SketchUp Level 2 - Beyond the Basics Course Outline
This 2-day class provides an overview of all of the some more advanced skills in SketchUp such as Layout and Scrapbooks. An overview of time-saving plugins is covered. In addition, photorealistic rendering is reviewed using Podium.
Who Should Attend
This is for individuals who are functional in the basics of SketchUp and are ready to take their skills to the next level.
All of our SketchUp courses are taught on the Windows platform. However, because SketchUp on the Mac is very similar to the PC implementation, we welcome Mac users. Mac users have been able to take our SketchUp training without issues. Note: we recommend that individuals taking our class from their home or office connect to the "student" computer using a PC. A Mac can be used to connect to the "meeting" component of the class. To see the minor differences between SketchUp on the PC and Mac, please review this video prior to your training:
Mac SketchUp vs. Windows SketchUp
We strongly encourage that individuals take the SketchUp Level 1 Essentials class or have similar product experience before taking this class. If you have never used SketchUp, this class is not for you.
