Get a fresh start on SketchUp! Come visit us (virtually!) during an online session of the next BSA SketchUp Bootcamp and learn from an expert. 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.
Learn the best way to navigate around your model! I’ll give you my tips for fast Zooming and Orbiting, and show you how to work with Scenes to save views.
Make it look good! Spruce up your models by adding a sky image in the background, or experiment with sketchy lines and textures in the Styles palette, and learn how to fine-tune the lighting with the Shadows palette - even with interior models!
And in our LayOut Tip of the Month you’ll learn how to add subtle shadows and fog to show depth in your plans and elevations in LayOut.
As always I’ll show you how to start with SketchUp’s basic toolset and work your way up to more complex geometry. Bring your questions and I’ll help you streamline your process so you can master SketchUp!
Feel free to bring your fully-charged laptop (and mouse) with SketchUp version 2017 (or later) installed, or just come to watch.
