Description

In this set of tutorials, we'll learn how to use the Match Photo method to create 3D interior and exterior models. We'll begin by importing an image into the modeling environment. From there, we'll learn how to use the Vanishing Point Bars, the Horizon Line and the Grid to match the photo to our scaled modeling environment, as accurately as possible. Once we've created our 3D model from a 2D image, we'll explore a couple other ways the Match Photo method could potentially benefit your modeling and design work flow for both exterior as well as interior projects. By the end of this course, you'll have completed your first model using the Photo Matching method. In addition to that, you'll have learned everything you need to model from photos and work with design options. Software required: SketchUp.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi there, I'm Pierre Derenoncourt, and in this of tutorials we'll learn how to use the photo matching method to create 3D models in SketchUp. We'll begin by importing an image into the modeling environment, and from there we'll learn how to use the vanishing point bars, and the horizon line, as well as the grid to match the photo to our scaled modeling environment as accurately as possible. Once we've created our 3D model from the 2D image, we'll explore a couple of other ways to use the match photo method in ways that can potentially benefit your modeling and design workflow. By the end of this course, you'll have completed your first model using photo matching, and in addition to that, you'll have learned everything you need to model from photos, and work with design options. So with that, I'm ready to get started and I'll meet you in the next lesson.
