Quad modeling? Quad meshes? Whether you’ve heard of this terminology or not, you may be interested in this session. A quad mesh is more regular and predictable than triangles, and it provides meshes with directions of flow. This means that tools can follow an edge and you can select loops or rings in a predictable order. The resulting mesh is also easier to map for texturing and can be more effectively smoothed. This makes quad modeling ideal for creating organic or flowing shapes.
This class will cover the basic concepts of quad modeling and help you realize the advantages of quad modeling in SketchUp. We will cover how to use extensions to generate quad meshes that can be adjusted to create smooth, flowing models. See the advantage of modeling with fewer faces to achieve the smoothest geometry possible!

I've been part of the SketchUp team for almost 15 years, it's been a great ride. Happy to talk about SketchUp or my personal YouTube journey as GeeksWoodShop, where I create tackle woodworking, furniture, cosplay, and of course, SketchUp projects.
