Aim of the session will be to have a domestic room modelled such as a bedroom space.
Components such as furniture assets could be shared in advance to attendees so that everyone will have a consistent model.
Recommend most up to date version of SketchUp Pro (2021) for this course which can be delivered in three parts – beginner, intermediate & advanced.
SketchUp pro can be downloaded as a trial for 30 days and give the end user an indication of the programs potential. It includes Layout which is a powerful presentation tool that can be used in conjunction with the main Sketchup program, I would suggest this be part of lesson 3 – Advanced.
Software must be installed prior to start of the course.
Compatibility of software & computer hardware can be obtained from the SketchUp site, just to ensure that whoever can attend has a computer capable of powering the program.
Scroll wheel mouse
This might seem obvious but an essential piece of kit and users without a scroll wheel mouse will find it very slow and tedious to navigate the program.
