    Sebastian Guckes Russian Federation It was quick and fun, modelled one of my rooms after 3 lectures for interior design. If you want to try making some models for 3d-Printing, redesign your kitchen/bedroom/etc or make a 3d-model of/for anything (maybe animation) I suggest taking this course. It won't disappoint with its results, is enjoyable and doesn't take much time out of your schedule. 2015-07-22 17:07:18

    Richard Fiust United States of America Pretty helpful course for someone with rudimentary knowledge of CAD or SketchUp, helps get familiar with functions and tools. I learned new techniques and tips I wasn't aware of before, definitely help when moving on to more complex exercises. 2015-06-25 17:06:25
