You translate those models into accurate measured drawings that let you build the real thing faster and with fewer mistakes. In this hands-on virtual class, you’ll learn how to navigate the 3D design space confidently and how to use SketchUp’s array of tools. You’ll also learn how to make models quickly and accurately, following four important good practices, or rules for success.
