The SketchUp for Architecture course offers architects the information they need to get the most from SketchUp, the intuitive CAD alternative. This installment kicks off with an overview of the SketchUp interface and workflow, and dives into a typical residential building project, taking students from creating the site plan to building the walls, floor, and roof of a house. We'll show you how to add detail elements like stairs and ceiling trim, and make models more realistic with materials. Plus, learn how to take advantage of the organizational features that make drafting in SketchUp so much easier—but that most designers never think to use.
