Course Description

Google SketchUp is a free online 3D modeling program designed for architects, civil and mechanical engineers, as well as graphic artists involved in filmmaking and game developing. It is an ideal introduction for both professionals and students who want to learn more about this software program or 3D modelling.

ALISON’S free online course will teach you the fundamentals of Google SketchUp. In this SketchUp training course, you will be introduced to the navigation tools so you can orbit, pan and zoom around your model, then create a simple house with a few drawing and modification tools.

Accelerate your work process by creating a more detailed house with some drawing tips and the follow-me and offset tools. You will also use the tape measure tool to create reference edges, learn more about the offset and push/pull tools, copy objects and, finally, paint surfaces and bring in additional models from the Google 3D Warehouse.

CERTIFICATION

To qualify for your official ALISON Diploma, Certificate or PDF you must study and complete all modules and score 80% or more in each of the course assessments. A link to purchase your Diploma certificate will then appear under the My Certificates heading of your My Account page.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Upon completion of this course you will know the Google SketchUp features and functions that are necessary when designing different models. You will learn how to measure accurately when drawing. You will be able to use different views to help when building your model successfully. You will know how to use groups and components to separate various parts of your model. It will help you to understand the surface of your model, the edges and other features that will allow you to easily change it to a shape that is relevant to your model.
