3D DIGITAL MODELING: SKETCHUP - level 1

Organised by RogLab, Performed by POTI-POTI.org

19.06.2014

Training for fast 3D modeling with CAD (Computer Aided Design) software Sketchup will take place in RogLab. First level training will be held on Thursday, June 19, from 4pm to 8pm. You are cordially invited to apply!

Sketchup is a 3D modeling software ideal for introducing digital design because of its intuitive building and transformation tools and its user-friendly environment. Experienced CAD users will discover a powerful tool for extremely rapid 3D visualization and modeling. The Sketchup platform is the most widespread 3D modeling package currently available and has a huge community of users sharing their models and designs, as well as their technical support, through the Sketchup 3D warehouse.

You can download a very complete version of the software free of charge from Sketchup’s website.
