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.
