Description

In this series of SketchUp tutorials, we'll take a step-by-step approach to creating a steel structural model. We'll work from the ground up and start with grids and foundations. From there we'll work with structural profiles located in your 3D warehouse. We'll learn how to organize building elements into layers as well as color-coded components. Once columns, beams, and joists are in place, we'll create our own custom, open-web joist component that we'll use to support the roof. By the end of this SketchUp training, you'll understand the importance of working with layers, colors, and components when it comes to modeling. You'll also learn how to create your own custom structural elements that may not exist in your library or 3D warehouse, making you much less dependent on components from third parties or the web. Software required: SketchUp.

Introduction and Project Overview
[Autogenerated] hi there on Pierre during court, and this editorials will take a step by step approach to creating a steel structural model in sketches will work from the ground up and start with our grids and even the foundations. And from there we'll work with structural profiles locating your three D warehouse, where it will learn how to organize building elements into layers as well as color coded building components. Once our columns, beams and even Joyce are in place, we'll create our own custom open Web Joyce component that we use to support our roof. So by the end of this course, you'll understand the importance of working with layers, colors and components. When it comes to three D modeling, you'll also learn how to create your own custom structural elements that may not exist in your library or three D warehouse, making you much less dependent on components from third parties or even the Internet. So with that, I'm ready to get started and I'll meet you in the next list
