Course: Trimble SketchUp Training Course

Course Description
This course covers the basics of Trimble SketchUp with a focus on the use of 3D geometry creation and external plug-in tools.

Class and Lab Hours: 40 (15 Theory, 25 Lab)

Pre-requisites: The individual must have the knowledge of basic geometrical shapes and their properties.

Job Prospectus: The individual possessing the skills taught in this course can apply as graphic designer, graphic animator, architect, landscape architect, woodworker, or in related disciplines.

Course Objectives:
Upon completion of the course, trainees/students will be able to:
  1. Create basic 3D geometry
  2. Create basic 3D renderings using V-Ray for SketchUp
This course focuses on the tools that majority of the users will need to work with Trimble SketchUp.

Major Instructional Areas:

  1. The basics of 3D geometric creation
  2. The basics of curved geometry
  3. Geo-locate models with Google Earth
  4. Use sandbox tools for advanced 3D geometry creation
  5. Create basic 3D renderings using V-Ray for SketchUp
Evaluation:There will be one exam that every trainee/student must pass with 80% or better score to get a certificate of completion from TIET.

Suggested Learning Approach
In this course, you will study individually or within a group. As you work on the course deliverables, you are encouraged to share ideas with your peers and instructor, work collaboratively on projects and team assignments, raise critical questions, and provide constructive feedback.
