SketchUp Level 2 - Beyond the Basics with SketchUp and Layout 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.

Hardware Platform
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 <a hef="https://www.onlc.com/outline.asp?ccode=xskup1" target="blank">SketchUp Level 1 Essentials class</a> or have similar product experience before taking this class. If you have never used SketchUp, this class is not appropriate for you.
