SketchUp For Furniture Design

SketchUp for Furniture Design


In SketchUp for Furniture Design students can add to what they learned in Sketchup 1, by adding extensions on to their workspace completely transforming the interface and allowing for complex modeling. Students will learn how to use complex polymodelling and modifiers to create their own bespoke furniture. Students will additionally have 15 mins time 1:1 with their tutor after each lesson. You must have completed SketchUp 1 to qualify for this course. If you have learnt SketchUp from another institute, contact us to see if you are eligible for this course.
