Sharpen Your SketchUp Skills with David Heim

sketch upThis hands-on class covers three ways to enhance your SketchUp skills:

One, creating accurate details and parts, such as stopped chamfers with lambs-ear ends, egg-and-dart molding, cabriole legs, curved and tapered legs, ball-and-claw feet, and ogee bracket feet. You’ll also learn how to use one pin to create a full dovetail joint in a jiffy.

Two, how to install and use plugins—separate apps that make SketchUp more powerful. Plugins let you easily generate a cutlist; create shapes that the basic tools can’t handle; find and fix problems in a model; round over corners; create complex joinery; bend parts such as back splats for a chair;> and much more This class covers the 12 best plugins for woodworking.

Three, how to use digital images to add realistic woodgrain textures to the surfaces of a model; how to import an image of a part such as a cabriole leg, scale it, and trace over it; and how to import a photo of a finished piece and trace over it to create a model.

Prerequisite: Introductory SketchUp class or equivalent.

Tuition: $125.00 Materials are included
