What you'll learn

In this set of tutorials you'll learn how to create unique, custom styles for your SketchUp models using and Styles and Style Builder. We'll begin by working with the predefined styles available to us in SketchUp. We'll learn how to access the styles, edit the styles, and even mix and match predefined styles so that we can achieve the look and feel we desire. Once we're familiar with Styles, we'll take it one step further and work with Style Builder to create our own custom Sketchy Edges Style by generating our own line stroke template. By the end of this course, you'll be able to add style and uniqueness to the presentation of your models. You'll also learn how to add your own personal touch to your model by creating a Sketchy Edges Style generated from your very own hand-drawn line-work!
