SketchUp Training & Certification Course



SketchUp is a 3D design software developed by Google. It makes 3D modelling possible for everyone. SketchUp is used for a wide range of 3D modelling projects, like architectural, interior design, landscape architecture, and video game design. It has a set of robust toolsets and also supports third-party plugins. This means one can create visuals, animations, and models using images and architectural drawings from AutoCAD, PDF, Revit, and so on.
