INTERMEDIATE COURSE

THE NEXT STEP

Our Intermediate level course is available to students who have sat the Foundation level course or to those who are able to demonstrate a suitable level of competency in the basics of the software. 

 

Again, it's a one day course delivered one to one, (normally at the student's office), in small groups of 3-6 students, or online using video conferencing.  By the end of the day, you'll have learned a number of techniques key to incorporating Sketchup into your day to day work as a professional Garden Designer.

Subjects covered include:

 

-  Plotting hand-drawn surveys into SketchUp

-  Importing hand-drawn designs into Sketchup and using them as the basis for creating 3D concept models

-  Importing and using CAD files from third parties such as surveyors

-  Creating accurate terrain from spot heights

-  Sourcing and installing extensions and plug-ins

-  Creating a plant library for use in planting planning

As with the Foundation Couse, you'll also be given a comprehensive set of notes to take away with you and offered ongoing support once the day is over so you don't have to worry about forgetting anything you've learned.

TESTIMONIALS

I thoroughly enjoyed the day's course run by SketchUp for Garden Design last week.  John has created a brilliant programme for designers to learn SketchUp to illustrate both plan and 3D versions of their designs.

I found the session very informative and well-paced.  John has a great relaxed approach to teaching; I felt like he got it just right.  I didn't feel overwhelmed , but at the same time, I felt like I learned a great deal throughout the day.

Great day doing online SketchUp training with the brilliant John Brooks of SketchUp for Garden Design.  If you are largely self-taught in 3D modeling like me, his remote online courses explain so much of the fundementals and will make your life so much easier.
