This class is for those who have taken a previous SketchUp class, or have some experience in 3D modeling with SketchUp. The class will start with a quick brush up on the basics then explore advanced topics for designing, planning and problem solving any woodworking project. Students will learn to efficiently model, modify, and manipulate parts, which will then be combined into basic furniture forms in ways that will simplify both the design and the building process. The information in a good design is a powerful tool for the shop, and Bob will explore ways to extract and use that information to generate printed working drawings, create accurate cut lists, and plan work sequences. In SketchUp, the design process is similar to the building process and students will learn how to create typical furniture forms, joints and details by applying shop strategies and how to use the SketchUp board stretcher and other tricks to rapidly add details. Design techniques and strategies will also be covered including methods to quickly create a model to determine proportions and appearance, and then use that model to create a completely detailed accurate representation of a project. Methods to create a model from existing two-dimensional plans or photographs and extracting and sharing information from a model with images or printed drawings will be demonstrated.
