Product Description

Start building your 3D model today with a comprehensive guide to SketchUp 2014

SketchUp 2014 For Dummies is a user-friendly guide to creating 3D models, adding textures, creating animated walkthroughs, and more, using one of the most popular 3D modeling programs on the market. Fully updated to align with the release of SketchUp, the book guides you through the interface, tools, techniques, and tricks in SketchUp and SketchUp Pro, on both Windows and Mac platforms. Written for designers with no prior 3D modeling experience, the book provides beginner- to intermediate-level instruction in this powerful program.

With a strong emphasis on usability rather than features, SketchUp has found widespread success around the world. Available as a free download, the program allows you to get comfortable and develop your skills before investing in the Pro version's additional features. SketchUp 2014 For Dummies gets you up to speed fast, beginning with an overview of the basic concepts of 3D modeling before getting down to business with the software. Organized for easy navigation, the book can also serve as a handy desk reference for more experienced designers getting acquainted with the latest update. Topics include:

  • Using SketchUp 2014 to create 3D models
  • Printing on a plotter or 3D printer
  • Sharing designs via SketchUp 3D Warehouse
  • Exporting to another design package

The book also walks you through the creation of a detailed set of plans, and demonstrates how to give virtual "tours" of your design. A 16-page color insert illustrates the possibilities, and may just trigger your inspiration. Whether you're a designer, architect, engineer, or hobbyist, SketchUp 2014 For Dummies gets you started quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars SketchUp 2014 made easy by Aidan Chopra 14 July 2014

Brother Chopra has done it again by updating his classic book to SketchUp 2014. I really like his direct style and sense of humor.

I bought Sketchup 8 for Dummies in paperback a couple of years ago and keep it in my class room for my students to reference. It got me started with Sketchup, but then I had other things to do and didn't finish.

A couple of weeks ago, on an extended business trip, I had some down time and decided to spend it dinking around with Sketchup. Sketchup is pretty easy to learn, but like anything, you have to use it regularly or you just don't remember what you've learned. Since I didn't have the old paperback handy, I sprang for this in Kindle format. I'm pretty happy with the book. It got me back up to speed within an hour or so and by reading through the book I remembered to try, and then to more regularly use a number of techniques that make my use of the program faster and more fluent.

Not much to say, it's a good tutorial that someone starting out with sketchup should own. I'm glad I bought it.
