Master SketchUp in a Weekend, with David Heim

sketch up

This two-day intensive class covers both basic and advanced techniques for this powerful, versatile 3D design program. With SketchUp, you “build” furniture in the computer piece by piece. So, when it’s time to build in the shop, you can work faster and smarter, with fewer costly mistakes. The Saturday session gives you hands-on experience with the basics: How the SketchUp tools work and good practices to follow to work quickly and accurately. The Sunday class covers techniques and tools for creating period details like cabriole legs and turned, reeded legs. You’ll also learn how to create measured drawings, full-size templates, and a cutlist.

Bring a laptop computer (Mac or Windows) loaded with the free version of SketchUp. To get it, go to sketchup.com/download/all and download the version called SketchUp Make 2017.  (You’ll have to set up an account first, but that’s free and easy.) Important: Please do NOT get a  cloud-based version called SketchUp Free; it’s not suitable for this class.

Tuition $365.00 materials are included
