Introduction and Project Overview
Hi there. I'm Pierre Derenoncourt. In this set of tutorials, you'll learn how to create unique custom styles for your SketchUp models using styles and also Style Builder. We'll begin by accessing the predefined styles available to us within SketchUp. While we're there, we'll learn how to access the styles, edit the styles, and even mix and match predefined characteristics within those styles so that you can achieve the look and feel you desire. Once we're familiar with those styles in SketchUp, we'll take it one step further and work with Style Builder to create our own custom sketchy edges style by generating our own lime stroke template. By the end of this course, you'll be able to add style and uniqueness to your presentation models and you'll also learn how to add your own personal touch to your model by creating a sketchy edge style generated from your own hand-drawn line work. So with that, I'm ready to get started, and I'll meet you in the next lesson.
