During “The SketchUp Workflow for Architecture and Building Design” webinar you will learn to organize your design projects in SketchUp to better solve design challenges. Mike will present proven standards and best practices for any designer who wishes to use SketchUp Pro* to document and present designs from preliminary concept to construction documents. You will be exposed to techniques and strategies developed over years of professional use that will allow you to leverage SketchUp Pro into every step of the design process. Ultimately, this workflow allows you to solve problems and make common design tasks much easier. :
-Organizing a project folder and the digital workspace
-Leveraging utility scenes to communicate 3D designs in the most effective way
-Adding a location to a model
-Reverse engineering 3d and 2d site plans and site surveys
-Expediting the creation of as built drawings
-Creating context models
-Modeling real objects rather than cartoon objects
-Creating PhotoReal renderings
-Drafting construction documents
-Producing accurate shadow studies
-Generating dynamic schematic design presentations
About the Presenter
Michael Brightman started See Before Building, an all inclusive visualization and marketing service for custom home builders, developers, and architects using SketchUp exclusively. During this time he peaked interests at Google where he was hired to travel the country teaching his unique 3d design workflow at architecture firms, colleges, and even film studios.
Currently, Mike is in Denver creating dynamic 3d presentations and architectural drawings for a variety of projects through See Before Building. Mike is also the President and Lead Instructor at Bright Ideas Consultants, a Google Authorized Training Center. He trains major construction companies, architects, engineers, and design professionals to leverage Google 3d into their current workflow with his proprietary techniques.
