Description

Using imported foundation and structural plans, we'll model the foundation and the columns. Once those elements are in place, we'll use a displaced modeling technique I often use, to place beams throughout the building model. Along the way we'll discover a few simple tips and tricks that will help reduce your modeling time significantly! Finally, we'll take a look at how to quickly and efficiently model the building's exterior which includes glazing, windows, mullions, and even spandrels. By the end of this SketchUp training, you'll know how to use simple 2D drawings to create powerful 3D models that can be used for schematic design and even design development! Software required: SketchUp.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi there, I'm Pierre Derenoncourt. In this set of tutorials we'll learn how to use DWG files and plans to create three-dimensional models in SketchUp. We'll begin the process from the ground, and we'll work our way up. Using imported foundation and structural plans, we'll model the foundation and columns. Once those elements are in-place, we'll use a displaced modelling technique I developed to place beams throughout the model. Along the way, we'll discover a few simple tips and tricks to help you reduce your modelling time significantly. Finally, we'll take a look at how to quickly and efficiently model the building's exterior, which includes: glazing, windows, mullions, and even spandrels. By the end of this course, you'll know how to use simple two-dimensional drawings to create powerful three-dimensional models that can be used for schematic design, and even design development. So with that, I'm ready to get started. And I'll meet you in the next lesson.
