Note from your Tutor:
Over the last two years, I have built nearly 1000 3D models in sketchup, and as they say, practice makes perfect - or at least, it makes you a LOT better!!
I have picked up new techniques, amazing new plugins, and created a much easier way to follow my tutorials. Building 100’s of models has also helped me improve the flow and efficiency - which is quite important especially when time is of the essence. I can now build most models within an hour, which is quite an improvement from a few years ago - when a difficult model could take me 5+ hours to create.
It was important that I share and update my tutorials, as all this knowledge acquired over the last few years had to be shared. I not only modeled 100’s of models, I spent hours online testing, learning, figuring out the best plugins and techniques needed to model what interior designers like you will need to know.
This updated course covers the most requested items I am hired to model: Lighting is one of the most popular objects and surprisingly, also the easiest and fastest to model.
Next on the list of frequency are barstools, tables (coffee, end, and dining tables), mirrors, and kitchen hoods. I purposely don’t cover sofas as many models can easily be found online, yet with the tools given, you will be able to create them as well.
Within the course, I touch on most important things and techniques that you will need to know. It is up to you to practice and learn how to implement these tools in your models. The more you practice, the better you will be, and the easier it will be for you to understand how to apply what you have learned to each specific model. If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again. And as always, if in a bind, please reach out to me in the comments, and I will help you solve the mysteries of sketchup.
In the tutorials, I will show you how to use plugins to model almost anything you need to show in your rendering and in your elevation views. I always try to find the easiest, simplest, and fastest way to create a 3D model. Instead of hiring someone like me to model an item for you, you can save quite a bit of money and learn how to do it yourself.
I guarantee you that with a little practice you too will soon be able to create almost any type of furniture in sketchup with ease.
