Shower Them With SketchUp!

It’s time to spring into SketchUp! Learn from an expert at the next 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.

Breathe some life into your drawing sets with color-rendered plans and sections! This month you’ll learn how to build quick walls using the Rectangle and Push/Pull tools, then we’ll use the Section and Paint Bucket tools to create beautiful, rendered plans and sections with textures and building materials, and even add depth with the Fog tool, right from your SketchUp model!

Plus you’ll learn how to easily save and show these views of your model using the Scenes palette. Create a slick presentation or save different views for a more efficient modeling workflow, and learn to switch perspectives with one click!

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

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