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.

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!)

Exploring interior design choices in SketchUp
One of SketchUp’s not-so-secret powers is helping designers (and clients) understand the choices at hand. Across furniture, finishings, and even basic room layouts, interior designers can use SketchUp to understand and evaluate important decisions and build rapport with clients. Specifically, this session will address the use of scenes, layers, and texture editing for comparing and communicating choices for layouts, furniture specifications, and finishings.
