Introduction to SketchUp

SketchUp is a powerful 3D software application used for architecture, interior design, game design, and basic 3D modelling. In this hands-on workshop, students will learn to create 3D illustrations and models with SketchUp Pro. Topics include drawing tools, modify commands, component libraries, layering systems, modelling solids, surface treatments, and working with prefab objects.

For online classes, students are responsible for purchasing their own software for class. Trial versions of the software are sometimes available on the company website, but at this time there are no discounts available for Continuing Studies students.

This course is taught using SketchUp for Windows. Most of SketchUp’s functionality is the same across Windows and Mac operating systems, however there are some differences between the interfaces and shortcut commands, and what you see in the tutorials may not match what you are seeing on your own machine. Students using a Mac can install Boot Camp, which is a utility that comes with your Mac, that will allow you to switch between macOS and Windows.

This course is offered in partnership with OCAD University to offer a wide range of courses for enhancing your career expertise in web, design, photography, analytics, and technology.
