Note from your Instructor
If you’ve ever struggled with creating realistic, organic looking furniture items in sketchup this course is for you!
Learn the technique of Quad-Modeling to develop organic shapes that are often found in upholstered furniture. Native Sketchup tools do not allow for the creation of shapes and geometry to accomplish this, so we will be using PAID extensions Vertex Tools 2 and SubD (both from thomthom) along with the free extension Quadfacetools and a few other plugins.
Learn the basics of these three tools that are vital to quad-modeling, and then follow along with the tutorial to learn important techniques to model an upholstered arm chair based on a real world product. You will be shown best practices for creating a logical workflow, keeping your model clean and organized, and how to troubleshoot when your geometry develops errors and mistakes.
This is an advanced course. An intermediate level understanding of Sketchup Pro and it’s tools is required to follow along, including navigating your workspace, understanding of the Outliner and Components windows, and all major toolbar tools.
