- [Voiceover] Hi, this is George Maestri and welcome to SketchUp 2013 Essential Training. In this course, we're gonna take a look at SketchUp and the basic SketchUp interface that you find in SketchUp Make. Now we're not gonna cover the SketchUp Pro features, we're gonna save that for another course. But in this course, we're gonna learn the basic interface of SketchUp. We're also gonna learn how to draw and manipulate objects within SketchUp. Then we're gonna move on to measuring and labeling, as well as organizing scenes.
After that, we're gonna take a look at components and also how to work with textures and materials. And then we're gonna wrap up the course with rendering and animation. So let's get started and I hope you enjoy SketchUp 2013 Essential Training.
All of the lessons work with both SketchUp Make, the free version of the program, and SketchUp Pro.
