Scott Hurst offers a useful sketchup tutorial course where he briefly teaches setting up shading and light for views through Sketchup Pro. The course is known as “Sketchup 2014 Conceptual and Schematic Design”. One can learn how to use various tools in sketchup for generating, revising and exporting both the indoor and outdoor of a house modeled in 3d.
Initially be trained with applying toolbars, shortcuts, objects, groups, components, and guides inside sketchup.
Then, gather knowledge on producing a reference image and utilize it as a guide to generate walls, mullions, beams and floors to the model. Afterward, know how to insert topography, furniture, plumbing, millwork, and pre-defined assets to detail your model efficiently.
At the end, learn organizing your model for exporting from sketchup to other popular 3d program like 3ds max or obtain the 2d views. Be familiar with other advanced features of sketchup which range from using follow me tool, the array and rotate tools, and other innovative sandbox tool features.
After completing the course, you will be able to produce a model out of a reference image as well as manage that model to generate professional looking views instantly, and apply some of the sophisticated tools of SketchUp to make complicated shapes and objects.
