I want to make SketchUp accessible to everyone. Whether you love technology or have spent your career hand-drawing, my goal is to teach you in a way that simplifies SketchUp's powerful tools and lets you quickly add SketchUp to your workflow.
I was a presenter at the last National SketchUp conference. My SketchUp Classes are nationally certified by the NKBA and ASID for CEU credits. I have taught hundreds of students in my live classes so I know the questions and problems that are likely to come up and have included them in this course. I hope this eliminates many of the frustrations that come with an online class.
In addition, my business, See3D utilizes SketchUp daily to create architectural models and renderings for architects, design firms, real estate agencies, as well as creating plans for homeowners.
