If you're a casual CAD user or DIY devotee wishing you had a better way to visualize your architectural and material design ideas, then this course is for you. Instructor Scott Onstott uses SketchUp, a 3D modeling program, to help you explore your "What if?" design ideas using photos and 3D models. Model objects from photos, alter photo textures, model new objects, and explore different scenarios using the free version of this popular program.
- [Scott] Hi, my name is Scott Onstott, and I'd like to welcome you to exploring "What if?" scenarios with SketchUp. Have you ever wondered what a room in your house would look like if you redesigned it? What if you changed your living room fireplace, added new cabinets, painted the walls, and/or bought new furniture? SketchUp is the perfect program to explore "What if?" scenarios such as these using both photos and 3D models. Let's get started.
- Matching photos to spatial coordinates
- Modeling 3D objects from photos
- Altering photo textures
