Sharpen Your SketchUp Skills – An Intermediate SketchUp Course
This two-session hands-on class covers three ways to enhance your SketchUp skills:
- One, creating accurate details and parts, such as stopped chamfers with lambs-ear ends, egg-and-dart molding, cabriole legs, curved and tapered legs, ball-and-claw feet, and ogee bracket feet. You’ll also learn how to use one pin to create a full dovetail joint in a jiffy.
- Two, how to install and use plugins—separate apps that make SketchUp more powerful. Plugins let you easily generate a cutlist; create shapes that the basic tools can’t handle; find and fix problems in a model; round over corners; create complex joinery; bend parts such as back splats for a chair; and much more *This class covers the 12 best plugins for woodworking.
- Three, how to use digital images to add realistic woodgrain textures to the surfaces of a model; how to import an image of a part such as a cabriole leg, scale it, and trace over it; and how to import a photo of a finished piece and trace over it to create a model.
Each session will last 3 hours. At the end, you’ll acquire the skills and confidence you need to tackle any SketchUp design challenge.
