The Book

The Complete SketchUp Companion for Interior Design focuses on the skills and requirements necessary to design and explore interiors—from composing views to managing the structure of the model for tracking objects in schedules and keys. Organized by skill type, the book mimics the layered nature of the software, where a general base skill set is enhanced and deepened through more advanced, focused explorations and exercises. With concise explanations, and helpful boxed features ranging from basic to advanced topics, The Complete SketchUp Companion for Interior Design will be equally useful for beginning users and for those who already have knowledge of basic skills but find themselves in common “I-need-to-know” type situations in the design studio.
