SketchUp – Intermediate

April 6, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Workshop #2: Intermediate

The workshop will include one hour of instruction and one hour of free work time with help from the instructor.  Building on the basic skills of SketchUp, you will learn to use images and graphic styles so your designs are visually appealing and ready for professional use, such as in conference presentations, classroom materials, or your publications.  Tools for more complex shapes and intricate designs are covered as well as a host of shortcuts that can automate your work or guarantee precision in your designs.

Presented by: Gordon S. Carlson, PhD
Assistant Professor, Communication Studies
Director, Institute for New Media Studies

Everyone has seen 3D images or animations used for learning, but most people think creating them would be either too complicated or expensive.  In reality, drawing and animating in 3D is something anyone can do.  Faculty can create custom materials for their classes or research quickly and for free.  Staff can make information more accessible and their work more efficient and entertaining.

SketchUp is a friendly and forgiving 3D modeling tool because it can do many of the advanced capabilities a professional artist might enjoy, but only takes minutes to start using.  If you can draw a square on a piece of paper, you can create 3D designs in SketchUp.  Three workshops offer hands-on practical learning.  This isn’t theoretical, you will get your hands dirty and leave the workshops with finished products and specific skills useful to the entire FHSU community.

All workshops are held in the Forsyth Library computer lab.  Everything is provided, you don’t need to bring your computer.
