Visualizing spaces in 3D is critical to the successful design of architectural spaces. With SketchUp, you
can create and edit 3D models that let you quickly explore the interplay of light, color, space and form.

At the completion of this course, you’ll be able to use SketchUp to: manage 3D geometry by creating and
manipulating groups and components; import information into SketchUp from Google Earth; use
Photomatch to add photographs to you model; create, edit, mix, and apply styles; create a basic
presentation.
