Overview

GOOGLE SKETCHUP

Trimble SketchUp which was earlier a subsidiary of Google is a 3d modeling software for multi-faceted design and modeling. It can be used for creating architectural, landscape modeling, Interior, Civil and Mechanical engineering design. It even goes beyond this and can also be used for creating 3d animation films and video games. This software is available as free ware and as a paid software with additional functionalities. It has a very huge collection of 3d models of objects that can be used readily while creating one’s own 3d design. Wizcrafter is the only Authorized training institute in whole North India that provides training in Trimble SketchUp.

Applications

The course aims at providing training on this software for developing low value projects which is mainly used by students and hobbyists. Unlike the professional software’s by Autodesk like 3ds max and others, this software is low on your pocket and is used for school and college projects. You have a 3d ware house where a huge collection of 3d models like that of a table or chair is already available for use. Our instructors will open your creative side and will help you develop the design of your choice by simply using the models available in 3d warehouse.

Technical Feature

Technical Feature

A practical introduction for interior designers and students. Covers the basics of creating 3D models before showing how to create space plans, model furniture, cabinetry, and accessories, experiment with colors and materials, incorporate manufacturers’ models into project plans, and create final presentations and animated walk-throughs for clients. Includes downloadable sample models and a tutorial video, sample questions and activities for instructors and additional online resources for students and self-learners.

There’s a reason SketchUp is synonymous with friendly and forgiving 3D modeling software: we don’t sacrifice usability for the sake of functionality.

SketchUp Pro is 3D modeling software that’s easy to learn and to use. Use SketchUp Pro to get owners, inspectors, architects, engineers and subcontractors all headed in the same direction. Start by drawing lines and shapes. Push and pull surfaces to turn them into 3D forms. Stretch, copy, rotate and paint to make anything you like.  If you want to be productive within a couple of hours, this is the solution you need. 

SketchUp Pro can bring in DXFs and DWGs from any standard CAD package. It can produce images, PDFs, CAD files, and HD animations. You can be sure that SketchUp Pro will plug right into your workflow.

Construction organizations use SketchUp Pro to quickly and effectively communicate 3D information to all project teams, enhancing collaboration and ensuring a shared vision. Using 3D models, one can make more informed decisions, communicate project details, and share ideas with colleagues and customers to reach a common goal.

Adding 3D text to your sketchup models can help add a level of detail that will bring your models up to the next level.  Because text is full of weird shapes and curves, it can be a pain to get what your looking for.  So let’s break it down.

SketchUp can animate scenes of a 3D model. Animations are a great way to show off your model from different angles or share shadow studies. For example, say you create a scene with a morning shadow, another scene with a noon shadow, and a third with an evening shadow. With SketchUp’s animation feature, you can watch the shadow transition from morning to evening.

Before you create an animation, create scenes of your model, each with different settings, as explained in the article, Creating Scenes. When the scenes are ready to be animated, you can create the animation in one of three ways:

Play an animation of the scenes in SketchUp.

Export the animation to a video file, such as .mp4, which plays on most devices.

Export an image set, which is a collection of image files that you can animate with video software.

V-Ray® for SketchUp is a 3D rendering software that combines real-time and photoreal rendering — all in SketchUp. From beginner to pro, Chaos® V-Ray has all the tools you need to visualize your SketchUp projects from start to finish.

When you are modeling a building in Google SketchUp, you can add interior walls to your building before switching to a 3D view. When you draft a floorplan in SketchUp, it really helps to ignore things like doors and windows — where a doorway should be in a wall, just draw a solid wall. You can add doors and windows after you extrude the floorplan into a 3D figure.

Here’s how you put in a few interior walls on the first floor of a sample house:

With the Tape Measure tool, drag a parallel guide from the inside of the entryway.

To do this, just click the edge from which you want to draw the guide, move your cursor to the right (to tell SketchUp which way to go), type a length, and press Enter.

, GOOGLE SKETCHUP

Draw a few more guides the same way you drew the first one.

Working from a pencil drawing, figure out the location of each interior wall and create guides to measure the space.

Switching to the Line tool, draw edges to represent the interior walls.

By using the guides, it’s easy to draw your edges correctly.

Don’t forget to zoom! When you have a jumble of edges and guides and you can’t see what you’re doing, just zoom in. Many folks forget to change their point of view while they work, and zooming makes all the difference.

Use the Eraser to delete your guides.

Use the Eraser to get rid of any extra edge segments.

The goal is to have the smallest-possible number of 2D faces to extrude into 3D walls.

Because the exterior-wall face — and the edges that define it — is part of a separate group, accidentally nicking it with the Eraser deletes the whole thing at once. If this happens, just use Undo to go back a step, zoom in a little bit, and try again.

Creating an ACT camera

To create a camera using ACT:

Select View > Tool Palettes > Advanced Camera Tools (Mac OS X) or View > Toolbars > Advanced Camera Tools (Microsoft Windows). The Advanced Camera Tools toolbar is displayed.

Select Tools > Advanced Camera Tools > Select Camera Type > categories > camera. Shaded horizontal letterboxing (1) or vertical pillarboxing (2) bars appear if your camera has a different aspect ratio than SketchUp’s drawing area. The area within the bars indicates the area viewable through the camera.

Sketchup pro training center

Click Create Camera (). The Camera Name dialog box appears.

Type a name of the camera in the Name field.

Click Done. A physical camera model (group) is created and placed in your model. You are placed in camera view mode, where you are looking through the camera at your subject. A crosshair shows the middle of the camera. Camera properties appear in the lower-left corner of the model. A tab with the camera’s name also appears. You can perform several functions on the camera, such as looking through the camera and editing camera properties in camera mode.

(Optional) Use SketchUp’s Orbit, Pan, and Zoom tools to physically reposition the camera in your model. Using the Zoom tool physically repositions the camera. See Repositioning an ACT camera for details.

(Optional) Use the arrow keys to pan, tilt, dolly, truck, pedistal, roll, and adjust the focal length while looking through the ACT camera. Moving and Aiming an ACT Camera explains how these actions work in detail.

After you adjust your camera, click Lock Camera (). This option ensures that you don’t move or alter the camera position or settings.

Context-click and select Done. You are finished creating your camera.
