Wish you knew SketchUp? Learn from an expert at the next (Virtual) BSA SketchUp Bootcamp! All user levels are welcome, from new users to pros; best practices for SketchUp drawing are emphasized each session, whether you're starting your first SketchUp model or expanding your SketchUp proficiency.

This month I'll show you how the power of the Scenes palette can make life easier - and even more exciting - from saving views to help you model more efficiently, to exporting walk-through animations or creating construction documents with LayOut!

Do you want to be able to quickly show your client different design options? I’ll show you how to combine Scenes with Layers/Tags to save views of different alternatives.

Learn how to create an animated sun/shadow study using the Shadow tool, and even how to animate Section Planes! Plus I’ll show you how to use the Position Camera tool along with Walk and Look Around to set up Scenes for exporting a smooth animation.

And I’ll show you how to take your SketchUp model into LayOut to create construction documents that will print to-scale, with dimensions, notes, and title blocks.

As always, bring your questions and I’ll help you streamline your process and become more adept with SketchUp.

Feel free to bring your fully-charged laptop (and mouse) with SketchUp version 2017 (or later) installed, or just come to watch.
