How will I learn on the SketchUp Pro Access Course?
Our SketchUp Pro Access course is hands-on and practical training, providing you with more hours of trained supervision than most courses. That’s what makes it the best value course available.
Your trainer will teach you the necessary theory and demonstrate all the techniques in a step-by-step way. You then practice the techniques taught on a computer running SketchUp Pro.
The 16 hours worth of training is split over just two days, meaning less time out of the office for you. There will still be plenty of time to ask questions, and you can take away all the files you create at the end of the course too!
Creating 3D drawings quickly and easily is a valuable skill in any design practice and can significantly enhance your professional communication and presentation whilst using SketchUp Pro. SketchUp Make is a free 3D modelling software, available as a free download, making it accessible for all audiences when looking into this course specifically as everything learnt is native to the software.
From 2D plans and elevations to 3D rendered objects and interiors. You’ll soon be able to tap into its potential as we introduce you to both its 2D drawing and 3D manipulation tools, materials & textures, organisational concepts and optimisation techniques to hone your workflow.
Our Introduction to SketchUp Course provides you with an understanding of the fundamental principles of 3D design using Trimble’s SketchUp Pro.
