Getting Started with Sketchup

Sketchup is a drawing and design program that is installed on the classroom computers.

I would like you to complete the following projects in sketchup:

This tutorial will lead you through the setup process and will have you draw a basic house design.

This second tutorial will have you draw a more advanced, detailed house.

After you have completed the above tutorials, try drawing a house of your own. Can you draw your own home? This could be tricky if you live in an apartment building!

Use sketchup to create a 3D model of your independent project. Sketchup is nice because it allows you to fully visualize a design before you build it.
