Learn how to create a texture-mapped 3D model of a building exterior using SketchUp.
- [Scott] In this course, we will construct an exterior model of a house using nothing but SketchUp and a series of photos taken around the building. We will match the perspective cues encoded in the photos to SketchUp's coordinate system, build the 3D model by comparing it with the photos, and finally, texture map the model using the same photos.
