Architectural Designer
I have 20 years experience working and studying in the architectural field, I have designed dog houses to multi-million dollar homes and commercial buildings.  The last 5 years I have focused primarily on 3D modeling.  My 3D models are used for design development, marketing, Investor presentations and submittals for plan approval.  I have built over 1,000 3D models and I have found SketchUp to be the best tool for the job.  I decided to create this course to share some of the methods that I have used and continue to use to quickly model my projects.  I look forward to working and hearing back from students who take this course.
