Crash Course: Sketchup - Diego Orlandi
Sketchup is a very intuitive and useful 3D-modelling tool for visual artists. Its most unique attribute is its simplicity, as it can easily also run on outdated or low-performance computers and virtually anything can be modelled out of it. Of course, a powerful computer will grant even more modelling capacity. In this course you can learn useful tips and shortcuts first-hand from a docent who has used this software for multiple purposes - from abstract geometries to infrastructural engineering.
- Preparation of installation room for future exhibitions
- Animated walk-throughs
- Concept geometries
This software can be especially crucial when working under deadline for making very fast conceptual models, but also for in-depth detail or very large models, thanks to low usage of computer memory. Additional plugins or software can be applied when carrying out rendering and post-production work in order to achieve the best visual quality output. The software is freeware, and can be downloaded here.
Please bring a laptop and a mouse with a cogwheel (Maus mit Rad), and have software already installed and running.
The course will be carried out in English, by a bilingual German speaker Diego Orlandi.
