What you'll learn
- Sketchup modeling
- 3d modeling details
In this course, we will learn the basics of sketch up and create a 3D model of house right from scratch in details. After complete modeling, we will have a quick lecture on V-Ray and we will render the exterior of that house in V-ray.
Lesson 1 - Introduction
In this lesson, we will have a short introduction of software “sketch up” by getting a little know how about this software, its capabilities and over all usage.
Lesson 2 - Hot Keys
In this session, we will learn some hot keys commonly used in sketchup. The purpose of showing these keys in start of course is to make students aware of these keys so that they could use through out the course and learn well.
Lesson 3 – Jump Start
In this session, we will have a quick jump start with sketch up. Starting with very basic tools and techniques that will be used in next sessions necessary to create the 3D model.
Lesson 4 – AutoCAD to Sketch up Conversion
In this session, we will learn how to import .dwg format to sketch up as .dwg is standard format of Autodesk AutoCAD which is one of the most commonly used format for 2D layouts.
Lesson 5 – 2D Layout Infrastructure
In this session, we will learn how to create basic infrastructure of our future 3D model by making a tentative 2D layout.
Lesson 6 – 2D Layout Openings
In this session, we will use previously drawn 2D layout and learn how to create some openings for doors, windows and vents.
Lesson 7 – Grouping
In this session, we will learn the benefits and usage of grouping. We will use previously drawn 2D layout and start creating groups for each section.
Lesson 8 – Wall Group
In this session, we will use the knowledge of Grouping learnt in last session to create a separate group for walls.
Lesson 9 – Group Assembling and Disassembling
In this session, we will learn how to assemble and disassemble groups for ease of access and editing purposes.
Lesson 10 – 3D Layout Openings
In this session, we will use previously drawn 3D layout and learn how to create some openings for doors, windows and vents.
Lesson 11 – Stairs
In this session, we will learn how to create a separate group for stairs and make 3D stairs from ground level to roof top.
Lesson 12 – Ramp
In this session, we will learn how to create a separate group for ramp and make 3D ramp along with few other areas.
Lesson 13 – Parapet Wall
In this session, we will learn how to create a separate group for parapet wall and make fencing wall throughout the border of rooftop.
Lesson 14 – Access 3D Warehouse
In this session, we will learn how to access different models of supported in sketch up from a free source specially created for Sketch up called 3D Warehouse.
Lesson 15 – Adding Door
In this session, we will learn how to add three different doors to existing 3D house model.
Lesson 16 – Adding Main Gate
In this session, we will learn how to add two different main gates to existing 3D house model.
Lesson 17 – Adding Windows
In this session, we will learn how to add window to existing 3D house model.
Lesson 18 – Making Scenes and Exporting Videos
In this session, we will learn how to make scenes, create animation and export video in MP4 format using Sketch up.
Lesson 19 – Adding Materials
In this session, we will learn how to add materials from Sketch up material library to our existing 3D house model.
Lesson 20 – How to Render
In this session, we will learn how to render Sketch up model using different software and plugins as Sketch up do not support in house rendering option.
Lesson 21 – Basics of V-Ray
In this session, we will learn how to use basics of V-Ray. We will have a jump-start to use V-Ray materials, lights and object like fur etc.
Lesson 22 – Rendering Sketch up Model using V-Ray
In this final session, we will completely render our existing 3D house model gradually. We will learn how to add materials, infinity plane, lights, fur etc. from basics.

Welcome to our Academy platform, your ultimate destination for online courses covering a wide range of subjects, including GIS, CAD, BIM and Digital Twins applied to the land development environment. We are committed to providing comprehensive education and empowering individuals to excel in various domains related to infrastructures. Whether you are a student, a professional seeking to expand your knowledge, or an enthusiast passionate about these subjects, our platform offers a diverse selection of courses tailored to meet your specific needs.
At our Academy, we recognize the significance of these disciplines in the infrastructures life cycle, from initial design to project completion. To ensure the highest quality of education, we have collaborated with renowned industry expert Golgi Alvarez and assembled a team of AulaGEO Academy experts to create, adapt to English and/or Spanish languages and curate cutting-edge courses.
Architecture – Engineering – Construction – Operation (AECO) is a harmonious blend of creativity and technical expertise. Our AECO courses encompass a broad range of topics, from Civil design principles to sustainable construction practices. You will gain proficiency in conceptualizing and developing designs that fulfill aesthetic, functional, structural and regulatory requirements. Our instructors, including renowned expert Golgi Alvarez, will guide you through the design process, helping you refine your visualization and communication skills. Furthermore, you will acquire a solid foundation in structural analysis and design, ensuring the safety and stability of your land development creations.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have revolutionized the way we collect, analyze, and visualize spatial data. Our GIS courses explore the power of GIS technology for mapping, spatial analysis, and data management. Using software like ArcGIS Pro and QGIS you will gain insights into interpreting and manipulating geospatial data, designing interactive maps, conducting spatial queries, and leveraging GIS for various applications, including land management, environmental analysis, and urban planning. Our GIS courses provide a competitive advantage in fields that rely on spatial data analysis and informed decision-making.
Civil Engineering plays a pivotal role in the design and construction of infrastructure. Our engineering courses cover a broad spectrum of topics, including structural engineering, transportation systems, and urban design. Using software like AutoDesk Civil3D and Bentley OpenRoads you will learn the principles and techniques required to design, construct, and maintain buildings, bridges, roads, and more. Our experienced instructors bring their industry expertise to the virtual classroom, providing valuable insights
Computer-Aided Design (CAD) is the backbone of modern design processes, enabling precise and efficient creation of 2D and 3D models. Our CAD courses cover a wide array of software applications, including AutoCAD, Microstation, and CREO Parametric. From fundamental concepts to advanced techniques, you will acquire the skills necessary to create, modify, and analyze complex designs, ensuring accuracy and optimizing workflows.
