Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of SketchUp for Architecture: Details.
- In this third series of SketchUp for Architecture,…we spend a little bit more time investigating…some of the finer details of using SketchUp…for construction purposes.…Building these elements, brick by brick and block by block,…gives us a greater insight into how SketchUp can be used…for construction purposes…and to explain the construction process,…especially when you link it back to Layout.…In the final part of this SketchUp for Architecture series,…I'll be spending a little bit more time explaining…how we can generate these 2-D details from 3-D elements.…
We won't be building these from scratch.…As part of being in architect or designer,…understanding the construction process…and then, using SketchUp to enable you…to generate these things…is all part of the course.…And hopefully, you'll find Detail is much more fun…when you link it with SketchUp and Layout.…Another aspect of it is using Layout…to create some more compelling visual effects…with this steel structure,…and we'll look at how SketchUp can nest components.…
