Serious about learning SketchUp?
We’ve got SketchUp tutorials for professionals
How much time can you afford to waste?
Recently, a Residential Architect named Tom told me an all too familiar story about trying to teach himself SketchUp:
“I kept hearing good things about SketchUp. Architects like me clearly love using it, so one day I finally decided it was time to give it a try.
Going into things, my goal was to be able to design homes in SketchUp and then create construction documents with LayOut.”
“Everybody told me SketchUp was easy to learn, so I downloaded it, and immediately tried to model my own house.
And I was doing pretty well until I hit a snag trying to model the roof.
After struggling in SketchUp for a bit, I searched the internet for some help, and found a video tutorial.
I was able to follow the steps in the tutorial and get something close enough to what I wanted, so I moved on, and continued to model my house.
But progress got slower and slower.
The closer I got to completing the model, the more often I got stuck and had to search the internet for how to get unstuck.
Eventually though, I got to a point where my SketchUp model was pretty much done. And I thought, ‘Not too bad for my first time with SketchUp.’
BUT the first time I used it on the job, it was a very different story.
I was on a deadline, everything in the model needed to be right, and when design changes came up, I needed to be able to make them in SketchUp.
I was in way over my head.”
We helped Tom get the skills he needed
