Bring your questions and a fully-charged laptop (and mouse) with SketchUp 8+ installed, or just come to watch.

For those who qualify, 2 LUs are available.
