  • Lehanie Van Buuren South Africa This is a very interesting course, very well explained, I think I'm almost ready to be an Engineer. 2015-01-20 14:01:14
  • Kevin Sewe Kenya I like the course and am looking forward to learning more from the online Alison courses. 2015-01-17 13:01:03
  • Jaco Vermeulen South Africa Excellent course to get you started on sketchup! 2015-01-14 09:01:33
  • Sharifah Nur Irdayu Binte Wan Rozaimi Singapore This course is very interesting. The SketchUp itself is amazing! I used to study Design & Technology back in Secondary School for 5 years. We learned how to use the AutoCad. In AutoCad we have to constantly keep saving parts just in case things get mess up especially when fixing the parts together even though we have the mid-point. After watching the entire session here, certainly find SketchUp is definitely easy to use. The only thing I wish SketchUp has is having the option to view the dimension on the model itself. 2015-01-07 02:01:54
