Big landscaping: Landscape architecture at scale
As we all know, landscape architectural modeling can be challenging due to physically large sites, complex existing terrains and even more complex proposed grading – not to mention the need to share files and make revisions throughout the process.

This workshop will present a professional workflow for addressing three main challenges to as they relate to landscape architecture and site design*: 
1. Simplifying and working with existing and proposed terrains; 
2. Distributing and arranging large amounts of components - over terrain of course!; and
3. Organizing large models to work collaboratively while allowing for real-time revisions. 

Come join us as we simplify (or perhaps demystify) the complexities of working with Landscapes at scale.

*Note that 'working with vegetation components' portion of the workshop has been moved to its own in-depth workshop on Friday at 9:30am called "Going Green: A Landscape Modeling to Visualization Workflow."

The complete site design modeling process (includes drones!)
Join Daniel Tal for a hands-on workshop for site modeling and terrain. This session will feature a series of quick tutorials that explore the various aspects of site modeling. Daniel will cover working with existing information, including high detail aerials and CAD files, then review the process of conceptual grading and integrating photogrammetry. In a nutshell, Daniel will give you all the information you need to start your own site design work in SketchUp!
Bonus! The session will include a 9-page getting started guide, access to free online tutorials, and other resources.

SketchUp 201: Revisiting SketchUp fundamentals (Mac OS)
This workshop is built for those who want to re-approach the fundamentals of SketchUp as informed beginners. Taught by Josh Reilly from SketchUp, this course will revisit the keys to organized and efficient 3D modeling, covering many of the same topics at a slightly accelerated pace compared to The Complete Intro workshop. The fundamentals of SketchUp also include setting your models up for documentation and presentation, so you can expect a brief introduction to LayOut as well. Not sure which class to take? We’ll help you figure it out in Palm Springs!

The secret powers of Scenes in SketchUp
This course is designed to help students develop a deep understanding of the workflows and efficiencies that are possible by mastering Scenes. On the surface, Scenes are deceptively simple. When used at an advanced level, Scenes can be an incredibly powerful tool for creating compelling presentations and speeding up your work. In this course, we’ll dive into the way SketchUp interpolates between Scenes when calculating transition paths so that you can more accurately predict animation results, learn to manage the relationship between Styles and Scenes (which will detour into a deep dive on SketchUp’s Styles), learn to animate Section Planes, and learn how to create specialty “working” Scenes that can help you get more done, faster.

Add Location: The what, why, and how of 'where' in SketchUp
When Google's contract to provide geographic data expired, Trimble added a new system to supply aerial photographs and terrain data. In some parts of the world it looks just fine, in other areas the quality leaves something to be desired. This workshop will suggest other sources for high quality aerial images, and provide hands-on training on how to import, position, and scale them accurately.

Mixed-up media: Hybrid drawing workshop
Limited Capacity filling up

In this (very) hands-on workshop, participants will draw along with Jim Leggitt, who will be projecting live images of his drawing surface using an overhead HD camera. Participants will work through several quick drawing exercises giving them first-hand experience with various hybrid methods such as "overlay and trace,” “composite scan drawing,” and "print composite drawing.” Each exercise will be based on SketchUp models. Participants do not need to bring anything to this session; graphic supplies will be provided. No need to bring computers to this session!

NOTE: Due to the nature of this class, seating is limited to ONLY 40 people. Attendees will be seated on a first-come first-served basis.

Playing well with others: SketchUp and CAD
Let’s face it: you live in a world where CAD files must import into SketchUp. And sometimes the result isn’t exactly pretty. Working with other people’s CAD files is a reality. In this class, we’ll work on common practices for cleaning up CAD imports, methods for creating SketchUp geometry from CAD linework, and -- perhaps, most important -- how to prep a CAD file before you bring it into SketchUp. And yes, we’ll also cover exporting your SketchUp model in formats such as .DWG, .DXF, .IFC and even .JPG, .PNG, and .PDF. (Yeah, those matter too!)

Big CAD in SketchUp
What does it look like to deploy SketchUp on a $300 million project? What about switching a $300 million business from traditional CAD to SketchUp? Duane Addy creates customized, efficient, and scalable workflows that turn your favorite 3D modeler into an enterprise-charged design platform that churns out better work faster, and at a lower cost. If you work with people who assume that SketchUp can’t do the heavy lifting of ‘Big CAD,’ this session will prove that that SketchUp isn’t just capable of large-scale projects, it shines when pushed to scale.

New trends in hybrid visualization
There is an immense variety of communication options available to designers, ranging from traditional hand drawings (pencil on paper) to amazing hybrid renderings entirely created on an iPad with an Apple pencil. A common thread of these workflows is the integrated use of SketchUp modeling. In this session, Jim Leggitt will review different visualization methods, comment on the strengths and appropriate use cases for each, and step-through the workflow for using SketchUp linework as a complement for hybrid visualizations.

Modeling infrastructure in SketchUp
We all know that SketchUp is a fantastic solution for architectural design, but did you know that it does an incredible job of modeling and planning infrastructure projects? Join our resident SketchUp Yoda -- a.k.a. Daniel Tal -- as he walks through some of his favorite engineering projects: bridges, roadways, and power plants. You’ll leave with an understanding of the role SketchUp plays in large infrastructure projects. As always with Daniel’s work, you’ll also get a peek at a brilliant mix of extension-based workflows you can bring to your own work.
