Sketchup Class - Intermediate
This SketchUp training course is intended for students with basic SketchUp experience who want to investigate intermediate topics. This couse is suitable for those using SketchUp Pro and SketchUp Make. These include: working with groups and components to isolate and organize geometry; creating, editing, organizing and combining components; employing enhanced presentation techniques for SketchUp models. Detailed instruction in the use of modeling techniques to improve speed and accuracy is also provided. For all of our SketchUp classes, see our complete list of Sketchup Classes.
In this SketchUp training course you will discover how to quickly and accurate generate, explore, and iterate study models using SketchUp for 3D modeling. Learn to use its pencil and paper paradigm in an app as you master 3D using SketchUp Pro.

Before enrolling in this intermediate Sketchup course you should be familiar with the topics covered in the introductory class. Participants should also be familiar with fundamental geometric terms such as polygon, parallel, perpendicular, axes, arc, and array. You should also understand 3-dimensional drawing terms including: rendering, field of view, and point of view.

The intermediate SketchUp class provides for use of the software while in our classrooms, and you can select either Mac or Windows at the time of enrollment. We recommend that you also have either the Sketchup Pro or SketchUp Make app at the time of the training so that you can continue to learn SketchUp outside of the classroom. If attending an online SketchUp course, you can use either version of the SketchUp app for the class; if needed a link to the app for use during the SketchUp class can be provided.

You will receive a comprehensive course manual for this class developed by the instructors at AGI. AGI instructors have created many of the official training guides and books for Adobe Systems and Microsoft.
